Bottle_Shop (2) - - AUG 31, 2012 does not count
Purchased from the Deca brewery. Beautifully dark colour which has clearly come from the barrels as it started as a lighter coloured beer. The BA isnt overpowering and the lovely taste of Tsjeeses still comes through but theres a warm and rewarding subtlety thats all about genius brewing. Those Sturdy brewers have done us proud.

Impressive. The flavor is delightful. The caramel malts taste great along with sweet spices (nutmeg), & nuts. I would even recommend this ale to Santa himself.

TheCametron (2421) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 22, 2012
Bottle at Craigs. Pours Amber with a white head. Aroma is sweet Toffee malt. Slighly more mellow that the original (which I actually prefer). Theres a well balanced candy sweetness with a degree of spice that works very well. A sweet, lovely finish. Its delicious.

Bottle, thanks Craig. Golden with a thin white head. Caramel and yeast ester aroma. Similar taste, esters and caramel. More mellow than the standard

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 21, 2012
In bottle. Pours a dark golden amber colour with a fair beige head. Aroma of spiced pumpkin, treacle, oak, bubblegum and alcohol. Flavour is a little vegetal with nutmeg, cloves, hazelnuts and black pepper. A dry finish and moderate carbonation. Hazelnuts and alcohol linger nicely.

Petite bouteille partage avec Patrick. Bire cuivre avec une mousse beige. Le nez offre des armes dpices de nol, de la fum, des cerises, une touche bois par les bretts. Ce nez semble tre de triple de nol, mais la bouche est poussireuse, sucre avec du caramel. Un drle de produit qui ne ma pas plus.

Une dgustation offerte par rodenbach99. Merci! Un liquide la robe ambre ou orange ou rougetre, cest selon. Une petite tte beige qui fait belle figure. Un nez tout aussi trange dans cette version vieillie. Beaucoup de choses qui ont la queue glissante: des fruits, des malts sucrs, de la terre et de la fume, des pices de Nol, du poivre et des odeurs qui provinnent du rgne vgtal, parfois incertaines mais toujours pntrantes et passablement agrables. Beaucoup de choses aussi qui accaparent les papilles. Une levure fruite et des malts roux avec ce murmure de fume et ce mlange non-identifiable dpices et daromates qui samusent constamment modifier lexcitation gustative de cette proposition. En bouche, un corps assez complet avec un apport de bulles convenable et une texture crmeuse. Une finale passablement malte avec des notes de fume et de cendre. Pour le moins une bire iconoclaste qui est sans doute intressante boire au moins une fois dans sa vie.

Damico (3145) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Pours amber and murky with a decent white head. The aroma brings sweet berry like grapes on the nose, from the oak maybe, really smooth without so much booze as I was expecting. The flavor brings some sweet, slightly syrupy grape/berry notes that settle pleasantly on the tongue, a bit too sweet almost but most enjoyed on my palate.

Gerbeer (3330) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2012
330 ml bottle. 2010 vintage. Pours a deep orange/brown with full head that dissipates but does not go away. Aromas of ripe fruit and toffee plus a bit of smoke. Rich and complex. Flavors of roasted malts, caramel, caraway, and hints of wood/vanilla. Dry finish. Very nice.

PhillyCraft (6451) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Bottle, faced. Pours a murky caramel color with clearish lacing, and clear bubbles even present in the body of the beer, dont see that too often. Aromas of peach, rust, brown sugar, spicy yeast, earthy hop resins. Taste is spicy yeast, apricots, belgian candy sugar, subtle wood notes. 10 percent hidden exceptionally well. Unique tripel that finished slightly vinous and sweet with some oaky caramel aftertaste. Warmer the better for this brew. Amazing.
