DocHop (278) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 9, 2008
Pours a dark rusty copper with a huge tan head. High carbonation and a great aroma of Belgian yeast, light cocoa and oak, along with some dark fruits and spices. Almost chocolaty sweetness at first that turns into an overripe fruit flavor ending with a slightly hoppy, dry finish. I think the flavor is a little dominated by the finish but overall it’s a very full bodied beer with a lot of good flavor. No taste of the 10% ABV.

stankenk (130) - Maplewood, Minnesota, USA - DEC 6, 2008
2007 Edition. Pours dark brown with a thick off white head. Has a nose of yeast, fruit notes, and a touch of chocolate. Comes across the palate a tad on the overly carbonated side. Flavors of plums, yeast, and light spices, while the alcohol stays in the background. It has a mild finish, that doesnt linger too long. Overall a decent brew, quite balanced for a winter warmer I tend to think spicier.

AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - DEC 6, 2008
Pours deep brown with some red on the highlights and a whisp of a tan head that lingers. The nose is spice, yeast, caramel, dried fruit and molasses, as is the flavor. Smooth on the palate and clean finish.

heemer77 (5290) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 5, 2008
Hard to believe I had not tried this one before. From a 2007 bottle sampled in late 2008. The body was dark coppery brown with a light yellowish khaki head. The smell is herbal with some bread and wood. The taste has some herbal thyme and is dry. There is also some wood and orange peels. I was not a fan of this really dry number.

Vas19 (313) - Maryland, USA - DEC 4, 2008
2007 edition. Pours dark brown with a thick off-white head. Aroma of bread, figs, and a touch of wine. Flavor is malty with a few vinous notes and finishes with a bunch of spice. A good beer overall, but the flavors arent quite as bold as I was hoping.

nbutler11 (1267) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2008
Pours a light plum color from the bomber with a creamy off-white head and plenty of lacing. Loaded with chewey malts, pie spices, raisin, and a fair amount of alcohol. A great winter warmer.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2008
Pours a cloudy brown with a nice head. Aroma yeasty with fruity esters, chocolate and raw beef - some sort of a oily grain, bran or flax? Tastes of black forest cake, complete with cherries chocolate, and again that bran flavour. Carb & body ok/unremarkable. A bit cloudy, but overall quite enjoyable. Thanks to G for the taste!

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 1, 2008
Deep red-brown color pour with a lasting and lacy tan head. Big aroma of citrus, yeast, dark fruit, candy and some spice. Nice fruity flavor, with a malty and spicy finish. Smooth and creamy on the palate. Very nice!
