MarkoNm (482) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAR 1, 2014
A strong tasting beer, no surprise here. Bittery, quite some alcohol present, sligthly yeasty (a bit too much for my taste). Nice aftertaste, on the sweet / fruity side. A surprisingly neutral aroma, just some hops and a bit of alcohol aroma. Pours a clear dark coppery color with a healthy white head, solid and lasts for some time. A very decent christmas beer, but I will stick to others instead.

martjoobolut (644) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 12, 2014
0,33L bottle, BB 11.2015. Pours hazy dark brown-red. with nice white head. The head stays. Aroma: malt, dark fruits, yeast. Taste is sweet, dark fruits, raisins, slightly metallic, creamy. Alcohol is very noticeable, but not very unpleasant. Overall: would like to try aged version. It tastes slightly more unbalanced than Nocturnum. At the moment alcohol is too dominating, and the flaws are too obvious, but the ageing could change that.

Interesting beer. Good looking dark amber colour with thin persistant white head. Has that Chimay bannana smell with spices thrown in, especially cloves. Thickish palate, rich, sweet with some flemish sour notes. Does have that tripel feel but toned down. Very nice.

sinte (328) - Udine, ITALY - FEB 10, 2014
Bottle 0.33L. Slightly hazy amber body with large, frothy, off-white head, mostly diminishing with some nice lacing though. Moderate malty (caramel, light roasted) aroma with notes of red fruits, raisins, spices and alcohol. Moderate sweet flavour with a light-to-moderate bitter character. Medium body with oily texture; average carbonation; moderate-to-heavy alcoholic feeling in the finish.

Aroma of clove ,oak and dates. Clearish reddish copper, thin white head, minor lace. Taste is sweet plum, clove, and oaky bitterness. Palate a little fizzy, a little thin. Overall, decent.
