PhillyCraft (5896) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Bottle, pours black with white head, couple inches in size, with nice lacing. Aromas and flavor of brown sugar, hops, spice, and clove. As it warmed some rye bread and caramel malting is evident. Medium body. Nice yeast profile.

obguthr (5712) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2013
Weak fig nose, mild clove. Clear rust, medium tan head with little retention. Sweet plum and fig with blackberry and clove overtones. A bit like cough syrup though. Fig is significantly more dominant on the back of the palate. Rather vinous at times

JulienHuxley (5640) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep, rich , clear red brown color with creamy beige head. Aroma of subtle sweet malts, candi, cherries, plums and raisins - nothing short of the best Belgian strong dark ales (St.Bernardus, Rochefort, Westvleteren). Flavor is malty, chewy fruity notes, dried figs and raisins, just a hint of molasses, light belgian yeast spice. Alcohol is felt but not smelled or tasted, just perfectly warming. Quite a surprise, a great one at that.

thornecb (5538) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Pours deep mahogany into a Trappist glass. Mocha head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Molasses, brown bread and dark alcohol-soaked pit fruit aromas. Sweet caramel and clove upfront turning hot raisin brown bread and chocolate in the lasting finish.

ClubGonzo (5468) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle sample @ RBNG-14. Deep ruby-hued brown body, medium creamy off-white head. Nose is caramel, Norwegian brown cheese, deep malts, cream, chocolate and hints of raisins, plums and prunes. Taste is deep malts, raisins, caramel, red fruits and hints of plums and burnt sugar. Full body, medium carbonation. Very smooth and nice, as mostly from AleSmith. Probably the best beer from the Grand Tasting session at Ratebeer Norway Gathering 2014 IMO.
