yespr (40811) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2008
Bottle #6: 75 cL bottle. Pours hazy brown with a lacing off-white head. Spiced and malt aroma. Flavour initially sweet but soon turns to a more dry maltyness with a mild herbal and hops note, or could this be the roasted chestnuts? Mild fruity touch too. Slight alcohol touch in the finish.

The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, alcohol, and fruit, as well as light notes of prunes, leading to a dry finish. The mouthfeel is sparkling. Huge thanks to yespr for sharing.

JorisPPattyn (9503) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2007
Medium beige head over black-looking beer with red-amber highlights. Smoked, ashes as from a BBQ-grill, but all the malts seem disappeared. Smoked, tobacco, a pinch of hops and chocolater; lactic acid in the finish. Burning MF - not too much - well-bodied and slick. Extraordinary (not even counting the label) but not really great. The wrapping paper is an absolute hoot - worth an extra point.
