TimE (3298) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 13, 2013
Cloudy brown color, light brown head. Lactic, a bit of milk chocolate, but fairly one dimensional nose. Full bodied, chocolate, malty, really boring and goes no where fast. Kinda like playing chopsticks on the piano. Boring.

Boutip (4818) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2013
Bottle: Poured a dark color ale with a large light brown foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of caramelized malt with dry figs and raisins notes with light fruity ester. Taste is also dominated by light fruity ester with some caramelized notes with some dry fruits notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. This is a well-balanced effort without too much residual sugar showing up.

DoublEE (783) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Pours a deep amber to black in color with a small off white head. In the aroma, a light spice and dry caramel. In the taste, a mix of fig and raisin juice. Quite quad like, with notes of Christmas spices. A spice bite, but mellow, and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry spice in the aftertaste.

SlovakSniper (3269) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2013
33 cl sous le nom de Vicaris Winter 2012. Meilleure avant le 21 septembre 2015. Une bière qui montre une robe brunâtre et un col mousseux presque roux. Un nez qui propose des raisins, du sucre brun, de la mélasse de dattes, des figues, de l’alcool épicé et de la réglisse. Un goût bien chocolaté, bien anisé et bien fruité : une richesse certainement plaisante. Une bouche certainement confortable avec sa douce effervescence et sa texture crémeuse. Une finale certainement liquoreuse, un peu chaude, pleine de réglisse épicée et de malts qui ne sont jamais trop sucrés.

probstblueribbon (3008) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2013
33 cl bottle from Bieropholie, served cold in a tulip glass. BB 21/09/15.

App.: Cloudy deep mahogany with a full reddish-mocha head. Aroma: Rich, malty, lightly spicy, lots of brown sugar and molasses, sort of floral and perfumed, light minty herbals, big and dark. Palate: Medium+ body, full, elegant effervescence. Flav.: Lots of molasses and big, rich, dark malts, chocolate, esters, inky and full, like a good American Impy Stout with some Belgian yeast influence; kinda sweet with fair bitterness and a long, alcoholic and very richly malty finish.

An enjoyable sipper.
