dhatton (215) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Deep mahogany body with auburn highlights. Frothy layer of off-white foam that subsides into a halo of bubbles with noticeable lacing. Rich, fruity aroma, combined with yeast and spiciness; cloves and nutmeg. Taste is of raisins, plums, mild chocolate, malt, and some black licorice on the finish. Creamy texture, alcohol masked well by the high level of carbonation. Delightful beer overall, very drinkable even considering the high alcohol content.

Cannot believe it is not brewed in an abbey! True abbey style Quad (on low alcohol side (9%). Aroma chocolate, caramel no alcohol. Small ephemeral head. Very light body for alcohol. Well balance bitterness-residual sugar. Nice rum palate. Very good!

Dark brown color with beige head. Aroma of ripe fruit. Flavor is sweet and warming. Tastes just slightly better than bio variant in my opinion.

Moebbels (514) - FINLAND - JAN 10, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy, very dark amber body with a small, off-white head. The nsoe has heavy notes of prunes, sherry and molasses. The taste is very sweet with a dry finish that leaves traces of the sweetness on the palate. Carbonation is creamy and fairly heavy and the palate feels quite rich. A nice beer but very sweet or the style.

Kauge (843) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 4, 2015
33 cl bottle from Wine of Galilee in Tallinn (€ 2.40). BB 11.08.2016. Dark brown colour with a hue of mahogany, seems clear; head is very big, tan, retention good and lacing very good. A damn fine looking beer. Nose is sweet and spicy: caramel, prunes, figs and dates, hint of alcohol, and later on a sour black bread note. Taste is similarily sweet with caramel most apparent, and raisins soaked in liqueur - the alcohol is not hidden in this one. Some pretty harsh bitterness follows, accentuated by the alcohol. Overall it has a pleasant, almost chocolaty sweetness, and a bit of bready sourness. The finish is dry and bitter, also grainy. Medium body and crisp carbonation; not a very heavy syrupy sticky texture, quite soft on the palate, but with a small graininess. Nice!

thb (765) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 3, 2015
Dark amber/brown with slight haze and finger width of bubbles. Aroma is boozy, christmas pudding. Raisins, orange marmalade. Roast. Have a sip and you get similar christmas pudding aromas, plus dates, molasses. There’s a brightness to it despite the darkness and alcohol. Chewiness balanced by sparkling carbonation, hidden alcohol. There’s a lot to like here.
