Vaiz (3617) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle at Dean’s Winter Shelter Tasting @ ABCBeers. Black to brown pour. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel malts, brown sugar and licorice. Flavor is bitter, roasty and licorice. Slightly thin body and a bit off balance, but still well drinkable.

Palme (3606) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2013
0.66l bottle @ Haantverkerstuene. This is a deep dark black one, struggling to get a head on this one and the one I get is light bubbly and off-white. Quite nice aroma. Lots of chocolate and vanilla. Some cocoa and wood as well. Light roasted with traces of something slightly herbal. Yheah, a really nice aroma. It’s just about average on the carbonation and thick oily on the mouthfeel. Really good Flavor, loaded with chocolate - the sweet kind, mint and again some cocoa. It’s a warming one this. Slightly burning he down throat in a gentle way. Hints of birch , cold coffee and roasted malts. Quite a smooth one this. Definitely the last for the day. 01.03.2013

Crit (3437) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 29, 2012
A tasty offering that would have rated considerably higher if it did look so poor. Big chunks in the pour, on the cap, and in bottle neck. Black, tan head that fades immediately. Roasty brown sugar nose. Rich roasted profile with wood overtones and medium alcohol heat

TheEpeeist (3428) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2011
660 ml bottle. Dark brown with a fluffy tan cap. Nose is vanilla, dates, rum raisin and mild coffee. Milky medium body with a faint tang but mostly flat. Unlike the rich and malty aroma, the taste is oddly devoid of sweetness. Baker’s chocolate, ash and grass. Finishes earthy with raw potato and licorice. Has a rustic appeal but overall kind of gritty.

On bottle at Håndverkerstuene. Black color, some foam. Aromas of coffee, licorice, lots of dried fruit & malt. Quite noticeable yeast influence.medium/full body & high complexity. Immediate sweetness, some bitterness. Enjoyable, but to sweet for my taste

Grzesiek79 (3342) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 3, 2014
Butelka 0,66 l. Stare Ale o pelnym smaku, tresciwe, swiateczne belgijskie ale mi sie tu nasuwa bo smak bardzo podobny. Troche lukrecji, przypraw, i pieczonych jablek. Wyraznie slodkawe ale o wytrawnym i lekko palonym finiszu zarazem. Kolor czarny gesty wiec nieprzezroczysty, Piana niewielka w zasadzie maciupenka brazowawa. Wyraznie uderza do glowy to piwo w starym angielskim stylu.
