JulienHuxley (5194) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2016
Sample on tap at the brewpub. Hazy amber copper pour with gold head. Aroma is nutty, dried fruit, earthy notes, light booze. Taste is sweet, toasty, quite boozy. Palate is med full bodied with good carb. Nothing extraordinary but a pretty solid quad.

b3shine (7397) - Indiana, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Draft to taster at the brewpub (2016 vintage). This batch is 10.8% with 25 IBUs. Looks good; a hazy purplish brown with off-white lacing. Smells solid; a nice balance of Belgian yeast, raisin, and plum. Tastes like it smells, but less balanced. Very raisin-forward. Mouthfeel is medium full-bodied. Solid, but smells better than it tastes.

VsXsV (3643) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2016
Draught at Marin Brewing Company. Almost opaque deep brown liquid with small light tan head. Aroma of dried fruit, raw sugar, raisins, toffee and warming alcohol. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of dried fruit, raisins, booze and toffee. Full bodied with medium carbonation. Ok.

Homer321 (3551) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JAN 29, 2016
Draft at source. Nose is full of dark fruit, dried figs. Taste is similar, moderately sweet, light phenolic a compliment the beer. I really like this one.

mR_fr0g (7237) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2016
Draft at the Marin brewing company larkspur. Murky chestnut brown coloured pour with a medium beige head. Aroma is subdued, sweet malts and dried fruits. Flavour is composed of hot alcohol, solvent, dried fruits, tart plum, vanilla. Bit of a hot mess. Palate is medium sweet, solvent, highish carbonation. Not a fan.

brokensail (14530) - San Leandro, California, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Mahogany pour with a big khaki head. Lots of banana, plum, and raisin. Sweet brown sugar, caramel, and toffee. A bit of toffee, some alcohol, and soft spice and yeast. The flavor is extremely smooth. Great caramel, brown sugar, and dark fruit. Banana, raisin, plum, and hints of pear. There’s a nice soft spice character, some yeast, and a creamy mouthfeel.

joeneugs (4872) - Livermore, California, USA - JUN 6, 2012
On draft at Beer Revolution. It pours a very dark ruby red color with a thick khaki head that lasts forever. The aroma is full of ripe, dark fruit. Plum, fig, pear, apple abound with light notes of banana. The flavor is very smooth and fruity with some mild yeast derived earthiness and spice. It has an herbal hop finish. No hint of the alcohol, as this goes down way too easy. Balanced and very nice.

Ungstrup (32172) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2010
Draft. An unclear chestnut colored beer with a thin orangey head. The aroma has notes of brettanomyces, malt, caramel, and lemon. The flavor is very sweet - a bit too sweet for my liking with notes of malt and caramel, leading to a sligtly tart finish.

DuffMan (8628) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 28, 2009
Draught. Pours a murky amber brown with golden highlights and a dense vanilla coloured head that leaves clingy lace. Very sweet aroma of stewed fruits and caramel malt with yeasty undertones. Heavy, sticky-sweet palate of caramel malt, dates, and cooked apples. Warming finish with very low bitterness. Even as a sipper this got to be a bit much.
