Really awsome beer. I would say a pure taste beer. No food, no exageration, just degustation. I really liked that one. Fall beer (as in the season not the action lol)

its quite good. The Alcohol actually hits you hard at first, caramel and slight cereal makes this good. the malts is nice and hops are little in presence. The rest of the beer is a pleasant expirence. nick76 (4402) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2007
The aroma is very grainy with hops, spice, and fruity yeast. The appearance is amber with a HUGE head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall it’s a nice beer but not one that you should go out of your way to get. kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - OCT 29, 2007
Pours a dark reddish brown with thin off-white head that lingered thru mid-glass and left okay lacing. Nose was a pleasant, though subdued, malty dark fruit, mixed with carmel. Mouthfeel was sweet and slightly tingly, and the flavor followed the nose.
Initial palate was stale and metallic, but this improved dramatically as the beer warmed. If I have this again, I’ll make sure to let it warm before drinking. An interesting beer. 17thfloor (2444) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Dark amber/brown pour with small tan head. Dusty, yeast aroma. Dry and big. Very complex, roasted malt, carmal, and some unexpected sweet/woody flavor. Some bite in the body. Interestingly different.

Subtle blend of caramel, tart cherries, and some spices, this is far too easy to drink. That 8.5% is completely hidden, making it even more dangerous. Not the most intricate beer in the world, but well crafted and extremely enjoyable. b33r (881) - Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2007
Dark translucent orange color with large off-white head and some lacing. Aroma was very weak with light malts. Flavor had light fruit and malt flavors, some caramel and spices. It did taste a little oxidized, I’m not sure how old the bottle was, but I think it would have been more flavorful if fresh. thewolf (12803) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2007
Bottle. [thank you for bringing this from France, sysadm]reakt (951) - 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.
