UPDATED: APR 9, 2016 Grata sorpresa. De barril en Chinanski. Para mi a caballo entre una Amber ale clásica y una Belga triple, la malta tostada y caramelo tienen bastante predominio, pero las levaduras belgas están ahí, puntito sour. De cuerpo es ligera, casi de más... Alcohol bien integrado. Fácil de beber. Aunq es bastante compleja.

Bozo_skeleton (933) - Grenoble, FRANCE - APR 4, 2016
Cuivrée, bonne carbo, petit liseret de bulles. Aromes puissants, pruneaux, caramel, légèrement boisés. Toujours les fruits noirs en bouche, une rondeur bien présente mais la carbo fine viens tout de même alléger la sensation. Longueur sur le caramel.

ttutony (831) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2016
Hazy amber color with a tan head. Aroma is of dried fruits, almost wine-like. Fairly strong aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, well-integrated. Some toasty malt, a little sweetness. Interesting contributions from the casks, just a subtle woodiness in the background and on the finish.

eduardovl (1306) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 16, 2016
355ml bottle served in a ordinary glass. Pours a cloudy amber color forming a medium creamy but not very persistent head that leaves very few spotty lacings in the glass. Nose is great: Strong sweert malts and dark fruit notes. Notes of oak, toffee, caramel malts and candy sugar. Light sour notes in the nose. Taste is sweet. Strong notes of caramel and crystal malts. Oak, dark dry fruits. Slightly sour notes. Great combination. Great bittersweet balance. Heavy body. Medium to low carbonation. Sweet and slightly sour and fruity aftertaste. Again, oak notes. Good drinkability. Great Strong beer. Quite well done.

Bov (11698) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 29, 2016
from Bier-Bienne - hazy dark amber-orange beer with a little persistent beige foam; strong aroma of wood and caramel, gently oaky, dried figs; fairly sweet, full-bodied, long notes of ripe fruits, caramel and more woody tones - good yet too sweet for me

Lodgewick (62) - Finland, Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2016
330ml bottle at home. Dark amber, hazy with yeast, light beige head. Aroma is dark fruit, belgi yeast and sweet bread. Taste is sweet malts, some fruit and overwhelming medicine bitterness. Surprisingly strong taste with some alcohol. Medium palate. Could be a bit sweeter.

symmetric (71) - - JAN 10, 2016
Nose is rich, carameley, slightly boozy. Smells like it is going to be a full-bodied beer, but surprisingly is medium-light. The body is perhaps a bit thin to carry the spirit character.

bewyder (350) - FRANCE - JAN 8, 2016
Ambrée cuivrée, corps assez dense, notes fruits mûrs et léger caramel, petite rondeur et amertume, pointe sèche, un poil lourde sur la longueur. Une bière très intéressante. Bouteille 33cl achetée chez Intercaves, Noisy-le-Grand, France, bue le 18/12/2015.

mutz (836) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2016
Tap@ Valencia on Tap. Roodbruin, crêmige kraag. Doet me qua geur en smaak aan een Belgische roodbruin denken. Hout, kersen, zoetig maar dan weer weinig zuur. Weinig diepgang ook..... helaas.
