sneevel (71) - - MAY 8, 2013
Pours amber brown, small head. Nice aromas of dried fruits, nuts, some chocolate. In the mouth sweet-bitter, with chocolate, hazelnut, toffe and dried frut. Good concentration with lots of nice bubbles. A nicely put together abbey style brew.

larsga (6544) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2015
Biggish pale brown head. Clear reddish brown body with lots of little particles. Fruity bubblegum aroma with spicy licorice and herbs notes. Sweetish, and somewhat dry, seeds of paradise and fruit taste with bubblegum notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, airy bubbly mouthfeel. Sweetish spicy herbal licorice aftertaste with roasty earthy notes. A sting of alcohol lingers. A really odd beer. It in no way defends the 12% alcohol. (0.33l bottle, I forget where from.)

nanonut (1) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 2, 2015 does not count
One of my favorite beers. Hoppy and malty, hard to describe, but I feel they mixed it perfectly.

futre7 (158) - Taipei, TAIWAN - APR 29, 2015
Pours dark amber brown with a fine bubbling head. Surprised it was so carbonated given its a strong ale. Nose is caramel and alcohol. Mouthfeel is fizzy and dry. The taste is a lot like many strong ales. Dark fruit, burnt hops and a hint of port. The alcohol is definitely apparent but not in a bad way. The extra carbonation inspires you to leave it for a few minutes which opens up the flavour a little. Not bad at all, but at 12% you can only have a couple.

susonagger (62) - spain, - APR 26, 2015
NOTA DE CATA: - Aspecto: De color marrón oscuro y una amarga espuma densa, cremosa y duradera. - Aroma: Esta cerveza tiene un olor dulzón, pero marcado por sus 12º de alcohol. - Cuerpo/sabor: El inicio del trago es acaramelado, pero pasa rápidamente al amargor propio del alcohol, para finalmente dejar un regusto suave y dulce en la boca. De mucho cuerpo y textura cremosa.

Nische (1102) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2015

Marduk (3544) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 10, 2015
330ml bottle. Clear dark chestnut color. Small size, brown head, stays. Plums, dark fruits, caramel, malty, sweet notes in aroma. Sweet, caramel, alcohol, flowers, dark fruits in taste. Daffodil and caramel in aftertaste. Medium body. Alcohol disappears later or my mouth turns numb can’t really tell.

Slaktmasken (65) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2015
750ml flaska som jag fick av en god vän. Trevlig mörkbrun/röd kulör. Söt smak av torkad frukt som kamouflerar alkoholen på ett bra sätt.

kerenmk (3050) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 7, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting at troubles’ place. Murky dark brown with a beige head. Sugary, some burn caramel aroma, sugary and very sweet taste. I really only tasted sugar. Fuzzy, medium body, unpleasing alcoholic aftertaste.
