JorisPPattyn (9672) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 20, 2003
Dark brown with yellowish shine. Full brownish head, lasting and lacey. Dark chocolate nose, sweet, fruity too (ripe plums, succade). Taste is very bitter, hops and bitter chocolate. Deep. Very full bodied, much more than expected from 6.5 ABV. Very long lasting aftertaste; bitter chocolate gets streamlined with the malt to a beautiful finish. Cant help but like this beer.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Sample from a bottle at Cincinnati Winter Beer Fest (CWBF) 2013. Last one of the night. Kind of rushed this one, a drunk friend had just spilled beer on my notebook and I was writing around the wet spots. Clear brown. Decent khaki head. Spice, toasted malts. Smooth, ligther carbonation. More dry texture. Moderate spice. Solid spice ale. Light bitter. Light sweet.

marcus (9561) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 3, 2006
This brown ale poured with a slight tan head, eliciting a malty aroma. The initial flavor is spicy, almost medicine-tasting, with a bitter hoppy finish. A very unique, but slightly unpleasant brew.

arminjewell (9423) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Pour out of 12 oz bottle dark blackish red pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, roast malts, some slight biscuit, bread, dark fruits, caramelized sugars, nice spice with clove, slight cinnamon as well, slight earthy and spicy hops as well. Taste is spicy up front with cinnamon, clove, some cherry juice and dark raisin go into dark toffee, caramelizes sugars, dark fruits with a hint of earth, finishing fairly bitter and dry. Pretty nice, like the way this was crafted.

Light brown beer with a thick tan head. Malty aroma, minty and herbal. Some spruce aroma and cherry fruitiness. Flavour is very nice, malty sweetness, caramel, orange peel, and spicy hop flavour. Moderately bitter finish. Nicely warming.

3fourths (9280) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2013 Clear dark amber with a light tan head. Rich toffeed plum juice, some burnt caramel and wet oak. Divine chewiness, robustness and a touch of roast, amazing all around, warming, relaxing, satisfying.

douglas88 (8674) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 15, 2008
Bottle bought at the Utah State Wine Store. Pours a brown, almost purple color with a small white head. The aroma is light; some floral hops and light nuts and plum. The taste is quite hoppy; also some rich caramel malts, some prunes and other dark fruit and a light pine flavor. Some bitterness in the finish. Wow, this is 7%, I had no idea since it is very smooth. Some spices and a bit of brown sugar also. A very nice beer that as got me thinking about winter, well it did snow last weekend already.

mabel (8640) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2011
[3665-20110403] 12floz bottle. Mildly floral grains aroma has a little wet malt thing going on. Slightly hazy, dark amber brown body with a medium-lasting foamy light tan head. Grainy wet malt flavour is a little harsh. Medium body. Interesting to sample but would not want a pint. (5/3/6/3/11+) 2.9

Bottle. Pours brown with an off white head. The aroma is grainy malty, with light toasty notes and some hoppy hints. The flavor is well balanced, with crackery pale malts, light toasty malt notes, and some floral-ish hoppy notes. Solid.
