SB (334) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2006
Draft @ Sharpedge Creekhouse. Dark brown pour. Fluffy off-white head. Nice lacing on glass. Aroma was of caramel, spices, and malt. Not overpowering, not to faint either. Flavor was bready, and sweet, caramel, and spices, oaky and slight hints of vanilla. As it warmed the alcohol came through, but not to much and yeast came through. Chewy mouthfeel. Finish was a little dry. Overall I enjoyed the brew.

This beer wasnt half bad aroma is spicy with some sweetness mixed with the twinge of alcohol. The pour is brown with a tan head. Taste is interesting with many flavors of caramel a bit of fruit some yeasty flavor and the alcohol at the end. Good brew but not sure if I would buy it again.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2006
Dark brown colored, slight red hints. Medium sized beige head. Aroma is good with caramel, spices, chocolate and licorice, mild alcohol with sweetness there also. Even some smoky tones come up. Medium bodied. Flavor is almost as good as aroma: sweet caramel with spices, licorice and yeast, alcohol comes up maybe too much.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - OCT 3, 2006
Bottel. Had it with NY style pizza. A bit light on the body. Pours with a golden to copper color and a huge head. Aromas are of a usual Belgian with dough and yeast and hints of spices. Flavors more of the same with a pronounced alcoholic finish.

33CL stubby bottle. Clear mahogany with a huge, rocky, tan head. Nose is earthy, yeasty, some toasty malt. Flavor is roasty caramel, a touch of peppery hop. Dry peppery finish. Nice.

decaturstevo (6068) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 24, 2006
On tap at the Fox and Hound in Baton Rouge. A dark brown pour with a hint of gold when held up to the light. A slight but lasting off white head. An aroma of toasted malt and alcohol. A flavor of caramelly maltiness and a strong alcohol. A smooth even bodied palate that has very good carbonation. A pretty hot. The palate becomes a little watery as it warms. A tad of bitter as it warms as well (good).

gws57 (1275) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2006
Found this one bottled in Belvidere, Illinois. Dark brown pour with a light tan head, very alcoholic throughout, nose of peanuts and coffee, finished clean but medicinal. Dissapointing.
