sailracer (486) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Pours a deep, murky brown with medium head that lingers quite awhile. Smooth drinking with mild banana and clove flavors. Not as sticky or sweet as I was expecting. It has a slightly spicy aftertaste with some lingering alcohol burn. Pretty good overall.

john44 (2610) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2017
Bottle. Dark brown coloured. Aroma of malts, fruits and spices. Very malty (bready malts, toffee, candy sugar, chocolate). Fruity (dark fruits, raisins, plums). Yeasty (lots of floaties and sediment). Quite Spicy. Hoppy (some balancing hop bitterness). Rich, smooth, flavoursome. Alcohol well disguised. Sweet malty fruity spicy throughout. Long dry fruity malty finish. Very Complex. Excellent. Deservedly a World Classic. Fantastic beer! (2008)

sjorsvdg (484) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 11, 2017
Krachtig aroma met wat hout, gist, pruimedant, abrikoos. Donkerbruine quadrupel met een zeer mooie schuimkop. In het smaakpalet komen hartige en zoete tonen voor: in het begin wat stro, hout, gist en koffie, daarna de zoetere fruitige tonen met pruim, vijg en abrikoos, gevolgd door een licht bittere afdronk van geroosterd brood en wat koffie. Uitstekend!

CanCrusher (1031) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - FEB 10, 2017
Bottle 0,33L. Hazy, dark chestnut color with average big, fizzy, light brown head that goes away fast. Big yeasts sediment. Strong aroma of dried dark fruits, caramel and alcohol. Taste starts slightly sweet with a lot of dried dark fruits, than turns to light to medium bitter finish with a lot of mentioned fruits and some Belgian yeasts. Ive aged it almost two years after date of exp. and next time Ill buy it, Ill try it fresher.

LiwkoLiwko (125) - POLAND - FEB 5, 2017
Ciemne z książkową pianą. Drobnopęcherzykową i trwałą. W zapachu leśne owoce, triszkę karmelu i końskiej derki. Disyć wysoko nasycone. Gładkie i lekkie. Grzejące. Bez efektw wow
