Moolesen (378) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Brown with a tanned head. Yeasty aroma with some dried fruit and at the end some orange peel. Slight metallic taste (disturbing) but also a very rich taste with lots of jam and dried fruit. No hops discovered. Rather long finish which is medium sweet.

Shark_Pants (536) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 25, 2015
Clear cola colour with frothy beige head that leaves good lacing. Aromas of caramel, toffee, dried figs, dates, plums. The taste is fortunately less sweet than the smell - the dark fruits from the aroma are all there, cherries too, toffee, solid earthy hop bitterness to help counteract the sweetness. The light to medium body and lack of stickiness also helps offset sweet flavours. 9% ABV unnoticeable. Solid belgian strong.

Muggus69 (1770) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 24, 2015
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 11.08.2016 Hazy bronze body, holds a small creamy beige head. Nose quite rich - burnt caramels, dark candy sugar, nuts, raisins, sultanas, dates, touch of cocoa, sweet spice. Full body, richness builds, slightly syrupy, low carbonation somewhat creamy, velvety. Has a bitter-sweet thing going on the palate - lots of rich dark candy sugar with earthy undertones, dried fruits in abundance, woody sweet nutmeg clovey spice cuts through, some leafy hop and associated bitterness in the works. Long finish, plenty of warmth. A winter warmer for sure.
