mateuszk (231) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 1, 2013
Little hazy, red/brown colour liquid, small head which leaves nice lacing on the glass. Th aroma was very disappoiting, small hints of fruits and caramel. In taste very sweet, dark fruits, caramel and malt. Medium carbonation, medium body. I was very disappointed with this beer.

iep (230) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 23, 2007
Dark brown with red hues and a dense head. Somewhat sweet, very spicy, malty, with toffee and caramel, a bit peaty, slightly hoppy & somewhat smoked, dry, yeasty aroma. Very balanced taste. Leans to the dry side. Lots of spice (cinnamon/pepper), raisins, butterscotch, cookiedough and vanilla. Great long lasting finish, very nice smooth smoky malt & vanilla. Low/medium carbonation, solid mouthfeel - very thick and substantial. Very good.

nickchalk (229) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2004
Pours a cloud reddish brown, a nice big off-white head. The aroma is sweet, spices. Malty flavour with caramel notes, recedes to a finish of grassy, snow-pea hops. Lively carbonation, yet smooth and full bodied. Good beer. Bottle.

cardofab (229) - Teramo- ITALY, ITALY - JUN 9, 2010
Color mogano schiuma bianca alta e persistente, al naso è complessa con note di malto, erbe, lieviti, formaggio. Al palato all’impatto rimane un pò ruvida ma intrigante, dolce ma non troppo; sa di malto, alcol, pane, noci, erbe. Non è il mio stile preferito ma rimane una birra molto interessante.

VALIS (228) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Typical pleasant Belgian dark ale scent -- plums, dates, malt. Taste is both sweet and sour, but not strong in either. Low carbonation, nice chewy mouthfeel. A pleasure.

Bailz316 (228) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - APR 6, 2006
Dark brown with frothy head. Aroma is of fruit and some toffee. Malty and sweet. Very nice brew.

Harsebrau (227) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JAN 23, 2008
Chewy caramel color with a white, quickly fading head. Sweet, floral aroma. Sweet at the start, moving to warm with a slight alcohol flavor at the mid. Full flavored. Spice, cloves, and simple sugar.

tania_nexust (227) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2014
Small (330ml) bottle from Kris Wines. Aroma has a bit of spice; flavour was a little light thought. Have enjoyed this beer more in the past, so I think the larger bottle and draught versions perhaps work better than the little bottle format.

sleestak (226) - Williamston, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2009
Seven-fiddy ml. Pours walnut brown with a big sudsy head. Sweet malts dominate the aroma, but spices - cinnamon and nutmeg, especially - poke through. Initially burnt sugar-sweet and figgy, but finishes dry and peaty. Lingering EtOH. Mouthfeel is delightfully fizzy. A little of this goes quite a long ways, but tasty in moderation.
