An opaque brown beer with a huge light brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel, spices, and celery. The flavor is very sweet spicy with the alcohol shining thru.

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2005
Impressive creamy head, that never dies down. Sweet complex flavor, that unfortunately borders on nauseating. Dry but yet fruity finish. Typical Belgian and quite nice. And of course: cool label!

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2005
Pours a fluffy light brown head on a deep dark brown body. Lots of sweet chocolate in the aroma along with dark fruit, raisins, plums and hint of berries. Sweet, full and very nice. Flavor starts sweet with a good sour/bitterness towards the end. Pretty well-balanced with roasted malt, cookie, chocolate and sour fruit notes.
Thanks a lot Michael (Dalle) for the bottle!

TBone (11941) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2004
Bottled (BB 12/2005)
Dark ruby with huge tanned head, lots of lace. Roasted aroma of black coffee and burned sugar. Very port-wineous mouthfeel. Caramel, candy-like flavor with some roasty notes. Sweet, maybe even too sweet. A bit like Scotch Silly. Allcohol warms in the aftertaste. For dessert, and to drink slowly.

motelpogo (6131) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 27, 2004
bottle. pretty dark with a thin creamy head. tantalising aroma of coriander and clove as well as cream and lemongrass. tastes a lot like abbaye des rocs - lots of cream, port, christmas biscuits, ginger. really tasty and luscious, quite sweet but it works

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 25, 2004
(Bottled, BBE 2005?) Very, very dark, reddish brown color with a huge, tanned head and strong lacing. Sweetish, very malty, syrupy aroma with raisins and spices. Some wineous old ale character. Syrupy sweet flavor with lots of dried fruit, spices, strong licorice hints, some chocolate and a short, caramel-syrupy finish. Quite full-bodied, sticky-syrupy and foamy, but soft-carbonated palate. A delicious and reasonably complex, full-bodied dessert brew. Too sugary to drink in larger quantities.

Great spicy dark and full bpdied beer, nicely masted ABV, glides down ones throat, very xmasy winter beer.
