reakt (950) - Greater London, - APR 16, 2010
Bottle from Dranken Geers, upon recommendation of Duff (about 2 years old with a best before ’09).
Poured reddish brown with a thin beige head. Displayed some obvious signs of age but retained many of the aforementioned qualities I see below. Dark malts, slightly bready, some caramel/candi sugar sweetness and a hint of fruit. Had developed quite a strong brett character which was lovely, in fact it was like an Orval dubbel, although a tiny bit thin on the palate. I expected it to be ruined after sitting in my flat for two years but it was still really nice.

rami_pl (1647) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 29, 2016
butelka, warka do 28.04.2018. bardzo wysoka choc grubopecherzykowa piana, brunatno-brazowe, chyba metne piwo. Aromaty bardzo slodowe, i to raczej w ta ciezka strone - chleb, zboze, ale ciemne owoce tez, troche alko nieirytujacego, banany, karmel, przyprawy w tle. jakies rodzynki czy bakalie nawet. w ustach slodkie, wysoko wysycone, ciut kwaskowate, jest alkohol, prawie nie ma goryczki... mocno niezbalansowane, ale w sumie to zle nie jest, dosc specyficzne.

tricksta_p (3254) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma is malt, caramel, dark bread, brown sugar, yeast, raisins, some fruity notes. Flavour is medium sweet with a little bitterness in the finish. Also a hint of sourness. Body is just medium, a bit thinner than expected. Drinkable, but a bit too sugary for my taste.
