Bottle. [thank you for bringing this from France, sysadm]reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2007
Pours a deep orange with a big, bubbly off white head with a slight yellow hue. Aroma is mild, some caramel, some roasted, some herbs and spices. Medium carbonation. Flavour is spicy peppery at first, then caramel sweetness and a spicy and oaky dryness at the end. Not really vinious despite the high ABV.
Bottle @ Quinns. Brandy coloured with a malty off white head. Roasted malt nose. Taste of malt, nuts and caramel. Simple, but pleasant and drinkable. RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 19, 2007
Pours a clouded ruby brown with minimal tan head. Nose is sugary, cherry, with a touch of wood. Flavor is smooth with a tuch of wood somewhere in there and a slight bit of caramelized sugar. Feel is great. Nice effervescence and bubbly on the tongue. Drinkable, yes. Quite good and worth going to...maybe worth going to again. afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2007
Bottle. Pous a clear amber with a large long lasting off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, yeast, and biscuit malt. Taste is the same as aroma with a hint of pepper. Medium mouthfeel that finishes dry with a high amount of carbonation and mild biterness. Very good. gripweed57 (2314) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 17, 2007
11.2 oz. bottle. Hazy orange color with a creamy white head. Faint toasted malt aroma. Dryish, bittersweet malt flavor with a moderate dry, peppery finish. Noticeable alcohol prescence. Average for it’s style.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Bottle. Amber brown pour, with a ton of head (overflowed out of my Unibroue tulip, actually). Fruity aromas: raisin, apple, pear. Flavor is sweet, with some caramel notes and malts. Smooth and velvet-like on the palate. Recommended. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Pours a cloudy, warm, dark, orangey golden with a tall, dense and lasting off-white head leaving quite some lacework. Lightly fusty aroma. Quite a full body, sweetish caramel, notes of wood and apple/calvados, sherry and earth. Very complex and very lovely. 180807 kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

hazy light amber, fine creamy white head, sweet biscuit malt flavor with some nice toasted, light bitter finish
Aroma: 5/10; Appearance: 6/10; Flavor: 6/10; Palate: 5/10; Overall: 11/20
Pours a brownish, amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of sweet malts, dark fruit, almost a slight hint of tartness, caramel, and toffee. Light on the palate with flavors of raisons, plums, caramel, and toffee to begin. Finishes with a little alcohol warming that wasn’t present on the nose. Also has a slight candied sugar flavor on the finish. I’m rather impressed with the flavors of this beer but dissapointed in the aroma. yespr (44810) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy brown to orange with huge off-white head. Slight sour/apple nose at first and goes more into a malty and fruity notes. Sweet and slight caramel flavour. Cane sugar and alcohol warming finish. Very nice.
