mcberko (6297) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 11, 2013
750mL bottle, courtesy of the great DHVL guys, pours a hazy dark copper amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma of spices, Belgian yeast and some toasted malt. Flavour brings out some slightly sweet toffee, burnt dry toasted malt, and some various spices. Pretty well-rounded, with some nice spicy touches and dry body. Good stuff.

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 20, 2013
33cl bottle at home, thanks to Nienke. Darker brown coloured beer with lots of carbonation and a small off white head. Special herby and slightly alcoholic hinted aroma with some malty veggy hints. Full sprinkling palate. Finish is again rather veggy malty with a sweet bitter alcoholic balance. Ok

Theydon_Bois (8276) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2013
Bottle shared with Bruce, Rilester and Leighton at the DHVL lodgeings 22/03/13. Obscured chestnut brown witha thin white head. Nose carries dark fruits, toffee, light soap, touch of yeast, bread dough, light spice. Taste comprises dark fruits, a very light sour tang going down, brown sugars, background hoppage, toffee. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, some bitterness in a dryish finish. A very drinkable night cap and the alcohol doesn’t come crashing through in any shape or form for an 8% beer!

Cuso (4414) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 15, 2013
Bottle from Pallieter85, many thanks. Hazy dark brown color with small off-white head. Fruity aroma with earthy notes. Very strange mostly alcoholic taste with caramel, sweet malt, chocolate, some earthy notes and little bit harsh bitterness in finish. But somehow I liked it.
