imdownthepub (14035) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2010
Bottle conditioned, 330ml aged 5 yrs. Dark chestnut to ruby with cream head. Initially I thought this was a sour, there is an appley, cidery note, however this smooths down to a still fruity, malty beer. Not obviously a stout as there is a sweet caramel background, but still pretty decent.

Lubiere (13417) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2007
A dark brown ale with a thick moka head. Pleasant sweet smokey malt aroma with notes of coffee , bread and figs. In mouth, a light sweet chocolate malt with roasted malts, peaty notes, figs, light coriander notes, and warming alcohol. The body is enticing and keeps you interested. A rather complex belgian nterpretation of a stout.

Christian (13280) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2011 Dark ruby with a bubbly, light brown head. Malt and molasses aroma with a touch of alcohol. Sweet caramel, slightly burned flavour with a hint of port.

Re-rate on tap at Christian Firtal, 2011: Lots of dried fruit aroma, figs and prunes, along with dark sugar and a hint of licorice. Sweet, dark sugar flavour dominating, with dried fruit and a spicy touch. Slightly oxidized, but only in a good, vineous way
