330ml bottle at ‘t Brugs Beertje. Creamy, off-white head. Golden-brown body, near-clear. Aroma of dried and fresh fruits. Dates, prunes and bitter spices in flavour supported by dark honey. Modest hints of alcohol. Smooth and well bodied. A good one (Brugge, 03.05.2011).

kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2011
Quite ok head. Light brown colour, pretty unclear. Do I smell right, this has a smell of meat? Taste is malty and quite dry. Primary aroma is earthy, some sort of dirt. There’s secondary aromas which consist at least citrus and floral. Not super great, but ok beer.

Little cloudy red brown beer, aery light off-white head, unstable and non adhesive. Aroma: raisins, almost vinous, dried fruits, malts, alcohol and caramel. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: caramel, toast, some hops. Aftertaste: clearly chocolate with some mocha and spices (cloves). Ends a bit dry from the hops.

czar (4371) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2011 pours hazy dark copper without a head. aroma is awkward - barnyard malts, maybe something related to dates, but it truly smells like spoiled fruits, and not ripened... taste is about the same with some nice burnt caramel malts. low carbonation, medium body, oily and sticky, but not cloying. did not like this one.

330ml bottle (Cambrinus, Brugge)
7 Sweet date aroma, fair amount of hoppiness accumulated above the huge head. A touch of chocolate after the head fades.
4 Cloudy murky reddy brown, huge frothy head, sinky flecks.
8 Rich roasty retronasals, toffee, a touch of chocolate, and loads of liquorice. Dates not really so obvious, but it is definitely sweet and dark fruity.
4 Crisp palate, lively carbonation. Finish absolutely swimming with liquorice. Nearly keeping up with that is a huge spiky noble hop bite.
15 Excellent beer. Just a bit of the 9% appears in the finish as it warms up, but apart from that it keeps the alcohol well hidden
