bluevegie (3057) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 19, 2006
Merry Xmas! Deep dark ruby body with a large light tan head. Some cinnamon on the nose, also some liquorice and hints of dark fruits. Smooth taste that is a bit thin, metallic, rich chocolate notes and hardly notice the alcohol except for a slight warming on the finish.

pubbe (493) - Højbjerg, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2006
Bottle. Pours dark brown with light brown mostly lasting head. Aroma offers coffee, burnt malt and a little metallic note. Flavor adds a little sweetness and anis. Average finish. Well made beer, but have had better Biere de Garde.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 13/20
petermadsen (390) - Vesterbronxxx, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2006
Long lasting off-white head and a nice but weak aroma of roasted malt, fruit and a slight cinnamon and choko note. Flavour is a bit thin with subttle roastiness, fruits and just enough acidity to clean your mouth. The body is a bit thin and the overall score is reduced a bit due to the lack of balls.
