Benzai (11869) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, - JAN 31, 2013
33cl bottle shared with Dutchdrebus. Almost opaque dark brown color with some redness coming through. Medium to full sized beige head that diminishes fairly quickly. Don’t get much aroma but that might be me since I have a bit of a cold. Taste malts, some caramel, slightly liquorice and slightly black fruits. Medium body and carbonation.

Reddish brown, minimal head. Aroma has some malts. Full body taste,, medium bitterness, a bit short finish. Nice but a bit overrated.

vipinvelp (3321) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2016
Clear dark ruby, tanned lasting, lacing foam head. Aroma is light caramel, some hop, some spices. Complex taste, mix of bitterness, caramel and spices - pepper. Nice aftertaste - good beer. (Velp 201602)

ForlornHope (288) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2016
Bottle at home (2014 edition). Pours a deep brown-red colour with a small tan head. Rich aroma of roasted malt and dark fruits; yeasty and almost woody. Taste is sweet to start and then bitter. Lots of flavours: port wine, stewed fruit, chocolate, licorice and slightly herbal hop. Like liquid Christmas cake, the booze is evident and gives it a nice finish. Really good with dark chocolate.

cmacklin (577) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 31, 2016
330ml bottle. (As Vicaris Winter 2012) Pours a murky, dark reddish brown with plenty of sediment and a large, frothy, long lasting, tan head that laces. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, dried fruit, licorice, yeast and alcohol. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, dried fruit, brown sugar, licorice and warming alcohol leading to a dry, bitter, spicy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Nice.

Boxereddy (364) - BELGIUM - DEC 25, 2015
Gedronken als Winter 2014. Roodbruin bier met een mooie cremekleurige schuimkraag. Gebrande mout in de neus met toetsen van gedroogd fruit en chocolade. Smaak brengt de aroma’s helemaal terug. Mondgevoel is compleet, de afdronk kort en bitterig. Een stevig winterbier.

mahogany colour, moderate sized creamy beige head; aroma of dried cherry, figs, some chocolate, wallnut notes, alcohol and hints of anise; taste of dried cherry, chocolate, some wallnut, biscuit and anise notes as well as alcoholic warmth; good Christmas beer

adster (603) - HUNGARY - DEC 22, 2015
Igen megnyugtató dolog olyan belgian strong ale-t kortyolni, amely alapjában véve is nagyszerű ital, ünnepi köntösben tálalva pedig még szerethetőbb, a belga vonalak így felértékelődnek, különlegessé válnak. A stílus amúgy is meglehetősen alkalmas arra, hogy a legváltozatosabb mondanivalóval kerüljön megtöltésre, változatossága okán könnyedén illeszthetünk hozzá akár karácsonyi jellemvonásokat is, ez a típusú ital könnyedén elviseli, ha ünnepi hangulat hordozóiként tekintenek rá. Rubinvörös árnyalatokat megvillantó mahagóni teste krémes, bézs színű habpaplan viselője, ahogyan az lenni szokott, az összkép igen harmonikus. Tejszínes masszában ázó aszalványos, diókrémes, fügés-datolyás csemegeként ható aromái tetszetősek, klasszikusan belga stílusúak, akárcsak bársonyos kortyai által megformált ízvilága, amiben a süteménytésztás, eperlekváros, élesztőtől sziporkázó jegyek domborodnak ki. Igazán kellemes ital, téli esték csemegéje.

Een donkerbruin bier met een grbrandemoutgeur. Schuim trekt snel weg. In het smaakpalet zitten koffie, pure chocolade, pruim, karamel en honing.
