leghorn99 (115) - Livorno, ITALY - JUL 25, 2015
Versa nel bicchiere di un colore marrone-ambrato, con riflessi rossastri; una bella schiuma soffice, cremosa, densa, che si dissipa lentamente. Aroma piacevolmente dolce di malto, frutta candita, note leggere di spezie sono presenti, finitura luppolata. Il gusto è dolce, fruttato, accompagnato da note di cacao e spezie, il finale è discretamente amaro. E’ abbastanza alcolica, ma ha un corpo mederato e una discreta carbonazione.

Grima (2189) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JUL 16, 2015
Bottle from Auchan Market, Luxembourg City!
Pours muddy brown with a high off-white head. Aroma has caramel, toffee, brown sugar and nuts. Taste of sweet caramel and brown sugar, as well as nutty and roasty notes. Some spicy belgian yeast in the background. Finish is yeasty, spicy and slight perfumey.

slowrunner77 (7100) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 7, 2015
a decent BSA. Malt and yeast forward with caramel and fruity bubble gumbeing the main players. Overcarbonation takes away a little.

martin00sr (1589) - Haderslev, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2015
Hazy dark amber, stable offwhite froth. Caramel and dried fruit aroma, rather light. Flavour is sweet with caramel, dried fruit, some spicy yeast and well balanced alcohol. Decent.

Shark_Pants (452) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2015
Coppery red pour with a one finger sudsy tan head that leaves nice lacing. Earthy and grassy hops, candi sugar, caramel, some dark fruits in the aroma. The taste is very grassy for the style, caramel, a bit of plum. Apart from the strong grassy hops, it tastes watery for a 9.5% ABV brew. Quite disappointing, I much preferred the Reinaert Tripel.

Muggus69 (1533) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUN 25, 2015
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 15/01/17 Hazy deep copper body, holds a dense cm of white head. Somewhat subdued nose manages to exude richness - toffee/brown sugars, toast, biscuity malts, white pepper, minerals, light peary fruit esters, doughy yeast. Lovely thick mouthfilling texture, creamy carbonation. Opens out nicely on the body - tan toffee, biscuity malts, yeasty notes of clove, pepper, pale fruits. Lifted bitterness for style, warming, long easy finish. Nice stuff!

DwarfeD (1608) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2015
33cl bottle at home. Somewhat hazy amber brown with a medium white soapy head. Medium body with low to moderate carbonation. Very sweet with some herbal bitterness. Caramel, malts, brown sugar, herbs and spices. Ok, but not too special.

Marduk (3991) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 29, 2015
330ml bottle. Murky brown color. Medium size, brown head, stays. Caramel, plastic, faint alcohol, sweet, dark fruits in aroma. Not much of aroma. Caramel, liquid butter, fat, woody, fruity, hops in taste. Very complex taste. Like little bit of everything and then again nothing. I like it. Medium bitterness. Feels thin and some might even say watery, but with character. 9.5%? You must be kidding. No sign of alcohol.
