Pours a dark amber color with a nice cream head. Aroma of roasted malts, fruity, caramels and spices. Flavors of roasted malts, dry dark fruits like raisins, some orange zest, a hint of liquorice and chocolate, a spices. Good carbonation, a little sweet and more bitter dry finish. Some complexity, very nice balance of flavors, a nice full flavored brew.

Cloudy brown pour with a medium, offwhite head. Pleasant aroma of spices, fruits and yeast. Good flavor of spices, fruits and yeast. The body is light to medium with a slightly liquorous texture and soft carbonation. Good stuff. Pinball (12153) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2009
cloudy brown, small fluffy light brown head.
sweet caramel, tofee, faint dark fruits, alcohol in the aroma, perhaps also faint orange peel.
flavor is sweet, hard caramel, only very faint dark fruits. flavor is actually very good, a clean caramelly profile, without being too sweet or cloying. some bitterness to balance, but not taking my attention away from the nice home-made-hard-caramel sort of flavor. the faind dark fruity raisiny flavor rounds up the beer nicely. leaparsons (10546) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2009

Aroma:yeast and malt...
Appearance:light hazy clear brown,good lacing head...
Flavor:grain,alcohol,light dark fruit flavor.... Boutip (6380) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 5, 2009
Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty brown color ale with a medium size foamy head with great retention and good lacing. Aroma of spicy yeast and medium sweet Belgian malt with unrefined grain ester. Taste is a weird mix between some sweet malt and unrefined stale grain notes with a spicy and as well bready yeast completing the mix. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no signs of alcohol. Not bad though mix of flavor is somewhat strange and not completely balanced.
