Onionkid (371) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle. Aroma is of yeast and fruit. Flavor is similar but also with caramel and spice. Doesn’t have much of an alcohol burn that I would expect from something that tastes like this. I read a review that said it was "complex, yet boring". That’s so completely apt. This was 5 bucks for a bottle, so I’ve got to say there’s no way I’ll be grabbing this again all things considered. But it does have a solid amount of alcohol (even if it could’ve been more)! And I still say it’s actually very, very good! I just feel like maybe there was some lost potential here, should’ve been a much bigger beer. 9% abv.

Tognetta (388) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JUL 2, 2015
Coloração entre marrom e vinho, espuma de fácil formação e bastante duradoura, carbonatação visível e "viva" no copo. Aroma adocicado, uva passa, framboesa, mas um leve toque de vinagre que diminuiu um pouco com o tempo (talvez esteja vencida, não foi possível ver a data no rotulo). Paladar trás novamente frutas escuras, corpo licoroso, carbonatação média, álcool aparente um pouco acima do desejável. Aftertaste adocicado e persistente, mas mediano em qualidade. Pretendo experimentar novamente porque tem sinais de estar fora do padrão.

Rubin77 (164) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 16, 2015
F: pale brown head. C: murky hazy red brown. A: dark malty, port wine, dates, honey, chocolate, a lot of dark sweet caramel malt, alcohol and faint earthy mushroom and yeast aromas. T: remind of Struise Pannepot, full caramel body, low carbonation, porto like taste with a lot of plums, cherry, caramel, dark fruits, chocolate, a hints of coffee, raisins, wood, lemon, anyway great beer and surprisingly found in Carrefour express beyond the corner just for 1,6e, recommend to taste.

jamaty (1338) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Color y aspecto de cafe con leche. Bastante opaca y con grandes trozos de sedimento. Buen aroma, caramelo, ciruelas... Muy potente en boca con gran densidad y un sabor complejo que recuerda caramelo, café, regaliz, y frutas rojas. Final potente y alcoholico.

Theydon_Bois (12869) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle split at LKS skyline, thanks to Soapey, 27/05/15. Chestnut brown/amber with a big old light beige cap. Nose is sweet, candied almonds, caramel, light yeast, dark fruit rinds. Taste comprises sweet licks, caramel, dates, fruit cake, yeast. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok Belgo, drinks below its ABV but a little overly sweet for me.
