UPDATED: FEB 18, 2010 Bottle. 2009 vintage (released january 2010). Dark brown pour with frothy tan head. Aroma: Lots of spices, cloves, coriander and cinnamon. Good belgian yeast aroma too, sweet malt and a hint of something metallic thats the only throw-off. Taste is just so spicy, followed by the maltiness, it gets very fruity too, pears and apples and a solid hop and malt finale, relatively present alcohol. Palate is very rich, smooth and silky. barncatmatt (2287) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2009

750ml bottle. Thanks for opening this one Shane, never thought I’d get to try this. Pours a deep cola brown with a good sized off with head leaving some nice lacing. Some lemon zest, slightly tart berry fruits, dates and a bit of Belgian candy sugar in the nose as well as in the flavor. A very interesting brew, kick ass looking bottle. jkwalking05 (4743) - Arlington, Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2009

Cloudy deep brown with a creamy light brown head. The aroma is spicy and sour with notes of raspberries, caramel, fruits and slight balsamic. Flavour of caramel, fruit, sweet malt, yeast and molasses sugar. A little unbalanced. Too sweet and sticky.
Cloudy dark amber with a lasting off-white head. Aroma of dried fruit, brown sugar, spices and yeast, and a vineous alcohol note. Herbal flavour with rosemary in particular, plums and dark sugar, and a touch of alcohol. Dedollewaitor (16359) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2009

From bottle, blind #1, courtesy of thewolf. Pours dark and hazy brown with a small tan head. Fruity, light sourish and roasted malt aroma towards vague spiced note. Sweet, fruity, light smoked and roasted malt flavoured. Smooth fruity, spiced and roasted malt flavoured finish. Vague wooden touch alongside the spices into the far finish. thewolf (12757) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2009
