330ml bottle I’ve had in the cupboard a couple of years. Big gusher! Pours a very hazy, murky brown with thin film of off white bubbles. Aroma is caramel, toffee, nuts, fruit cake and dark fruits - dates etc. Very smooth texture, alcohol is completely covered. Rather sweet but that isnt an issue for me. Dark fruits and Christmas pudding. sjogro (4263) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2015
Tasting at my place. Bottle shared by Maakun. We have a gusher! Amber with medium head. Cognac, apfelkorn, barleywine/glue-ish and the sweetness of banana sugar candy. Very sweet with big alcoholic finish. Backlog from 2015/01/09.

Aspetto tra l’ambrato e il mogano, abbastanza torbido; la schiuma è compatta, cremosa, di color beige e di ottima ritenzione. Il naso è fesco e speziato, caratterizzato da notevole dolcezza. Troviamo bei profumi d’arancia, note di pan di zenzero, un rivestimento di caramello, mela rossa, uva passa, prugne. Il palato è corposo e molto cremoso, abboccata. Carbonazione media, gusto decisamente dolce; caramello subito in azione, accompagnato da frutta candita. Piacevoli note speziate e di frutta scura (prugne, ribes), finale lievemente erbaceo, relativamente asciutto. MiP (15920) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2015
Bottle, 12.0%. Mild bready aroma, hint of peppery alcohol. Hazy dark amber colour. Small stable tan head. The flavour starts off very sweet, even sugary. Has a little spicy malt notes and some alcohol. It has the same good breadiness as Westvleteren 12. A great beer but it is very sweet and, I must say, too sweet for me.

Bottle. Pours hazy copper brown with airy but stable beige head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel, fruit and yeast, with subtle, hoppy touches. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, with notes of fruit, touches of raisins and yeast and hints of hops. Lingering, sweetish aftertaste with nutty notes. Warming alcohol presence. The closest to Westvleteren XII I have tasted, just sweeter. Yummy. Oh, how I wish I was in the beautiful nowhere of rural Flanders again... Bierridder_S (974) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2015

Bottle from Kris Wines. Hazy copper, offwhite head. Sweet raisins and nutty aromas. On the sweet side, but with lots of fruity complexity. Nice.
