75cl bottle shared with friend. Big dark fruity aroma with yeasty notes, sweet malts, dried plums and some spice. Complex. Flavour is sweet malty, yeast, dark fruits and brett! It really well balanced and the flavours come together very nicely.

Perfect ten for Ten Commandments. All kinds of delicious aromas perking through, from funk to cinnamon to lemon peal to Belgian candy sugar. Flavor is equally as complex. To much to list ,you will not be disappointed in this purchase.

Draft at the brewery. Pours dark brown with a thick, fizzy tan head. Tastes like smooth booze, rich, nutty, dry roasted malt, light ash, sweet cinnamon, and dried dark fruits. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like rich cinnamon, sweet dark fruits, light ash, roasted malt, light booze.

Tap at brewery. Pours dark brown with tan head. Aroma is oak, fig, dates, spicy yeast esters, bready malts, and faint raisins. Flavor is rich malt base, tons of dark fruit esters, crazy yeast esters, and a dry, oak finish. Medium/full body and medium carbonation.

Bottle 750 ml. Pours a darkest mahogany/brown color, with frothy, tan head foam that diminished slowly. The nose started with a hint of candy cane mintiness that could come from the rosemary influence, then proceeded with sweetness, and dark fruit as raisin & plum. Medium to full bodied, with a high carbonation. The taste has dark fruit flavor, added some tartness & alcohol warmth. Aftertaste is liquirish and mintiness, lingers! A quad with a lot of different tastes, maybe to much... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TET (1993) - FINLAND - FEB 16, 2015
12% abv, 75 cl bottle. A very dark brown beer with a big and light brown head. Aroma is just great, dried fruits, sweet berries, flowers, plums, also unique spicyness. Even the aroma is dark it’s still fresh. Taste has dark fruits, great sweet raspberries, some port wine. Taste is also dominated by strong spicyness, at least ginger without burning, also rosemary. Th bitterness is drying the end together with strong spices. Hint of alcohol. The great freshness is there all the time. Almost full bodied, strong carbonation, quite smooth. The great beer with a unique and marvellous spicyness, the glass is empty too soon. Spicy.

Bottle shared with Meilby. Thanks! Poured a dark brown with solid head. Nose has cherries (very like raisins/almonds in glühwein mixture), dark chocolate, slight coffee. Feels like a strong drink. Tasted wonderfully smooth and left the palate refresh as after a christmas glühwein :-). Good stuff. This one’d likely go higher if re-rated. I prefer more coffee in the darkest and strongest beers I usually go for; but this is a different style. Very enjoyable.

Cork and cage bottle. 2008 vintage. Wow, this one’s at least 6 years old! Minimal pop from the cork. Uh-oh, could that signify an oxidized beer? Pours dark brown with amber hues and NO head. This is troubling, however, the nose tells an incredible story. Massively rich and complex dark fruits and spices. Layers of booze soaked raisins and dates, honey, rosemary, ginger, and allspice. Medium sweet attack. Med-full body, thick texture, minimal carbonation, and a bitter tannic finish. Almost port-like at this stage. Not getting the Brett, but this is still a great beer. Probably 2-3 years past it’s prime.

dhatton (137) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Pours dark brown body with some reddish hues. Fluffy tan head with decent staying power. Audible crackling of carbonation throughout. Yeasty aroma with spice, figs, and raisins. There’s an underlying booziness. Sweet taste of caramel and more dark fruits. Earthy, herbal finish with a prickly mouthfeel. Many complexities folded into this delightful beer, albeit, very well balanced.
