3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a dark orange, brown colour without any head. Very present aroma of malts, alcohol and overripe fruits like plums, citrus fruits and others. Flavour is fruity sweet followed by an alcoholic sweetness. Very cloying, syrupy mouthfeel. Youíll notice the 15% alcohol, while drinking, and after drinking. Great beer to sit back and relax with...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Strong, syrupy aroma is rather sweet, not really like beer at all, with notes of molasses and honey. It pours a clear, dark cola brown with a skimpy head that doesnít hang around long. Flavor is quite sweet, more like wine than beer - and watch out for that alcohol bite! Well, look at the ABV and then wonder why it bites like an angry pit bull. Texture is rather like a hard liquor, mainly raw alcohol bite with some sweet and fruity and molasses hints. I prefer a beer that smells, tastes and feels like beer. However, different strokes for different folks.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle courtesy of ygtbsm94. Served in a sampler glass. Pours a medium caramel color with no real head, though none is expected from a brew like this. Nose is strong malt and sweetness with some fruit in the background. Flavor has quite a bit of sweetness drowning out some of the subtleties from the nose. Medium-full body. A bit viscous. Some booze. Pretty good.

Hazy amber beer, no head and no carbonation. Silky and slightly oily palate. Sweet soft malt with a little brandy and sherry. A good deal of aniseed spice on the finish. Unusual.

Kulminator on the Borefts 1 trip. Sweet sweet malt. Lovely sweet Port Wine tones. Much better than previous bottle.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Red wax 33cl bottle. Bottled on Aug 2011, poured into a tulip glass. Pours thick amber with nearly no head. Nose is hard to pin down, fruity, grapes, port, very complex. Taste is sweet! Almost like a tawny port. Not much carbonation, very syrupy. Well done, but I would imagine a few years would do this beer some good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
.33l bottle from Only Good Beer in Budapest, from August 2011. Already huge and mellow, minimal soapy head on rich clean brown-red cider body. Huge wafts of fruit, pear and grape, and rich alcohol. some tart hops too. Huge body, coating and but also dry. fruit, wine and cider. hop balance is impressive, perhaps too bitter in the end, certainly a bit alc-forward.Big and strong, not my favorite in the end, perhaps more age on this will mellow in the right direction.

Hi, I bought this beer in April 2012, it was brewed & bottled in Nov 2009. I would like to keep it for 10-15 years. Iím interested if or how time will change the taste and the low carbonation that everyone is talking about.

Pour out of 330 mL is dark brownish red with thin off white head, aroma brought big dark fruits, chocolate, hints of caramel, toffee and vanilla, hints of grass, slight earthy tones, big and rich, slight hint of booze with a orange and citrus note but really not bad. Tate is a mix of caramel, toffee, slight booze and heat but nice fruity notes, dark fruits with raisin, figs, hints of caramelized sugars, finishing fairly sweet.
