Hidden_Pooch (261) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 23, 2014
This will warm you up in the morning. Especially with the cute little pink elephant. Aroma is of caramel, mollases, and different Christmasy spices. Tastes of fruit cake, anise, nutmeg, and caramel. Quite a mouth feel to her, somewhat syrupy and sticky. Coats the tongue so, you remember what you are drinking.

HIGHB4LL (421) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Bomber from the Bar. Appearance: light pinkish color, slight cloudy, white head, good lace. Aroma: earthy leaves yeast, anise, slight leather, light fruit, sweet malt. Palate: light body, lively carbonation, dry finish. Taste: sweet yeasty and malty with light tartness, to an anise sweetness that lasts for a bit. Overall, good balance, but just not the biggest fan of the anise in this beer. Much bigger fan of Nocturnum.

Beersiveknown (2725) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAY 6, 2014
bottle from houhai bottle store, beijing
Dark brown, fluffy grey tinged head, sweet sticky, cake like, molasses, warming booze, fruity. Perhaps a little heavy for me and doesn’t stack up to the trappist greats but a good wee winter warmer.

Rodriguez (232) - Quito, ECUADOR - APR 15, 2014
Kind of similar with Tremens, but amber, lots of carbonation and soapy head. Subtle caramel and fruity flavor, hoppy and dry, light body. Nice beer but overcarbonated
