UXO (277) - CANADA - OCT 20, 2014
Pours clear amber-brown with two fingers of light beige head diminishing gradually to a thick cap, minimal lacing (4/5). Nose is... complex. Pureed peaches, sugary malt, dark fruit, spice (8/10). Taste is moderate to strong sweet malt, moderate bitter, distinct sour/metallic edge (7/10). Medium body, smooth, soft carbonation, with a lingering bitter finish and gentle alcohol warming (4/5). That’s a big, complicated, not entirely approachable beer. The nose is utterly unlike anything else I can remember trying, and my wife disagrees, but once I came up with “baby food peaches”, that’s where I stayed. There’s an edge on the flavour that is definitely unexpected and not entirely welcome - I’m going with “sour” but it could less charitably be called “metallic". Not entirely sure on this one - have several to cellar, and maybe that’s the right approach. As it stands right now, and for the price, not a clear home run. (15/20)

Countbeer (4561) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle: Thanks Pushkinwow: Served in a wine glass: Thin beige lacing on top of a hazy darker ruby colored beer. Nose of lots of balanced spices, cloves, speculaas spices, anise, some dusty prunes, light malt and some caramel tones, with a sprinkle of olives. Flavours of malts, bitters, some spices, some cloves, erc etc... Balanced and well done! Aftertaste bitter, spices, malty, light caramel/dark fruity touch. Low carbo, light creamy close to silky mouthfeel, more than medium bodied and a creamy texture. Delious stuff! Even with the spices, specially on the aroma, flavour is quite balanced. Well done!

First, it features a grape candy sweetness, then a soapgum (gomme au savon) bitterness appears. Even some trace of a metal harshness and of course the spices come back . Long after swallowing, the spices are still there, reminding me of a rootbeer. The palate is very round.

omhper (19698) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2014

Idiosynkrasie (3942) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2014
750ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, darkest brown colour, ruby red glimmer, average, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Yeasty aroma, sweet-ish fruity notes of overripe apple, figs, dark berries, hints of orange, very cautious hints of ginger and cinnamon, a herbal touch. Taste is sweet malty, with milk chocolate touch, fruity, notes of dark berries, orange, orange peel, hints of cinnamon and ginger, a herbal touch; smooth, soft palate with gentle carbonation. Very well balanced, well-dosed spices, slightly too sweet.

jksipa (391) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a very dark brown with a large pillowy khaki head that lingers and leaves tight lace. The nose is lots of caramel malts with plenty of fruit; green apple, raisin, apricot, plum, dark berries and some green grape. There is also plenty of noticeable spice including cinnamon, cloves and a touch of ginger. Medium sweet start accented by some tartness in the middle and a light bitterness in the finish. Mouth is medium full and creamy with sharp carbonation. Really enjoyable.

lusikka (6355) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2014
Bottled. Thanks veliemboys. Pours a dark amber brown colour with a small head. Aroma is very sweet with figs, caramel and spiciness. Flavour is very sweet with overly ripe fruitiness, residual sugar, figs, strong cinnamon notes, nutmeg and green apples. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. Interesting flavours but this is just way, way too sweet to be enjoyable.

75 cl bottle. Bottled on 11.11.2013.
Pours clear dark red color with a large off-white head. Quite unique aroma with herbs, grassy notes, faint hops, some wood and dark berries. Sweet caramel and dark fruits on the flavor, sourish notes, some dark malts, lots of spice notes, dark berries and wood, faint yeasty notes too. Strong carbonation, a bit too sweet but the spices are nice.

tiong (3855) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 20, 2014
750ml bottle

Bottled 2013 11 11 - Pours dark brown with a smooth head. Aroma of ripe fruits, malts, earthy notes, spices and yeast. Taste is spicy, malty and earthy with some ripe fruitiness, syrup, yeast and toffee. Finish is sweet and syrupy with some ripe fruits, yeast and loads of spices. Too sweet and stuffy for my taste.

laiti (5809) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 20, 2014
75 cl bottle @ home, bottled 11.11.2013
Aroma is unusual but nice with sweet fruity tones and licorice. Also ripe apricot tones, grass and herbal tones. Flavour is sweet with peppery spices, herbal tones, licorice and ripe fruits. Palate is a bit too foamy. Pleasant spicy Belgian strong, although perhaps a bit too sweet; finishing whole bottle would be a slow process.
