This brew is delicious. It kinda reminds me of a mixture of brews. If you could imagine a mixture of say a dark Belgian strong ale like a Rochefort 10 and then mix it with a raisin based brew like Dogfish Heads Raison DEtre. Simply awesome. A Match made in heaven, dark fruit, molasses, brown sugar, maple sugar, a loaf of yeasty toasted bread, plum jam, and raisin jelly.

Ruikt naar zoet Belgisch, smaakt ook zo, maar wel op de goede manier. Kleur is erg donker.

wlajwl (6659) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 18, 2017
Aroma is spices/cinnamon, malts and Belgian yeast. The flavor is Belgian yeast, malts, dark malts and a very spicy/mildly funky/slightly sour finish.

alteregoo (1342) - Kalisz, POLAND - MAR 16, 2017
Piana obfita, nieco mydlana, szybko opada do firanki. Barwa rubinowa, delikatnie opalizująca. W aromacie faktycznie da się rozpoznać rozmaryn, ciemny mid, i rodzynki, do tego ciemne winogrona, melasa, dojrzałe czereśnie, karmel, zioła... W smaku słodkie, lekko szczypiące od wysokiego nagazowania i pikantnych przypraw, znw na pierwszym planie rozmaryn, kandyzowany cukier, ciemne owoce, figi i rodzynki. Goryczka całkiem solidna, migdałowa, w posmaku cała masa ził, cierpkich jagd, miodu spadziowego. Alkohol wyraźnie rozgrzewający, ale przyjemny. W odbiorze nie jest gęste czy oleiste, ale przypomina troszkę słodką nalewkę na ziołach.
To samo piwo w wersji bez rozmarynu skradło by moje serce. Nadal jest super, ale ziołowość pokroju piw świątecznych budzi skojarzenia raczej z czymś pomiędzy Gouden Carolus Christmas a St. Bernardus Christmas Ale i sprawia, że piwo staje się wymagające w degustacji.

Turtles (2509) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 3, 2017
750ml bottle from Systembolaget, vintage 2016. Dark brown with a dense tanned head, some lacing. Toasted malty aroma, sticky dried dark fruit, sherry, raisins and spices. Full-bodied, medium carbonated with small sharp bubbles that works well against the sweet and creamy mouthfeel. Spicy and herbal taste, sweet dried fruit, roasted malt, caramel, sherry, port, raisins, prunes, honey, peppery yeast, chocolate and licorice. Dry and warming finish. Several dimensions and very enjoyable.

ctipping (1840) - Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2017
750 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 7/4/2013. Deep ruby brown body with a big khaki head. Thin surface foam. Nose is very spicy. Rosemary is evident. Dark fruit. A little cinnamon. Brown sugar. Flavor has lots of caramel and brown sugar right up front, but it drops off quickly. Raisins and dark fruits. Spicy and dry. Rosemary is strong again. Cinnamon spice in the finish. Medium body, nicely dried out. Highly carbonated. Like a Christmas ale in its spice component. Kinda overpowers the beer.
