Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - OCT 29, 2009
Very flavourful, strongm, and a bit spicey, this is also highly drinkable and smoothly balanced. It’s dark red-brown with a big tan head that shrinks slowly to a thin, frothy top. It leaves some foamy lace. The aroma, very nice, is dried and fermented figs, brown bread, whole wheat, raisins and port. Taste is port, sweet-sour plums, fermented fruit, strawberry and cherry jam, hints of licorice and cola, sweet toastiness. Unfortuinately, it falls a little flat in character after an initially incredible start, but it still stays good.

dynamiteninja (1490) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle. Thin off white head with good retention. Fizzy dark reddish amber body. Nose is oak, banana, malt, iron, red fruit. Bittersweet, with a tangy and sour finish. Pretty good.

HammerTroll (440) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 25, 2014
Cloudy dark brow color, small tan head. Brown sugar, alcohol and caramel. In one taste: alcoholic caramelized sugar. Medium to heavy sweetness. Medium body, soft carbonation. Not impressed.

Aangezien het een donker bier is, had er iets meer smaak aan mogen zijn, teleurstellend

Excelente! Cor escura forte, linda espuma consistente que se mantém. Aroma tostado bem balanceado, assim como o sabor. Notas de café e chocolate, sem ser doce. Delícia.

Caytinator (939) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 4, 2014
On tap, first time! This beer overall is way better than I remembered from tasting it 5-6 years ago. Lots of rich malty flavors, palate is pretty warm and inviting. Overall a very well-done beer.

Bottle at Sin & Redemption. Pours a muddy brown with a thin head leaving behind light lacing. Aromas are of raisin bread soaked in booze. Tastes of raisin bread, toffee, and some definite booziness.

On tap at wine 101. Nice white lace easy drinking brown. Belgium taste is upfront (with almost a bubble gum flavor) easy drinking and enjoyable.
