Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2007
Bottled. Very dark brown with a thick but collapsing brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of yeast, chocolate, and spices. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of chocolate, alcohol, malt, spices, and yeast, the spices include cinnamon and coriander. The alcohol tickles the tongue, the tickling lasts for a long time after swallowing.

Ughsmash (7124) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2007
Bottled. Poured a clear, very deep brown with a nice initial cap of beige head. Aroma was of deeply-toasted wood and chocolate on the first impression with some herbal and vinous notes lagging behind. Flavor had a toasted marshmallow and caramel fore that gave rise to a rather empty middle... light smoky caramel and warm booze on the back-end. Syrupy front and back with an empty middle.. not very good transitions there.. warm through the finish. I was expecting more.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2007
A Mes rate: Bottle at Weekend of S.F. This was one of our feebies at the end of the evening. Thanks Tim. Actually it was more like morning. As a result (especially as Patrick had been plying us with drinks AAAAALLLLL day, erm... cheers mate!) I was worse for wear. My notes say nothing more than: "Sugar, spice, excellent." And that it was. Love the warped label too.

oberabcbbsok (687) - Hoboken, BELGIUM - MAY 19, 2007
Bottle and draft. A very nice strong ale. Strength is 12.2 instead of 12. Rather sweet but the alcohol tast is there only in the aftertaste. A very good beer

bleeng (1513) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - MAY 11, 2007
Bottle at Oud Vlaenderen in Poperinge. Almost opaque, no head. Flat, winey, sweet, a bit cloying. Medium body and reminds me of an American barleywine. A good winter brew.

Bottle. Amber brown color with a average frothy fair lacing beige head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty and yeasty, sweet, licorice, sugar, fruit, alcohol.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 22, 2007
Dark brown colored, slight red hints. Big beige head. Spices, licorice, berries, strong sweetness in aroma with obvious alcohol. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is dominated by sweetness: grains, berries, sweet raisins, mild spices and licorice also there. Too sweet for my taste, alcohol comes up strongly in aftertaste.

sparkly pleasent sensation slightly overwhelms the flavors which, while present, are a bit hidden. not dissapointing, not amazing.

TheEpeeist (3328) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2007
Malheur tasting at the Monk’s Café in Philly. Poured from a 250 ml bottle. Clear burgundy brown with a tan head. Vinous nose with toffee and plums. Very much like an Abt 12 but without the creaminess. Yeasty raisins, chocolate, cloves and some caramel with boozy drying.
