After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity not wall adhesive light brown foam collar which was fine and evenly of structure. The beer also contained no carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a thick dark brown color and a light acid taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppybitter with a roasted malty touch. This beer smells light citrusly.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 13, 2009
Chestnut color with a tall, bubbly tan head. Dark caramel and sugars swim in the aromas. A touch of nutmeg and cinnamon in the nose as well. Quite thin and bubbly in feel. Nearly to effervescent. Bubbles seem to carry the liquid away without giving the tongue a chance to partake. Mildly sweet with caramel and gently toasted malt. Some bitters in the middle with spices, orange peel and nutmeg. I’m not catching much alcohol and this bottle is quickly finished with the light feel. Stomach is warming, but that is it. This is a fun brew that I could partake in the any weather, even though it seems geared toward the winter months.

pompelmoes (89) - BELGIUM - NOV 27, 2009
Intens brown coloured beer with small beige foam. Aroma is interesting with a fine note of smoke and malts. Taste malty with hints of honey, cereals and fruits, it ends with a slight sournes and some touches of wood.

JoeMcPhee (8746) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2009
Deep brown pour with a thick and very persistent, tight brown head. The nose is lovely… quite vineous with a touch of barrel character, vanilla and a hint of light tartness. The vineousness is quite pronounced as it starts to warm up, with a bit of cognac-like sweetness. A little bit of licorice and black pepper as well. Fairly spicy with a long oaky/tannic finish. It’s kind of unusual but it really strikes up a nice balance of sweet and tart. I could see this pairing very nicely with wintery beef stews.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 11, 2009
On tap: Pours a dark murky mahogany with a frothy, clingy-lacing light tan head. Aroma of black cherries and toasty dark caramel with a hint of tartness and biscuity malts. Starts with average fullness and a mild dark caramely sweetness with some earthy light fruity tartness before a slightly vinous oaky finish. An interesting brew that seems to be between styles.

vtafro (4042) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - OCT 4, 2009
Ruby brown pour with some white head. Aroma was heavily influenced by candy sugar flavor given by the yeast base. Also some fruit flavors and spices. Nice.

bierkoning (10738) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2009
Bottle. Gusher. Dark brown color. Oak and smoked ham in the aroma and flavor. Malt flavor with pear. Medium bodied. Vinous, alcohol fairly well hidden. Unexpected flavors in this Belgian Strong ale.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 11, 2009
(Bottled) Clear dark red with a huge, slowly descending, lacy and beige, cloudy head. Aroma of dried fruit, caramely malt, hints of oak. Dried-fruity, sourish-caramely and slightly ashy flavor with some oaky tannins, berries, and hints of vanilla. Medium body, slightly thin, not much carbonation after the foam has settled. Not extremely enjoyable, and somewhat thin. Alvinne should also learn the art of CO2 in beers - nearly all of the bottles seem to be gushers of some sort.

marcus (6988) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 24, 2009
This dark brown ale poured with a thin tan head and a smoked malt aroma. This is a highly carbonated beer with a sour cherry and oak flavor.
