bottle shared at 5000 tasting - yeasty nose, bready, spicey grain notes, alcohol warmth. Smooth yeastiness, sweet bubblegum candy. Pretty tasty, actually.

375ml bottle, thanks lusikka

Pours dark brown with a small white head. Aroma is sweet, with hints of raisin, exotic fruits and alcohol. Taste is caramely sweet with notes of toffee, exotic fruits and malts. Finish is sweet, smooth and carbonated. Full bodied. Quite good, but I’m not a fan of these kind of overly sweet dessert beers.

lusikka (7621) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2011
375 ml bottle from Kihoskh, Copenhagen.
Pours a dark brown colour with a white frothy head. Aroma of strong licorice and dark chocolate. Flavour of caramel malts, licorice, dark chocolate, hops and lovely sweet toffee. Medium/full bodied with a sticky mouthfeel and a sweet raisiny toffee finish. Very tasty without too much sweetness.

Koelschtrinker (14073) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 11, 2011
Malziger, stark alkoholischer Antrunk mit leichten Spuren einer Holzfasslagerung. Wenig gewürzig, das Malz wird nun stärker, der Alkohol bleibt erkennbar, wirktim hinteren Teil aber besser integriert und stört daher nicht mehr. Nett, nicht mehr. /9/10/9/11/9

Pours dark brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of prunes, raisin, brown sugar, alcohol and yeast. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long warm sweet finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

MrChopin (3810) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 23, 2011
hazy dark red-brown, thin lasting white ring. Large oxidized sugars, burnt caramel, sweet and unsatisfying.

GT2 (9410) - Oceanside, California, USA - APR 18, 2011
375mL thanks to CaptainCougar. A long time want list item if only for the crazy presentation of the bottle. The pour is a hazy deep maroon/mahogany with a larger yellow head. Webby lace remains. Aroma is rum raisin, cinnamon, cookie, sweet maple, alcohol. Taste is ashy, bitter, lemon, sweet syrup. Watery palate. Not sure the point of this one.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - APR 17, 2011
Big sweet and boozy nose with lots of toffee and dark fruit. The taste is very sweet, moderately bitter, lots of toffee, lots of raisins, lots of astringent crystal malt. Bleh.

375ml bottle, gold foil bag: Pours a clear deep copper amber with a spotty-lacing beige head. Has a lightly sweet toasty biscuity dark caramel malty nose with some light fruity esters. Starts with a finely-dissolved carbonation and lightly sweet caramel maltiness with some oxidation and light fruits before a drier biscuity finish with some lingering peppery warmth. A pretty decent Belgian strong ale, but could hide its alcohol a little better.
