pivnizub (10139) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2016
Bottle( from the MoritzF’s archives…! BBE 06/12, sampled 01/16): Reddish-amber coloured, clear(!!!), small and stable off-white head with a good lace; distinctive nose of sweet dried fruits, toasted malt and a touch of wood; solid sweet flavour with a slight malty bitterness, full bodied, not soft; distinctive - warming - alcoholic traces in the winous-woody finish. A bit on the sweet side, but still a pleasant winter-warmer…

33cl bottle at home. Pours a dark amber colour with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, brown sugar, herbs. Taste is fairly sweet with low bitterness. Notes of caramel, malts, fruits, herbs and spices. Has a sticky texture with average cabonation. Somewhat off balanced but okay.

33cl Flasche "Keizer Karel Charles Quint" rouge. Rit-braune Farbe mit flachem beigem Schaum. Fruchtiges Aroma nach Beeren und Wein. Kräftiger Geschmack, etwas zu alkoholisch.

susonagger (197) - spain, - OCT 7, 2015
ta: Profundo color marrón rojizo con espuma beige con mucho aire que se disipa rápidamente. Cuerpo pesado, baja carbonatación. Olor potente donde se nota la levadura, así como aire a caramelo y a fruta. Sabor muy afrutado, recuerda a vino por sabor como de uva, muy especiado, poco amargor, mucho recuerdo y se nota mucho el alcohol.

Milter (712) - Nyborg, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2015 OK Strong Ale, frisk smag, meget mild, savner noget humle og fyld. Kedelig udseende, meget skum.

Bawelt (546) - Lyon, FRANCE - SEP 14, 2015
À la fois bonne mais sans grande surprise. Déjà, cela ressemble à s’y méprendre à une scotch ale. Du nez à la bouche : très caramelisee et fumée. En se calmant, on retrouve des notes plus boisées.
