TimE (2977) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 9, 2014
Brown color. Funky yeasty nose with some chocolate notes, but overall lacked balanced, complexity and had some off flavors which weren’t very enjoyable. I just could not finish a glass of this beer.

sebletitje (6326) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 17, 2013
Draft @ Fiera della Birra di Ferrara, Nov 2013. Grazie Federico for the sample. Brune foncée, col café au lait. Arôme offre une belle pointe de levure, malt caramel, fruité noir rappelant les dates avec un rétro-nasal centré sur le sucre candy et petite douceur mielleuse. Houblonné reste ici plus subtil. Palais présente un malté profond et complexe. Je note ici aussi un fruité noir entre date et prune. Le tout est relevé par un petit côté réglisse qui se marie parfaitement à un malt grillé-caramel. Fini garde l’essence d’une base belge de par la levure.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 7, 2013
Bottle at Birrivico, Como; bb 31.01.2014 12412512, 7.3% ABV
Dark brown color with small head. Strong aroma of sweet caramel. Good body strength, lean mouthfeel; sweet caramel flavor, with something that feels like oxidisation; relatively low bitterness; the alcohol provides a pleasant warmth.
Nice, but uncomplicated.

FatPhil (8548) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 2, 2013
330ml bottle (One Pint Pub, Helsinki) (6+:4:6+:4:13=3.3++)
Nice brune - very dark, and a tight cappucino head. Nice estery aroma - juicy and sweet, but beneath that there’s a nice dark toasty roast - wholemeal grains. Smooth palate, soft carbonation. Lots of sweet esters in the retronasals. Full toasty taste. Some dry fatty walnut paper noble hop finish. Very nice.

oh6gdx (20003) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 12, 2013
Bottled@HBF2013. Deep ambery brown colour, small off-white head. Aroma is citrus, alcohol, mild glue and some spices. Flavour is citrus, glue, spices, alcohol and some yeastyness. A bit too much gluelike sweetness, otherwise quite close to a good BSA.

Erasmus_ro (1187) - Alabama, USA - APR 20, 2013
Bottle @ HBF2013. Pours dark brown, a very small, yellowish-brown ring of bubbles. Aroma is strong and sweet yellow apples, caramel is strong as well, some pear as well as light ethanol. Taste is caramel as well as the sweet, fresh yellow apples again, some pear flavor as well. Palate is medium with some carbonation.

Mortlach (955) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 16, 2012
16/05/2012 Open Baladin Roma (tap). Bruna, profonda, impenetrabile, bellissima, con riflessi color mogano, magnifico cappello di schiuma bianca, molto persistente. Al naso note di miele di castagno, frutta secca e lieviti, non molto intenso ma ben equilibrato. In bocca è dolce, malto, caramello, miele, abbastanza ben equilibrata. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Discreta, ma niente di eccezionale.
