Ljunkan (530) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2008
75 cl bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a nice foamy head leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma is spicey, yeasty, a bit of sugar, toffee and dried fruits. Flavour is sweet malt with notes of toffee and that typical belgian yeast. Spices, some warming alcohol. Medium to fullbodied, high carbonation. It is quite drinkable even though the alcohol is noticable. It probably needs a year to reach its full capacity.

Meatmallet (126) - Salem, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Deep reddish brown with a huge tan head that left a thick ring of lace up and down the glass.Smells very light on the nose. Rasins and dates with a light alcohol smell.Thick and slick in the mouth with a great alcohol at the end. Spice and yeast with dark fruit flavors give it a complex flavor.High carbonation and a great alcohol burn make this a great beer for the style.
