Bier brauen (246) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Closeout bottle (2010) at Red Apple $6. Brown sugar,baked apples, dark plums, soft carbonation. It’s everything you’d expect in a Belgian Strong Ale.

33cl bottle. Wow! Massive foamy head, I’ve read the comments on this beer are different each time, but I liked it!

tcon25 (251) - Duvall, Washington, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Draft pour at bottleworks, listed as the 2011. Clear amber pour, little boozy aroma, slight bitter taste, interesting beer thought it would be better.

andrewje41 (1334) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Draft 8 oz pour at Bottleworks. 2011 vintage. Pours a dark red color with a thin film head. Dark plum fruit aroma. Has a very fruity, flat wine like flavor. Almost a hint of chocolate. Overall it’s not bad, but a little flat, and less my type of flavor/beer. I would try this again.

martin00sr (1588) - Haderslev, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2015
Clear dark red brown. Airy iffwhite head disappears quickly. Aroma has malt, caramel, dried fruit and whiffs of alcohol. Perhaps coffee in the long nose. Flavour is similar with solid, warming alcohol and a little spice later on.

jamaty (1237) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
Bonito color marrón acaramelado y bonita espuma muy cremosa y algo ocre. Excelente aroma dulce malteado, caramelo y algo frutal de uvas. Rica en boca, muy sabrosa y de excelente textura cremosa. Predominio de dulce caramelo en el sabor, con toque de frutas, vainilla…. y por encima de todo, superbebible pese al alcohol que esconde maravillosamente. Si acaso le falte complejidad, pero en cualquier caso es un gustazo de cerveza.

chinchill (2989) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2015
330 ml stubby brown bottle served after some warming in a Belgian snifter. Best before 6/2016. Poured, with some sediment, into a Belgian snifter. Hazy dark brown body is topped by a small semi-durable head. Splotchy lacing. Aroma: rich, lightly sweet and very complex with a touch of alcohol. Flavor: Rich, complex and slightly bitter. Pronounced suggestions of dark fruits including dried plums. Also a bit nutty, spicy and bready. O: An Xmas ale that is neither sweet nor very spicy, but does have high, partly hidden, ABV.

asedzie (677) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Bottle. Pours deep brown with light brown head - good retention and lacing. Aroma is mild with some citrus peel, cherries and candi sugar. Flavor is mild but good - deeply caramelized malts dominate, some notes of cherry and plum - with quite a bit of alcohol bite on the finish and some lingering hop bitterness and alcohol astringency. I’m drinking this out of season, but I imagine that this would be a very nice holiday warmer - as a Belgian dark ale it is big and has a gravity to be reckoned with, something like a barleywine really.

zimbo (754) - SCOTLAND - MAY 5, 2015
Brown to russet red, this nutty sweet beer promises much but doesn’t quite live up to the hype. Even the nuttiness disappoints.

meireteixeira (159) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 3, 2015
Cor marrom escuro, turva. Espuma boa, bege e média persistência. Aroma de frutas escuras, secas e tostado. No paladar um alcoólico que remete ao vinho, encorpada, frutada e vivaz. Retrogosto levemente amargo. Excelente para os dias frios. Harmonização com carnes intensas e queijos temperados e roquefort.
