wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2010
{thoughts} Exotically aromatic, dark, Belgian ale; well-attenuated given the immenseness; direct Belgian malt flavor and slight warm alcohol attest to the strength.

{elements} Deep cola brown-red hue; dissipating khaki head. The aroma is diversely filled with cherries and licorice, followed by ginger, lemon grass and white pepper. Moderately sweet, moderately acidic (clean like phosphoric), moderately bitter; strong, malty, candy-like flavors backed by spicy notes of cola. Creamy texture, high and silky carbonation, medium body, moderate menthol / alcohol aftertaste. 33 cl bottle @ GP Tuulensuu, best before 13.01.13.

JulienHuxley (5806) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2010
4 oz pour at mondial. Very dark brown with a thick creamy brown head. Aroma of molasses, figs and alcohol. Taste is very sweet, but not sickeningly so, surprising balance with the alcohol. Palate is silky and well carbonated, another belgian success in combining heavy beers and great drinkability. An underrated malt bomb in my opinion, not into this style particularly but this is very well done.

Mjollnir (404) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 13, 2010
330mL bottle. Pours translucent dark red with a thin persistent off-white head. Citrusy and grassy hop aromas, acidic and fruity with a bit of yeast and malt evident. Sickly sweet with a little fruit, bitterness and acidity. Medium-full bodied, lively carbonation and quite syrupy without much going on in the finish.

dylan88 (223) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2010
Fine nose with tones of caramel, cinnamon, milk chocolate and sweet yoghurt after a little time in the glass; It has a medium body (I expected more), with a bitter sweetness to it. It lacks a hole lot of depth and complexity to be a really good beer; The finish is medium in body, not very long and too bitter.

daleharshman (1064) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 30, 2010
11.2 ounce bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar ($4.79). Pours a dark brown with red highlights and three fingers of tan foam. Aroma of yeast, butter, sweet caramel, candied dark fruit, hints of brown sugar and light spice. Rich flavor of toffee and caramel, chocolate, spice, some fruity notes (raisin). Somehow this is not overly sweet. Great carbonation with a smooth and dry finish. The quite high ABV is very nicely concealed. Really great stuff. (388, 329)

teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - JUN 29, 2010
33cl bottle. Pours a cloudy dark ruby color with a beige fizzy medium head. Short lasting and not lacing foam. Nose is lighter than expected with bready yeast and almonds. Taste is similar with cloves and bread notes. Some brown sugar hints too. As is warms the booziness comes out too much IMO. Palate is medium with little carb. Finishes with plenty of sour apple skins, mild warmth, and lots of sweet sugary notes. Overall, not that good due the overpowered alcohol and the almost total lack of complexity.

bjt512 (292) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUN 26, 2010
Amazing vanilla, honey, and brown bread, all warmed by a high abv and blended to a silky smooth texture. One of the finest ales I have had in quite some time.

At a tasting, Thanks Dror, pours red to brown with some floaties and a cream color head, aroma of raisins, plums, cherries, wood and alcohol, flavor is rather sweet with plums, vanilla, honey, malt and light bitterness, spicy finish (liqurice and cinnamon), medium to full body. Nice
