judasbeer (431) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 25, 2009
Almost the same appearance as the Mc Chouffe. A little bit deeper in the red saturation and the head is less stable. The aroma is quite peppery at first, and then comes fruity and herbal. Balanced, medium sweet roasted malts along with tons of herbals and spices like thyme and curacao. In the finish the mouthfeel gets more peppery and herbal. Medium to full bodied with lively carbonation and "NIce" warming alcoholic edge. It’s nIce for any occasion, especially for cold winter nights.

Bozo_skeleton (429) - Grenoble, FRANCE - DEC 30, 2013
Ruby, sans carbo ni col. Arome leger fruité et quelque peu épicé. Corps imposant lié a son taux d’alcool, bon equilibre. Agréable.

2004 Bottle. Crisp hoppy spicy yeasty aroma. Dark tawney appearance with full off-white head. Fruitcake, gingerbread flavor with fruity apricot , cherry and orange flavors with pleasant warming alcohol. Lingering spicy finish. Excelent Winter warmer.

bhops (427) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Pours amber brown with nice head. Drank around 60 degrees as recommended. Aroma is candied sugar and citrus. Flavor is nice and spicy without too much heat. Not the right time of year for this but really good. Oh, and smak och doft av malt, humle, torkad frukt, belgisk jäst med toner av brunt socker. Stor sötma, fin beska.

ScottyP (425) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - OCT 1, 2009
Pours a dark cloudy brown with off white head. Aroma of spice, malt, dark fruit, booze. Very complex aroma, can’t completely wrap my head around it. Similar taste, very warming. enjoyed this one.

dexcansino (423) - Andalucía, SPAIN - DEC 8, 2012
Cerveza color marrón oscuro y cristalino. La espuma desaparece rápidamente. Alta graduación que no se percibe en el sabor. Sabor a frutas maduras, castaña y miel de caña. Mejor a medida que se va poniendo a temperatura ambiente.

Trappist1 (420) - Diest, BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2013
From tap @ Brouwerij in Lanaken. Brown, huge off-white head. Nose: spices, alcoholic perfume, malts but a bit unfresh. Taste: spices, alcohol, sweet, only in the finish. Warming beer (winter beer, check), but the higher alcohol% is very well hidden (tricky). This beer can’t impress me, okey to drink.

Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 7, 2005
Fruit and hints of soury dark fermented fruit and malty sweet on the nose... Malty sweet and dark fruit in the mouth... this beer poured a cloudy brown w/ gold highlights, no head and no lacing. Creamy and smooth, light bodied.
