3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet, belgish aroma with citrus fruits, oranges and maybe mango and pineapple. Some sweet chocolate also. Sweet, fruity, a bit belgish and bw-alike malty taste. Palate is quite smooth and warming.
Bottle courtesy of fonefan. Thanks Jan! Hazy very dark brown with a tiny off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, roasted malt, oxidated, caramel and dried fruit. Flavor is quite sweet and moderate bitter. Sweet and moderate bitter finish. Clearly past it's prime, but that was to be expected.

Backlog, Bottle from Canals Mt Ephraim, pours a deep amber brown with a medium sized head. Notes of clove, nutmeg, christmas tree, pine, barley, coffee or chocolate. A bit boozy in the finish but nice on a colder night weark (885) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - MAY 21, 2016

Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen, thanks to Anders Svensson. Opaque black beer with a nice beige head. Malty caramel aroma, raisins, figs, dades, some bread. Malty fruity flavor, grapes, caramel, banana, figs, raisins, plums, some warming alcohol. Aged with dignity. Sammy (12760) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2015
Careful ageing but still not richer but poorer. Still above average mouthfeel but cocoa and sweetness dominates and not so drinkable.

750 ml bottle. BB 06/10/15. Bought some years ago...
Dark brown colour with almost no head.
Malt, sweetness, manure and alcohol in the aroma.
The flavour is spices, sweet malt and alcohol.
Totally flat. Not very nice. This hasn't been aging so well. Compared to 2010 vintage this bad... The flatness makes this unpleasant.

another nice year for this spicy decadent treat. As with most years, its warming without being hot and the right mix of yeasty and roasted malts. Very good. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 25, 2014
bottle, waited on this much too long. cloudy amber brown pour, caramel malts, holiday spice. decent but im positive this way better a couple years ago stouby (4779) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle at No5. Hazy brown with sediments. Aroma heavy malty (dark fruits). Flavor heavy sweet, a bit yearthy notes. Almost full body. Spices and cocoa has disappeared. driflin (23) - DENMARK - JUL 24, 2013
An absolutely fantastic beer. One of my all-time favorites. I imagine they serve this in heaven!
