dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2005
Light brown head on a deep dark amber-ruby body. Very full taste, fruity aroma and taste, very nice indeed. Berries, citrus, caramel and roasted malts combine to give an exceptional experience. First-class beer, it reminded me of Duchesse de Bourgogne. A masterpiece of a beer. Too bad the bottle was a measly 25 cl !

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 7, 2005
Spicy balanced and malty. Plums liqourice and mangoes. Nice roasted caramel malts and toasted bread with good biterness and a bit of acidity.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - JAN 15, 2005
Dark amber with a medium light brown creamy head. Fruity aroma and taste. Very light sour taste. The finish is bitter.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2004
Pours a tall frothy off-white head on a ruby colored body. Full and nice aroma of sweet malt, berries, oranges and yoghurt. Weird flavor with lots of berries but also a harsh middle. Almost like a bad dessert wine (!) Tones of citrus and alcohol. Interesting....

TheBeerGod (5335) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Bottled. Purchased at Le Petit Vaudree. Dark ruby brown. Medium tan head. Nose is fruity and spicy with a dark fruit note. Rich aroma. Taste is fruity and flowery with cocoa and some sweetened malt notes. Body is abundant carbonation with a spicy feel to it. Finish is sweet and malty with a nice spicy note at the end.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2004
Chocolate cherries and almond paste adrift on an alcohol pond...Yeasty harshness hides a few candies, plums and raisins under its aromatic branches...Between rough and rustic charm for a Christmas offering...

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2004
Enticing aroma of brown malts and sweet candi sugar with gentle spice and yeast notes... Almost like a mild Noel. Clear brown with fine tan head that recedes slowly to cover. Heavy malt flavours float on soft, small-bubbled carbonation. Full-flavoured with not even a trace of alcohol apparent. Long, sweet, fruity and spicy finish manages to never be cloying. Flavours remain distinct yet counterpoint each other very well. Soft palate and medium body with moderate carbonation. A very elegant treat and a wonderful surprise. Bottle enjoyed with MartinT and Rastacouere.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 26, 2004
1cm beige head over a deep dark brown body. Aroma is quite inviting and compelx, almost unexpected. Aromas of yeast, anise, cocoa, powder sugar, spices.. lots of malt in there for a Belgian. Quite flavourful, coffee tones on the tongue. 9% is almost transparent. Spicy bitter finish (cloves, Christmas spice). Fitting medium body, moderately high carbonation. Great take on the style!

Ungstrup (29846) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2004
A red-brown beer with a huge beige lazing head. The aroma is sweet caramel with notes of coriander. The flavor is of alcohol, caramel, and prunes with lemon-soda in the background and a dry finish. The mouthfeel is very soft.

JorisPPattyn (8032) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 14, 2004
Dark yellow-brown head, creamy; dark brown, clear beer, with deep ruby shine. Vanilla, marzipan, glue, bit woody - general nasal impression of burnt, bitter-caramel malt with overlying sweetness. Taste fully confirms the nose: harsh bitter woody flavours with overlying sweetness. The sweetness masks that the roasted, bitter tastes even have a bilous character. Full-bodied, slick mouthfeel. Slight alcoholburn. Aftertaste again gives this marzipan aroma - this time obviously made from bitter almonds. Awful beer -I cannot understand people really like this. So harsh, unrefined, unbalanced...
