Vargatul (138) - Bucharest, - OCT 11, 2012
0.33 l bottle. Dark burgundy colour, clear liquid, short and fine beige head. Aroma has notes of dried plums, raisins, caramel, fir buds syrup and baked apples. Sweet taste, full body, average carbonation, long and bittersweet finish.

Canmoore (304) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2015
Pours a rich dark amber, nearly opaque with little to no head. Aroma includes rich malty notes of chocolate, coffee, and some darker fruity esters. Tasting notes include roasted grain, chocolate, fruity esters, and some pleasant butterscotch diacetyls. Not bad!

Padchenko (122) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 28, 2015
Pours with a nice head. A very tasty sweet double with caramel and fruity tones. Smooth and full.

Bottle. Pours an almost amber-brown colour. Aroma hits strongly with caramel, syrup - generally very sweet. Flavour is fruity, chocolate, citrus with a roasty hint without either taking out the balance. Very light mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Good.

nihtila (1159) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2015
26.12.2013. Tumman punainen, tuoksussa karamellia. Karamellimaltainen maku, jossa mukana rusinaa/karpaloa? Miellyttävällä tavalla makea. Jälkimaussa rusina tai joku vastaava. Mukava ja helppo.

veceo (710) - CROATIA - MAR 15, 2015
Clear brown color with reddish hue, big tan head. Lots of lacing. Aroma of malt, caramel and slightly fruity. Taste of grape, yeast, dark fruits, malt, caramel. Medium body, flat carbonation. OK, I guess, but really nothing special.

Metalchopz (2501) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 12, 2015
6-pack from the LCBO. Pours a real dark amber colour, going on the copper side. Big beige head that has good stay and full lacing. Aromas of caramel malts, bad grassy hops which gives out metallic notes and decent helpful spices. The taste is completely not was expected for a dubbed. Very sweet with not much at all. Reminds me of those sweet non-alcohol brews with bread malts, honey and club soda. Then I read the ingredients. Glucose syrup and aromatic caramel. Nope, not for me. Looks good, smell alright but taste right down nasty. An insult to use the word Abbaye with this one.

SimonD_Bel (10) - Liege, BELGIUM - MAR 12, 2015
Couleur rouge-brune, mousse moyenne essentiellement de petites bulles. Odeur sucrée, fruitée. Goût caramélisé, boisé, arômes de fruits rouges. Légère amertume au palais, goût de café décelable. Reste assez peu en bouche, si ce n’est par son finish alcoolisé. Bière agréable mais n’étant pas réellement dans mes goûts avec ses notes de fruits rouges.

rami_pl (242) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 10, 2015
Z kranu w blizej nieznaej knajpce na pieknej, podany mocno za zimny i w firmowym goblecie. Ladna piana, ale szybko sie redukujaca, ciemno-wisniowe , prawie nieprzejrzyste. Glownie owocowe aromaty, troche slodow, troche przypraw i niestety nie wiele wiecej. w smaku dosc slodki + to co z aromatu. niska goryczka, alkohol - mimo, ze wcale niezbyt go wiele - latwo wyczuwalny. Wrazenia specjalnego nie zrobil, przykrosci tez zadnych nie odnotowalem

Carlisle (150) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Draft. Fresh plum aroma. Deep ruby color with quickly dissipating head and substantial lacing. Sweet fruit up front with plum most prominent with some grape notes. Thin mouthfeel is biggest detriment. Long finish with cherry notes and subtle alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
