Bottle (750 ml), shared. Hazy amber with a small off-white head leaving little lacing. Aroma is of caramel malt, spices (coriander mostly), orange peel and berries. Taste is moderately sweet, quite spicy (coriander again), with orange peel, caramel, mineral/earthy notes and very light bitterness. Medium body. Soft to moderate carbonation. Spicy and caramel-ish finish with mild lingering orange peel presence. Too spicy and caramel forward for my liking but not badly executed. Ok.

750 ml bottle shared by Keir - thanks again, Keir! I guess. 1996 vintage. This one pours a clear orange with no head. Notes of leather, metal, apple skins, earth, wet leaves and wood, some mild spice. Light-bodied, with low carbonation and mouthfeel that I described as "tart and weird". It’s a complete mess. I have no idea what it was like years ago but this doesn’t cellar for 20 years, it turns out. I’d rate it a lot lower if it were newer.

Ysok02 (833) - MOns, BELGIUM - JUN 24, 2016
Belle robe ambrée, fine mousse. Nez puissant sur des notes épicées, des agrumes, du fruit, une note maltée, et du caramel en finale. Bouche à l’attaque épicée, de la rondeur, une certaine sucrosité et une finale qui manque un peu de peps. Dommage car le nez était intéressant.

erickok (5169) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2016
Sweet malts, fermnting fruit, brown caramel, alcohol and estery fermentation. Sweet alcohol throughout, but oddly still satisfying. Some spices. Not refined nor well developed, but I still enjoy it. (33cl bottle from Dekoninck)

poech73 (353) - Braine, BELGIUM - APR 17, 2016
As Vapeur Cochonnette ABV 8,5 % >>Bière ambrée fort sucrée épicée sur lie. Les épices fouettent le nez en premier surtout l’orange et puis la levure. En bouche, les saveurs caramélisées des malts associés au bouquet épicé écœurent fort le palais sur des notes acres d’une amertume fruitée et rapeuse sur une belle rondeur ample cependant fort lourde sur l’estomac. Finale bien exécutée, nette sans résidu mais fort peu amère. Bonne bière desuette car trop dans la tradition

Spicy and fruity aromas and flavours. A bit oversweetened. Nice consistency, not too wattery. Yeasty. Strong. I wouldn’t mind having a few others bottles.

Brown colour with thin head. Aroma is a bit musty with some cardboard. Flavour is full of sugary sweetness. Woody dryness.

thepatrickman (714) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 23, 2015
From notes (9/5/14, Ebenezer’s in Maine). Belgian yeast notes with some light spice and a lot of grain and hay taste. Very complex, with some odd (but not at all bad) characteristics from the spices.
