Koelschtrinker (14586) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 23, 2013
Mild kräuterartig süßlicher Malzantrunk mit geringer, nicht unpassender Oxidationsnote. Im Mittelteil intensiver werdend, mit dem Malz steigern sich auch die Kräuternoten, spritzig, vollmundig. Geringfügig schokoladig zum Ende, die Süße zieht sich ein wenig zurück, wodurch das Bier noch runder wirkt. Langer schokoladiger Nachhall mit deztner Hopfennote. 8/9/10/11/8/11

Grzesiek79 (3684) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 15, 2013
Dobre ale jednak nie rewelacyjne piwo swiateczne. Piekny kolor, piana i niebywala metnosc. Piwo w smaku przypomina spruchniale drewno z nuta zepsutego egzotycznego cytrusa. Owocowy posmak znika zaraz po przelknieciu gdyz jest cierpki i wytrawny finisz, troche chmielny i rozgrzewajacy ale podczas degustacji alkoholu wogole nie wyczuwamy.

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Bottle from Park Towne Bev. Pours hazy brownish with a small tan head, big glass carbonation. The aroma has a lot of spices.. cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel. The taste is really light on flavor.. almost off.. with some spices but no real malt backing. Not good.

Bottle. This was one of the less inspiring Belgian Ales I’ve ever dropped coin for.

BeerViking (3589) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2013
An old 8% bottle. Dark amber with little head, ginger on the nose and palate, a little orange on the nose too. Body’s a bit musty but also rich like an old fruit wine.

Abio (1823) - Waasland, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2013
Brown, dark amber coloured beer. Head should be some bigger and hold a bit longer. Spiced at both the smell as taste, and not totally outbalanced. Misses a boost for me. It’s not bad.

Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2013
December 2010. From bottle. Poured a hazy amber color with a white head. Flavors of spice, malt and caramel. An OK beer but other better options out there.

hayduke (4282) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 18, 2013
From a 11.2oz bottle out of a Christmas Gift pack purchased as Paul’s Grocery in McCall, ID. Poured a cloudy dark copper color with an off-white and very little lacing . Nose of dark caramel malts and belgian spicy yeast. Medium body. Lively mouth feel. Flavor is roasted caramel malts, the fruity yeast, and some spices. Dry finish. Good drinking.
