3fourths (9345) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 750ml bottle. Dark dark brown. Huge nose of heavy quad clove and plum and brown sugar yeast with a dose of alcohol thrown in the mix as well. Flavor up front is smoke, some sweet fruity char and then some blackberry and wood, sweet on the back but not overly sweet, and finishing with a hit of alcohol. The blackberry and black cherry fruit note is probably the nicest feature of this beer. fiulijn (20493) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2007
Draught at Lord Nelson, Copenhagen, 6-3-7-3-13=32gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2008
Black color with brown hue. Good body structure, well mixed flavors, but nothing exceptional, some
caramel, light chocolate, very light roasted malt…
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Courtesy hopscotch. Pours black, with a tan creamy head, and nice sheets of lacing. Some candy sugar and clove in the nose. Lots of spices. Candy corn flavor, with some slight tartness. Caramel, banana also present. Soft medium body. Drinkable despite ABV. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 2, 2009
750mL bottle. Poured a highly-viscous, murky deep brown with very little carbonation evident. The aroma picked up a base of molasses, dark chocolate, and black patent maltage surrounded by spicy, fruity, Belgian-inspired yeast and darker spices.. a bit of soy impression on the back.. a touch brash at first, but it came together when given a chance to breathe. The flavor found soy and licorice at the core with dried cocoa and sticky black patent sweetness around.. warm spices and tart fruity character around.. a touch of oxidation hit on the back. Medium-plus bodied with very low carbonation.. tart and spicy notes accented decently, but it wasn’t all that enjoyable. Sammy (12204) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2010
Jason’s bottle, aged what 3 years or so? Black, with little head. An anoying sourness with chocolate and roasted barley. Aroma is big chocolate. Average mouthfeel overall. A sipper.

750ml bottle cellared for about 7 months. Dark brown pour, nearly opaque in the glass with a medium head. Nice Lace. Bragesnak (5394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2008
Aroma was a mix of chocolate, roasted malts, yeast, prunes and peppery spices. Alcohol is well covered. Medium-thin body. Spicy aftertaste. This one might give you heartburn if you drink too much in a sitting.
Brown with small head. Aroma of caramel and spices. Flavor of sweet malt, dried fruit and a tone of alcohol. gnoff (10336) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - DEC 8, 2007
