Bawelt (486) - Lyon, FRANCE - APR 29, 2016
En soi, bonne mais très déséquilibrée. Bouquet très fort et assez riche : caramel, banane, pomme, cannelle. La bouche est plus amère, assez éthylique mais timide dans les arômes. On retrouve timidement le bouquet. En revanche : je l’ai goûtée après une bouchée de panzerotti au citron : la PERFECTION !!!

anstei (1012) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 26, 2016
Bottle. Caramelized dark brown. Caramel is present throughout, but rather of the bitter kind. Pleasantly malty. The ABV doesn’t really show, just slightly on swallowing. Nice.

Nonshaugen (398) - Fetsund, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2016
33 cl flip-top, bottle conditioned. Very dark ruby brown-red, loads of floating sediments, thin tan head. Aroma is very spicy and sweet. Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation, bitter aftertaste. Flavour is very spicy, lots of clove, chilli heatness, peppers, dark fruits and alcohol. All in all this beer features a lot of impressions. It’s complex and impossible to ignore. Well put together, but I don’t think I will buy another one.
