thewolf (11184) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2006
Pours muddy brown with a thin head that dissappears quickly. A masterpiece in smell with tones of cinnamon, anis, oranges and fruity tones from the yeast. It is medium to full-bodied. The tasting only enhances the aromatic pleasures. Stunning!

Christian (11119) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2009

jcwattsrugger (11083) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUL 9, 2007
750ml bottle-thanks to Joe/jwc215 pours a diminishing tan head and brown color with amber tint. Aroma is sweet medium malt-caramel, bready, medium/dark fruit. Taste is first dry hops character, then sweet medium malt-caramel, bready, medium/dark fruit. Occasional. OK effervescence.

bhensonb (11074) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 7, 2007
The aroma is something of a whisky malt, reminiscent of Adelscott. Very dark ripe fruit color with beige head that ringed rapidly. Medium body. Creamy carbonation. Flavor of ripe fruit, including some strawberry. It then moves to gritty malt, coffee, and some light bitter. The alcohol can be sensed. It’s absolutely delicious.

Leighton (10987) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2010
Tap at Rattle n Hum. Pours a semi-clear brown with a large, off-white head. Good fruits in the nose, along with lightly roasted malts, booze and caramel. Sweet flavor, with great toffee, caramel, ripe fruit and scotch. Medium bodied with average carbonation. More sweetness in the finish, along with faint bitter notes. Good stuff.

Pinball (10844) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2009
75cl bottle. quite lively beer that came out by itself as i got the cap off. no big spill though, and pouring made it relax. clear dark amber, smooth but a bit fluffy at first light brown head. malty, nutty, dark fruity, mild spicy aroma.figs, blue berries, cardemom, mild alc aroma. flavor is fruity, moderately boozy, mild to moderatly spicy, flavor is malty, ever so slighlty mild blue berry sourish, mild nutty, well blended. spices could be cardemom. comes off as a very well brewed well rounded brune beer, of the not-so-sour kind.

Koelschtrinker (10669) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Getrunken beim 1. BTO-Treffen und ergänzt durch einen Neutest am 19.10.2008: Sehr prickelndes Bier, der Alkohol ist gschickt hinter Aromen verborgen. Im weiteren Verlauf dezent würzig, dabei im Nachgeschmack noch aromatischer werdend. Ergänzungen 2008: Ds Bier ist leider nicht so komplex wie das La Chouffe, bietet aber trotzdem eien ausreichende Anzahl an Aromen. Die Malzigkeit ist durchlässrig für andere Aromen, so kommt der leichte Hopfen durchaus zum Tragen. Im Abgang stark Malzig-würzig. Test vom 30.12.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,11,10,12,11 - 11,00
