Cloudy brown beer. Few whit bubbles forma semblance of a head. Fairly light palate. Zero carbonation. Chocolate malt nose with a little sherry. Mild chocolatey malt, sherry and a little floral sweetness. Whisper of peach. Finishes neutral. Hides the alcohol very well. Complex unique beer.

Labove (427) - Rome, ITALY - APR 9, 2011
Acquistata in un negozio di gastronomia a monteverde, lasciata invecchiare un annetto. Nonostante la sua complessità, si beve che è un piacere. Solo non sembra affatto una birra.

Ungstrup (29847) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2011
Bottled. An amber beer with no head. The aroma has notes of malt, honey, caramel, and wood. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and alcohol, leading to a dry finish. Thanks fiulijn for sharing.

Bottle, courtesy of fiulijn. Pours cloudy deep amber with no head. Aroma is overripe fruity and dark malty. Sweet, dark caramelish, vanilla and slight wooden. Lingering smooth caramelish and subdued fruity. Elegant, fragile and smooth. Lasting dark malty impression, sweet and phenolic mixed with alcohol.

Embrouille (2830) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 27, 2010
courtesy of fiulijn. Complex nose. Reminiscent of whisky throughout. Good but I am not overwhelmed by this beer.

Bottle. Pours a hazy pale amber color with a very small fast disappearing off-white head. Has a fruity woody and alcoholic dark fruit and caramel aroma. Sweetish malty caramel flavor with hints of dark fruit. Has a very sweet malty caramel finish with hints of dark fruit and some woody hints.

The Xyauyù Ultimate tasting
http://tinyurl.com/xyauyu1

Hazy color, dark amber, with red hue; flat. Caramel aroma, with some oxidisation, like a dubious quality Madeira and Chinese rice wine, some alcohol and very light phenol; later there is a very light fruity note (prunes); not extremely inviting overall. Sweet malt flavor, very sugary and sticky; therefore the alcohol constitutes a pleasant note. The final is just sweet, without much else to say. Good for a sweet tooth like mine, but really not much complexity in this one.
