I had a nicely worded commentary about this beer but the server logged me off and I lost it. WTF it was only a few minutes since I brought up this screen. I am pissed off right now.smartlung (159) - Valrico, Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2007
Anyway, this bottle is over a year old and was a complete surprise. It was soft and smooth, yet kept me interested till the last drop. Sadly this review does not do the experiance justice and I am too angry to rewrite it since the beer is now gone.
Oh it posted now, damn it!
bottle from Knightly Spirits in Orlando - noticable orange flavor, maltly, nutmeg and other spices - very nice and very drinkable

Copper color; small disapating head. Slight aroma of amber malt, caramel and toffee. Flavor also has notes of ginger, orange liquor, mixed spices and flowers like a light saison but this is a Winter brew, Brazil nuts, medium toasted malts, and honey. I’ve had this beer many times over the years and am always happy to see it again, though it’s not as big and bold as many of the Belgian holiday brews. This one I’m having is fresh but I’ve aged it and find it’s good at least two years old. MiP (15973) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2008
Bottle, 6.8%. Clear dark copper colour. Small tan head. Citric, spicy aroma. The flavour has a nice, subtle spiciness that makes it very drinkable. Citric notes, orangy. By no means overpowering, but very pleasant and well-balanced. liinis (1791) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 6, 2008
0,75l bottle with cork
Reddish clear brown small head. heavy malts.
Very enjoyable I find caramel, and strong liquorice.
leaves your mouth a bit dry or waxed.

Bottle. Brown colour with a beige head. Aroma is cellar-notes, roasted, caramel. Flavour is cellar-notes, alcohol, roasted, caramel, hop, sweet. corby112 (2813) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Draft at the Farmers’ Cabinet in Philadelphia.
Pours a dark golden amber color with a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. The glass is left coated with soapy lacing.
Slightly spicy aroma with a nice balance of dark fruit and biscuity malt. Hints of pepper and cinnamon along with some cherry and dark berries followed by biscuity caramel malt.
Fuller bodied than expected with a nice balance of zesty spice, funky yeast, earthy hops, dark fruit and sweet malt. A touch of bitterness up front followed by peppery spice that lingers over a slight medicinal character into a dry finish. Hints of dark cherry with a nice malt backbone coutering the fruit/sweetness. Hints of caramel malt and biscuit toward the finish. Compl and much more flavorful than expected.

Flaske hos Ole Anders juni-13: mm, kveldens åttende og den første virkelige højdare. Bare godlyder rundt bordet. Kan fort bli et bedre menneske av dette. gripweed57 (2868) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 7, 2017
From old tasting notes. Hazy orange copper color. creamy beige head. Assertive yeasty toasted malt nose. Sweet fruity malt flavor is complex and spicy. Delicious and flavorful.
