Bottle that I picked up at Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgium, consumed 01.05.10 Can’t understand how I missed adding this rating, but miss it I did. Pours murky brown with a dense fluffy off-white lasting head. Soft in the mouth with some candy sugar, there is a rich vein of hops that hit and spice also. Very easy drinking beer and doesn’t seem like a 10.9% beer at all, good maltiness and clear distinct flavours coming through. Nice beer. A7 A3 T8 P4 Ov15 3.7

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2016 Bouteille achetée chez Erzbierschof en 2011, gardée dans ma cave - De couleur noire sans mousse - Au nez des aromes de chocolat, de malt torréfié, de madère, légèrement soja, grain, beaucoup de chocolat, cacao, on dirait un chocolat chaud fait maison - En bouche une bière platte mais incroyable, chocolat, cacao, madère, légèrement fruit confit, inexplicable - Corp moyen, pas d?amertume, pas de carbonation, légèrement aqueuse, final chocolat - une incroyable expérience, dommage du peux de gaz, mais une bière bien veillie, limite de consomation

Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen, thanks to Anders Svensson. Opaque black beer with a nice beige head. Malty caramel aroma, raisins, figs, dades, some bread. Malty fruity flavor, grapes, caramel, banana, figs, raisins, plums, some warming alcohol. Aged with dignity.

Careful ageing but still not richer but poorer. Still above average mouthfeel but cocoa and sweetness dominates and not so drinkable.

750 ml bottle. BB 06/10/15. Bought some years ago... Dark brown colour with almost no head. Malt, sweetness, manure and alcohol in the aroma. The flavour is spices, sweet malt and alcohol. Totally flat. Not very nice. This hasn't been aging so well. Compared to 2010 vintage this bad... The flatness makes this unpleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

another nice year for this spicy decadent treat. As with most years, its warming without being hot and the right mix of yeasty and roasted malts. Very good.

Bottle at No5. Hazy brown with sediments. Aroma heavy malty (dark fruits). Flavor heavy sweet, a bit yearthy notes. Almost full body. Spices and cocoa has disappeared.

Rated in 2010 (Backlog) - Brown in color with a large beige head. Aroma is of pine, wood, roasted malts, and chocolate. Taste is of roasted malts and pine.

Probably one of my favorite beers of all time. Complex flavours but still a very balanced beer and extremely good beer.
