(bottle, 33cl) Clear, reddish amber colour with a firm medium-sized tanned foamy head. Moderately piney and slightly citric hoppy aroma with notes of dark malt, caramel and liquorice. Bitter and moderately sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a soft carbonation. Dark malt character with caramel, liquorice, accompanied by piney and mildly fruity hops; present dark malty sweetness towards the moderately fruity and bitter hoppy finish with warming alcoholic notes. Not the best ASA, but nevertheless a pleasant Ale. 20.X.12

jawlo (122) - Katowice, POLAND - JUL 15, 2015
Aromat: słodkie dojrzałe banny, suszone owoce, karmel, tosty, korzenie. Wygląd: barwa rubinowa, piana średnio obfita. Smak: poteżna słodycz w postaci rodzynek, bananów i karmelu z tostami z lekkim posmakiem korzenym, niestety wychodzi alkohol na finiszu, gorczka trochę za niska. Odczucie w ustach: gęste i lepkie, nasycenie niskie. Ogólne wrażenie: piwo dobre, bardzo aromatyczne, jednak w smaku przydałoby się więcej kontry w postaci goryczki, na minus również należy zaliczyć ujawniający się alkohol. Mocno degustacyjne.

Aurelius (4651) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Muddy, tea brown. Large khaki head, standard 11.2oz bottle with a merely-functional label. Buttery, caramel, tangy aroma. Very sweet, orangey, pith-bitter. Highly malty, and pretty much barleywine. Mouthy. Lots of citrus rind in the finish. Thanks to Triock.

karpik (240) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUL 3, 2015
Aroma of caramel, Belgian yeast. Dark brown colour with white head. Taste is too sweet for me with punch of alcohol at the beginning (after that is not disturbing), some citrus and spice notes are also here, but caramel sweetness dominates. Overall not bad, but not really good.

ElManana (1086) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2015
Draft at Jopenkerk. Very boozy, oily, malts, caramel, some tropical fruits, and quite bitter. Nice strong ale, not my style.

Aroma: malts, floral, citrus, toffee and alcohol. First idea was black-ipa-ish. Taste: citrus, sour fruits (LaTrappeQuad-ish). Decent beer.
