3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy amber colour, with a small head that fades soon. Aroma of chocolate, figs, notes of ginger, pepper, spices, wood and alcohol (sake I guess, if you read the deScription). Medium creamy and sticky body. Palate has chocolate, spices, a hot touch, maybe of pepper, brandy (sake) flavour. Really good.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Honey and caramel notes throughout, alchohol finish. Thin, which is not a bad thing giving a cleaner less sticky finish than many barleywines. Gentle flavors which gets a little overwhelmed by the alchohol. Not bad at all, wouldnít seek this out but would gladly drink it anytime.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle bb11/2015, merci calisky. Quite a unique blend of Belgian yeast-powered chestnut caramels, apricot peel, fig jam and earth and more straightforward Doppelbock-style malteser sweetness emanate from aroma and in taste. Also some sake, almost jenever-like spirit in the nose. Sweetness in taste is well quenched by the dry sake barrel, making for an interesting sipper but not an instant crossover favourite, as I find the whole to deliver less than I expect from a 8% ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle from Saveur-biere.com. Pours a deep brown with minimal off-white head. Sweet malt aroma. Not much of the Belgian Dark Ale remaining, coming off more like a boozy 14% barley wine in terms of slick mouthfeel and taste than an 8% Belgian beer. Ok, but wasnít in the mood for a barley wine tonight!

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
히타치노 네스트 브루어리 - 엑스트라 하이 8% ABV 군더더기 없이 말끔히 정제된 벨지안 스트롱 에일. 같은 계열의 맥주에서 쉽게 나오는 네거티브한 맛을 모두 쳐낸 맥주.소츄 케스크에서 3개월간 숙성시켰다고.
누런 거품, 어두운 갈색 침전물. 무겁진 않지만 밀키함, 초콜릿, 얼핏도는 한약제의 향, 지나치게 달지도 않다. 8% 맥주에서 이정도로 스무스한 편안함 뽑아내는것도 능력.

Bottle from Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Murky Amber colour with small white head. Aroma of figs and bread. Taste is dry and bitter with nice spice from the alcohol. Carbonation is quite prickly and body surprisingly light. Enjoyed it, but had better.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tan-amber color, dense ivory froth.
Intense honey liqueur aroma, and a tinge of chocolate.
Soft and gentle in spite of its high alcohol contents. Sweet and creamy texture. Rather short finish.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is lighter berry. Cranberry raspberry. A little oak... A little sweet like a maple.
Pours reddish orange brown. Minimal head.
Taste is light..... Subtle. Dry. Juniper. Like a champagne yeast dryness. Like pine tips.
Palate is smooth dry. So dry! Bubbly. Boozy. But not bad smooth.
Overall this is a beer I enjoyed drinking but would not buy again. The tastes are very subtle. The pine note is huge but itís not sappy pine like an IPA: itís earthy pine like juniper. Interesting. More than anything I had the thought man I donít buy these because theyíre $5 and thatís expensive. But then I thought thatís only a $10 bomber... Thank you for being in 12o bottles. :)
