Bamsen78 (4395) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy darkish amber wi small off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit, with notes of caramel and touches of hops. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt, fruit and yeast, with bitter, hoppy notes. Bittersweetish aftertaste. Decent, if not luxury.

adrie (1) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2015 does not count
Bruin biertje, beetje weinig karakter. Nogal dun. Wellicht te koud geserveerd maar ook na wat wachten geen topper

SkillsFactory (179) - ITALY - APR 15, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2015 Color mogano scuro con riflessi rossastri, bassa persistenza della schiuma, di color beige chiaro. Aroma: esteri fruttati (uva passa, frutti rossi, pera e banana matura), spezie e caramello, cacao, note oleose. Palato: Corpo medio-pieno, carbonatazione medio-alta, alcol ben nascosto, uva passa, caramello, frutti rossi, malti tostati e finale amaro. Retrogusto dolce smorzato dall'amaro finale, dopo qualche secondo l'alcol "di ritorno" scalda la bevuta. Di facile beva, una buona Dubbel.

Butelka, warka do 11.09.15. BardzWysoka, kremowa piana, opadajaca w ten elgijski sposob, coraz wieksze pecherzyki. Zostajaca na szkle. Samo piwo bardziej w brazowych tonach niz wiekszosc dubli majacych w sobie cos z odcieni czerwieni, leciutko metnawe, ciemne. Aromat nie jakis bardzo intensywny, bardziej slodowy niz owocowy, choc jedno i drugie na miejscu. czuc nieco alkoholu, w typie nalewki na wisniach. bakalii niewiele. czuc nieco tez drozdzowych aromatow, ale nie tyle drozdze rodem z belgii, co drozdze rodem z kuchni, spozywcze - dosc zaskakujaca, ale wcale nie jakas niesympatyczna nuta. jest tez przyprawowosc piprzowo-kolendrowa (po ogrzaniu ie piwa - nieco za wysoka jak na moje standardy ta kolendrowosc), W smaku dosc spokojnie, lekko kwaskowato-owocowo, pikantnie-kolendrowo, goryczka dosc wysoka jak na styl, jestszcze w pewnym sensie wzmocniona alkoholem odczuwalnym lekko i wysokim wysyceniem. SUmarycznie sredniak, moze nawet ponizej... z minusem za kolendre ;)
