Poured a murky deep brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma of soft caramel malt and spices. Medium body, smooth oily mouthfeel. Flavour of bitter roast caramel malt and some spice with a slow, lingering spicey aftertaste.

Belle mousse crémeuse et dense. Nez frais et floral, n’annonçant pas un monstre de puissance. Bouche solide, très riche (céréales), sur des notes très torréfiées en première approche et franchement fumées en finale. Impression générale d’une Guiness made in Belgium.

Tmoney99 (10798) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Bottle. Poured a clear brown color with an average to large frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt and spice and nuts aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted sweet spice flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectation where met.

Vaiz (3391) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2012
Bottle at home. Clear deep dark reddish brown to black pour, foamy off-white head. Aroma is spicy, roasted malts, bready yeast, ripe fruits, some cardamom and a hint of licorice. Flavor is bitter, roasted, sweet spicy malts, sugary and with a decent body. Well balanced, decently carbonated. Well drinkable.

DrSilverworm (6571) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2012
11.2oz bottle. Doesn’t seem to have a date on it. Hazy darker red color. Good one-finger foamy off-white head. Few bits of lace. Mildly fruity / candy nose. Very soft, smooth carbonation, with a light body and dry texture. Some dark fruit, spice, and licorice flavors. Some kind of weird incense, dusty or ashy aspect to it. Like an old Belgian gentleman’s coat closet. A lot less easy to drink than I was hoping for.

TrefwoordPunk (816) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Pours hazy brown with a big off-white head and an aroma of toffee, sweet malts, yeast, fresh hops, fresh green fruits and herbs. The taste is mainly dominated by the hoppy bitterness, sweetness, alcohol and yeast are far more in the background. A nice winter beer.
