UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 25 cl) Dark amber with quite a huge head. Malty but the bitter hops seems to dominate in a harsh not so pleasant way. 110893 Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2005
Bottle. Dark red brown colour with a big baige head. Sweet malty fruity caramel aroma and taste. Medium to full body and a sweet finish. sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 11, 2005
(Bottled) Deep, dark red color with a large, tight and lacy head. Nutty, sweetish-malty, syrupy rye-pudding aroma with old strawberry jam and vanilla. Quite hoppy, winous and slightly alcoholic, sweetish-malty flavor. Fruity and slightly sugary. Medium to full-bodied, quite carbonated palate. Hides the ABV well. An enjoyable dessert brew with some scotch ale character. Nice! dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2005
Light brown head on a deep dark amber-ruby body. Very full taste, fruity aroma and taste, very nice indeed. Berries, citrus, caramel and roasted malts combine to give an exceptional experience. First-class beer, it reminded me of Duchesse de Bourgogne. A masterpiece of a beer. Too bad the bottle was a measly 25 cl ! aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 7, 2005
Spicy balanced and malty. Plums liqourice and mangoes. Nice roasted caramel malts and toasted bread with good biterness and a bit of acidity.

Dark amber with a medium light brown creamy head. Fruity aroma and taste. Very light sour taste. The finish is bitter. Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - OCT 25, 2004
Pours a tall frothy off-white head on a ruby colored body. Full and nice aroma of sweet malt, berries, oranges and yoghurt. Weird flavor with lots of berries but also a harsh middle. Almost like a bad dessert wine (!) Tones of citrus and alcohol. Interesting.... TheBeerGod (6208) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Bottled. Purchased at Le Petit Vaudree. Dark ruby brown. Medium tan head. Nose is fruity and spicy with a dark fruit note. Rich aroma. Taste is fruity and flowery with cocoa and some sweetened malt notes. Body is abundant carbonation with a spicy feel to it. Finish is sweet and malty with a nice spicy note at the end.

Chocolate cherries and almond paste adrift on an alcohol pond...Yeasty harshness hides a few candies, plums and raisins under its aromatic branches...Between rough and rustic charm for a Christmas offering... tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2004
Enticing aroma of brown malts and sweet candi sugar with gentle spice and yeast notes... Almost like a mild Noel. Clear brown with fine tan head that recedes slowly to cover. Heavy malt flavours float on soft, small-bubbled carbonation. Full-flavoured with not even a trace of alcohol apparent. Long, sweet, fruity and spicy finish manages to never be cloying. Flavours remain distinct yet counterpoint each other very well. Soft palate and medium body with moderate carbonation. A very elegant treat and a wonderful surprise. Bottle enjoyed with MartinT and Rastacouere.
