Bottle. Pours hazy dark brown with a huge frothy off-white and creamy head. Aroma is spicy and herbal, with some nice malty notes as well. Taste is good nutty malts, fruits with a light spiced edge. Long and clear taste, quite good.

MrHangover (3061) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 6, 2012
Draft @ Brugs Beerfestival ’12. Brown, murky coloured beer with creamy, yellow head on top. Aroma of dates, malts and chemicals. Flavour is full, thick and again loaded with sweetness of the dates. Interesting brew.

suprchunk (2510) - Crestview, Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2011
Dark, dark, ruby-tinted toffee colored pour. Small off-white, almost tan, head. Minimal lacing. Rich malty aroma with notes of raisins, molasses, and alcohol. Tastes of molasses and malt water. Slight vanilla and caramel. A sour taste and moutfeel with some sugary sweetness. Not bad.

In mouth, a sweet caramel and butterscotch, with light coffeee notes, rather light bodied and simple. Bottle at Poechenellekelder, July 12 2011. 4.30 euros/330 ml bottle.

jaghana (4416) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUL 26, 2011
Bottle 33cl, a dark amber beer with huge brownish head. Nose is on spices and quite ginger like. Aroma is malty, toasted like, medium sweet with a fruity body on cinnamon, ginger and lemony. Not bad at all ! A bit too much carbonated, some acidity at the finish, I did drink it at 19° should have had it a bit lower.

JorisPPattyn (8242) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 29, 2011
Huge, very dense cream-coloured head, uncannily stable over gorgeous ruby to chestnut beer. ’Thick’ sweet-salt nose, in fact, remarkably like Chinese Hoi-sin sauce, or aromas as soya-based plum sauce; generally fruity and sweet-spiced with a salty hint. Taste is a again a combination of sweetish fruit (plums again) and warm spices (cinnamon, allspice, five spices,...) The saltiness suggested in the nose reduced to some mineral to metallic flavour. Spiced bitterness too, as from the pure spicetastes. Faintly woody, dried fruit, brown candi sugar. Everything suggesting a rich palate, but that is actually nearly thin, too watery to my liking. Quite surprising and, indeed, original brew. Despite the thinnish mouthfeel, the balance is finally satisfying. One to be tried, certainly.

tderoeck (5721) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 14, 2011
8/05/2011 33cl bottle @ home - BB: 9/2012 (2011-200)

Dark brown beer, pretty cloudy, some chunks settling at the bottom. Light beige head, falls down fast to a thin creamy layer on the surface. Aroma: caramel, dried fruits, bit of mocha. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: fruity, sour, green apples, caramel, a hoppy bitter touch in the end. Aftertaste: more of that weird tartness, sour cherries, very little bit of mocha. Totally not what I was expecting. And not a big fan, but I give them credit for making such an unusual beer.
