JorisPPattyn (10118) - 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. Can’t help but like this beer.

[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

DrSilverworm (10000) - 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.

blipp (9906) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 25, 2010
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.

3.7
douglas88 (9797) - 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.

3.6
bb (9790) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Bottle. Mahogony-brown color with a nice off-white head. Roasted malt and slight grapefruit hop aroma. Nice balanced malt and hop flavors along with spice, caramel, fruit, and brancy. Lingering bitterness.
