ZodiacM (100) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2014
Geschonken uit een beugelfles, een donkerbruin bier met bijna witte schuimkraag. Eerder een dunkler bock dan een belgian strong ale. Geur van mout en noten. Smaak van gebrande mout, bloemen, sinasappel en heel licht honing. De nasmaak is zoetig, mn door de sinasappel. Een bijzondere bok, prettig van smaak door de smaak en afdronk.

Dark brown beer with a large beige head that quickly disappears, medium carbonation. Taste is fruity, caramel, dark fruits and natural honey. Nice.

tricksta_p (1201) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2014
Aroma of malts, caramel, dark fruits, sugar, honey. Flavour is massively sweet and cloying, with a dry light bitter finish. I found the sweetness a bit much, but the aroma makes up for it. Body is nice and full. A polarised beer for me, one to admire not so much to enjoy regularly.

Xstream (166) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2014
It’s like a honeyed dubbel or stout mix. Sweet, treacly with a full body with multiple layers of sweetness. Mild malty and rye bitterness that cuts through the sweetness. Nice and easy, and more depth to it then i thought at first.

Syfher (62) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 15, 2014
Brown one, bottle of 33cl. TEH Christmas spiced honey beer. One of the greatest, nothing more to say. I personnally don’t like it much cause of her strong taste, but cold it must be a great surprise. Cheers !

eduardovl (891) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
500ml thumbler served from tap at Bruxelles Café - Lausanne. A: Pours a very dark amber color forming a good one to two fingers creamy beige head. Good retention, forming and leaving some thin lacings around S: Strong notes of dark fruits, spices and honey. Sweet grains. Bready Belgium style yeasts T: Sweet upfront. Sweet caramel, dark fruits (plums, mainly), spices (cinnamon?) and honey. Brown bread. Belgian yeasts. Slightly earthy. Light hoppy bitterness in the end. Strong Belgian character. A bit alcohol warming M: Medium and bit molasses body. Medium carbonation too. Malty bittersweet aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Good winter ale. Recommended [ BA Review @ 1/26/2013 ]

On tap @ Cafe Olivier in Utrecht. Presented in a coffee mug-like glass with handle, which was weird. Nice spicy flavour and aroma, touch of honey. One of the nicer boks I’ve had.

spacecube (906) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2014
330ml bottle, pours deep deep red, almost black with a bubbly off white head. Aroma has cherries, figs, almond, honey, biscuit malt, liquorice, sweet to start but balances very well with moderate, short bitter finish with cherry aftertaste. Nice complex aroma, full body, oily feel, average carbonation.
