On draft at Brouwer’s. Pours a very dark bronze with a dense Belgian head. Aroma has dark fruits, brown sugar, black cherries and just a bit of citrus. Spices come through more in the flavor, giving it more of the holiday-ale feel. Great palate - not overcarbonated, very smooth. Great.

DuffMan (9593) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 26, 2008
Pours a deep red-orange amber, capped with a thick creamy tan coloured head that leaves incredibly thick lace down the glass. One must fight through the foam to get at the aroma underneath! This beer is big on sweet sugary caramel malt, with cooked apples, orange brandy, yeast, and subtle spices part of the complex picture. The finish is a little boozy and warm, and surprisingly bitter.

Draught at BTAH, into tulip. Pours cloudy brown, somewhere between the colors of dark and milk chocolate, with a full, fluffy, 2 finger off-white head. Some wispy lacing at the top of the glass. Aroma is breaady, yeasty, slight sweet, bit of alcohol. Taste is caramelized brown sugar and a big spicy yeastiness, some roasty bread crust, moving to a full, rich bready, spicy character, with sweet figs in there also. Spicy alcohol makes itself felt also. Finishes with a sweet spiciness - notes of cinnamon, candied figs in the finish. Mouthfeel is soft and lush, softly carbonated, creamy, light but feel. Word class beer, one of my winter favorites.

Crushed with Jakebra. Highly carbonated is light and tickling on the tongue, and I like to be tickled. Lots and lots of dark, sweet fruits in this. A absolute pleasure to drink, and that ABV is marvelous and obvious after a few sips.

Sample @ BBF ’08, Boston. Pours a deep brown with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, dark fruit, and a bit of yeast detectable as well. Flavor is dark fruit and yeast, dissolving into malt and an alcohol burn at the end. The beer was very lively and maintained a great characteristic throughout. Excellent.

RuneStumo (2583) - Haugesund, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2008
27.09.2008, 0,75l Bottle. BB 09.08.2010. The colour is dark brown, maybe a little clody. Aroma is fruit and malt. The beer is a little to lively carbonated. Body is full and the beer is rich. The strong alcohol gives the beer a warm atertaste.

brigg (623) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 10, 2008
(bottle) A light brown, airy head and dark brown body with red highlights. The aroma is full of sweet fruit, nuts, and notes of alcohol. The flavor is very sweet with slight acidity, toffee as well as nuts and some other earthy flavors underlying. The alcohol, though not very strong, is noticeable, particularly so in the after taste as it warms the throat and mouth. Medium to full body is a little sticky and carbonaceous.

Not much in te aroma, just a little spicy. This is a nice Belgian strong. The alcohol is noticeable but not bad. I can’t say that I notice the orange peel or the thyme. Mostly just a solid dark Belgian strong.
