alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - OCT 17, 2006
Sweet, Perfumey and slightly spicey. Lots of sediment in the bottle so pour carefully. Prickly carbonation with a dried fruit aftertaste. Slightly watered down and lacking in body. Nice bottle and presentation but dont judge this book by its cover its an average Ale.

Gustav1996 (333) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 23, 2010
330ml bottle: BBD 03.19.09. Poured a dark red/amber with a small off-white/beige head. Aroma: lots of spice & caramel, fresh fruits, malt, booze. Taste: caramel, malt, booze, mild water & spice. Medium body, sticky mouthfeel. Overall: good, but not that great... I want to try a fresh bottle to see if this one was just past its prime.

Bottle. Copper brown, clear with a nice big light brown foam. Sweet malty aroma. Taste has nut, wood and some orange. Sour in the middle with a mild alcohol punch. Pleasant round woody aftertaste. Good solid body. Lively carbonation.

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2012
Pours clear amber with a medium tan head. The aroma is complex - spicy belgian yeast, rich malt, deep earthy notes, toast. The taste is also complex, with toasty malt, sweetness, alcohol and whiskey. Full bodied but not cloying.

rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2012
0.33l bottle from LCBO. Served in a tulip. Pours a transparent dark brown, with a thin off-white head, tons of carbonation. Aroma: Strong notes of caramel, malt, nuts. Faint hints of banana, vanilla. Palate: Medium bodied, smooth, slightly fizzy, easy finish. Taste: Fairly sweet, slight bitterness in the finish. Very malty. Nice.

MrGGen (331) - ITALY - NOV 5, 2010
Comprata alla Basko(cosa che non ha mancato di stupirmi) in bottiglia da 33 cl. Versa di colore arancione ramato, un pò opacp con una schiuma sottile bianca. Aroma di lievito e un pò di caramello. Il gusto è altrettanto caramella e di lievito. Finale lungo,fruttato e maltato con tratti agrumati.Davvero notevole.

Neeskens (328) - SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2011
Hazy amber wth a off-white head. Candy sugar, caramel and some light acidity in the nose. More of the same in the taste. It don’t really take off and feels too sweet for me.

Passewaaij (326) - NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2014
Lichtbruine kleur, bijna geen schuim. Aroma van caramel, beetje als wijn. Smaak is perfect in balans, beetje zoet, beetje bitter. Erg lekker.
