FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - MAR 27, 2012
(Long awaited!) bottle at North Bar, Leeds (Lowlands Festival). Pours a deep brown, two fingers of bubbly light brown head, that quickly dies. Aroma is incredible - spicy Belgian esters, malt, a bit of hop spice, little bit of cappuccino. Taste is equally brilliant - Belgian ester, dried fruits, malt, touch of coffee grain, cinnamon, aniseed. Sweet front brilliantly balanced by a hoppy bitterness on the end. Slightly oily mouthfeel, great medium carbonation, pretty kbt, tasty balanced finish. Completely excellent.

Boutip (6087) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2012
Bottle: Poured a deep cloudy brown color ale with a nice medium size foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of sweet Belgian-style malt with notes of dry fruits and light candy notes. Taste is also a nice mix between some semi-sweet malt notes with some nice candy-like ester and some dry raisins and plums notes. Body is full with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very nice beer to enjoy by the fireside on a cold winter night.

ElDesmadre (3625) - Mikołw, POLAND - MAR 20, 2012
Bottle from Bierkoning, many thanks! Almost black with a huge, beautiful, frothy head. Now that looks fantastic! Complex aroma - on one hand there are rough elements like a sharp yeastiness and spices, on the other hand there are soft elements like apples and other ripe fruit. There is also a strong walnut presence and a quite prominent grassy hoppiness. The maltiness is caramelly with dark bread. High carbonation, intensive and sweet flavour balanced by a strong, quite sharp hop bitterness. Flavourwise its mainly caramel, walnut and ripe fruit, with some mineral earthiness and grassy hops in the aftertaste. In the beginning the beer comes over quite aggressive and devoid of subtlety, with time it gets a bit more soft. Its highly aromatic and very bitter, with the alcohol being masterfully hidden. Very good!

eeez (47) - Thatcham, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2012
Pours very dark brown with large tan head. Not much aroma but I thought of milk chocolate. Taste is equally odd with unplacable sweet dark fruits, followed by some bitter hoppiness and a touch of alcohol. Hard for me to describe but very nice nevertheless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

visionthing (4956) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 5, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Pours dark brown, almost black with a light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, hops, caramel, chocolate, coffee and dried fruits. Sweet with full body. Hints of alcohol. Nice!

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2012
Sampled from a 0.33 L bottle. Tall sand-colored head. Body is lively, near-clear deep brown. Burnt caramel, perfume, tin canned fruits and faint chocolate to the nose. Sweet-flavored. Caramel- and fruit-sweetness. Light roasty notes, and hint of wood and straw/grass. Balancing bitterness. Smooth and filling in the mouth. Spicy endnotes. A pretty nice and exciting one.

Bottle 330ml @ Patricks Pub og Restaurant, Kristiansand
Pours deep ruby brown with a huge off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, dried fruits, caramel and chocolate. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and light to medium bitter with a long fruity finish. Body is full, texture is oily, over carbonated.

larsga (7376) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2012
Gusher. Huge beige head. Tiny deep dark brown body with strong carbonation. Earthy peachy roasty aroma with metallic floral grassy notes. Sweet-dryish earthy chocolatey peachy taste with salty licorice notes. Fullish body. Soft, mild mouthfeel. Theres alcohol in this? Dry salty earthy chocolatey aftertaste with resiny floral notes. Nice, drinkable, and absolutely lethal. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)
