clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - AUG 9, 2003
This beer pours a dark amber with ruby highlights and has a moderate fluffy head. The aroma is sweet with some spices. The flavor is very smooth - sweet fruit and toasted malts. The palate holds the toasted malts and is very nice. I really enjoyed this beer.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2003
Deep amber and cloudy yet a firey red when held before bright light. A thin tan dense head sits atop. Has a slight plumb aroma and I detect a bit of raisin as well. Full bodied and creamy with a slight dryness in the finish. Flavor is malty and slightly sweet. Not as fruity tasting as the others I just rated. Alcohol is well hidden. Quite smooth yet not as complex as the Rochefort 10 or St Bernardus Abt 12. Still an excellent ale that is full bodied and flavorful.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2004 Dark reddish brown colour. Malty and fruity aroma. Very sweet flavour. Figs, raisins, plums and caramel. Quite higly carbonated. Too much liquorice for me.

stefanberggren (135) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 9, 2003
Wow what a punch this glass packs! Really nice carmel nose and flavor. Deep mahogany and lightly tanned forthy head. First sip brought sweet, raisin and plums with almost a ginger aftertaste...could be the fact that I was eating ginger snaps with this one (which I recommend by the way) Really nice after it warms up, altough it has a bit too much alcoholic feel to me. I would let this one rest for a couple of years....

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2003
Sweet nose--banana, plums, honey, touch of alcohol, innamon or nutmeg. Dark brown with a tan head, quite effervescent. Semi-sweet, some caramel and banana notes. Though it's oddly a bit watery for the wealth of flavors, still a very nice beer.

iam (369) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2003
Wonderfull aromas of Caramel, raisins and malt. Pours a cloudy deep copper colour with a creamy but rapidly diminishing head. Full body. Flavour is a bit sweet up front but then tastes of beautifull spiciness and finishes with a nice bitterness.

Indra (2626) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 20, 2003
Intriguing aroma, full of estery yeast, raisin, fusel alcohol, spices, faint clove, and plenty of dark malt sweetness. Murky reddish brown color, with a very slight ring of foam. Flavor begins with a rush of sweet maltiness, very faint caramel and dark bread, red grape, plum and perhaps lemon, possessing a yeast bite and some noticeable tartness and spiciness. Smooth, lightly oily and alcoholic palate, with a modicum of acidity. Medium bodied and very low effervescence. I actually found this somewhat reminiscent of Trois Pistoles, though I may be the only one.

Ungstrup (29477) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2003
The aroma is slightly sweet with notes of yeast, redcurrant, and other berries. The color is an unclear red, and it has a small fast disappearing head. The flavor is very sweet, soft, yeasty, and complex - yet boring - it misses some kick (it is too soft). Not a beer that I'll go back for.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 15, 2003
Ruby amber liquid with a foamy off white head. Fruity malt and earthy yeast aroma. Fruity flavors with mild spice. Nothing stands up and take notice. Quite standard.
