Blom (848) - Sorø, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2010
Hazy brown with a dense head. Yeasty aroma - very t IJ-like - with further notes of nuts and berries. The flavour is sweet and malt-dominated - but a bit too much in the long run.

Bottle. Massive gusher. Pours muddy brown coloured with lots of floaties. Nice creamy off white lasting and lacing head. Aromas of cherries, dried fruit, marzipan and yeast. Flavours of caramel, syrup and sweet malt. Messy product with a lovely aroma.

JanEric (1250) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2009
Pours out heavily with lots of foam and yeast in the bottle. Half the bottle disappears on the table. What remains is a hazy dark brown glass, with a dense creamy head. Aroma of caramel, clove, nutmeg and coriander. tastes very caramel-like, a bit sweet and also alas a bit watery. I miss the balance in this beer.

3.8
Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2009
Pours a hazy coppery orange color with an enormous solid orange/yellow head. Aroma of citrus, orange, a bit dusty, dark malt and alcohol. Wonderful bittersweet taste that starts off sweet with hints of peach, orange and citrus and then completely turns over into a dry bitter finish with malt notes and some hoppyness that lingers on and on. Also very well carbonated. Nice one.

3.3
TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 22, 2009
Bottle (in NZ) - lively pours, a hazy dark amber with a large frothy yellowish head. On the nose - medicinal, toffee, some fruit, and slightly nutty. Fruity and spicy, with warming alcohol on the palate. Big and bold, but just doesn’t ruffle my feathers.

3.2

At vonk slijterij zaandam bottle 330ml, heazy brown, medium head, some red fruits and citrus fruits, some caramel, lots of spices, nice one but a bit overwalming.
