Poured into a tulip glass. Dark cola brown with a thick, dense head of tiny brown bubbles. Aroma is malty and roasty with some chocolate and dark fruit notes as well as some Belgian candi sugar. Flavor is similar to the aroma with a lot of roastiness as well as some dark fruit and some of the Belgian yeast influence, and some piney hops towards the finish. Body is surprisingly light for the bold flavors and alcohol content. Has a slightly sticky mouthfeel and a long roasty/piney finish. This is dangerously drinkable for 11%. Overall this is an awesome beer with an incredible amount of flavor and alcohol that is still fairly light bodied and easy to drink.

Vignale (3213) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 19, 2016
Flaska från SB. Drygt 3 år gammal (obviously). Tucker att den har lite för många dåliga ålderstecken: lite unken källare, mögel och blöt kartong, för att vara riktigt okej. Alkoholen är också väl dold, ja den känns t o m en aning platt. Har druckit fantastiska lite ålder Santas tidigare. Det här var inte av dem. Tyvärr.

mzaar (2711) - Varberg, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2015
Flaska. Mörkbrun öl med ett långvarigt beigt skum. Dofter av karamell, läder, torkad frukt och alkohol. Smakinslag av karamell, mjölkchoklad, nöt, läder och en försiktig citruston. Alkoholen värmer. Medelstor kropp. Mycket njutbar.

Boutip (5806) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2015
Bottle: Poured a deep brown color ale with a large foamy head with some retention. Aroma of residual sugar notes with some dry plums notes and some caramel notes is pretty enjoyable. Taste is also dominated by dry plums notes with some caramel malt, some light chocolate and dry fruits notes. Body is pretty full with good carbonation with no real apparent alcohol. Interesting beer that did age pretty well.

A dark brown ale with a thin lacing brown head. In aroma, sweet fruity caramel malt with light chocolate, fruity esters, treacle, maple syrup, alcohol warmth, very nice. In mouth, a sweet caramel malt with light treacle, scotch character, grassy hops, alcohol warmth, nice. Bottle from Spinrsx.

From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Tried it when it was young and it was too sweet and too boozy even for me. Still decent brew.

kevinator (1850) - The Colony, Texas, USA - AUG 5, 2015
I thought this was great. Great bread pudding aroma with a combination of sweet and alcohol. Soft deep brown color with a tan head. Full and weighty palate. Flavors of sweet bready malt with caramel, toffee, some nuttiness and spice. Ends with a lingering booziness. Great for the holidays.

Draft to taster from notes. Pours dark brown with reddish highlights and a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have dark fruits, cocoa, roasted malts, a splash of coffee, Belgian yeast, mild spices, and still a bit of alcohol. Soft on the carbonation. Decent enough.
