Renobob (452) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 21, 2013
Une bière "rouge" qui n'en est pas vraiment une. Très légère sur le fruit et le côté vineux, elle reste corpulente mais plutôt moyen de gamme.

ChristianHR (151) - DENMARK - NOV 16, 2013
Pours amber red with a beige head with a nice lacing. Has aroma of caramel and orange. You can definitely smell the alcohol too. Tastes of caramel and dark roasted malts, with hints of dark chocolate.

Clear red ruby towards brown appearance. Medium head. Fruity aroma, sweet first taste, bitter finish. Good Belgian Strong Ale.

Bosbouw (818) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2013 Heldere bourdauxrode kleur met een volle kraag. Weinig geur. Iets zoetig. Smaakt lekker kekker zoet, mout en caramel. Iets bitter op het eind.

Panzerfaust (558) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - NOV 8, 2013
Pours a beautiful crimson to mahogany color with a big head. Aroma is malty and yeasty with lots of fruity notes that resemble cranberries, raspberries and liquor. Taste is clean, sweet and complex ending intensely and showing lots of character. Body is thick and oily and the beer leaves a lasting aftertaste. This is a pretty interesting belgian stron ale. Highly rewarding.

Swaroga (1108) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 20, 2013
33cl bottle. It says clearly it’s 8,5%abv. Clear brown/red with medium head. NOSE : caramel, tart, barnyard, strawberry, cherry, smoke, yeast. SIP : medium body with creamy texture. Medium carbonation. Sweet tart and yeasty start. Fruity background. Gets quite bitter in a curious way that I haven’t tasted before. Something like metallic bitterness with citron seeds. Still the beer seams out of balance. OVERALL : a bit out of balance but interesting. I don’t think I was seduced but at least surprised.
