Koelschtrinker (9996) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Sehr eigen wirkender herber Antrunk, der trotz der hier noch merkwürdig erscheinenden Gewürznoten langweilig erscheint. Im Mittelteil ist das Bier weder würzig noch in besonderer Weise aromatisch, zum Ende trocken hopfig. Den Sternanis merkt man im Mittelteil nur leicht, dennoch wirkt er zu überproportioniert. /7/7/6//6

tderoeck (4069) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 15, 2011
13/04/2011 33cl bottle @ home - BB: 07/10/12 (2011-147)

Note: it shouldn’t have come as a surprise after having had the same experience with the Blonde, but it did anyway as the gusher started pouring upon opening.

Dark purple and pretty cloudy beer, huge towering beige head. Appears aery and fragile at first, but then turns to a more solid, even creamy texture. Non adhesive. Aroma: lots of overripe to even rotting bananas, bit chemical, other ripe to rotten fruits, a faint hint of hops. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: overripe bananas, cloves, a little hoppy towards the end. Aftertaste: more overripe bananas, some mocha hint, still the cloves again, a bit of hops and sugary caramel. Bit cloying. Totally out of balance.

sebletitje (6326) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 28, 2011
bouteille 33cl. Bière de couleur blonde, col blanc. Arôme malt caramel, houblonné avec note de levure. Fruitée - raisins, abricot et agrumes, note de renfermé/levure. Une bière dont je trouve la carbonation un peu trop haute. Malt reste léger avec une touche de caramel, sucre brun. Houblon fleuri, fruitée, note épicée au fini, alcool réchauffant. Ai eu un peu de mal à cerner cette bière.

Hansen (6200) - Assentoft, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2011
When opened it half of it went out of the bottle, overcarbonated? Brown and murky, big head, fully diminishing. Has a malty and sweet aroma, lots of spice, cinnamon. Flavor is heavy sweet, light bitter finish. Creamy texture.

Abio (1519) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JAN 23, 2011
Dark brown beer with a nice holding medium sized head, sticks nice to the glass. The smell is spices, lots of them. Anice, pepper,... also some alcohol and malts get trough, but mostly sweetness and spices. The taste is to sweet, to start, to go to a light dry-bitter-earthy aftertaste where the spices starts to dominate the whole palate. A real winterbeer, good spiced, maybe even overspiced, a bit out of balance.

JorisPPattyn (7716) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 19, 2010
Yellowish head, dwindling over hazy, dark-chestnut coloured beer. Pure speculoos spices, as allspice, clove, cinnamon, star aniseed, etc. Spiced, dark malts, oversweet chocolate, liquidized speculoos. Well-bodied, rich MF, perfumed but little real flavour outside the spices. Typical Ecaussinnes.

thewolf (10770) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2010
Bottle. [thanks Henrik NG]
Pours muddy brown with a medium, frothy, beige head. Aroma has caramel, esters, milky chocolate, light yeast. Medium carbonation, fine creaminess. Flavour is sweet, light vinious, milky, esters and a bit of yeast and nuts. Quite elegant with a fairly dry finish with a hint of liqourice.
