TheEpeeist (3399) - 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.

Crit (3393) - 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

Grzesiek79 (3303) - 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.

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
