ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, - MAY 15, 2009
Cloudy orange colour with a white head. malty, spicy aroma with yeast and alcohol sweet notes, some pepper and oak hints. Malty, fruity and spicy flavor with notes of oak. Light dry yeasty finish.

geolgau (468) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - NOV 19, 2017
Aroma: pretty complex and liquor-ish, with sweet marmalade, dried fruits, alcohol spiciness, subtle oak and candied sugar. Taste is nice as well, sweet and potent with typical belgian flavors like raisins, figs, dates, oak, light peppery notes, alcohol heat. Feels like winter: boozy, warm and spiced. Nice seasonal.

vinivini (3009) - Gomel, BELARUS - NOV 14, 2017
Bottle 2016. Hazy amber pour. Small off-white head. Aroma: highly vinous, big dried fruit, caramel, nectar, some fruity hops. Full-bodied. Medium sweet taste. Complex malts, rich dried fruit, nectar, reminds of a barley wine at some points. Low bitterness. Delicious.

SimonBlok (765) - GRONINGEN, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2017
33cl bottle at home. Appearance: copper brown with big, egg-shell white head. Aroma: caramel, dried apricots, some bourbon. Taste: high sweetness, medium bitterness and slightly acidic. Notes of caramel, raisins, sweet spices, dried fruits, trace of banana, tannins and a hint of bourbon. Palate: medium bodied, oily texture and medium carbonation. Pretty sweet and not very complex

ironcontra (451) - ATL, Georgia, USA - SEP 14, 2017
So much alco afterbite, kinda ruins it for me :/ Other than that, figs, caramel, apple, slightly sticky / syrupy, OK but not one of their classix

ardeo (545) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2017
33 cl de chez Beer-lovers shop de Luik (Belgium). Couleur orange/rose avec petite mousse retombante. Nez sur les fruits (divers : orange, prune, raisin etc.), le bourbon et le caramel. Bouche effervescente avec du sucre candi, du caramel, du fruit, des spices, de l'alcool et une amertume finale certaine. Bien rafraichissante malgré (?) le sucre et l'alcool et une beer que je vais retenir !

mariojbra (17) - 60810160, BRAZIL - AUG 14, 2017
Liquido denso, acobreado, opaco. Aroma frutado e gosto adocicado inicialmente que evolui na boca para uma sensação mais equilibrada, tornando quase imperceptivel o doce e alcool no retrogosto. Mais uma excelente struise.
