mike_77 (3718) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - SEP 11, 2011
Golden blond colour. Medium bodied, quite smooth and creamy texture. Low carbonation. Well balanced flavour of grains and sweetness. The pleasure comes from the mouthfeel not so much from the flavour.

MrChopin (3575) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Opaque dark gold, thin small bubbled white head. Creamy lactic grain in the nose, sweetness from some candi sugar. Flavor is more fruity with some lemon and lime, nearing dessert tartness, and a bit of grass as dry balance. Soft and undercarbonated with a short finish.

FatPhil (10083) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 4, 2011
330ml bottle (Bierkompass.de)
6 On pouring, smells very yeasty, in the glass, it’s quite sharp and almost sour. Behind that there’s some sweetness and a hint of dark sticky fruit
3 Pale orange, small tight head.
7 Very spicy and liquoricy in the mouth, with some of the sharp hints towards sourness still there but no actual sourness.
3 Smooth palate, decent carbonation. Plenty of hoppy bitterness that leaves quite a tingle. However, there’s also a bit of kidney and gravy finish, alas.
13 Quite imposing bitter strong ale, has a lot of potential, but showing a few flaws.
