Duvelfan (139) - Getxo (Basque Country), - MAR 6, 2013
Botella de 33 cl. Color ambar oscuro. Sin apenas espuma. Tanto en nariz como en boca destaca el alcohol, demasiado evidente a lo largo de toda la cerveza. Para mi prescindible

Svesse (6147) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2013
(Draught at De Prael Proeflokaal, Amsterdam, 22 Feb 2013) Dark brown colour, almost black, with foamy beige head. Malty, fruity nose with caramel, dried fruit, raisins and dark bread. Malty, fruity taste with notes of caramel, dried fruit, dark rye bread, raisins and a gentle spicy bitterness in the finish. Full body, fairly sweet. Well balanced with alcohol deceptively well hidden. Nice one.

I had higher expectations from this one. Although it holds an alcoholpercentage of 11.5%, it isn’t the powerful you would expect. Its taste is a bit too flat in my opinion. OK, but nothing special.

Brown/black quadrupel. No head.... Hmmm. Strong, somewhat alcoholic taste. Almost no aftertaste. An ok-beer but one I will not buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jaghana (3903) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - DEC 18, 2012
Bottle 33cl, a syrupy dark amber beer with small creamy and off white head. Nose is on barley notes, cereal and alcohol. Aroma is again very grainy, lot of barley sugar, toasted notes, sweet oranges, yeast, bit massive, cherries, grassy bitterness at the finish. Not unpleasant but unbalanced.

jmgreenuk (4341) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2012
Bottle shared with Deanso. The aroma is dry malty leading to a yeasty malty sweet alcoholic beer. Nice to drink but not good enough for a session and at 11+ percent too its not advisable either!

eManu (448) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 26, 2012
From a 33cl. Pours and almost black brown color with a very thin beige head, that only left a ring around the glass after a minute of pouring. Aroma of caramelized malts, dry fruits, plums, and brown candy sugar, light hops. Flavors, as the aroma caramelized malts, dry fruits, plums, and brown candy sugar, light hops, and some spices. Quite sweet and thick, light hop bitterness. Not so complex and heavy, but rather rough. long lasting sirup taste in mouth. Interesting but nothing great.

Temptation (224) - - NOV 20, 2012
Not too good aspect, maybe because of its organic brewing. No head, and it’s like a coke opened two weeks before. The mouthfeel is much better: caramel, liquorice, alcohol and hops reasonably well hidden. Creamy texture and high body, but very short development. Irregular, but not bad at all.

33 cl. bottle @ home - thx. to Martinus for this one. Pours dark brown, light hue bordeaux, smaller tanned head. Smell is sweet boozy, berries, licorice, molasses, toffee, caramel malts. Bit odd taste, very heavy on chocolate milk with some plain chocolate, lightly watery, berries, touch roast, twigs, sweet spices, somewhat bitter in the end, where the alcohol pops up and starts warming your through, strong chocolate milk nature remains, rather enjoyable at first if bit odd, gets hard to finish by the end of the bottle - yeah

vipinvelp (2187) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2012
darker ruby color, clear with light brown frosty foam head, lacing to glass. It reduces over time but stays. Aroma is caramel and toffee, with some alcohol there. Taste is like a bock, bit stronger, but the alcohol is not overwhelming. Short bittersweet aftertaste, more sweet. (Velp 201210)
