damn. when you’re bent on stoney chron, sunk into leather, head like a bowling ball..This thickness rectifies. Damp nose of must & grain alcohol. Bitter slapped intro, thick kumquat-rind sweetness laying atop. soaked fruits & raisins with bitter violations. Sit on your throne

"2009-brewed w/raisins, honey, and rosemary. not really funky like it seems some past editions were, but pretty complex. the rosemary and raisiny fruit are evident right away, the honey comes out as it warms. overall, an almost too sweet yeasty beer, the rosemary adding some uniqueness and complexity. tasty, full bodied."

TheGB (513) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Pours brown with a huge tan head. Nice aroma I’d malt and raisins. Nice taste and palate. High carbonation gives it quite a bit of acidity

vanelst (153) - AUSTRIA - SEP 11, 2014
bottle. Aroma of honey, rosemary, dried fruits, caramel. Taste is sweet and spicy upfront, moderate bitter hops in the end. Ideal for sipping, gives you that warm alcohol feeling, also very christmassy. Well balanced, complex and tasty. Excellent.

A true strong Belgian, just not specifically to my taste. Hint of floral on the tongue. Pungent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
