EHouse (170) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Pours a deep ebony with a finger of java head. Aromas of sweet aspartame, caramel, figs, rosemary,alcohol, and a hint of thyme. Big mother of a body that is syrupy sweet, with flavors of black licorice, rosemary, black pepper, and caramelized honey. This is a fantastic food beer but on its own it severely surpasses a sipping beer. Its a bit thick, syrupy, sweet, and the alcohol keeps your tongue tingly. However, pour this into some sugar and caramelized onions or pair it with some intense smoked meat (lamb!) or a seriously sharp aged gouda or blue cheese.

ctipping (1675) - 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.

Hopmaestro (1504) - rebro, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2017
Aroma is sweet with sugar and fudge taking the lead. Theres quite a lot of spice action going on as well. Taste is is darker sweeter malts, christmas beer tones, winter spices and dark fruits. I catch a dry wooden note as well. Light alcohol in the end. Finely crafted, but it really doesnt do it for me - at least not to that extent that I go crazy, strip down naked and run into the woods. I enjoyed it though.

pjotrapostou (84) - POLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Piękna, ciemna piana, szybko opada. W zapachu przyprawy, bardzo delikatnie wyczuwalne suszone owoce, anyż. W smaku więcej typowo quadruplowych przypraw i sporo słodkiego karmelu. Spore wysycenie, alkohol wyczuwalny. Dobre.

Classic ale aroma, nothing special. Dark color with low carrbonation. Alcohol present in the taste. Dark quadrupel with a caramel hint. Nice.

mice (892) - FINLAND - JAN 28, 2017
Clear, deep dark red and brown beer with medium but quickly vanishing head. Aroma has alcohol, dreid fruits, mostly plum and raisins. Also some berries, licorice and vanilla can be found. Taste has dried fruits, mostly plum, and also lots of spices, malts and warm alcohol. Some port wine feeling. Quite full body with lots of carbonation. Refreshing and easy to drink, however.

Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, dried fruit, dark fruit, liquorice, chocolate and roasted malts.

Opaque ruby/dark brown beer with a slight/medium beige/brown head.

Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, dried fruit, dark fruit, liquorice and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts.

This beer is intense, complex and balanced. What an immense flavour that manages to excel at everything. Insane mix of fruit, chocolate and roasted malts. The appearance is just as great too. The aroma could have been stronger, but that is about it.
