Defreni (2618) - Husum, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2007
Fad. Flot sort øl med en lille smule skum. GOd juleøl med den klassiske belgiske måde at gribe det an på, men desværre manglede der en del i mundfylden som var mærkelig tynd. Dette betyder at alkoholen træder lidt mere frem end normalt, hvilket trækker en kende ned. Ellers lækker øl.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 25, 2009
2007, 750 mL bottle courtesy of Butters at the Barrios Nashville tasting. Poured a muddy brown color with ruby red highlights and a two finger off white head. The aroma was thyme, coriander and a sour note. The flavor was very spicy, with some warming alcohol, and a bit of metal on the tip of the tongue. The palate was average, with a very dry mouthfeel, average carbonation and a medium body.

DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Bottle. Fruity aroma. Beautiful reddish brown body with large beige head. Flavor is mild, fruity, malt. Finish is somewhat sweet. A pleasant but not overly remarkable beer.

RichardW (1528) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2009
750ml bottle, Bacchus, Ncl. Again, rated after a beer fest session, but this was melow and warming, rich yet far too easy to drink and at 10%, a wee bit dangerous. Served in the correct glass too, which is always a bonus. One to savour and re-rate when I’ve consumed a bit less, I reckon

brenn79 (1545) - Idaho, USA - SEP 29, 2009
750 bottle-2005 vintage- Very mellow, you don’t taste the 10% alcohol, a very nice spicy flavor. This is a decent Christmas ale, but overall an inferior strong Belgian beer.

DKthe13 (56) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2009
Full scaled winter beer with lot’s of alcohol. It feels like the same beer as McChouffe which indicates highly carmaled malt. Many different spices can be smelled and tasted. (koriander, dates, pepper)
