corkyrory66 (929) - BELGIUM - AUG 1, 2015
Double de haute fermentation, non filtrée, de 6,8 % abv. Elle assemble dit le brasseur l’eau pure de l’Ardenne et un brassage high tech. Couleur châtain foncé aux nuances prune et roux, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines très vives partout. Mousse beige clair, très crémeuse, avec une remarquable structure en cratères. Arômes de malt finement grillé sublime, épice, bois, fruits mûrs. 1ère bouche veloutée à la splendide entrée sur malt, épice, houblon et du bois de fût. Arrière-bouche dense, pleine et complexe, longue. 2ème au magnifique ensemble malt/houblon/épices. Arrière-bouche sur des chaumes d’été mélangé à des feuilles mortes. 3ème bouche à la belle texture, mais complexité un peu inférieure. Arrière-bouche très bien, mais moins longue. Longueur à la très belle impression, mais un léger creux par rapport aux deux premières bouches. Jambes fines, fortement marquées. Levure fine, mais un peu ténue. Alcool bien pour le genre, efficace. Finale dont on voudrait un peu plus. CONCLUSION : une double qui fait partie des meilleures, mais qui rate le coche de la grande distinction... Les premières impressions laissaient présager d’un prodige, mais la longueur a réduit un peu les prétentions... Malgré tout, de haute valeur...

Bontus (697) - Flanders, BELGIUM - APR 12, 2015
Bottle 33cl, Geers. Pours dark copper brown. Caramel nose, quite syrupy, coca cola like. Munich malts & many unfermented sugars obviously. Slight burnt notes. Not bad per se, but too sticky

JefVerstraete (2141) - Ghent, BELGIUM - APR 1, 2015
Bottle @ home. Brown colour, beige foam. Medium carbonation. Fruity (dark fruit) with notes of caramel. Light sweet with a sour hint. Bit watery. Ok, nothing special.

Alusmamuts (1074) - LATVIA - NOV 14, 2014
Nice brown colour with medium light brown, bit creamy and fastly dissappearing head. Chockolade and sour aroma. Probebly I got a rotten bottle, as taste is too sour, behind that sourness it is difficult to feel other notes, except some caramel bitterness.

caesar (5828) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2014
Bottle brought by a friend, medium sample. Hazy brown color, short frothy off-white head. Aroma is spicy with a funky touch, caramel. Sweet, bit sour. Like a spicy rodenbach, but again not intentional and not pretty good and balanced. Another miss.

ThirstyBird (2223) - London area, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2014
Pours ac deep brown color with some orange lingering around the edges. The beer smells of licorice, brown sugar. The taste is molasses, day fruit, yeast, spice. The body is light/medium with active carbonation.

Hazelnootbruin, nauwelijks schuim. Rokerig, koffie. Bitter, zoet, maar erg waterig. Niet zo bijzonder.
