Cybion (91) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle, 330 ml. Pours murky brown/red, hint of gold perhaps. Minimal head, off-white when present. Good lacing. Pungent, smokey nose with a good dose of molasses or muscavado, honey and bread. Alcohol is quite prominent; little bit of a nose burn perhaps. Distance spices and dark fruits Taste isn’t as sweet as expected, with few notes initially (just a bit of honey and dark fruit maybe) but a good deal of wholemeal bread and other cereals emerging later. Gets quite bitter on the long finish with small coffee notes coming around, along with darker malts. Bitter notes linger for a while. Alcohol isn’t detectable, unlike on the nose. Dark malt and coffee notes are very subtle in the mix compared to how they might be in a stout, but definitely detectable. Do wish there was more going on upfront however. Palate is innofensive with moderate carb and a decent smooth, medium body. Refreshing to an extent. Quite good overall though I prefer my strong dark belgians to be a little more upfront and complex.

Slightly hazy copper, small, airy offwhite head. Malty aroma with dried fruit notes and alcohol. Fruity, acetic flavour, apples and berries. Caramely maltyness as well. Creamy, fluffy mouthfeel. Nice.

Bottle @ The Unholy Trinity Meets Again, Sønderborg. Pours cloudy dark copper brown with airy beige head. Clear aroma of yeast, malt and caramel. Bitter, hoppy flavour with sweetish notes of caramel malt and yeast. Fruity hints. Estery and acetic aftertaste. Warming alcohol presence. Decent

rami_pl (311) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 7, 2015
Butelka, warka do 10 2016. Piwo z kiepska dosc i blyskawicznie znikajaca piana - tylko lekko brudzacy szklo pierscionek zostaje. Brazowo-robinowe, ciemne, klarowne. Aromat intensywne owoce - zarowno swieze jak i suszone (sliwki, rodzynki, figi), dosc intensywny alkohol, miod gryczany, skorka od chleba, karmel. Smak nie oddaje tego wszystkiego zbyt wiernie - czuc lekka slodkosc o karmelowym charakterze, troche alkoholu, dosc wysoka jak na styl goryczke. w Posmakach pojawiaja sie jakies nuty czekoladowe. Malo ciala, srednie wysycenie - nie jest to zle piwo, niemniej pozostawia niedosyt, zwlaszcza po faktycznie obiecujacym aromacie

ninecats (285) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle at Turisten, Ljungskile. Pours clear deep ruby red with a massive dirty white head, dissipating quite fast leaving massive lacings. Complex aroma, with roasted notes, caramell, coffee, also a slight fruitiness with hints of red berries, yeast and an earthiness. Taste is beautifully balanced with roasted notes, caramell, coffee, nuts, yeast, raspberries, bubble gum, finishes quite dry and bitter. Medium body, medium carbo, slight sticky texture. Very good, very nice balance.
