Fashawn (67) - Montesarchio, ITALY - SEP 19, 2014
Bellissimo l’aroma della birra, per la varietà di odori che si percepiscono. Dall’odore della prugna secca, a quello della cannella, passando per la liquirizia ed il coriandolo oltre che il lievito. La birra è color ebano, con una schiuma persistente che però non sembra particolarmente compatta. Ma è soffice, ed abbastanza voluminosa. La birra è impenetrabile. Il sapore è amarognolo, si sente la prugna ma soprattutto la liquirizia. Sulla lingua inizialmente ha un gran bell’impatto. Carbonatazione media, corpo medio ma tendende allo scarso, giusto però per nascondere l’alcool che arriva alla fine. Il sapore finale è di prugne secche leggermente amaricanti, con la punta di liquirizia. Caldo ma non lunghissimo il finale, almeno all’inizio . continuando la birra diviene migliore. Il sapore è splendido, caldissimo e dolce prima del finale abboccato quasi amaricante. Il bello della bevuta è che il sorso è pastoso, pieno. La bocca ringrazia.

HammerTroll (493) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 15, 2014
Clear brown color, big off-white head. Unpleasant fig aroma. Also strong fig taste, figs, figs, figs, some dark fruit, caramel and marzipan. And figs. Medium body, average carbonation. Marzipan was interesting part, but I really don’t like figs.

Donkerbruin met creme kraag. Geur is niet heel sterk. Zoet heeft wel de boventoon. Ook in de smaak voornamelijk zoet. Licht zuurtje bij de afdronk. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Calisky (724) - ALSACE, FRANCE - SEP 2, 2014
Couleur brune très sombre, fort col de mousse beige. Nez de figue, fruits noirs, malt, cassonade. Gout de prune, sucre candy, malt d’orge, fruits secs, sucre de canne, note houblonné. Corps leger et rond en bouche. Pas mal!

veceo (525) - CROATIA - AUG 31, 2014
Very dark brown color with reddish hue, huge off white head. Aroma of figs, malts, brown sugar, honey. Medium to full body, average carbonation. Medium sweet taste. Not bad, but not my cup of tea also.

slowrunner77 (2029) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Darker pour. Shows little alcohol. Aroma and flavor of anise, yeast and light spices. Every so slightly fruity (orange). Light, dry body. Not too shabby...."

Kita (1080) - Koper, SLOVENIA - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Murky dark brown color with medium frothy light brown color, nice lacing and sparkling appearance. Aroma of caramel, dried fruits, medicines, yeast and honey. Taste starts with sweet and rich toasted and mildly roasted malt, follows refreshing yeasty and dried fruit’s acidity, warming alcoholic mouthfeel and mild bitter finish. Full body, thick texture and fizzy natural carbonation. Classy strong Belgian ale...

Alengrin (1742) - BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2014
The heaviest and most interesting of the Floreffe range, with thick, yellow beige, moussy head and very dark brown colour, almost blackish, with wine-red hue. Malty and fruity aroma with spices, impressions of chocolate, caramel, banana, apple, passion fruit, coffee grounds, coriander, cloves, cinnamon, orange peel, port wine, hazelnut paste, honey, marzipan, cream. Full malty taste with dry coriander effect that will accompany the entire palate, finish a chicory kind of bitterishness, bit roasted, as well as warming, gin-like alcohol. Scotch-style ale.

De lekkerste van de floreffe-bieren, een aanrader voor mensen die van een donker bier met een heel complexe volle smaak houden
