Leighton (16259) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2015
Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Paul. Pours clear copper with a big, foamy beige head. The nose has some ripe, almost rotten fruits, berries, dates. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with lots of bready, some tangy plum, mellow earth, raisins, faint metal. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Warming finish with tangy, ripe berries, rich bread, more plum. Fine.

Scopey (10637) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2015
Bottle for dirt cheap shared at Leighton’s. It pours clear deep mahogany brown with a thick beige head. The nose is sweet, candied action, dark fruit, toasty brown sugar and sweet roast. The taste is sweet, roasty, candy sugar, light metallic twang, dark fruits, plum, raisin, light spice and earth with a dry, toasty finish. Medium body and high carbonation. Ides a very well, but there ain’t much to it.

Nostradamus led with a carmelized brown sugar aroma, had a thin, light golden colored head, and the taste was a moderate to bold malty flavor - this beer is not too sweet or syrupy. Excellent paired with french onion soup.

Un belle arôme qui annonce la couleur ;) Une robe sombre avec de beaux reflets cuivrés. Quant au goût on a tout de suite une belle saveur qui s’étend sur le palais. Une très bonne bière.

DrSilverworm (9438) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2015
4oz on tap at Brass Tap - U Square. Clear red brown color. Thin, sort of light khaki head. Leaves good full, thicker lace. Bigger cherry aroma up front, and dark fruit. Some toasty mustiness. Touch of chocolate. Lightly spicy. Moderate to bigger sweet taste. Nice mild bitterness -- it’s presence it’s nice, this beer is not too sweet and syrupy, with a dry finish, but is somewhat mildly medicinally astringent. Medium to bigger body. Kind of slick. Sold belgian strong ale.

bartzluke (482) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 9, 2015
10 oz pour from room-temp bottle into tulip glass. Ruby/light brown, fairly opaque, moderate head. Nose is nuts, mulch, dark malt, and caramel. Taste has lots of caramel sweetness with a woody dirt taste. Nuts too. Pretty alright.

Alusmamuts (1242) - LATVIA - MAY 3, 2015
Dark brown with medium beige head. Rich deep taste with certain viney sourness, some roasted bitterness, hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste.

cards04 (2510) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 29, 2015
What a fantastic Belgian ale. Pours a murky brown colour. Aromas are vinous, dark fruit, sherry, tart cherries. Flavours mimic aromas. Sweet, tangy, boozy. Wonderful stuff.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2015 Compra: www.cervezasespeciales.com Opinión: Quizas la botella que tome estaba en mal estado, pues era la ultima que quedaba en la tienda y tenía etiqueta algo despegada. Defraudo mis expectativas aunque tampoco era infame

phaleslu (8215) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 25, 2015
Draft at the Brass Tap - U Square. Pours a cloudy amber with a moderate khaki head that heavily laces the glass and leaves a film atop the beer. Everything about this seems old. Notes of cardboard, muddled fruits (banana, apple, plum, berry), caramel, brown sugar, and mild spice. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a fruity, sweet, estery, imbalanced mouthfeel. Not my thing. Doesn’t work for me at all.
