Goblincat (382) - Westland, Michigan, USA - SEP 15, 2005
Very thick, fluffy, long lasting head topping a brownish red ale. Plums, grapes, and sugars greet the nose. The taste is warming, with a spice and fruit blend, finishing with a sugary carbonation.

CapFlu (4548) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2005
(750ml bottle) The neck foamed-over for a good 2 minutes after the cap finally was cracked. A pleasant aroma of marshmellow and bourbon filled the air. The flavours of strong roasted malt, caramel, marshmellow and cask bourbon roll nicely on the tongue. Very potent and formal flavours for a straight-forward taste. Very warming ans sweet. Very good.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2005
Bottle. It is quite N’Ice i have to say. Some nice touches of caramel and chocolate, with hints of brown sugar. Belgian yeasty bitterness in the finish, with a soft carbonation, very pleasant and quite drinkable for its strength.

Cornfield (5497) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 27, 2005
Vintage 2004: A dark nutty brown body with glimmering ruby highlights capped by a thick, creamy tan head make this one good looking ale. The aroma is quite spicy, a rich caramel & toffee malt with orange zest, dark berries, and alcohol. Smooth but hot in the mouth, the flavor intensifies the malts, blends it tightly to the alcohol and fruits, and allows the spices to roam freely. The finish is sweet and hot. I like.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - AUG 19, 2005
Vertical, with a 2002, 2003 and 2004 and I definately perferred te 2004, but I also hate oxidation. Dark ruby color. Very subtle aromatically, comparing multiple samples. Rich toffee and spice with a pretty overwhelming bitter and acidic flavor, along with an orange tone, which may come from spices. Musty yeast as well. Never really been to fond of it.

Tejas (872) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 12, 2005
Pours brown with a thick lasting light tan head. Smells great. Lots of sweet chocolatey malt in the nose. A little fruity too. Sort of a dry bitter palate. Finishes with some alcohol flavor. A good dark Belgian Ale that would probably be better if the alcohol were hidden better. As it is, the alcohol masks some of the flavors; nevertheless, it’s still a quality ale.

Quyntarious (33) - Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2005
Flowery, earth odor, thyme,, pours a cloudy brown with a nice tan head that whisps to a thin head in a few minutes. Starts off creamy smooth, sweet flavour then a sourness.
