Kasteelfreak (341) - Fallbrook, California, USA - FEB 6, 2007
Bought in 2004. Hazy orange with a very very nice retaining, creamy head. Aroma is sweet caramel and maybe a bit of orange. Flavor is amber ale like - a little sweet, malty, not much complexity. Very easy drinking for 7.5%. Body is a little thin. Nice easy drinking, pleasant beer - not much more than that.

Reconqvista (339) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 11, 2015
Hazy orange color beer with a no head. Aroma is malt caramel, with some roasted and yeasty notes. Flavor is very sweet with a weaker bitterness. Body is oily and carbonation is low. Hoppy dry end.

Bottle from Liquid Solotions: A: Lots of lacing from this dark amber ale with a good amount of sediment pieces. S: Heavy malt, chestnuts, candied sugar, T: Alcohol is fairly well hidden but becomes much more pronounced as the ale gets warmer. Its similar to a nut brown but darker. I plan on cellaring a couple of bottles for a year or two and revisiting. M: decent amount of carbonation and smoother when cold. D: Not very. One or two 12oz bottles for the night at most. But mainly because of the alcohol content as the taste is good. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-16-2008

Bottle, 375ml. Pours russet, with little short-living head, and soft lacing. Fruity on the nose, and full-bodied on the palate, with well balanced yeast, barley, and malt, with the faintest of notes of honey. With the reassuring sediment of a properly fermented beer, a very decent ale.

Neeskens (328) - SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2010
Hazy amber/copper. Dried fruit, caramel malt and alcohol in aroma. Pretty much the same in flavour. Smaller taste than expected and the alcohol comes thru pretty much.

3.2
GlassBrass440 (321) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 26, 2015
Pours a cloudy copper with a soft white head. Aromas of fruit cake: bready, sweet, fruity, spices. Flavours are of sweetened dried fruits, honey, orange, and herbal (spearmint). Very high carbonation makes for a short, dry finish.

3.3
RaginCajun (320) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2006
Slightly sweet almost "tea-like" aroma with a hint of chocolate. Cloudy brown with a rapidly diminishing head. Not much flavor on the nose, but it runs off the sides and makes for a bitter taste on the finish. This brew is not very think and does not really remind me of other winter brews. Seems like this would be more suited for a spring beer IMO.

bgiamatei (317) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - JAN 30, 2010
Sem dúvida uma boa cerveja. Coloração caramelo escuro - fosca devido a fermentação. Espuma de boa formação cremosa, branco neve (suja). Cheiro bem maltado, alcool bom.Densa, encorpadae aveludada. Forte. Amarga com um ótimo retrogosto também amargo. Suavemente torrada. Alcool disfarçado. Boa.

EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2008
Bottle (2006). Very cloudy amber with non-existent head. Malt aroma with tinges of vanilla, fruit and alcohol. Smooth on the palate, taste of fruit and vanilla with a very dry, hoppy finish. Looked like shit, tasted superb.

3.2
brewbandit (312) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Malty aroma with a light head. Body seemed a bit thin and the malt flavor seemed to weaken. Touch of oxidation detected.
