JorisPPattyn (7815) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 24, 2007
Dense but small beige head over ruby-red shot, very dark beer. Very perfumey, almonds, alcohol & higher alcohols, sugars and roasted notes. Human sweat, sweet malts, liquorice, a bit of cypress flavour and loads of dark malts. Very creamy, velvety texture, well-bodied & alcohol warming. Sweet and thick. Not bad, but not really great beer.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark brune with a creamy tan head. Spicy fruity spritz pepper and apple aroma. Cinnamon and some yeasty spices. Sweet cane sugar with vinous hints and some apple like sweet and tart flavor. Some alcohol warming that is well masked by the spiciness and moderately sharp carbonation. Decent brew.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2009
Deep dark brown beer with a thin white head. Aroma is lightly tart and chewy with a distinct nose of licorice and clove. A touch of mint and more anise character. There is a bit of light vineous tartness on the front. Flavour shows a lot of candied fruit and heavy spiciness. Cooked caramel, clove, coriander and a touch of lemon. A fairly hot peppery flavour on the back. Light chewy cherry/sweet toasted malt flavour. Heavy spice and woodiness and a lingering bitterness.
