androman (921) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2015
37.5cl bottle at home from Only Good Beer, Budapest. Body is pitch black, head is flat, no lacing. Nose is grape juice, flavor is bubble gum, blueberries, honey, rosť, raspberries, dried fruits, light roasty and chocolate, light licorice. Medium to heavy sweet, light bitter, medium fruity sour. Finish is medium lasting fruity medium sweet sour with chocolate notes, alcohol is totally hidden. Full body, oily texture, nearly flat carbonation. Not quite easy, very tasty dessert beer, complex fruity aroma with great balance, rather wine than beer, not my style but this is surprisingly good.

11.7% ABV Strong alcoholic shock. Followed very quickly by herbal flavor notes reminiscent of luo han guo (same color!!). Followed by prolonged sustained base notes of roasted barley and a wheaty aftertaste. Strong yeasty nose, smells like Marmite. Very hefty beer not only because of the alcohol content but more significantly because of the strong medicinal taste profile which is not for the faint of heart or beer neophytes. Finishes with a very satisfying wet French kiss (with lotsa tongue) of a malty smack which lingers just long enough to leave you wistful and just a little giddy.

FatPhil (10892) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 12, 2015
Tap (TCBW15) (6+:4:6+:4:13+=3.3+++)
Sweet heavy fruity belgian aroma, alcohol definitely not hidden. Very pleasant fruity body - backed with dark berries. Very sweet, but that works as a sipper. Not too sticky either, as the sharpness of the berries counter the sugariness. The taste covers the alcohol behind the sugars and berries well, but itís clearly a very hefty brew.

23.10.2014. Keg. Aroma of red wine and raspberries. Taste is slightly tart, raspberry, blackcurrant, saltiness, still also some wine-like, warmth of alcohol. This is good, different.
