Butelka. Barwa ciemno-miedziana z niską, kremową pianą. Aromat rodzynek, suszonych owoców (morele, śliwki), pieprz, zioła, drożdże. W smaku podobnie, suszone owoce, melon, nuty słodowe w postaci lekkiego karmelu z delikatnie rozgrzewającym szlachetnym alkoholowym finiszem. Piwo pełne i treściwe, dobrze zbalansowane. Wysokie wysycenie, z dodatkiem średniej goryczki. Dobrze ukryty alkohol, rozgrzewa przełyk.Super piwo.

Bottle, 22oz, at the taproom. It’s a hazy dark golden to amber colored beer with a small, dense, beige head. The aroma is quite sugary and fruity, with some spiced, peachy hints. Alcohol, raisins, some booze and caramel too.It’s full bodied, warming and nicely carbonated. Semi-sticky. Booze, caramel, dried fruits, peach notes and sugar in the flavor. Some bitterness. Too sweet and boozy, but far from bad anyway. 150616

Bottle from VP CC Vest enjoyed at home
Copper / brown, beige head that falls down quite fast. Smell of marzipan, yeast esters, cherries and raisins, quite fruity, caramel, malts and hints of spices. Heavy sweet, alot of esters, fruity flavors, a little boozy kick, a fantastic malty body which delivers awsome flavors. Spices slides in after a while. Moderate bitter finish. Veyr nice!

Bottled. Pours orangy amber with a small, beige to off-white head. Aroma of caramel, yeast and ripe fruit. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry, with some alcohol and a hint of bitterness. Medium bodied, oily to syrupy texture and soft carbonation. A nice Ale, but not at all as complex as described. 🌟🌟🌟

ClubGonzo (5358) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 19, 2015
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a hazy deep nougat-hued orange body with a small white head. Nose is banana, candy sugar, caramel, white sugar and hints of clove, cinnamon, wet grass and pepper. Taste is caramel, white sugar, spices, clove, mild banana and hints of toffee, bready malts and alcohol. Full body, high carbonation. A real "big Belgian" with enough esters and candi sugar tones to kill a small Ardenne village. Bold and quite tasty, but not too subtle. A nice brew, nevertheless.
