KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2008
Hazy brown with large beige head. Spicy aroma with roasted malt and caramel notes. Sweet flavour with roasted malt, cardamom and cinnamon notes. Ends sweet. Reminds of a typical Danish Christmas cake.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - AUG 29, 2008
Presa da Pier al Duca il 24 sera; un’altra ottima birra ’calorosa’ di Ecaussinnes, con dolcezza non stucchevole e una complessità notevolissima.

BoBoChamp (5358) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 26, 2008
33cl, from brewery, not balanced, not complex, too sweet, hazy, good head, nothing special, needs to be revised

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
Lubiere (9765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2008
A dark ruby brown ale with a nice lacing light moka head. Interesting aroma of coriander, lemon, cinnamon and maple. In mouth, two layers of sweetness, the one from candy sugar, with its peated wood notes, typical of Belgian browns, the other layer, the sickly sweet sugar syrup, or like Paspoe said, cough syrup sweetness. Still, nice curacao notes. Alcohol burn in final. Bieropholie import, BB 21/12/11

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2008
Bottle@Home. Raisin and jasmin aroma. Ruby color, beige small head, good lace. Very sweet, light bitter, jasmin, spiced, maple syrup? Very sticky, sparkling, light warming. Too sweet but overall interesting.

BartC (726) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - DEC 4, 2007
A dark brown beer with a nice lacy beige head. Aroma is very vinious. Also some sourness and after a while some dark fruits. Nice sweet fruity flavors. Some alcohol (at the end), burned caramel and malts. Maybe a bit to much?

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) A beautifully warm, reddish beer with a dense, off-white head. Unusual, spicy and sweet aroma. Full body, quite sweet with some burned caramel. And also some strange accents that mostly remind me of cough syrup. Subdued bitterness. An interesting and unusual beer, but I’m not sure if I actually like this. 211007

Eructoblaster (2955) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2007
Bottle - 330ml. Dark brown hazy body with average carbonation and a decent beige bubbly head. Malty/hoppy aroma with yeasty and brown sugar notes. Taste carries sweet (maple syrup) and fruity hints. Ends with an enjoyable warming finish.

3.3
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2007
Clear dark/brown almost rubis poor with a frothy beige head. Aromas of cental wood, roasted malts, cinnamon, nutmeg, maple syrup and a nice bushy smell to it. Very sweet palate with a balanced bitter mouthfeel. Added orange flavors with a celery salt twist. Good effervescence and a medium body. Again very sweet but balanced enough to even things out.

Bottle, 33 cl. (bought by Willems) Deep dark brown with reddsih shine, with a huge, beige an head. Aroma , anise, or drop, yeasty and blended spices. Medium body (almost full). Taste is sweetish with very anise, roasted malts.
