Xstream (203) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 Lovely beer. Loses foam quickly, but other then that very tasteful. Molasses base with nuts, raisins, chocolate, toffee, date and a slightly licorice like molasses smooth finish. Has a hint of alcohol, but not overwhelming. Very smooth and sweet beer with great flavor.

gEUS (1462) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 22, 2013
750 ml bottle - pours amber brown with a small lingering beige head. Nose is nuts, bit of cognac & port, some raisins. Body is fairly light with no balance. It’s sweet and watery at the same time. Taste is a bit of madeira... Kind of fail.

tasted the 2012 edition from the bottle, dark brown, almost no foam when poured in in a normal way, strong caramel scent, strong caramel taste (bit burnt) and you feel/taste this one is 11° in alcohol - nice one!

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Dark red-brown with a fast tan head. Nose is fruity and leans toward cherries, with a little booze and alcohol. Flavor is a little less extreme and had the usual belgian strong elements. Finish is long and sweet. Good ale.
