danielecamo (845) - ITALY - JAN 13, 2015
In bottiglia. Colore marrone con riflessi rubino, enorme deposito di lievito che vaga a pezzi per il bicchiere. Da subito si nota che la conservazione della bottiglia non è stata delle migliori. Aroma non del tutto deteriorato, al palato invece sentori di acetone. Bottiglia sfortunata

Ysok02 (458) - MOns, BELGIUM - JAN 8, 2015
Robe ambrée reflets bruns. Nez peu marqué par le houblon, mais plutôt par le maltage, note de caramel, d”épices, de fourrure mouillée. Bouche d’une belle ampleur, amertume peu marquée, beaucoup de rondeur et finale sur la caramel. Un bière hivernale idéale sur le fromage.

Kauge (814) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle from Wine of Galilee in Tallinn. Opening the bottle makes the foam slowly but surely rise out of the bottle - better pour it quick. Dark brown colour with a hue of mahogany or chestnut. Loads of sediment. Head is massive, creamy, retains extremely well without much lacing. Nose is caramel and brown sugar, dark malts, dark fruits, subtler notes of vanilla, toffee and chocolate, a bit of mintiness even. Taste seems more alcoholic than that of the Brune, but as sweet and caramelly, and that sweetness is quite intense and sugary, coupled with very little bitterness in the finish. Body medium plus, carbonation thin but active, palate soft but a bit grainy, with a dry malty finish. Alcohol nearly non-detectable. Overall it’s almost as good as the Brune, but somehow feels less complex, and more straightforwardly sweet. Still very good though!

Marduk (4203) - Reval, ESTONIA - JAN 1, 2015
330ml bottle. Hazy copper color. Chunky crap in the bottle despite of sitting in the fridge for weeks. Small size, yellow head, stays. Caramel, sweetish, dusty, clove?, chocolate in aroma. Metallic, yeast, caramel in taste. Sweet caramel in aftertaste. Absolutely stale. Feels bit old, but BB is 10/2015. Alcohol is well hidden.

EddyBeer1 (1058) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2014
Brune classique, effervescence moyenne-légère, col beige crémeux. Malts bien torréfiésmais pas trop, légèrement réglissée, fruits noirs assez présents, un peu de sucre candi, un rien de moka et d’épices, chaleur d’alcool présente.
