Habanero (4374) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2008
Bottled. Pours dark brown with a finely textured fluffy tan head about an inch in height. Excellent lacing. Nose of dark fruit and burned malt. Full bodied with subtile flavors from the spices. The spices dont overpower this beer but add subtle nuances instead. Slighty citric bitterness and date like flavour. Nicely nbalanced. A very enjoyable brew.

wicked aroma of dark ripe fruit, lorads of plums, figs, apples, and a really nice licorice anise aroma also. Great malt in the flavor, and more of the nice fruity notes. Finished smooth, and sweet, great after diner beer.

garrison (812) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - OCT 30, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2008 Purchased for me by my loving girlfriend Nancy at ’Jungle Jims World Market’ in Fairfield (a suburb of Cincinnati), Ohio - This one pours a VERY dark brown brew with a light tan head of foam and a complex anise(liquorice)-fruit aroma. Tastewise, tis is a complex mingling of fruit and malts, with subtle hops over-and-undertones. This IS a great beer!

Stefano (1986) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2012 Dark brown with fine white lasting head. Aroma of caramel malts, toffee, citrus, and some spices. Sweet malty nutty flavor with some hints of dark fruits. Malty finish with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Cold winter night beer.

trevor211 (1651) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 22, 2008
This one came across as an Abt. / Quad brewed with grape juice - like part dark Belgian beer, part wine. It has the dark brown color and great head of something like SB Abt. 12, is slightly more carbonated, and has the same flavor profile - dark fruits and spices. It definitely has grape juice notes, though - something I actually found to my liking. Great stuff, more of a dessert beer, though.

One of my favorites from the belgian beer tasting in Boston 9/27/08. Wonderful fruit and caramel in perfect balance, with delicious coriander notes. Exemplifies why this is one of the best styles in my mind.

heemer77 (5317) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - SEP 23, 2008
A light brown head with a deep brown body that shows garnet when held ot light. The aroma has some sweet pears and cinnamon. There is an interesting bit of earthy yogurt that is the base of the other smells. The taste has some sweet cola and plums. There is also some brown sugar molasses goodness, especially in the finish. The body is highly carbonated. A nice brew.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Sebletitje. Pours dark brown with a large tan head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of tart cherries, sweet malt, and yeast. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness and smooth alcohol. Very good.

after4ever (7719) - Brier, Washington, USA - SEP 19, 2008
330. Pours a deep grainy, nearly opaque ebony with a thick, surging, moussy tan head. Nice mild molasses and caramel nose, some licorice too. Very fruity and spicy. Sweet. Creamy medium body, very soft carb. Easy to drink, hides the alcohol well. Mid-palate doesn’t show much distinction, just the usual suspects from the nose coming around again. Bit thin. Neutral-ish finish. Nice and likable, but not going to knock you out and drag you home.
