Haslinger (863) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2013
pours a deep ruby brown with a frothy off white head. Simply awesome bottle shape. Kind of fruity plum taste. Not super malty. Not as good as I had hoped. probably would not buy again

Rugamu (100) - SPAIN - JUL 5, 2014
Magnífica cerveza, con tonos afrutados, un color oscuro intenso y un aroma muy penetrante. En boca entra muy suave, dejando un sabor intenso por mucho tiempo. En resumen, gran cerveza que repetiré las veces que sean necesarias.

Bottle 0.33L. Slightly hazy, brown body with reddish nuances; large, frothy, tan head, fully lasting with nice lacing. Moderate malty (caramel, light roasted) aroma, with notes of red fruits (cherry), spices, alcohol, light coffee and licorice. Moderate-to-heavy sweet flavour, with light bitterness in the finish. Light-to-medium body with watery-to-oily texture; soft carbonation; light alcoholic warming in the finish.

janubio (387) - SPAIN - JUN 23, 2014
330 ml. bottle. Brown colour with red hints when watching to the light. Huge dense head that lasts forever and marks a good lace on the glass. Smell of chocolate, dark fruits, spices, caramel, some wood character, like a port or sherry wine. Medium body, sticky and creamy palate, good carbonation. Taste of chocolate or cocoa, dark fruits, spices, caramel. A bit of an alcoholic finish.

Cerveza de abadía, con una cremosa espuma de poro amplio y de poca continuidad pero de gran belleza y coronación. Cerveza de tono rojizo, muy turbio y poca burbuja. Con el aroma a cerveza clásica y añeja, y amplios matices frutales. En boca es suave, ligeramente dulce al comienzo, el en trascurso del paladar de aprecia ligero chocolate y café oscuro y un escondido toque frutal no muy perceptible. La finalización deja un poso amargo agradable conjuntando perfectamente con el dulzor inicial, y gracias a lo bien carbonatada acepta también los momentos refrescantes, pidiendo más sorbos.

Gurthnar (1504) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle. Aroma fruity, caramel, raisins. Quite nice for a change. Light prunes. Light alcoholic. Lightly hazy brown colour. Taste is sourish, astringent, metallic, vegetal. Really a disapointment after a promising finish. Poor drinkability.

Bottle - Dark caramel almost brown color. Sweet smell to it, some sweetness to the flavor as well. Seems like a slight bourbon flavor to it. Caramel notes on the palate. Good beer to drink on a regular occasion.
