EHouse (170) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Pours a deep ebony with a finger of java head. Aromas of sweet aspartame, caramel, figs, rosemary,alcohol, and a hint of thyme. Big mother of a body that is syrupy sweet, with flavors of black licorice, rosemary, black pepper, and caramelized honey. This is a fantastic food beer but on its own it severely surpasses a sipping beer. It’s a bit thick, syrupy, sweet, and the alcohol keeps your tongue tingly. However, pour this into some sugar and caramelized onions or pair it with some intense smoked meat (lamb!) or a seriously sharp aged gouda or blue cheese.

Vignale (2493) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2015
Flaska från Carftbeer/Galatea. Stor söt och viss likhet med quadrupeln som säkert är basen. Bretten märks inte mycket men kryddorna och framför allt rosmarinen är tydlig jämte vad som känns som halva kryddhyllan i salig blandning vilket blir aningen för mycket. Men det är gott till ost och LA har en väldigt hög lägsta nivå.

750 mL bottle poured and split. Cork exploded off this one. Pours a muddy brown color with a fast fading fizz head. Soft spice aroma. Raisin, plum, light vanilla and a good spice flavor finish. Unique, and very tasty. Slight belgian yeast finish as well. Nice.

solidfunk (5173) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Very full bodied. Lots of raisin and plum. Pours dark brown with good head and lacing. Honey is nice but this would be better without the rosemary infusion. Bottle.

rosenbergh (8428) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 26, 2015
Draught at the Lost Abbey, San Marcos, CA. Dark reddish brown colour with a small tan head. Spices, yeast, dark fruits, malt and sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is toasted malt, sugary sweetness, dark fruits, a hint of coffee and some bitterness. Complex and tasty. A bit too sweet but otherwise excellent brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
