Staining and woody aroma. The nose has sweet malts. It’s flavor is a growing fruity bitterness that change to an striking strength that comes from a greater maturity. It is a full bodied beer both good and strong.

330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Hazy copper colour with a one finger off-white head. Aroma of malts, sweet caramel, dark fruit, yeast, spices. Sweet malty taste, dark fruit, hint of sake. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Decent beer.

Hazy brown colour. Aroma and flavour are definitely malt heavy with lots of caramel sweetness. Has a very full bodied feel. Nice.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Many thanks for this beer to kevnic2008. Pianka ladna spora lecz szybko opada. Ladna barwa ciemno pomaranczowa z refleksami jasnej czerwieni. Aromatyczne, glownie aronia. W smaku Deren i truskawki, bardzo owocowe, słodkawe trochę za bardzo jak dla mnie, alkohol na szczęście ukryty. Podobne do Barley Wine. Troche brakowało kontry na te slodowosc, przydalo by się więcej chmielu w smaku i kwaskowosci, no ale i tak dobre piwo. Bardzo mętne.

Nez prodigieux : Douceur, fruité, cerises, mûres, pruneau, fruits secs, miel, notes boisées, alcool, liqueur, très puissant. En bouche, on retrouve cette belle complexité, un corps bien solide, ample, alcool qui réchauffe.Bref sublime, une grande, grande bière.

Not the biggest nose; basically brown (Bourbon) biscuits, and a touch of plum. A bit more interesting once in the mouth: has the slightly chewy, sweet malt of a Belgian dubbel (a bit of dark choc at the bottom); also has something of the astringent/clean and strong backbone of a Belgian tripel. What is really nice is the kick of sake on the way out – a twist that also helps to make this stand out. Very nice.

puren (595) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - APR 16, 2016
Prezentacja:
szkło pełne drobnych farfocli, bursztynowe, piana niezbyt obfita, opada do wysepki, słabo koronkuje;
Aromat:
delikatny, słodki - syrop klonowy, cukier trzcinowy, rum, rodzynki, suszona brzoskwinia;
Odczucie:
ciało wysokie, średnio nasycone, finisz goryczkowy, rozgrzewa przełyk, lekko drętwieje język;
Smak:
bardzo słodki - za aromatem plus goryczka palonego karmelu i lekki alkohol;
Ogólnie:
nie jest złe, choć mogłoby być mniej słodkie.

Nez: Malté, raisin Bouche: Maltée, caramel, fruits noirs, raisin, sucrée, épicée Une bonne bière mais un peu trop sucrée et l’alcool trop présent à mon goût
