poisoneddwarf (2483) - Coeur d Alene, Idaho, USA - JAN 10, 2014
750 ml bottle. Aroma consists of chocolate, dark fruit (plums, raisins), soy sauce, alcohol. Pours opaque muddy brown with a large tan head with excellent retention; leaves lace. Taste is sweet and savory, sour and meaty, oxidation, soy sauce. Heavy body crushing my tongue, velvety mouthfeel. Not my cup of tea right now, but a quality product.

fantti (999) - FINLAND - JAN 5, 2014
Pikkupullo reitattu. Kaatuu tulppaaniin tummanruskeana/mustana vaahdon ollessa pari sormen paksuinen, melko hitaasti katoava ja vahvaa pitsi jttv. Haju poikkeaa melko lailla muista pukin pikku apureista. Siit lytyy IS:mist paahteisuutta, maamaisuutta ja savuisuutta, jotka peittvt lhes kaiken muun. Kauan saa pyritell ennen kuin lytyy mys marjaviinimisyytt ja liev mausteisuutta, mutta belgialen kuivattu hedelm loistaa poissaolollaan. Maussa jatkuu paahteisuus, mutta nyt mausteisuus (neilikkaa ja kaardemummaa ainakin) on vahvempana. Mys marjaisuutta on joukossa, sek suklaata, mutta ei aivan perinteinen vahva belgi ole kyseess. Viinikumiakin saattaa tuntua. Suutuntuma on melko tytelinen ja hieman alkoholinen. Alkoholisuus ei ole pelkk lmmittvyytt, vaan siin on hieman pistv viinaisuuttakin joukossa, muttei toki hiritsevsti. Hiilihappojakin tuntuu olevan ja humalointiakin on jonkin verran jljell. Erilainen vahva belgi, josta ei oikein saa mistn kiinni. Olipa kyll erikoinen kokemus ja voisi jopa sanoa pieneksi pettymykseksi. Ikntymisen vaikutusta on mahdoton sanoa, kun tuoretta ei ole tullut maistettua.

TET (2937) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JAN 3, 2014
750mL bottle, over a year old. Almost black beer with a hansom, big and brown head. The nose is roasted, some salt liquirice and dark dried fruits, plums, spices, hint of overcooked bananas and warm of alcohol. Quite complex and succesfully aroma. Taste of salt liquirice, dark fruits and some cellar. Clearly spicy taste and they are quite strong but smooth and balanced. Only medium bodied, low and smooth carbonation. Quite a mess but still it works at some level.

stefannilssons (1580) - SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2014
Jag kan inte skaka av mig knslan att den har legat av sig lite, men det r i och fr sig svrt fr mig att avgra eftersom jag inte drack den nr den kom. I vilket fall s var det hr gott med toner av choklad, honung och belgisk jstkultur. Kroppen satt dr den skulle och det gjorde ven balansen.

Inbreak (5363) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 28.12.2013, 0,75l bottle @ home:
Big brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly dry and boozy, oak, spices, grass, dark malts, cocoa, burnt coffee. Taste is slightly dry boozy, dark malts, oak, alcohol, spices, grass, chocolate, dark sugar. Longlasting mild bitterness. Fair enough.

andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2013
Pours a cloudy dark brown with an average creamy brown head. Aroma is rich maltiness, dark fruity esters(raisins, plums, and cherries are most prominent), some mildy spicy phenols, caramel, alcohol, and a bit perfumey. Taste is chocolate, roasted malts, dark dried fruits (raisins, prunes, plums.), warming alcohol, caramel, and dark candy sugar.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2013
Pours an almost opaque dark brown with a frothy brown head and good lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, dark dried fruits, chocolate, caramel and candi sugar. Taste is dark dried fruits(plums, dates and figs), alcohol, caramel, caramelized sugar and a light bit of sugar. Finish had a warm alcohol finish with a good hop bite... Excellent Belgian dark strong and wicked Christmas dinner beer.
