thirstyrabbit (1157) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown body, medium to small tan head. Herbal aroma with herbal tea plants like oregano etc. Sweet caramelly taste with raisins, mild cinnamon and more herbs. Pretty much exactly the kind of beer you get when you imagine a dark Belgian strong ale with different kind of herbs. Sugary finish. Maybe a bit too sweet.

Mainuh_man (243) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours clear red-brown with a frothy off-whte head that lingers with decent lacing. Interesting, and different aromas on this: apricot, nutmeg, caramel . Complex flavor profile: starts with yeast and some herby hop flavor, goes to caramel in middle, then to a resiny hop finish that transitions to bitter yeast flavors and cloying sugars. Medium body with an slick mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Overall, an interesting beer with a lot of different flavors and aromas to offer.

MonsterMagnet (331) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle, bb 1-2015. Pours dark ruby with an off white head. Aroma: chestnut, rye, dark bread, nutmeg, cinnamon, cardamom, liquorice root, brown sugar, herbal, even a little floral. I love the aroma, there?s so much in there. Taste: dark bread, rye, juniper, sage, raisins, more spices, herbs, vanilla. Heavy sweet, light bitterness, medium body, soft creamy texture, nice finish with lingering herbs, spices and grains. Very nice, and I love the aroma. Would?ve been even better if slightly less sweet.

Bottle at Kafé België in Utrecht. Medium brown with a good beige head. Aroma is juniper, rosemary, pomegranate, elderflower, honey. Medium bodied, fruity and entertaining on the palate with a floral, herbal and lightly boozy warming finish. Taste is cranberry, glacé cherries, juniper, rosemary, elderflower, honey. First gruuit I've enjoyed.

Ulysse (145) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
red, brown, tan foam, hazy, lightly sour, light body, thin feel, This beer’s got a lovely foam giving it an attractive appearance. Unfortunately, you need to strain your nose to find an almost inexistant smell. The texture and body are too weak.
