JorisPPattyn (7796) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2007
No head, clear cognac colour. Whisky nose, whisky malt, distilled if anything. Raisins, sweet, brandy, sultana’s, smoked malt in the finish. Syrupy, oily MF, alcoholwarming; A bit too sticky. That was to say something negative. OTOH, it is a rich, powerful brew. And it costs the earth, but I still recommend it.

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2013
From a test tube, many thanks to fonefan. Unclear, coal brown body, no head, no lacing. Sweet aroma of dried and ripe fruits. The taste profile is also sweet with prunes, plums and raisin. Sweet jam-like added by sherry-like alcohol. Full bodied. Nice in smaller amounts. (hotel room, Copenhagen, 24.05.2013)

Ibrew2or3 (6768) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 26, 2010
Big, huge, massive thanks to SHIG for trucking this beauty across the pond for us Tampa geeks to lush over. I owe you one Shawn! Pours still clear copper without the slightest sign of a head. The aroma pushes up sweet dark fruitiness like figs, prunes and plums as well as caramel and some mild booziness. The taste is smooth as silk and sweet like nectar and coming across as a rich sweet dark fruit juice reduction of plums, pears and figs mixed with iced cider and a modest level of creamy caramel candy. This one is yummy sweet nectar goodness.

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 6, 2010
Cheers to Shig for the share. pours amber, no head. aroma and flavors, lots of dark fruit goodness here, sweet candi caramelized sugars, hints of floral hops hinting toward a blossom louthfeel. abv is subdued even at 13% this beer is going down smoothly. The caramel sugar reminds me of baked apples leaving a nice sirupy finish.

Thanks to SHIG for the share. Pours amber red like the other Xyauyu bottles, but had a bit more head. Nose is booze with spice, pepper, caramel, lots of malt, and some vinous fruit and character. Palate is very sweet and mouthfeel is almost syrupy, but this beer has so much depth and flavor to it. Very good.
