KimJohansen (10350) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2008
[Vintage 2005] Hazy amber with huge head leaving laces. Aroma is sweet spicy with peach, plums, yeast and caramel. Flavor is sweet with loads of spices, fruits, madeira and caramel. Pronounced alcohol notes. Finishes light bitter.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 18, 2008
Almost half of the bottle came out when opening. Coppery colored with strong hazyness, huge vanishing yellow head. Rich aroma with hops dominating, orange and spiciness come up also strongly, still surprisingly sweet with some brown sugar notes. Alcohol comes up only mildly. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is even more hopped with dominating bitterness, spices and lemony orange are also strong in the start. This added-sugary note also here, still it doesnt do any harm. Aftertaste turns to sour one with some appricot and strong lasting hops.

daniele (5659) - ITALY - JAN 9, 2008
buna schiuma persistente meno abbondante delle sorelle e pi compata il naso decisamente frutato e lievemente alcolico in bocca impegnativa piuttosto corposa frutta spezie zucchero candito luppolo in finale in ottimo bilanciamento lalcol non troppo agressivo e sembra attenuarsi sempre di pi

Bov (9717) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 31, 2007
from belgianshop.com - the beer is nervously foaming out of the bottle ... cloudy copper-brown colour, foaming, foaming ... I needed 10 minutes to pour it; giant beige foam; aroma of caramel and dust; very sweet and full-bodied; thick with a solid bitterness, quite dry and long aftertaste of caramel with strong warming alcohol notes - weird

JoeinDahlem (1332) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2007
From the bottle at the Kerstbierfestival -- completing the Three Wise Men. Cloudy, golden orange, off-white head. Aroma is hoppy with notes of oranges, honey and evergreen. Dry, bitter flavor with a light sweetness. Thin, warming. Bitter aftertaste. Weaknesses in the body, maybe, but tasty and lots of character.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 8, 2007
Cloudy amber color; huge rocky head. Strong malty aroma. The flavor is malty too, maybe too much alcoholic and bitter at the end (bitterness from the caramel). Very good, but unbalanced.
