Cool_Bond (2003) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - JAN 17, 2013
I’m not overly impressed with this beer. The scent is thin and weak. Hardly so you know something. The taste is better me, but just okay. The aftertaste is left for a little while but not for long. That said, I was not impressed with this beer. I have a Vintage 2011 in stock, which I hope is better.

Hopfemandli (107) - Zug, SWITZERLAND - JAN 15, 2013
On tap @Erzbierschof -- almost black with small creamy beige head. Aroma is dark chocolate, dark fruit, roasty notes. Taste is similar, with velvety sweetness, easy to drink. Some weird aspects.

jgentgesdo (682) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Pours opaque dark brown with a thin brown head. Nose is chocolate, coffee, toasted pecans, dates, cloves, charcoal in the end. Very sweet, very alcohol forward. Medium heavy body. Lingering alcohol and charcoal aftertaste. Very good.

LoFi (1678) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle. Very dark brown with a light brown head leaving lacing. Aroma: roasted, fruity, a bit musty, some spices. Taste: malty, dried fruits, yeast, light spices, sweet, some milk chocolate, burnt brown sugar. Full bodied, medium high carbonation. From memory, I would say this year was my least favourite so far.

Thisis12ptfont (992) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Funky aroma of yeast, mustard and apricots. Deep crimson/magenta color with a large tan foam. Thick texture with flavors of molasses, candied caramel, sugared fruits and belgian candi sugar. Some toasted toffee, ginger, cinnamon and cocoa is present on the finish. Overall, this is a very interesting take on a Belgian strong. Very sweet and sugary with very well masked alcohol.

TheCametron (2112) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 8, 2013
Bottle on Christmas day. Pours Black with a beige head. Hearty aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and booze. The flavour is classic Belgian yeast with a nice malty sweetness and a little bit of background spice. Berries and prunes. Very smooth considering the alcohol content. I found this beer to be elegant and probably the best of the day.

KyotoLefty (7553) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 6, 2013
750 ml Bottle from Yamaichi. Chocolatey, spicy nose, licorice, light coffee, berries, apple, alcohol fumes. Interesting and strange. Black with a low, thick, bubbly tan  head. Rich, malty, sweet. Chocolate, coffee, cream, licorice, spices, apple pie, blackberry jam. Rich and tasty, dessert-like. Much like a Belgian Imperial stout. Over the top and very tasty, though very sweet and lots of spice.
