Cork popped on its own after I removed the cage. Poured from bottle into Maudite glass. Head about 1", foamy shaving cream type, and pretty pure white; sinks down to a thinnish but persistent layer. Liquid is dark brown with a little bit of red hue in the light. Aroma has a lot of metal in addition to the expected dark fruit, brown sugar, and candy. Flavor is rich and sweet, with a sharp note of bitterness. Spicy, even. Mouthfeel is extremely light and dry for a beer of this strength. No alcohol detected anywhere. Interesting in some ways, but overall a bit harsh.

Fules (477) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 17, 2016
Hosszan tartó nagy hab, finom fűszeres, komlós illat, erős karamelles beütéssel. Íze erősen komlós, karamelles, határozott gyümölcsös érzettel. Az alkoholt igencsak érezni, utóíze enyhén kesernyés, citrusos, és hosszan megmarad. Testes sör.

Bottle to Belgian glass. Rich deep brown, creamy head. Heady aromas of caramel, spice. Boozy, but not over-rich. Supple and tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Espuma beige que se va disipando pero permanece como una fina capa, color marrón achocolatado y opaco, el aroma en nariz es ligero, sabor potente con regusto donde se aprecian sus 10ş

R4N5H (675) - NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2016
33cl bottle, poured into a matching long stemmed tulip glass. A Xmas gift from my eldest son. Dark reddish brown colour with a thick tan coloured head. Strong sweet smell of caramel, stewed dark fruits, sugar, and Belgian yeast. Full body and light carbonation. Sweet caramel and molasses on tasting, fruit and spices (which taste a little artificial). Sticky sweet and bitter finish.

Bosskie (700) - 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.
