mcberko (14059) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2011
On tap at Bottleworks, pours a dark amber brown with a small tan head. Aroma of candied fruits, caramel, yeast, light molasses and sweet roasted malt. Flavour of candied sugar, dried dark fruits, caramel and Belgian yeast. Sort of like a light Belgian barley wine. Very enjoyable.

bhensonb (13984) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 29, 2006
Alcohol interferes with aroma -meaning, I guess, that I don’t detect anything strongly. Dark ruby brown color. Flavor is malt, accompanied by unassignable fruit. A bit sweet, but that’s expected. The malt overpowers the hops at the finish. Very drinkable, but perhaps a bit of citrus would balance things.

Benzai (13641) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2011
Dark brown colored beer. Carbo and body decent, taste as well. Smell is ok but could have been better.

FatPhil (13606) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 3, 2011
750ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
6 Gentle aroma, slight roast maltiness, a touch of apple.
4 Rich reddy brown, fizzy head settles to a ring and small patch in the middle, supported by a nucleation site in the stem.
6 Sweet apply almonds in the retronasals, some cherry too. Dry and papery marzipan/almond taste in the mouth. Quite a waft of alcohol too.
3 Crisp palate, lively carbonation. Finish a little fruity, but more herby and bitingly bitter. Tingle lasts quite a long time, but the long finish is like dry old stale hops.
12 Doesn’t cover the alcohol as well as many, but that’s because it’s not so laced with sugars as others.
