hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - DEC 23, 2008
2007 bottle.

reddish amber hued chocolatey brown pour with lots of junk swimming around in it. it*s crowned by a creamy frothy tan head. lots of candi sugar and orange jump out of the aroma. that*s followed by a touch of spiciness, dark fruit, grass, earth and dirty thyme notes. loads of dark sugar richness on the palate but it is not overly sweet. a pleasant bitterness throughout keeps it very enjoyable... flavors of candied orange peel, nutty chocolate, rich malt and medjoul dates come forward before a spicy warm alcoholic finish. the thyme is much more noticeable mid palate and in the aftertaste than in the aroma. it*s certainly full bodied and very rich yet it still maintains drinkability.

there*s a fundamental comfort with the thyme...? 8/4/8/4/15/3.9

Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - DEC 20, 2008
75 cl bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a nice foamy head leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma is spicey, yeasty, a bit of sugar, toffee and dried fruits. Flavour is sweet malt with notes of toffee and that typical belgian yeast. Spices, some warming alcohol. Medium to fullbodied, high carbonation. It is quite drinkable even though the alcohol is noticable. It probably needs a year to reach its full capacity.

75cl bottle from Sheps Deli, Tampa, FL. Pours a dark caramel brown with a one finger tan foamy head that settles quickly but laces the glass. Aroma is rich and malty with notes of ripe dark fruit, dark candy sugar, caramel, toffee, raisins, slight hint of dark chocolate. Flavor is a burst of flavors from caramel and toffee to sweet malt, spice, and molasses. A complex beer. Some notes of phenol, dark ripe fruit, sugar plums and candy sugar are present as well. Generally medium to full body with a sweet and malty finish.

Meatmallet (126) - Salem, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Deep reddish brown with a huge tan head that left a thick ring of lace up and down the glass.Smells very light on the nose. Rasins and dates with a light alcohol smell.Thick and slick in the mouth with a great alcohol at the end. Spice and yeast with dark fruit flavors give it a complex flavor.High carbonation and a great alcohol burn make this a great beer for the style.
