jookos (3494) - FINLAND - MAR 5, 2013
Bottle. Reddish, hazy. Dark berry/fruity nose. Some marzipan, red currants, dark cherries, plums. Very aged aroma, with vinous tones. Body is fullish. Some murky oak, dark fruits, berries, some green apple. Yeasty esters. Very strange brew. Feels almost vinous, but with sweetish marzipan. Very flavourful though.

kraddel (4561) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2014
Bottle in my used-to-be-clean living room. Are you kidding me ???? This bitch even gushes more than their damn ’maeght van gottem ’ . And this time, lets not blame a Hopcone ( that should not be in a bottle of beer anyways , since it’s a clear invitation for infections and have been proven to cause some serious gushing ) no, this is just a proof of a bad quality in the beer, somewhere . After cleaning up the floor and couch ( thnx for that guys ) The foam had disapeared . Zero resistancy, even though the pour took 2 glasses for half the bottle ( that, BTW, kept gushing ) Smell is metallic and grainy-sweetness, as well as sugar . Overcarbonated . Taste is straight sugar - caramelly . Some earthy undertone, some bitterness . Tastewise, i’d say I like this . Even to the point of ’I really like this ’ . But lets be honoust here . Overcarbonated, simple, yet still not even free of brewing mistakes ( too much sugar in refermentation ? ) ... Its a yummy beer , with bad quality . And how the hell can I rate it high if it has low quality ? ___ otherwise, the score would be about 3,8-3,9 / 5 ___

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2008
In short: A sweet fruity roasted Belgian dark ale. A lot of stuff thrown in. Pleasant but unfocussed.
How: Bottle 330ml, probably around 6 months old
The look: Opaque brown body with a large beige head
In long: Timid nose of earthy caramel. Extra yeasty, fruity esters are all over the place (name one fruit it’s there), very dusty/rusty, burnt caramel, brown sugar and pleasant nutty notes. Taste has a lot to offer but somehow I felt it didn’t stick together and I moderately enjoyed it when focussing on the roasted nutty flavours. This is the type of beer that no two person will agree on the description... and on the pronunciation.
