bhensonb (12016) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 7, 2007
The aroma is something of a whisky malt, reminiscent of Adelscott. Very dark ripe fruit color with beige head that ringed rapidly. Medium body. Creamy carbonation. Flavor of ripe fruit, including some strawberry. It then moves to gritty malt, coffee, and some light bitter. The alcohol can be sensed. It’s absolutely delicious.

Koelschtrinker (11987) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Getrunken beim 1. BTO-Treffen und ergänzt durch einen Neutest am 19.10.2008: Sehr prickelndes Bier, der Alkohol ist gschickt hinter Aromen verborgen. Im weiteren Verlauf dezent würzig, dabei im Nachgeschmack noch aromatischer werdend. Ergänzungen 2008: Ds Bier ist leider nicht so komplex wie das La Chouffe, bietet aber trotzdem eien ausreichende Anzahl an Aromen. Die Malzigkeit ist durchlässrig für andere Aromen, so kommt der leichte Hopfen durchaus zum Tragen. Im Abgang stark Malzig-würzig. Test vom 30.12.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,11,10,12,11 - 11,00
