Dark amber colour with a very smal beige head. Fruity and malty aroma with some alcohol coming through. A very intense fruity sweetness. Round nice texture. Very well hidden alcohol in the flavour. Nice and enjoyable.

Bottle. It pours an unclear, brown to amber body with some offf-white to light beige bubbles on top. Alcohol, maltyness and some grassy, piney hops on the nose. And then some more alcohol. Still, quite pleasant. The flavor is citrusy and piney up front, with a caramel maltyness as a backbone, alcohol all over the way, but it’s really tasteful. Full-bodied and warming, maybe a tad low on carbonation, but it’s a strong, almost oily beer so no points deducted for that. Really lasting finish with a good shot of bitterness to deal with all the sweetness. A bit too much maybe, this one, but still really nice. 111209

On tap at Borefts I. Hazy dark amber beer. Smooth palate, soft with a crisp edge. Semi sweet malt, very slightly porty. Hides the alcohol pretty well - comes over like a 10.0% beer. Sweet beer but not quite one of these ’Liquer Beers’.

teddybeer (2338) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 6, 2012
[Thanks to fonefan]. Brown colour without head. Malty aroma with red fruits notes, caramelish. Flavour has notes of caramel, brown sugar, grapes and red fruits hints. Malty, dense on palate with a balanced final, vinous, alcoholic and with a decent duration. Carbonation is soft. Body is high. Texture is oily.

ChainGangGuy (4420) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Appearance: Pours a clearish, dusky, garnet-hued body sans head. Smell: Aromas of toasted, crusty bread, sea salt caramel, pureed fruits, and a big nostril-dialating whiff of alcohol. Taste: Dark caramel-coated toasted dark bread with a flood of warming sherry and fruity flavors of tartish strawberry and raspberry jams. Pinch of pipe tobacco, dash of spice. Stagnant, coagulated yeast provides some earthiness. The initial sip of sherry coarsens into an astringent solvent alcohol harshness, thwarting the other tastes. Soft, dry, hot finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus, viscous body. Very low carbonation. Overall: Good enough for a slow, cautious sipper! Boldly alcoholic, I’ll say, but it isn’t exactly easy to simply tuck away nearly 17% alcohol, though it starts to mask as the booze begins to numb the palate.

Koelschtrinker (11045) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Im Antrunk ist dasBier leicht hefig, was sich stufenweise steigert. Die Malzigkeit fällt meistens unter den Tisch, was nicht heißen soll, dass sie nicht im Vordergrund steht, vielmehr stielt die Hefigkeit ihr meistens die Show. Daher schmiegt sich das Malz an die Hefe, was aber nicht ganz zusammen passt. Harmonisch trotz 16%, die Intensität ist angenehm. 13/11/11/13//12
