Moravius (1130) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2016 Flasche (33 cl) von Jenny Lou’s Sanlitun Store, Peking. - Goldbraun, leicht trüb, dunkler Schaum. - Nase angenehm herbfruchtig-karamelmalzwürzig mit unbestimmter Gewürznote und herber Frucht. - Antrunk süß und schwer karamelmalzig mit würziger, schwerer Malzbittere. Anklänge an Lakritz, gebrannte Mandeln und überreife Banane. Erinnert an gebrannten Zucker, dabei nicht zu süß. Im Hintergrund leichte Hopfenherbe. Der stattliche Alkoholgehalt ist gut kaschiert. Dominierend bis in den Abgang bleibt der reiche Geschmack von gebranntem Zucker. - Eine echte Malzbombe von wuchtiger Fülle, auf eigene Weise beeindruckend. (Verkostung: 12.8.2016.)

Tap @ Fermentoren Aarhus. Aroma of caramel and overripe fruity esters, vinous. Clear brown amber with white head, mostly diminishing. Taste is moderate sweet and light bitter. More fruity caramel. Full body, oily feel, sweet finish.

Myonlyvice (156) - DENMARK - JUL 30, 2016
Bottle poured into the Kwak glass. Deep orange with a huge but fast dissipating head. Aroma is maybe a nit weak for a strong ale. Malt, caramel and spice. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thin. Taste is dominated by clove and malt with a real kick from the alcohol. Strong! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Quick3Beers (980) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 30, 2016
Pours a rich brown from a bottle with a thick off-white head, probably as a result of dropping the bottle before opening it. Nice caramel and home-baked bread aroma, in the mouth I pick up some butterscotch and bubblegum, dark candi sugar shines through. Slight cherry aftertaste. A little boozy, but not burn your throat boozy. Very good beer.

AleRider78 (682) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2016
330ml bottle. Poured a pretty clear amber colour, light reddish hue. Has a bit of foamy head but doesn’t last long. Aromas are very subtle, mostly dry fruits, yeast, and a bit of spices. Flavours are a bit on the smokey side, roasted malts, hints of caramel and nuts. Slight yeasty mouthfeel. Mildly bitter. Alcohol is just noticeable enough, well balanced. Average carbonation, and good lacing. Really good stuff, but will someday have to try in appropriate glass.

Deze klassieker is zeer aan te raden. Mooi bier dat nog beter smaakt uit het bijbehorende glas!

LLaurin (322) - Motala, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2016
From tap in real Kwak glass. Nice nose and appearance in dark amber and with malty notes. Taste is sweet and malty with almost raisins on the tounge. Palate is also sweet with fruityness and some very light hops.
