Mortlach (2510) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 25, 2014
330ml bottle shared @Buskers Pub (Rome). Brown appearance with a big head. Aroma has a lot of belgian character, malt, caramel, raisins, esters, spices. Flavour is sweet at first, with a decent bitter end, caramel, raisins, some hops traces. Medium to high body, medium carbonation. thomashall (999) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - DEC 17, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours dark brown amber with minimal head. Smells of raisins (surprise) and a little like wine with yeast. Taste same with dry finish. Good stuff! MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear amber beer with a small, quickly disappearing off white head on top. Aroma is fruity, yeasty, raisins are slightly detected in aroma. Flavor is quite sweet, lots of yeasty esters going on alongside some slight fruity notes. Even has some boozyness in it that I didn’t quite expect. Still a decent beer though, but was hoping for a bit more oomph. RickTheRick (949) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2014
Ambrée et légèrement embrouillée, la bière ne mousse que très peu lors du versement. Fruits confits, liqueur d’orange et sucre d’orge constituent un bouquet qui ferait peur à n’importe quel diabétique. En bouche par contre, c’est beaucoup moins lourd que prévu et ça se boit très facilement. Les mêmes éléments olfactifs prennent tout leur sens dans le palais. Délicieux.

Interesting beer that shows amazing depth and complexity. It has pit fruit and brings the malts to add a raisin and wine flavor. Takes a certain mood to enjoy. Holmen1 (6466) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2014
Flaske delt med Ovesen på HNB 17.11.14: klar mørk rav og tett beige skum som varer - ingenting å si på utseende , og heller ikke på aroma og smak, dette er et øl i toppklasse. Lys appelsinmarmelade blandet med aprikoser og sjokolade. Alt for lett å helle over drøvelen, glasset var tomt lenge før vi var ferdige med kveldens andre omstikking.

Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 17.11.14. Clear copper. Dense beige head. Aroma of cherry compote, prune compote and roasted nuts. Similar taste and aftertaste. A bit of fizziness at start also makes it an easily drinkable ale. gnoff (10943) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle 12 fl oz thanks to _angst_! Sampled on October 28, 2014._angst_ (5008) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2014
Clear mahogany reddish brown color, small light brown head. Sweet, unrefined sugar, alcohol, light Belgian yeast scent. Sugary, tart, toasted, light roasted taste. Dry, grainy aftertaste. Sort of fizzy mouthfeel, medium bitterness that is rather dry and a bit harsh.
Bottle bought @ Kihoskh. Pours tiny hazy reddish brown with a rather small frothy and bubbly goldenish beige head that leaves some spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet and fruity with sweet dark bread, caramel, raisins, moist wood, soil, hay, St Johns wort and caramelized orange peal. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter, slightly malty and fruity with sweet dark bread, caramel, cereal, banana, raisins, liquorice root, moist wood, orange peal and ash. Mouthfeel is round, tiny astringent, tiny sparkling and medium bodied. Finish is sweet, bitter and fruity with sweet dark bread, raisins, hay, soil, bread spices and orange peal. Quite allright...
