Unde (947) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2014
Mahogany brown beer with a nice foamy head going to the sides of the glass. Aroma has red berries and dried fruits. Taste has chocolate, dried fruit and sweet caramel and syrup. Medium body with quite high carbonation.

Maroon in color with a small head and light lacing. Has a fruity aroma and taste (apricot?) and unfortunately a little metallic on the finish. Didn’t like it at first but it grew on me....a little.

33cl bottle at Draft & Craft, Amsterdam on 04-Dec-2015 Dark red brown in colour with a tan coloured head. Sweet malt and dark fruit aroma. Full body and soft\/medium carbonation. Just too sweet - like treacle. Heavy malt and fruit. Just not for me.

ZodiacM (934) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2014
Een heerlijk vol donkerbruin bier, zwaar, fris en zoet met een lichtbittere afdronk. Geur van mout en gedroogd fruit. Lekker!

Aggiebob (934) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAR 21, 2016
Bottle: Murky brown with a off-white head and lace. The aroma is caramel malt and spiciness. The flavors included spices, caramel, plum and raisins. It was well balanced with a strong sense of alcohol at the end.

maupie (926) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2003 This beer has a brown body - hue and a fine white scum collar with sweet initial flavor and a heavy body. I have drunk the beer from a bootle so it had a medium carbonic acid. Best christmas beer i have tasted.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 4, 2003
Gladly not an overactive belgian ale. Firm and steady carbonation. The nose is mainly spicy with a hint of orange marmalade and candi sugar. The finish is long and spicy (thyme).

Bottle 75cl BB end 2009
Surprisingly dusty aroma. Some fresh dark fruits comes through together with an undefined spicy character. Someone wrote about thyme, and I can agree with that. Sparkling palate almost as if they’ve used champagne yeast or something similar. Very rich spicy taste full of alcohol. Schnapps warning! Uncharacteristicly unsweet for beer of this strength and recent vintage. Makes me almost suspect a relabel of an old vintage... Ginger, thyme and other spices are present in the alcohol infested beverage. Hard to decide if this is a good one or OTT. After warming up a bit a distinctive worn leather taste appears and the sweetness develops a bit. A big Belgian beer in a big bottle that developes over time. Must be a good thing.
