Cervesa molt dolça, es recorden molt els tocs a caramel i a sucre morè, té tocs a espècies. Cerveza muy dulce, se recuerdan mucho los toques a caramelo y a azúcar moreno, tiene toques a especias.

jsporrer (417) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2016
Sample from HO1K. Pours a medium caramel brown with an off-white thin head of foam. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Tastes of berry juice and caramel with a hint of cinnamon and spices. Very smooth. Hides the alcohol very well. Pleasant and enjoyable. Not the best I’ve had but I’d drink it again.

Bière brune assez foncée, rouge-orangée à la lumière, moyennement voilée, effervescence élevée, et surmontée d’un col brunâtre assez large, bien dense, mousseux et persistant. Arômes principalement sucrés et fruités, caramel, cassonade, cola, avec un évident raisin rouge, tendance cerise noir et prune. Aussi, effluves de levure belge typique, quelques esters fruités (banane, poire…), et un peu de phénols épicés (surtout du poivre…). On note quelques autres épices au nez (piment de la Jamaïque, muscade…) et un petit houblon qui semble principalement herbacé (gazon, herbes aromatiques, feuille verte…). Nez agréable, très belle complexité, intensité moyenne. En bouche, pétillement assez élevé sur la langue, breuvage mousseux, onctuosité moyenne au palais. Au goût, sucre brun (caramel, cassonade, cola…), fruits foncés (raisin, cerise, prune…), levure belge plus présente en bouche qu’au nez, esters fruités (surtout de le poire…), saveur de pomme assez présente, beaucoup d’épices en bouche (clou de girofle, poivre, piment de la Jamaïque, muscade…), alcool évident quoique tout de même bien intégré. Bière laissant une impression très chaleureuse en bouche due aux saveurs épicées et alcoolisées, houblon plutôt subtil, à peine un petit goût herbacé et aromatique lors d’une finale principalement épicée et alcoolisée. Bon goût, complexité très intéressante, intensité significativement plus élevée en bouche par rapport au nez. Bière fort chaleureusement qui atteint pleinement son objectif de «bière d’hiver» quoique je l’aurais peut-être préféré un peu moins agressive sur le plan de l’alcool. Très bonne bière!

Bobson (58) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2016
Bottle at home shared with Thompson. Medium size head and dark brown color. Smell is rather hoppy with a little bit of sweetness. Taste gives the same hops mixed with caramel and burned something. Fine beer overall, just a bit shallow in its palate.

Beachmaster (358) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 18, 2016
Bottle into a tulip. Pours a deep brown, with a medium khaki head that persists and leaves good lacing. Nose is licorice and spices, mainly nutmeg. Taste is caramel and chocolate, with some licorice and fig. Well balanced, smooth, with a moderately creamy mouth feel and a long finish. Well made winter warmer.

Bottiglia da 33cl...birra di un mareone scuro, non troppo torbida, schiuma di color nocciola, molto persistente e vaporosa. All olfatto si coglie subito la fragranza di erbe fresche, al palato fesca ma decisa grazie al grado alcolemico elevato. Alla fine bella amara.
