TET (1641) - FINLAND - SEP 11, 2014
A dark brown beer with a medium and beige head. The nose has lots of raisins and prunes, some sweetness of dried fruits, hint of warming alcohol. Taste have dried fruits, prune, nice sweetness, some herbs in the end. Medium bodied, strong carbonation. Surprisingly light to drink even the strong alcohol %. Balanced beer with dried dark fruits. Easy but tasteful.

33cl bottle @ Keller Smell has some wine alcohol notes. Otherwise it’s rich and sweet. Appears coffee-black with almost no foam at all. Palate is quite light in a plesent way a bit coffee like. I would drink it again soon.

skortila (4505) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 8, 2014
Bottled. @ home. 33cl sample. The aroma has caramel, vanilla, sambuca/bitterkoekjes. Nice. Dark brown coloured beer with an off-white-beige, thin head.The taste is very sweet, boozy and has caramel, biscuit, raisin, some grape. Very alcoholic afterburn. Seems they really like that at Honsebrouck. Pitty, because the flavours in this beer are interesting and pleasant.

sfuen03 (332) - Barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 6, 2014
Tan dark, quicly diminishing head on top of a very dark, slightly hazy, body. Intense aroma of raisins, plums, banana, clove, caramel. Medium to strong body, soft carbonation, alcohol very well masked and only felt in the amazingly warmly sweet, complex, long finish. Taste of licorice, black fruits, caramel, nuts. Very complex and deep.

Bottle. Dark brown with a hint of redness. Tan head. Deep aroma of brown sugar., winter fruit , bread , alcohol esters. Rich deep sweet taste like a Christmas cake heavily booze laden. Great example of the style. Very drinkable.

Moebbels (315) - FINLAND - AUG 29, 2014
A clear very dark red body with a quickly dissipating tan-coloured head. Nose has sweet aromas of citrus peels, coriander, raisins, caramel and sherry. Taste is sweet and fruity with a dry and bitter finish. Carbonation is on the high side and the mouthfeel is rich, heavy and filling. The alcohol is readily detectable as a nice warm feeling, but is not harsh on the palate. This is a nice, well-made beer for slow enjoyment.
