kerenmk (2002) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 28, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Stas’ place. Thanks Ariel T. As Vicaris Winter 2012. Dark brown, floaties, tan foam. Sweet raisins,some ash and syrup aroma, a little burn coffee taste that becomes sweet combined with winter fruit. Full body, a little too carbonated, sweet coffee finish.

Full bodied and earthy dark beer with a very subtle red hue, though has a bit of an overwhelming alcoholic scent.

DuffMan (6164) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle, shared with my wife. Medium-to-dark brown, chestnut brown I guess, with a lively tan head that retains as a dense pad. Aroma is sweet brown bread, brown sugar, and dark stewed fruits. Bready yeast and sugary dark malts combine with rather intense figs and raisins, ending with light phenols and warmth. Delicious.

boto (1808) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Draught @ Monks: This is the 2013 release. This one pours a dark brown color with about a half finger of tan head. It leaves some lacing. Nice nose! Spicy and peppery, malts, dark fruits and a hint of chocolate. The taste is very good. Some coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, bready, spices, toffee and a hint of woodsiness. Nice!

kbudd19 (393) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 19, 2014
2012 bottle, quad brown pour with a two fingers of nice looking head with good retention. Big malty aroma, sherry like, thick brown sugar, spices, lots of sweetness. Taste is not nearly as sweet as the aroma, still very malty, some spices, slight bitter dry finish, that lingers on the back of your tongue, really nice beer.

Douberd (1705) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at Cafe Meijers, Arnhem. 2011 Vintage. Into a Trappist glass, ABV 10% Deep brown colour and slighty hazy on the body. Almost two fingers of brown head, good density. Average retention, traces of lacing left behind. Aroma of dark fruits, plums, caramel. Taste is sweet, malts, lots of dark fruits with plums and some raisins, vanilla, quite a few spices as well. The alcohol very notable. Medium body, carbonation on good levels with a bite on the tongue. Tasty beer, great winter warmer and great sipper too.

Vicaris en version spéciale de Noël, brassée en octobre 2011, donc 2 ans et 4 mois à la dégustation. Il est toujours intéressant de laisser vieillir ce type de bière forte (10 % abv) et légèrement épicée, pour apprécier tout le bouquet. Cette hivernale est faite avec 3 malts, et mérite un verre trappiste pour sa dégustation. Couleur brun profond, quasi noir, mais rousse en transparence (selon un effet assez classique). Bulles moyennes à fines partout dans le verre. Mousse beige foncé qui tient à 2/3 mm, assez crémeuse. Arômes de café, zeste d’orange, pruneau, figue, blé noir, abricots confits. 1ère bouche plutôt souple sur du café fort, avec une pointe de porto et d’anis étoilé. Arrière-bouche assez ample, avec une fine pointe de guignolet et des cerises noires. 2ème avec beaucoup plus de fondu, du cake au café, des prunes, du tabac noir. 3ème au bel équilibre complété par des épices, et un alcool chaleureux. Arrière-bouche plutôt de liqueur de café, mais avec un fond malté torréfié. La longueur a beaucoup de classe, de la force mais aussi de la finesse. La levure est d’une très belle ligne de caractère, rageuse. L’alcool remplit parfaitement son travail d’accompagnement et de soutien. Nous avons vu qu’il était chaleureux dès la 3ème bouche, et il ne faillira pas sur la longueur. La finale est majestueuse, pleine de mystères. Du malt, levure, café, épice, chocolat noir, etc. Conclusion : une très grande bière sur un registre de très haut vol, avec des découvertes constantes à faire. Donc une bière à redéguster à différents âges, dans différentes conditions, etc. Assurément un must...
