Countbeer (4427) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2011
Bottle: Off white foamy head on top of an amber red brown beer. Smell is a dark sweet mix of light toasty malts, sweets, fruits and some malts and spices. Taste a sweet mix of malts, red and dark fruits, caramel, light honey, spicy and someyhing very light whiskey-ish. Well balanced maybe a bit too sweet.

thewolf (11184) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2010
Bottle @ Bryglaug Belgian tasting.
Pours dark chestnut amber with a lovely, staying, creamy, beige head. Aroma has a bit of sharpness, phenolic, estery, chocolate, hazelnuts and a bit of yeast. Highish carbonation, light dryness. Flavour has chocolate, light raisins, softly vinious notes, caramel, estery. Long, lingering malty dryness. Very drinkable.

caesar (5127) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 25, 2010
Bottled. Dark brown color, medium head. Aroma of caramel malt, bit sugary sweetness, hint of chocolat and fruit, raisin. Quite sweet taste, quite some carbonation, but still decently balanced with fruity and malty flavors. Quite ok.

Abio (1572) - Waasland, BELGIUM - SEP 15, 2010
Dark red-brown. A nice big head that sticks good to the glass, and colapse just a bit to quick it seems. Aroma is sweet (caramel) fruity and well spiced, alcohol and yeast. Taste is mostly sweet (caramel), warming alcohol and spices. Expected less, pretty decent beer, but misses a boost and the aftertaste is a bit less pleasant.

wimpie133 (380) - Brugge, BELGIUM - SEP 8, 2010
Bottle, 33 cl. Dark brown beer with a red shine, medium white-beige head that lasts perfectly, also a lacing beer. Aroma is fantastic: some caramel and chocolate smell combined with dry fruits and malts, going a light sweet touch to it. Taste is malty with a hoppy background at first. The caramel taste comes more to the foreground further in the beer. Finish is dry and bitter. Pallet is quite OK, but not devastating though (lacks a bit in complexity). Although I never heard of this beer before this is certainly a decent quality beer, without being superb however.
