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.

Bawelt (71) - 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.

karpik (240) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAY 30, 2015
Sweet, fruity aroma - plum, cherry, black currant. Dark brown colour, not very tall tan head. Taste is sweet and fruity, just like the nose. Bitterness is low. Overall nice beer, nothing special, but just good.

lbianchi66 (104) - FRANCE - MAY 16, 2015
Robe brune, légèrement ambrée. Mousse bien. Le miel domine, mais on sent aussi des saveurs de fruits noirs, pruneau, biscuit et levure. Légèrement sèche en bouche. Longue en bouche. Texture épaisse et carbonatation très fine: super texture. Une excellente bok.
