bipe74 (3) - Odense S, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2015 does not count
Meget mørk, og tung øl. Ikke meget skum. Dufter meget af frugt, smagen er sød og kraftig, er lidt "tung" i smagen, måske det er chokoladen der gør det

Een van de lekkerste IPS die ik tot nu toe op heb. Wat zachtere caramel/koffie smaak en is daardoor vrij toegankelijk.

Very dark brown color, thin brownish head. Aroma is very fruity, nutty, roasty, with coffee and chocolate ice cream. Taste is fairly sweet, thick and warming, very fruity, dark chocolate, smoke, light tartness. Smooth and complex. Full body, soft carbonation. Excellent.

Aroma of coffee, caramel, chocolate and toasted bread. Dark with a very small off white head. Thick and full bodied with hints of rasins, oak, wine, roasted bread, coffee and chocolate. Lots of flavours and a bit alcoholic. Very sweet as well. Aftertaste a bit dry and malty.

cervmagpt (437) - PORTUGAL - JUL 2, 2015
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 26D, adapted). Bottle 33 cl - Bottled on 10/12/13. AROMA: very complex and rich aroma with vinous notes, dark caramel, dried dark fruits and cocoa. background slight malty sweet. no hop aroma. APPEARANCE: dark brown color with a lot of sediment in suspension. thin light brown head with very low retention, maybe due to high alcohol content. TASTE: very rich flavour with notes of dark caramel, dark dried fruits, a strong vinous and port-like flavour, dark cocoa, all blended with a very good supportive and sweet malty background. low bitterness with a semi-sweet and slight roasted bitter finish. PALATE: creamy and velvety texture with a smooth alcohol warmth. low carbonation. OVERALL: an oustanding dark ale with very complex aroma and flavour that leaves you wanting more and more. just needs a bit improvement on the appearance. Recommended.

Zlotta (348) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2015
0,33 l bottle from EDEKA Mohr, bottled on 10/12/2013. Clear, very dark ruby with a thin, soapy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Intense, sweetish-fruity aroma of prunes, raisins, amarena cherries, cane sugar, coca-cola, caramel and lots of booze (rum). Shy notes of dark chocolate and licorice as well. Very sweet, fruity taste of prunes, raisins and amarena cherries, accompanied by molasses, cane sugar and a bit of caramel. Very long, slightly bitter and gently alcoholic, warming finish with notes of dark chocolate, licorice and rum. Full body, oily mouthfeel, totally flat. This is quite intense with lots of aroma and taste. Seems like a very strong doppelbock. The taste is fortunately not as alcoholic as the aroma suggests. Great winter warmer.
