Dark red color, little brown. Smell little bit ashes, not much more. Taste is a little bitter. Nice beer. MPA (999) - Amager (form. NÝrrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - AUG 2, 2011
Bottle from Menno - thx. Beautiful amber with a nice off white head. Spicy aroma with notes of cloves, apricot and marcipan. Flavour has an initial caramel and fruit sweetness which is quickly substituted by a solid, dry bitterness that comes wrapped in an alcoholic full body. This beer delivers on multiple levels, but doesnít exceed itís own limitations within the style. I could drink this often, but the aroma would probably keep me from it, as cloves remind me of some bad experiences with Becherovka. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Draft. Large off-white head, cloudy dark amber. Aroma is moderately sweet, raisin, some grapefruit/earthy, light smoke. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, orange, some earthy/grapefruit. Medium body, light stickiness, low carbonation. dutchbeerpages (2439) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2011
Aroma of sweet fruit preserve and a huge white uneven head. True to its style with the bitterness of an IPA. Nice sweet aftertaste that stays forever. Bottle from Ton Overmars in Amsterdam. mile (3932) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 12, 2012
Bottle. Dark brown, hazy, average and mostly lasting head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel with light fruitiness, some citrus - grassy hoppyness, light alcohol. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, light caramel and fruitiness, some grassy hoppyness, light alcohol. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel, some grassy hoppyness, some alcohol. Lightly sweetish strong ale with nice grassy hoppyness - bit too much alcohol in the finish.

Bottle, Dark amber, XL offwhite head.
Aroma of wood, eaisin, caramel. A taste of honey, fruit, and caramel. Good lasting finish. TheCametron (2480) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 28, 2012
Bottle. Reddy orange with foamy white head. A fruity beer with a clear alcohol presence. Berries and bubblegum with a bitter finish. Itís not really very well balanced. The flavours are cobbled together. erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 20, 2012
Glowing amber body, big bubbly light tan head. Light haze. Big aroma, enormously fruity, strawberry, cherry, blueberry, fermented fruit, candy, wine gums, some rye. Very sweet, but rich. Oily mouthfeel, bit sticky. Very Belgian. Pretty sweet body, balanced a bit by a good amount of straightforward bitterness. Alcohol shines through. Full mouthfeel feel, not an easy drink. Over the top maybe, but I can appreciate this. End with spiced, pickled orange peel. Not super refined though. Hard for me to assign a style or think of a comparable beer. Glad I tried this.

Dark red with a little bit of brown in it. Very strong aroma of yeast and pastry. Smells like a frikkin home brew. Yet itís a pretty good aroma. Flavour is somewhat sweet. Pretty interesting brew. borisz (418) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 31, 2012
Dark ruby brew, fruity aroma. Carbonation under control. Complex. Rather sour, cherries, rhubarb. Does not fit into standard categories. Vinous. Ends up bittersweet, there are strong hop elements dancing around a body that has plenty malt sweetness. Fine, but one bottle is enough at a time.
