Bottle at Bellwoods Brewery, $30. Well, it appears all the hype was true. This was one of the most wonderful beer drinking experiences I have ever had. The part which impressed me most was the palate, the carbonation seemed to roll from the sides of my tongue to the middle, unlike any other beer I have ever tasted. Rich winey flavours mixed with a slight amount of funky sourness. Very little bitterness, refreshing despite its heaviness, only a small alcohol burn despite the high alcohol content. Absolutely mind blowing.

I’ve tasted with that beer one of the best beer in the all world. The mix of all the characters is just perfect to give to that beer the title of Best Beer in the world.

Bitter and toast taste good texture in the mouth. Good but i don’t like the sediments too much. Nice beer!

Bottle thanks to Rick. Pours a cloudy brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong yeast, toasted malt, raisin. Medium mouth with dark fruit, toasted malt, nice booze, candy sugar, very good.

Very good beer. It combines perfectly with chocolate to create a paradise in your mouth. Despite its price, very recommended

Bottle at a private tasting in Belgrade/Serbia. The bottle is over 2 years old, properly stored. It pours unfiltered dark brown, sediments, tan head. Nose: sweet prunes, round complexity, incredible mixture of sweet and dry fruit. UNIQUE! Mouth: balanced complexity of molasses, soft, easy to drink but extremely complex.

(Bottle from sister-in-law’s wedding) Dark chestnut body with a huge, fluffy beige head; minimal lace. Aroma is complex fruit, dark; alcohol, spices, oak, vanilla. Full, creamy body; very smooth, velvety mouthfeel; feels perfect. Flavor of fruity yeast, wood, vanilla; sweet, mild spices, and warming alcohol.

Strong yeast aroma. Dadels and raisins is present, also dark syrup. Really complex taste with lots of dried fruit, syrup, liquorice and dark malts. Long aftertaste, pleasent carbonation.
