leghorn99 (254) - roma, ITALY - OCT 16, 2015
Aspetto tra lambrato e il mogano, abbastanza torbido; la schiuma compatta, cremosa, di color beige e di ottima ritenzione. Il naso fesco e speziato, caratterizzato da notevole dolcezza. Troviamo bei profumi darancia, note di pan di zenzero, un rivestimento di caramello, mela rossa, uva passa, prugne. Il palato 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 (15454) - Snderborg, 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.

Bamsen78 (5273) - Snderborg, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2015
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...

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

spacecube (1646) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2015
330ml bottle, pours red, small off white head. Aroma is golden apple tang, cherries, carrot cake, toffee, blackcurrant, medium malty, light hop bitterness, almond and nutty notes, resiny. Body is medium full, texture is oily and syrupy, sweet with little hop bitterness. The flavours carry this. Drinks very smoothly, alcohol is blended very well. A complex and tasty brew.

Melnis (505) - LATVIA - JUL 31, 2015
Grandma fruit jam and sweet golden raisins. Too sweet, but could be more complex and with no "extra"

Icedwarf (1516) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2015
Licht troebel bruin bier met schuim. Smaak is krachtig, licht zuur fruitig, bessen en perzik, echter niet zoet. Smaak wijkt af van meeste quadrupels.
