erickok (3410) - Tours (and Paris), - DEC 5, 2012
Dark ruby red with small beige lace. Dark fruits, apple pie, bit of fresh yeast. Taste has cookie spices, medium sweetness and generally a wintery feel to this one. Not as rich in flavour as I expect form this brewer though. Great looks but overall a bit too thin an not as exciting as I was expecting. (75cl bottle from De Bierwinkel Leiden)

glennmastrange (2203) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle. Moderate aromas all aroung, with roasted and cereal for the malt, cooked orange for the hops, dough for the yeast, with raisin, toffee and brown sugar. Head is small, frothy, off-white with no lacing and is almost fully diminshing. Color is murky brown. Flavor starts moderately sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, slick with a fizzy carbonation. This Scotch Ale is full of dark fruit with just the right amount of sweetness.

Buongiorgio00 (718) - - JAN 30, 2014
Bella pesantella, ma all’aspetto dolce e alcolico si contrappone un gustoso carattere fruttato e speziato che la rende più piacevole e bevibile. Birra da fine serata e da inverni freddi e implacabili!

rauchbierlover (588) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 16, 2014
Dark ruby body with a minimal white head. Aroma is wild cherries, cinnamon. Taste is complex like a xmas beer should be: fruity, spicy, warm. Medium body, texture a bit oily, soft carbonation

Wolfbass (882) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 4, 2014
L’aspetto è davvero meraviglioso, un ambrato carico tendente al marrone, con sciuma compatta. Il naso è molto belga, ma con più carattere e potenza alcolica. In bocca nonostante un buon corpo, va giù piacevolmente.

Miked1687 (608) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 31, 2013
