NordicV (1158) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2013
Gyllenbrun öl, nästan utan skum. Doft av jäst, blommig, lätt pepprig och lite tuggummi. Kola och maltighet i smaken, lätt funkightet. Bittermandel i eftersmaken.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Bottle from Corks and Kegs on 02/06/2011. Slightly hazy golden body with a medium creamy white head. Sweet fruit, spice, caramel and floral aroma. Sweet fruit flavor with some spice, pale malt and caramel. Medium body with moderately high carbonation.

blklab2007 (1964) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Bottle as an extra. Pour has a deep brown color with patches of white foam and a still look in the glass. Aroma has dark fruit, sweet malt, caramel, and oxidation. I think this bottle may have matured for quite a while after the initial 15 weeks. Mouth feel is medium and there is basically no carbonation. Flavor is heavy to the malted side, dark fruit, heavy yeast, and a lingering finish.

biereflaneuse (22) - Certaldo, ITALY - AUG 22, 2013
Still, I do not know how to enjoy Demon Hunter. The road is long and harsh, but this beer’s earthy, yeasty character is sometimes overwhelming; a profound warming sensation is not enough to classify it as a satisfying strong ale. Nose is usually messy, taste is sweet and dirty. Like "Rurale" I usually find this overcharged by yeast character.

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - AUG 10, 2013
10/08/2013 Ma che siete venuti a fa (tap). Arancia leggermente torbida, schiuma bianca pannosa, non molto persistente. Al naso sentori di lieviti, zucchero di canna, spezie e luppolo, magnifica! In bocca ha un bellissimo equilibrio tra l’attacco dolciastro maltato e il finale amaro lungo e pulito. Corpo medio, carbonazione media, grande beva. Eccellente belgian strong ale, Montegioco si conferma su standard altissimi!

jbruner (2316) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Pours a hazy gold from the bomber with thin white head and no lacing to speak of. Aroma of bready grain, funky yeast, and citrus. Taste is sweet caramel malt, peppery notes, and funkiness. Weird but good.

emacgee (4024) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Vendor sampling on this one, rough description. Soft copper brown pour. Malt forward and bready in the nose and slightly candy-ish. Some umami and light toffee flavors come through as well. In general this one was pretty muted and singular, although not unpleasant

Strepitosa, non so come altro definirla!
