chimaybier (50) - Redding, California, USA - AUG 22, 2008
Was given an 11.2 oz. bottle- and it’s a Friday! The pour: rich, head collapses quickly due to it’s high alochol content. The color: deep, dark, almost stoutish in color. The bouquet: very ripe plums, baker’s dark chocolate, with nice roasted malt subtleties. The palate: toasty, malty, a rich creaminess and pepperiness at the same time. (Not easy to achieve in a beer!) The finish: wonderful lingering malt finish. This is a wonderful beer. I have had their tripel, and it was fantastic as well!

Slaktmasken (64) - 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 (3036) - 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.
