Bottle at Churchkey. Hazy chestnut color, small edge head, scant lacing. Aroma of butterscotch, dishwashing soap, licorice candy. Taste is licorice and root beer candy. Body is slightly syrupy and oily. Interesting. Plovmand (8266) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2010

A Mes rate. Bottle thanks hugely to Nate as part of the Imperial Geezer Tasting.GandGKevin (934) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Hazy orange colour with a very good beige head. Raisins and caramel, lots of fruit and some excellent malt, although it’s just a little on the pukey side. Bags of spice but not overdone at all. Good balance considering the complexity. Surprisingly easy drinking. Good stuff.
Not bad, pretty tasty. Nutty fruity nose, light fruity caramel on the palate. Overall pretty good, but expensive. andyhwcinc (1884) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2012
’11 version. Enjoyed from bottle as part of Delilah’s winter beer tasting in Chicago, IL. Excited to try this after hearing the unique political situation of which this brewery operates. Appearance is a moderate dark gold with a thin bubbly white head. Aroma very malty with a strong spice component. Taste its pretty good, rich in spice with hints of clove, powerful yeast, rich malts. Good job, prisoners.

750 ml bottle to snifter (Thanks Secret Santa). Looks good; a mostly opaque amber with off-white lacing. Smells solid; dark fruit, candy, malt, and Belgian yeast. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. I like this beer! phaleslu (10100) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2012
750 ml bottle shared by b3shine- thanks, Beau! Pous a cloudy amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma of mixed spices, lots of fruits, caramel, and leaves. Figs stand out. The flavor is the same. Has a lot of Belgian quality to it. Medium-bodied, with a dry mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Nice beer. Opens something new every time you bring it up to your nose or mouth. Tmoney99 (14368) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2013

Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium fruit and spice sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a good beer
