AshtonMcCobb (2924) - Edinburgh, - DEC 2, 2012
75cl bottle thanks to onkelgobber. Pours opaque black with a slim but attractive head. The nose has nuts and praline. The taste has more hazelnuts, toffee, some spice, ginger cake. The palate is full bodied, with a lovely long texture that leans into the finish. Overall, absolutely gorgeous.

Alengrin (2436) - BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2014
Complex ’massive ale’ in Belgian style with a long list of ingredients including four hop varieties, wheat flakes and candi syrup. Off-white, dense head, very dark burgundy colour, hazy. Strong aroma of dried spices and caramel with hints of orange peel, cloves, bayleaf, nutmeg, caramel, passion fruit, port wine, pear and hay. Dry and tingling spiciness in the onset (dried citrus peel), deep caramelly and chocolatey maltiness, candied fruits, yeast bitterness especially in the end, finishing with leafy hops and warming, sherry-like alcohol. Must be a great provisional beer with amazing ageing potential.

VastActiv (3075) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle from local Alko. Originally rated 13122011. Colour is dark brown with small head. Aromas and flavours: Belgian yeast, dark fruits, spices and malts.

onceblind (4541) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Aged 2 years. Heavy dark brown pour, no real head to speak of. Nose is a bit restrained but contains some chewy plum and a touch of light herbal Christmas spices. Flavor is dark and plummy, with a bright cheesy malty middle with a wee herbal tone throughout. Not necessarily plummy, just a bit sweet and fruity-malty. A bit booze forward without the necessary depth.

GT2 (8741) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Tap at Beachwood long beach. Clear inky red pour with mocha foam. Nose is somewhat medicinal, baked cherry, prunes, cinnamon dark bread. Taste is bitter, decently roasty, some cocoa, also some dark cherry and Pumpernickel bread. Dry, bitter cocoa finish.

rdixon77 (829) - Georgia, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Super old review- fuzzy on details. Just remember incredible balance of Xmas spice, sweetness, malt, and dark fruit. Perfect beer for Xmas. Nice warmth without any boozy burn.

I have tasted this about two years ago, just mentioned I’ve forgot to rate it. Don’t remember exact notes anymore, just remember the feeling that it was wonderful beer.

deyholla (6989) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Bottle thanks to Jan! Pours a hazy deep brown with a brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has sweet dark grains, molasses and toffee with a hint of light spice. Flavor is similar with toffee and sweet dark grains throughout with hints of spice and Belgian candied sugar.
