EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Nice, dark carmel color with tan head. Lot’s of banana and malt aroma. Very engaging flavor. Sweets malt and dry hops. Simple, but full and smooth. Has series overtones of rootbeer and old time ginger flavor hard candy.

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 21, 2009
Pours a hazy reddish brown with a nice tan coloured head. Aroma is of plums, raisins, citrus (specificially oranges) bubble gum, fruit punch, spice, yeast, and a little chocolate. Tastes very bright and fresh for a dunkle beer. Tastes like plums, oranges and fruit punch with spices. The best part of this beer is the fantastic mouthfeel. Fantastic beer!

DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Bottle. Fruity aroma. Beautiful reddish brown body with large beige head. Flavor is mild, fruity, malt. Finish is somewhat sweet. A pleasant but not overly remarkable beer.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2009
Enjoyable, no longer remarkable. A Belgian strong with a hint of orange peel and some sweet spicing. I really do want more intensity and more complexity in a strong beer, not just a quick alcohol slam.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 11, 2009
On tap at Tyler’s. Brown mostly clear pour with off white small head. Sweet malts, dark fruit notes, brown sugar, and maybe a hint of cinnamon. Sweet but complex. Very drinkable and quite good.

Very sweet, rich, caramel and brown sugar, dark fruits. Extremely spicy as well. A bit over the top, really, though reasonably nice.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 28, 2009
Dark brown in colour with a long lasting beige head, excellent lacing. The aroma is vinous, malty, some plums, apples and spices. The flavour is spicy, noticeable alcohol, very plummy, some bubblegum, yeast, light citrus. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes long, warming and fruity.

The plums really come out more as this warms up but so does the alcohol. This is good but at this points its not getting any better.

750ml bottle obtained in a trade with TheCheeseMan, thanks Dan.
Opened on June 14, 2008.
Vintage 2003.

Bottle, 2007 vintage. Aroma is of cinnamon, gingerbread and dark fruits. Flavors are malty, with a little more ginger snap cookie. The alcohol is hidden very well. Good Christmas strong ale.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2009
Bottle, Rainhall Drinks Co, Barnoldswixk. Poured a good lookin’ dark ruby colour with a lively foamy beige head. Aroma was fruity with spice/herb notes. Interesting flavour with more different spices, caramel malt, thyme, curacao, licorice and quite a boozy kick. Pretty full bodied and creamy mouthfeel. Warming finish. An enjoyable one to share.
