“750ml bottle, v2014, at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki. Copper red color with no head. Fruity aroma, berries, very light barnyard-funky notes, some wood. Sweet and light acidic taste, fruity funky again. Light to medium oily body with flat to soft carbonation.” -- by rouhlas

Bottle: Murky, cloudy brown-red color with a splash of rusty orange; foamy lavender head fizzles down quickly. Insanely juicy aroma. Cherry, sour lacto, raspberry, lemon, even a touch of blueberry. Just a berry bomb. Soft sweaty funk, dry oak, vanilla, small touch of yogurt, & a tiny bit of acetobacer towards the finish. Lovely funk amplified in the flavor; wet oak, musty barnyard, cotton blanket, a touch of cheese, & some sweaty feet. However the fruity character stands just as tall. Sour raspberry, lemon, cherry; slightly seedy & jammy up front as it fades to a more acidic & dry lacto finish; tart & hinting at white wine vinegar. Oak finish with some hay, funk, & berry skins that linger. Incredible. Better than 3F Framboos, in my opinion.” -- by tectactoe

“Just a great IPA plain and simple lives up to the hype. Its a darn shame this beer is not easier to obtain so more beer lovers of IPA’S could at least try and enjoy this beer.” -- by maxifunk777

“Baczka. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana beżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, utrzymująca się do samego końca. Niesamowity, intensywny aromat wanilii, kawy, czekolady, palonych słodów przy mocno zmrożonym piwie. W smaku olbrzymia słodycz. Kakao, wanilia, rodzynki, orzechy. Istne bogactwo smaku. Trunek grzeje w przełyk, wyczuwalne gryzące przełyk papryczki ale dosłownie przez chwile. Wysoka goryczka, niezalegająca. Niesamowicie gęste, aksamitne a zaraz gładkie. Trunek doskonały o niesamowitym bukiecie i smaku. Do długiej degustacji. ” -- by tomekboniek

“Bomber to a snifter. On the occasion of my mothers 80th birthday. Thick black pour with thin tan head. Sweet toffee, vanilla, dark chocolate and espresso on the nose. A full, rich, complex, layered flavor profile. Balanced with a a boozy finish. My top rated beer to date!!! Fantastic.” -- by Tstamba

“Bottle. Pours a thick black with a minimal mocha head. Big aromas of cacao and coffee, roasted malts, slight alcohol as it warms. Taste is smoky and bitter; the flavors lack the lusciousness of Bomb!. Very dry.” -- by Mr_Abner

“Bottle. Dark brown (almost black) pour with a nice beige bubbly head that dissipated quickly. Coffee, dark dried fruits, soil, lead. Good carbonation. Medium milky body. A lot of great coffee but not overwhelming. Awesome balance of acidity, bitterness, sweetness and alcohol. Long coffee finish that ends with a long alcohol burn in the throat. Hides the alcohol well. Really nice” -- by Tonkun

“Thanks aaron for this whale. Lot’s going on with this beer. No.1 it’s extremely rich. Chocolate, malts, bourbon, etc. Smell is big barrel age bourbon coming through, chocolate, roasted malts, and vanilla. Taste is similar. Bourbon and alcohol are noticeable. Not your mom and pop beer. I’m sweating while drinking. Big beer, for big beer nerds. Not my style, but i can accept the artisan that put this shit together. It’s good, would i seek out again - absolutely not.” -- by michcam8

“Bottle from the LCBO. Murky dark reddish brown body under a huge off white head that hangs around for a while. Leaves lots of spotty lace. Nose has lots of dark fruit, molasses, ginger, light cloves and pepper. Medium sweet fruit and toffee with a light bitterness and a slight red grape tartness with a pervasive balanced spiciness. Medium almost creamy mouth with a fine prickly carbonation and a long complex fruity finish. Great multi-faceted ale.” -- by jksipa

“2009 bottle. Thanks ShroudofDoom! This was poured into a chalice. The appearance was a dark ruddy brown color with a slim white head that dissipated to a soft glaze of lacing. It slid nicely. The smell had a soft sweet dark fruit with a light sweet cherry, a little bit of coffee and a light chocolate shaping the aroma nicely. The taste was mainly sweet through the previously mentioned flavors and gave an extremely sticky dark fruity aftertaste leading to a sweet wet fruity finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a decent sessionable quality about it. The carbonation was barely there but that’s okay considering this was a 2009 bottle. Sweet smooth sticky notes cling nicely to the feel of the beer over my tongue. Overall, oh wow, what a wonderful Belgian Strong Ale. For fans, this should be on everyone’s list.” -- by Bulk_Carrier
