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.

Lilja (2184) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2015
Smak och doft av karamell, brunt socker, plommon, inlagda päron, kryddor, jäst, bröd med toner av honung och läkerol special. Stor sötma, rund och len, fruktig med fin beska. Hade med fördel lagrats några år.

Bawelt (99) - Lyon, FRANCE - JUN 13, 2015
Un peu surestimée à mon goût. Elle est très ronde, gros arôme de miel fort de montagne. L’alcool est peu présent malgré son titrage mais ne porte finalement que peu de corps ou d’arômes. Agréable, équilibrée, peu écoeurante mais rien de surprenant.
