Bottle. Dark amber colour. Aroma is raisin, too much alcohol. Lively carbonation - for me too high. Not very impressive. Cybercat (6331) - Georgia, USA - DEC 14, 2017
Taps opaque caramel with a serviceable buff head. Aroma features pomme fruit, toasted malt and woody hops. Flavor presents sweet and slightly tart fruit, toasty malt and woody hops, with tropical and toffee hints. Mouthfeel offers firm body and sassy fizz. Just grand!

The aroma is malt, caramel and a slight fruitiness. Pours a golden brown with virtually no head. The taste is a medium sweet and sour. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation soft and the finish long. Very Good! kapusil (1558) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 24, 2017
0.75l bottle. Dark ruby body with a lasting beige head and floating sediment. Candi sugar comes first in the aroma followed by some dried fruits and dark fruits (dates, raisins, figs). It also has a minimal licorice to it that I don't really like but it's not that strong in this beer so I don't mind. It's spicy too (nutmeg and pepper comes to my mind). The taste is a bit more herbal and spicy than the aroma and licorice shows up here too. This is balanced with a candi sugar and caramel-like sweetness. The finish has a bit of toast and a hint of chocolate. The body is medium so as the carbonation. Great Belgian ale. Inhopwetrust (47) - Venezia, ITALY - NOV 11, 2017
Una birra belga che comunque ha qualcosa da invidiare al Belgio per complessità e un filo di corpo mancante. Piacevole da bere ma non eccelsa.

Slightly hazy amber color with beige head. Aroma has really nice malts with crème brûlée and burnt sugar notes. Taste is malty and sugary but not really sweet. Really balanced with caramel flavor balanced by a background bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Complex yet balanced with well integrated flavors. andrepintado (3745) - Porto, PORTUGAL - SEP 29, 2017
75cl bottle. Red hazy appearance. Medium bitterness and light sweetness. Medium body. Aroma and flavour is caramel, hops, phenolic, spices, nutty. BeardedAvenger (1255) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2017
Keg at Brewdog CJ. Caramel sweet aroma. A ruby brown. A few mm of off-white head. Medium sweet. Some light bitterness creeps in to a boozy finish. Mediim bodied. Sticky slick A prickle of carbonation. Relatively anrupt finish. Lovely. Feel like it should be Christmas. Cunningham (8525) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2017
Nice amber color with a fine off white head. Good lacing. Ok intensity in the aroma. Full body and a fine carbonation level. Pleasant to drink. Balanced sweetness. Fruity, yeast, toffee and some spices in the flavor. Nice tasty evening sipper. Good complexity.beerplace (2287) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 24, 2017

Taster at Rogues Convention Center during the Alesmith Canadian Sales start event with Slack guys. Pours a clear amber with a weak tan head. Aroma is very fruity, sweet, with caramel notes. Same taste, very close to the original Belgian beers. Good work, Alesmith!
