thewolf (11192) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2011
Bottle, bought @ Bier Tempel, Brussels.
Pours hazy brown with a giant, frothy, beige head. Looks to have a bit of carbonation, this one. Exqusite aroma of caramel, prunes, plims, figs, coriander, holly, cardemum and pine. Fairly vinious as well. Mediumto high carbonation, dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is very nice as well, caramel, light chocolate, biscuits, Belgian sugar, cardemum again, some pear. Only mildly vinious in the flavour, just elegantly warming. A very, very good Belgian Christmas beer.

goozen (3003) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2011
Bottle 0,33ltr: Hazy brown coloured ale with an big foamy head, and great well balanced spicy taste. Yes its now in the Netherlands the hottest place in Europe on the moment, but this is an great christmas ale for the eastern times.

mike_77 (3270) - NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2011
Pours with a massively carbonated head which slowly recedes. Rich aroma. A little bit of wood, port and spice. Flavour has just a mild bitterness. It’s warming and has a huge amount of in-mouth carbonation. Some liquorice and clove comes through.

TBone (12821) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 16, 2011
Bottled 33cl (Bier Tempel, vintage 2010)
Deep ruby color, huge cloudy beige head, lace. Aroma has licorice, plums and anise. Medium-bodied. Quite alcoholic brew. Sticky alcohol punch in the front, then hoppy bitterness, licorice with salty aftertaste, some spices and plums. Complex and intensive. Some similarities to Het Anker’s beers, but this is much stronger.

Abio (1616) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JAN 23, 2011
Dark brown beer, with a hugh off-white/light beige head. It holds nice, and sticks nice to the glass. The smell is decent: spices, sweet fruits and caramel. The taste is about the same, a bit metallic comes up, but it’s just slightly. The hops gets trough, the dark fruits, spices and sweet caramel are at the front row.

2010 bottle from Beer Temple. Dark brown with top head. Nose of malts, sugar and dark fruits. Quite nice taste of chocolate, berries, coffee, toffee and malts. Creamy texture. Very enjoyable. Merry christmas !

FatPhil (9423) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 7, 2011
Tap (Erasmus, Bruges) 2009 edition, drunk 2011-01
7 Beautifully rich mellow roast aroma. Sweet and gently burnt. Later anis and caraway come through quite distinctly.
5 Black, large tight persistent tan head
8 Rich roasty retronasals, pleasantly fruity, some plum, some lighter fruits and lighter esters too. Stands up to the best Het Anker, so full, but so beatufully mellow.
5 Beautiful soft palate, very full, and with lovely pleasnt gentle carbonation.
16 The year of aging has helped mellow this beautifully. So much not a big beer, no hint of 10+%.
