darioklc (705) - Karlovac, CROATIA - FEB 23, 2016
Miris je jako slab, tek mali osjet nekakvog voća i mrvica mirisa alkohola. Okusom neto nalik nekakvim trenjama/vinjama i isto sa laganim notama alkohola. Očekivao sam da će me previe peći alkohol ali ugodno sam se iznenadio.

zenkis (754) - Ogre, LATVIA - JAN 30, 2016
Solid, drinkable Belgian Dubbel alike. Alcohol well hidden- only a bit comes "out of" in aroma. Medium to light body. Some sugary notes in flavor. Im not WOW anymore about every Belgian beer.

Attractive dark amber with ruby highlights. Lasting creamy light beige head. Complex. Belgian yeast goodness. Fruits and spices. Great body. Great balance. Lots to love.

Complex beer. Light and dark fruit aspects, some holiday spice. Full bodied but easy to drink. Delicious.

commonshawn (1048) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2015
Big bottle with commonmac. Mahogany with medium white head. Sweet spice aroma and boozy aroma. Sweet malt, some spice, clean finish. Good Christmas spice but not overwhelming. Bubble gum sweetness. Alcohol is not as prominent as it could be, which is good. Medium body. Really nice beer. Really nice.

commonmac (1045) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2015
Big boy bottle purchased at Total Wine and Spirits in Roseville. Poured into Belgian snifter glass. Darker hued amber copper color. Aroma has Belgian funk with some dark fruit notes. Alcohol warmth right away. Taste actually does have a piney, holiday feel to it. Dark fruit like prunes or raisins working well with a toffee/caramel backbone. Candied sugar comes through mid consumption. Finish is warming and comfortable like a winter sweater. Very good beer for a special occasion.

thewolf (12079) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle, bought @ Belgianbeerz. Pours deep, chestnuts brown with a small, staying, creamy beige head. Aroma has vinious, caramel, coriander, light oxidation. Low to medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has sweet malts, nice toasted caramel, esters, oxidation, vinious and warming. Nice and elegant.

alteregoo (925) - POLAND - DEC 22, 2015
Piana początkowo gruba i mydlana, szybko opada do kilku milimetrw ładnej, drobnej koronki. Barwa miedziana, przypomina herbatę, mętna (pływają drobinki drożdży). Aromat głwnie owocw suszonych (gruszki, jabłka, śliwki, daktyle), karmel, mid spadziowy, przyprawy korzenne i likier. Dość płasko... W smaku likierowe, słodkie, winogronowe, jest też w tle niewielka kwaskowość czerwonych owocw. Przypomina ekstremalnie nagazowane Barley Wine. W afterteasie jakiś keks, rodzynki w spirytusie, makowiec i brandy. Goryczka niska, ziołowo migdałowa. Nagazowanie wysokie, szampańskie, mocno musujące w ustach po każdym łyczku. Alkohol wysoki, nie do końca ułożony. Zważywszy na prawie maksymalne noty na ratebeer, ekskluzywną butelkę, limitowana ilość, premium w nazwie i całą otoczkę wokł tego piwa jestem zawiedziony... Wiem, że po 2-3 latach leżakowania byłoby bardziej ułożone i szlachetne, ale ja kupując piwo chcę mieć wybr - wypić od razu bardzo dobre lub po kilkunastu miesiącach rewelacyjne. W tym przypadku spirytusowy alkohol zniekształca całe bogactwo i złożoność trunku w odbiorze...

Ysok02 (1000) - MOns, BELGIUM - DEC 20, 2015
Robe ambre, mousse peu abondante. Nez explosif sur les fruits confits, la vanille. Bouche lattaque explosive, de la puissance, du fruit, de lonctuosit mais une sucrosit un peu trop marque. Une bire coeurante, pas du tout mon style.
