Ungstrup (34315) - Citizen of the universe, - JUN 22, 2009
Bottled. An amber beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt, straw, bread, metal, and alcohol. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of malt, caramel, and alcohol as well as lighter notes of bread, leading to a very sweet finish where notes of alcohol and caramel lingers. Reminds me of Ceres Red Eric - probably hits its mark in Italy

Belle robe cuivrée. Une mousse ivoire persistante qui laisse présager le trop de sucre! Une agréable douceur à l’odorat avec un peu de malt. Mais en bouche le sucre domine avec un peu d’amertume , ce qui amène un goût écoeurant !!!! Bière ambrée trop sucrée et douce qui cache les épices,l’anis,le caramel et notes fruitées que nous pouvons sentir en début de dégustation. Ce n’est pas une bière mais une boisson sucrée!

Belle robe cuivrée avec une mousse blanc cassé de faible tenue. Le nez est sur le sucre candi et la levure mais reste agréable. Le goût voit le sucre prendre nettement le dessus et le mélange avec l’amertume rend l’ensemble peu harmonieux. L’arrière bouche reste désespérément lourde et sucrée. Décevant...

Tried on tap@Cotta o Cruda... mai nuda 2016. Very nice amber red color, lot of malt and caramel in the aroma. Didn’t know that italians like some much sweet beers, and this one sure it is. Pretty simple.

jaghana (5488) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - AUG 23, 2016
Bottle 33cl, a clear amber beer. Taste is very sweet with some acidity. Aroma is on caramel, sugar, red fruit touch, belgian yeast, very sweet and unbalanced. Kind of artificial fruit beer.

Kampfar (154) - Münster, GERMANY - AUG 2, 2016
Pours fizzy, brown-reddish with a huge, frothy off-white head. Aroma with bread, yeast, slightly sweet, tasted dark malts, dark red fruit. Taste is medium to heavy sweet in the initial taste combined with a rich malty taste. Very light bitterness and Belgian yeast notes in the end. Medium long, medium sweet and light bitter finish. Medium to full bodied with a slightly thick mouthfeel (as the beer gets a bit warmer), fizzy carbonation. Had it better in my mind... Not well balanced, to sweet and too less bitter. Carbonation would fit better if it would be softer.

Cunningham (6957) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2016
A bit more bitterness and bit softer carbonation would have done this one well.
A really nice deep golden color with a fine thick off white head. Ok lacing down the sides of the glass. Good intensity in the aroma. Typical Belgian strong ale. Full body and an average carbonation. The carbonation could have been a bit softer. Would make it more comfortable to drink. A bit to sweet versus bitterness. Oily texture. Dried fruits, yeast, some spices, brown sugar and toffee in the flavor. Decent complexity.

Fules (791) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 17, 2016
Hosszú és nagy hab. Sötét borostyán szín. Erős illatából a komló fűszeressége köszön vissza. Intenzív édes karamelles íz, koriander, komló. Alig-alig keserű. Utóíze koriander, és karamell, és jó hosszú. Olyan testes, hogy desszert helyett is elmegy.

PapaVillum (858) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2016
Ravfarvet og let diset Belgian Strong Ale med større offwhite skumkrone på ungefär 3 cm. Svinder til landskaber og et par mm. Maltpræget aroma med noter af nødder og overmoden frugt. Smagen er umiddelbart alt for sød, og øllet er ubalanceret med for lille bitterhed. Meget karboneret og deraf ekstra meget skummende, som heller ikke gør noget godt for smagsindtrykket og mundfølelsen. Sødmen er nødde- og honningagtig. Olieret konsistens, kraftig karboneret og let sød samt ditto bitter afslutning. Overall: Jeg har, siden jeg første gang smagte en Corsendonk, aldrig helt brudt mig om deres øl, og denne variant bekræfter desværre dét førstegangsindtryk. Ubalanceret og for sød med ucharmerende bitterhed. 0,33 L, flaske, 8.0 % ABV, BB: 26/05/18, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

oliodnb (662) - ITALY - JUN 15, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2016 33cl bottle. Pours orange amber with a beautiful creamy white head. Aroma is light with some sweetness from the malts and a light metallic note. Taste is very sweet, way too much for my taste, can?t feel any flavor except for a lot of sugary sweetness and some yeast spiciness. Not a "bad" beer but I didn?t like it, couldn?t finish the bottle.
