Much thanks to Dmac for sharing this one. Pours out a dark brown, slightly copperish with a large foamy white head. Aroma is a bouquet of roses, peach, brown sugar, nutmeg and some yeasty notes. Taste is complex with a very nice mouthfeel. Floral notes with fruit, yeast and some nice spice going on in there too, very well hidden alcohol content and extremely well balanced with many different flavors going on, and they all work. Well done

750 ml bottle from glouglouburp, thanks Dany. Pours a deep dark reddish brown with a large thick full creamy beige head. Aroma of flowers and perfume, flroal hops, very sweet, brown sugar, cinnamon, perhaps a touch of mint. Full bodied with average carbonation. Flavor very similiar to the aroma with notes of prefume, lavender, spicey yet oh so drinkable. No trace of the 10% ABV in either the aroma or the flavor. Great beer thanks for this suprise Dany.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Bottle generously shared by mreusch. Pours a bright, clear, reddish-brown with a creamy, light tan head. The nose is a spicy, cinnamon stick, brown sugar, round malt and some other indistinguishable spice note that makes me think of Christmas. Medium-bodied, creamy and silky with a lightly dry mineral finish. A beautiful blend of sweet, round malt with a supporting dry, lightly funky yeast note and the same great blend of spices found on the nose. This is a damn fine beer. Thanks a ton for sharing this with us, Matt!

2007 bottle shared by mreusch, and man was I blown away by this beer. What a pretty pour with a thick tan had that quickly fades into a nice lacing. The color is a clear dark brown. Aroma is killer. At first pour its a brown sugar and sweet dark bread malts. However, with just a few moments that fades into almost a completely different beer. Aroma becomes a spice dominant, almost like a Belgian-y Christmas beer. Taste is light black raisin bread with woodsy sides and a lightly dry yet sweat finish. Has a nice mouthfeel with a medium light body and a few spikes of carbonation. However, I keep feeling the beer on my cheeks. Very wonderful beer and thank you very much Matt.

2007 750ml bottle, with a big thank you to Glouglouburp! Pours a clear dark amber with reddish tint, nice fizzy tan head that maintains a thin covering, spots of lace. Aroma is spicy, with light citrus hops and too many other components I can’t seem to adequately describe. Flavor is also spicy with a more subdued citrus hops, and all around is very impressive. This beer pushes my personal boundaries of spice and sweet more than any other I’ve come across and am very impressed, excellent stuff. Thanks again Dany!

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 27, 2008
750 ml bottle - thanks after4ever!! pours thick and reddish brown; huge tan head brings out some serious aromas of cream, spice and vegis; slmost like liquid thai food for a bit; drinks with full body and flavors or dates, chewy citrus and little spice; nose is to die for and the flavor is just about there too; not quite the love fest of the Lupulus, but this is still a kick ass beer on its own

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2008
Bouteille 750ml (2007). De couleur brune-rouge et voilée. Nez de levures épicées (clou de girofle, moyen d’anis, léger de muscade et de poivre, notes de cannelle et de coriandre) et fruitées (prunes, léger de dates, notes de raisins et de pommes), malté de caramel sucré, moyen de houblon herbeux (herbes fraîches) aux notes florales ainsi que des notes d’alcool et de noix. Moyenne-ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-fort et une texture crémeuse. Goût de levures fruitées (prunes, dates, léger de pommes rouges, notes de cerises, d’agrumes et de raisins vineux) et d’épices (clou de girofle, muscade, moyen d’anis, notes de cannelle et de coriandre) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de caramel sucré avec des notes de pain et de sucre brun. Parallèlement, l’on retrouve un léger goût d’alcool aux petites notes réchauffantes jusqu’en finale, où l’on assiste également à un regain de goût épicé légèrement asséchant (poivre, traces de gingembre) ainsi qu’à une moyenne amertume de houblon herbeux (herbes fraîches), légèrement floral et aux notes terreuses. Post-goût long et un peu sec, moyennement amer de houblon herbeux et légèrement floral avec une goût fruité (moût de raisins, pelures de prunes et de pommes, notes de zest d’agrumes), un léger goût d’alcool (notes de muscade toujours présente) et des notes de noix.

Lubiere (10451) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2008
A dark brown ale with a thick brown moka head. Beautiful to see. In aroma, sweet caramel with loads of orange peels, vanilla and hops. Fragrants is the word. In mouth, a very sweet syrupy ale with cloves, cinnamon, treacle, and sustained hops bitterness, tingly spicyness. Rich and smooth in mouth. Roasted notes in finale. Wonderful. Bought at Jovi, Gatineau, 12.99$.

Sample from wetherel’s (looked that one up now) bottle at RBSG; Nose of flowers, fruitiness, caramel, and ginger; clear amber with a small beige head; flavor of dark fruit, brown sugar, and caramel. Guess I was the only one still rating when this one was opened!
