1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 20, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2011 2004 bottle via Kevin. Pours to a beige bubbly creamy head atop a deep woody brown. Nice lacing. The aroma is mildly malty and figgy with a Belgian yeastiness and is woody-ish. Definite Curaҫao apparent in the aroma as well. Spicy with Curaҫao. Light Belgian yeastiness. Creamy and medium-full bodied. No discernable alcohol except a light warming of the gullet. 8, 4, 7, 4, 16 = 3.9; Tap 2011. Pours to a murky brown body with a white head and awesome lacing. Aroma is dry chocolate and toasted malt. Flavor is kind of like a scotch ale with light spices and apple. Sweet and metallic. The beer was very metallic up front but mellowed as I let it sit. Lingering on the palate. Medium body. 6, 4, 7, 3, 12 = 3.2

Medium body, olieachtig, prikkelig en actief mondgevoel, afdronk is zoet, kruidig en warm.

Drank with Bram before watching Narcos s02e01 3-3-17. Ordinary beer. Mainly alcohol and sweetness. Also typical ’spijs’ taste that you find in christmas beer.

madnorwegian (200) - FRANCE - FEB 10, 2017
Very "N’ICE" beer. Very unique complex aromas. Both deep over-ripe fruit with woodsie forest and fresh tropicalness at the same time. Flavors just as complex and with similar notes. Tastes like a beautifully done dessert. Only downside: not enough head.
