fiulijn (14740) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle from Beer Planet, Brussels
Dark amber color, almost brown, with huge head. Peculiar aroma, some roasted malt, dark malts, phenol, aniseed. Too much carbonation, with a slim body, chocolate flavor, dates (that’s never a favorite element), medium to low bitterness.
Strange.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2012
(Bottled, BBE 02/2012) Murky dark brown with a medium, firm and lacy head. Sourish-caramely maltiness and spicy-meaty feel in the nose, with a touch of oak. Flavor is like strongly spiced quadrupel, slightly thin when cold, but without alcohol presence. Anise is immediately present, but caraway comes with warming. Spiciness is slightly harsh and stingy, but if there was too much sweetness when fresh, it has settled by now. Medium+ body, slightly fizzy CO2. The most beery one of Zonderik/X series, but also the least interesting.

(33cl bottle, BB 17/02/12) Pours a deep amber-brown body with a medium beige head and nice Brussels lacing. Aroma of nuts, caraway, toasted brad, raisins, cumin, and honey. Flavor of coriander, caramel, honey, yeast, and cumin. Kind of odd.
