ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Bottle. Pours a brown color with an persistent ivory head. Dark fruits and sweet malt in the aroma. An earthy smokiness kind of fills out the background of caramel and toffee. Tons of malt in this beer, I don’t perceive any hops. Dry finish with a lingering, and somewhat astringent, candy aftertaste.

mgajdaczewa (1723) - Katowice, POLAND - JUL 13, 2016
Szkockie po belgijsku. Mocno dubblowy aromat, suszone owoce, karmel, brązowy cukier. W smaku raczej wytrawne, rozdynki, karmel, znów lekkie nuty brązowego cukru, goryczki raczej nie ma, ale pijalność całkiem ok. Alkohol troszkę zbyt mocno z przodu. Lubię takie!

Icedwarf (1312) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2016
Roodbruin bier met schuim. Smaak is krachtig, zoet en kruidig, toffee, rozijnen en iets van anijs.

phfyysik (781) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JAN 29, 2016
0,75L bottle (bottled 21.11.2015). Pours dark brown with small head. Nose is a bit sour, some raisins, caramel, plums, slightly roasted malts. Taste is quite raw, with sour-bitter notes, otherwise quite same as the nose. After has some more spicy notes. Carbonisation is little bit too high - it kills quite a lot. Should let it stay in cellar for a while in next time. Currently seemed too raw.

Hanoi (849) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2016
Bottle. Nose is toffee, candied fruits, spice, hints of plums and apples, a little bread, yeast, orange. Taste is woody, orange, slight cream, spice, and cloves, bread, caramel, prunes, chocolate aspects, a little yeast.Gentle booziness in the finish. Hints of brown sugar and a little nut in the finish and the faintest hint of roast. There is a lot going on in the flavour, it’s a very good example of the style, perhaps a little thin. For some reason I don’t love it, I can’t explain why, it plays all the right notes... but seemingly not in the right order.

Franckg (1279) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 31, 2015
Robe brune foncée très trouble avec un mince col de mousse beige qui s’estompe rapidement. Arômes de caramel, baies rouges, miel, malt légèrement grillé. Un peu d’epices également, muscade surtout. En bouche, baies confites en partant suivi d’un malt grillé et caramélisé. Touche de chocolat au lait, miel, dattes, houblon, muscade et anis. Les saveurs quittent rapidement pour nous laisser sur une finale fade et aqueuse. Texture légère et corps mince et décevant. Carbonatation trop élevé. Décevante.

Rask0lnikov (786) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 25, 2015
High white head, which stays quite long time. Dark browne colour. Some honey and alcohol in the aroma. Some raisins and honey at first. Caramel and spices, raisins afterwords. Quite light-bodied, quite well balanced, highly carbonated interesting beer. Still, something is missing.
