BlackHaddock (6351) - Shropshire, - MAY 8, 2012
500ml bottle, best before November 2007, drank in June 2007. I chose this beer (from my stash) because I had some Chilli Edam cheese my wife had bought for my Belgian beer night and I wouldn’t let her serve it because it would have ruined the tastebuds of everyone. I wanted to eat the cheese with a beer that would complement each other. My review is for the beer before I started eating the chilli cheese, although I enjoyed it more washing down the biscuits and cheese. Poured into my Gordon’s Finest Gold thistle glass, it looks great. Dark with an off white head. The aroma is of sweet malts, the taste is weak and thin, so too the mouthfeel. I thought this might be disappointing, I wasn’t mistaken, it will help wash down the chilli cheese.

Fules (795) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - SEP 15, 2016
Hatalmas, rendkívül tartós, bézs színű hab, barna szín. Karamelles, aszalt gyümölcsös illat. Íze enyhén karamelles, fűszeres. Könnyű, enyhén kesernyés, közepesen szénsavas. Van valami karcos, fűszeres mellékíze, ami elrontja.

micia600 (58) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 1, 2016
Piwo barwy czarnej (pod światło widać wyraźne czerwone przebłyski), klarowne, piana średnio obfita, beżowa, zostawia koronkę. W aromacie czuć głównie paloność i lekką karmelową słodycz, co sugeruje, że piwo będzie słodkie, jednak słodkie nie jest. W smaku wytrawne, najbardziej wyraźna jest paloność i lekko czuć nutę zbliżoną do żelaza od palonych słodów. Generalnie piwo poprawne, jednak przez niski ekstrakt brakuje nieco ciała.
