a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, - JAN 27, 2013
Dark beer, almost black, very thin off white head; aroma of yeast and sweet dark fruit; well carbonated; thick, slightly oily mouthfeel; spicy, treacly, sweet, cherries and raisins; alcohol always present - tastes super strength; the honey smack can be felt in the finish; the big flavours here are enjoyable, but they sure aren’t subtle.

La Barbar Bok au miel est une bière forte brune au miel produite par la Brasserie Lefebvre en Belgique. Parce que le guerrier a besoin de repos aussi, la Brasserie Lefebvre produit pour vous, un brassin hivernal de la Barbãr. Issue de la haute fermentation, la Barbãr Bock est une bière brune à base de Miel (2,5%). Sa mousse est d'un beige abondant et s'estompe rapidement après avoir été versée dans le verre. Au nez, les flaveurs de malt, de miel, de caramel et d'épices montent vite au nez. En bouche, quelle douceur ! C'est toujours malté, caramélisé, épicé. En fin de bouche, on retrouve une fine amertume. Elle se déguste fraîche, à environ 5°C.

Served in chalice at 3•. Pours very dark brown with a big crisp white head which lasts all the way to the bottom. Smell is underwhelming, not really of anything. Taste is sweet with subtle honey and malty undertones. Alcohol content is not readily apparent but builds in the aftertaste. A very enjoyable drink which I shall certainly have again.

Fules (483) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAY 9, 2016
Gyenge gyümölcsös, halvány karamelles beütésű illat. Gyümölcsös, nagyon picit citromos jelleg, kevés karamell íz is felfedezhető, és persze a háttérben folyamatosan ott lebeg a méz. Nagyon enyhén keserű. Szinte semmi utóíz. Kifejezetten testes sör.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Bottle. Dark brown body with a small lighter head. Caramel aroma with raisins and honey. Taste adds a mild spicy edge, presumably yeast esters, with chocolate and red fruit. Malty finish, with a bit short aftertaste.
