StueyD (1555) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
A hazy reddish brown coloured beer with a frothy off white head. A light aroma of lightly roasted malt, pale caramel, toast and biscuity. Dry mouthfeel. The taste starts off with a smooth, roasted malt flavour, caramel, toasty and biscuity, a tad spicy, this is followed by a mild sour fruit flavour that lingers on into the finish. Tasted at Moeder Lambic "Fontainas" Brussels. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Belgium yeast on the nose with a sweet bitter taste - long hoppy (citrus) finish. A modern Belgium. Rated by BrewTom

NikkTwist (2546) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Draft at Strangeloves. Dark brown pour with a good amount of tan foam that left lots of lace. Dark red and browned stone fruit and berries. Warms to some nice raisin notes. Dates and prunes. Cinnamon and pepper flavors. Great aged Christmas Brew!

Bière avec une légère amertume qui reste en arrière goût. Crémeuse. Bonne bière assez classique mais sans fausse notes.

Ulysse (402) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2014
Something similar to the taras boulba in its aroma. Tastes like hazelnuts. Round and creamy on the mouth.

Shot (398) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a thin fluffy tan head. Aromas of tangy Belgian yeast, brown sugar, milk chocolate and plum. Flavors are ginger, plum, chocolate, brown sugar and biscuit. Finishes with notes of coffee and a hint of licorice. Otherwise, the finish is dry and bready. Peppery mouthfeel. Slight alcohol warmth. Overall, a very nice brew. I like this one.

AbouAli (195) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 24, 2014
couleur brun clair avec une petite mousse beige qui reste un peu et a un bon lacing. Pas totalement limpide, avec un petit nuage de levures en suspension. Sensation en bouche : réchauffement dû à l’alcool goût : malt foncés, réglisse, amertume reste bien bouche et la bière reste ronde malgré le style particulier

crlnts (390) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 24, 2014
Off-white head, lasting. Hazy dark amber. Toffee, alcohol, clove, hops. Strong bitter finish, quite unpleasant (like bitterness from roasted malts + bitterness from hops).

Skinnyviking (8585) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle at home. High creamy and very good looking off-white head. Hazy dark brown orange body. Caramel barley malt straw cocoa aroma. Lovely spicy (sorry mates I am not sure but pepper cinnamon and nutmeg are some of them) and sweet malt caramel orange peel flavor with a fair amount of hops bitterness making this beer far more interesting than expected. Low carbonation. Long bittersweet finish. Well balanced at just the right alcohol level. Thanks mates for this pleasant surprise.
