lownote (493) - Austin, Alabama, USA - JUL 26, 2016
Stone fruit aroma. Nearly black but red along the edges with a lace of head. Lots of yeast flavor with some tartness, spices, and big cherry flavors. Wine like body. Barely carbed. Pretty dry but has a woodiness I often associate with sweetness. Sort of red wine or bourbony.

gEUS (1702) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 12, 2016
large bottle at home... strange: when cold head is thick and creamy, when open for +/- an hour and at room temperature, it pours flat like a pancake. Carbo remains lively. Very cloudy dark brown with an amber greyish hue. Intense spiced nose, dates, figs, some fortified wine alcohol scent. Medium body. Fairly high on alcohol. Taste is roasted malts, rhum drenched raisins, slight caramel. Alcohol burn in the finish. Powerful beer. Winter Warmer.

butelka, warka z 2015. taka sobie piana na brazowo-miedzianym, przeswitujacym w zwezeniach piwie. aromaty bardzo bogate, od nieco czekoladowych, przez ciasto, przyprawowosc (zlozona i silna, wlacznie z rozmarynem, wanilia, jakimis ziolowymi nalecialosciami, anyzkiem, moze nawet - na szczescie w tle dalekim - kolendra), przez intensywne rodzynki, mocna owocowosc (suszone sliwki, wisnie, kandyzowane figi), via karmel po alkohol, calkiem szlachetny a la porto. Aromat zapowiadal ulepek, i piwo jest slodkie, ale nieprzesadnie. srednio wysycone, troszke lepkie, umiarkowanie pelne, z zaznaczona goryczka nieco ziolowa w wydzwieku, dosc dlugimi alkoholowo-rodzynkowo-owocowymi posmakami. Jedno z tych piw. co jak patrze na powyzszy opis, to sobie mysle, ze to ni cholery nie oddaje wlasciwej palety tego, co pije - chyba kwestia w takiej a nie innej palecie, akcentach... generalnie - chyba pierwszy BDSA zza wielkiej wody, ktory nie ustepuje najlepszym z ojczyzny. klasa.
