[Thanks to fonefan]. Bottled. Brown colour with an off-white head, dense and with a good duraition. Aroma has burnt sugar, sweet and cookies notes.

Sammy (8420) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2007
More attitude than the blonde, there is a lot of head on a deep brown body. Medium plus mouthfeel, with a tad of bittersweet cocoa and lots of chocolate malt. Bit of sour finish and strong carbonation. Alcohol catches up to you. Overall satisfying.Thanks Phyl21ca/boutip for the hitchikers.

ekstedt (5356) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2007
75 cl bottle at Delirium Café, Göteborg, Sweden. Hazy copper, thin beige head. Candyish, a bit roated malt aroma, with clove and cinnamon. Very smooth mouthfeel. Unbalanec flavour with a cloying sweetness, and unmasked alcohol. Still, quite interesting.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2007
Bottled. Very much Belgian X-mas here, overloaded with spices. Dark brown colour. Sweet cake with clove and very spicy nose. Banana tidbits, thick mouthfeel and seet with apparent alcohol. Bit too much. Gingerbread. Licorice. Overwhelming sweetness. Props though for the fact that something is happening here.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2006
Bottle, at Plan B, RBESG pub crawl, August 2005. Quite dark colour, with some reddish notes. Quite yeasty aroma, with plenty of spices showing through. Plenty of plummy, cherry fruit on the palate, with more festive spices - cinnamon to the fore. Quite sweet, and full, but remains clean on the palate. Very nice.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2005
Cinnamon and nutmeg spiciness greet the nose along with a fair amount of alcohol and burnt brown sugar sweetness. Opaque black body with low tan head that recedes to a dense ring. Spicy, nutmeg flavour with notes of chocolate and some dark malt roastiness. Soft texture to the fine-bubbled, lively carbonation. Bottle sampled at Plan B in Copenhagen.
