Fules (836) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 29, 2016
Monumentális, nagyon hosszú hab, barna szín. Illata nagyon gyenge, maláta és fűszerek. Íze sima, jól egybe simulnak a különböző aromák. Malátás alapon fűszeres, édeskés, hogy milyen fűszerek azt nem tudom. Érezni az alkoholt egy kicsit, és némi pezsgősséget. Utóíze a korty folytatása. Testes sör.

JDBaker11058 (1963) - Maryland, USA - JAN 26, 2016
appearance: deep clear ruby brown, short dense tan head. aroma: strong nose of candi sugar, raisin, and port. taste: malty and very sweet, with lots of candi sugar, toffee, cherry, raisin, fig, some molasses and chocolate. finish: lingering smooth sweetness, a hint of brandy, lasting candi sugar and some general yeasty spice. notes: I quite enjoyed this. Smooth, rich, and sweet. Not as yeasty-spicy as a traditional dubbel, and it felt like a double serving of candi sugar. Certainly not an everyday beer, but a good one. Bottle from Sarah for Beerdvent 2015.
