Bosskie (722) - NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2016
Beautiful dark warm red beer, clear with a big white head and lots of bubbles.Smell is bitter sweet with subtle alcohol astringency, fruity. Apples, cherries, caramel, peaches. Hint of pepper, vanilla. Slightly metallic. Taste is bitter and astringent, a little too much so. Dry finish, crisp and sticky, with lots of raisin. Misses some sweetness to balance it out.

plaugher (366) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 13, 2016
12oz into a chalice. Pours a hazy amber with a finger of foamy white head. Nose of dark fruit, caramel, a bit of banana? Slight sweetness. Kind of medium-light in the body department.. Not really boozy, not really a whole lot of anything.

Color marrone scuro. Buona birra, molto profumata: alcol, frutta sotto spirito e frutti rossi. Al palato, purtroppo lalcol eccessivamente presente.

biirusaikou (2363) - - FEB 27, 2016
Draught at Delirium. Sweet malt with a strawberry edge, raisin, marmalade, bit of candy, kind of sweet boozy finish. Decent brew, even though I kind of expected some spicy kick somehow for the style.

sulawang (986) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 29, 2016
Visual: Pours opaque brownish red with a massive lasting ultra creamy head, 2mm retention, a bit of lacing, fast singular streams. Nose: yeasty honey, apple, banana wheaty candi barley malt (lvl-6)-pungency Attack: crisp, micro tingly-creamy Mid-palate: (lvl-7)-sweetness, micro-fizzy, (MAIN) toffee barley malt, caramel, grape/berry Finish: alcohol zingy, soft bitter hops, alcohol detection, malty residual bubbly clean finish. Summary: Supremely drinkable with expertly hidden 10% ABV; its incredible how smooth they made it. Great beer from start to finish.
