EHouse (170) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Pours a deep ebony with a finger of java head. Aromas of sweet aspartame, caramel, figs, rosemary,alcohol, and a hint of thyme. Big mother of a body that is syrupy sweet, with flavors of black licorice, rosemary, black pepper, and caramelized honey. This is a fantastic food beer but on its own it severely surpasses a sipping beer. It’s a bit thick, syrupy, sweet, and the alcohol keeps your tongue tingly. However, pour this into some sugar and caramelized onions or pair it with some intense smoked meat (lamb!) or a seriously sharp aged gouda or blue cheese.

GTAEgeek (1502) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 28, 2015
Sample at Taps. Pours dark, muddy brown, with a big, fluffy, tan head. The nose is raisins, molasses, lots of cinnamon, currants, and brown bread. Very sweet up front, with a good amount of spice to the finish. Medium body, effervescent and almost airy, smooth, and clean through the finish. This is a lovely, strong, flavorful, and thoroughly unique beer.

Thisis12ptfont (997) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Aromas of funky yeast, dark malt funk, roasted molasses, belgian yeast, tar, strong herbal rosemary, rose petal,yeast twang and barnyard funk. Appears black with lively carbonation. Taste is big dark malt funk, dark yeast esters, expired chocolate, huge Belgian yeast twang and grassy, barnyard esters upfront. Rosemary, lemongrass, carbonated dark malts, thick syrupy, honey, molasses-like malts dominate mid palate. Lime, rosemary, thyme, grass, lime leaves, funky Belgian yeast, funky chocolate malts linger on the finish as well as harsh booziness. Overall, this is a complete mess. They tried to bite far more than they could chew and this is just terrible. Every single flavor that hits my palate wants nothing to do with the other. It falls apart in every aspect. Huge disappointment.

Flaska från Carftbeer/Galatea. Smak och doft av torkad frukt, stora och söta smaker med toner av jäst och kryddor, framförallt rosmarinen, kraftfull med fina smaker.

Vignale (2576) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2015
Flaska från Carftbeer/Galatea. Stor söt och viss likhet med quadrupeln som säkert är basen. Bretten märks inte mycket men kryddorna och framför allt rosmarinen är tydlig jämte vad som känns som halva kryddhyllan i salig blandning vilket blir aningen för mycket. Men det är gott till ost och LA har en väldigt hög lägsta nivå.
