prawlie (1303) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2015
Bottle bought at Reading Beer Festival. Jet black, with no head. Smells like a dessert, chocolatey, and of toasted malt. Spiced, slick and boozy with lots of roast and some figs. Well balanced and a fine sipping beer.

Mörkbrun öl med ett lättare ljusbrunt skum. Dofter av russin, karamell, ckoklad och malt. I smaken så tillkommer viss alkoholmsötma och lättare trätoner.

Flanfl (301) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - SEP 15, 2015
Dark brown colour, small brown head. Great aroma, toffee, chocolates, lots of dried fruits, some liquorice and roasted malt notes. Great flavour as well, dried fruits and toffee are upfront, blended with chocolate notes. Then comes the alcohol with lots of malt complexity. Finish is shorter than i expected for such a flavourfull beer. The slightly warm dried fruits flavour stays a bit whil the bitterness shows up. Oily body, mow carbo. Smashing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Procent (347) - POLAND - SEP 10, 2015
Ciemne słody i suszone owoce na pierwszym planie, lekko likierowe, jest wanilia i trochę czekolady. Co dziwne niewiele słodów palonych. Ale aromat doskonały, połączenie Barley Wine i RISa. Kolor to ciemny brąz, pływa niestety dużo farfocli, ale piwo nie odstało dużo. W smaku już więcej kawy, wanilia, karmel, jest słodko, dość gęsto, oblepiająco, syropowo. W smaku to z kolei połączenie porteru bałtyckiego i RISa. Ciała sporo, ale mogłoby być jeszcze gęstsze, goryczka niska, piwo zdecydowanie słodkie. Bardzo dobre! Warka do 29.06.2020
