Westmeister (2051) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 3, 2011
On tap @ Local Republic (L’ville, GA). Pours deep reddish/brown/black with tan head and good lacing. Chocolate, spices, hint of coffee, roasted malts, dark fruit on the nose. Complex taste off dark fruit and coffee dominate for me, but chocolate and some spice with a known booziness. Very nice.

Erasmus_ro (1820) - Alabama, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Bottle. Pours black with a dark brownish tinge against the light and a large, thick, latte head. Aroma is fairly sweet with liquorice, coffee, alcohol, tones of christmassy spices. Taste is rather sweet though, again with coffee and spices and roastedness as well as alcohol. Palate is medium, could be fuller. Rather disappointing.

ExpendableHero (774) - Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2011
This beer rocks. Dark brown, with some reddish hues. Strong aromas of spices, and dark chocolate. Tastes of dark fruit, toffee/caramel, dark chocolate, some coffee, and lots of malt. A bit thick, with some warming booze thrown in. Sweet, chocolaty finish. This stuff is great, words do not do it justice. I strongly recommend this to anyone.
