Bottle from Halftime. Going to compare this again in a year to compare how it ages. dark amber capped by a small silky head that only reduces slightly. Nose is malt, sugar, and yeast. Taste is burnt sugar upfront, slight biscuit, hint of dark fruit. Alchohol rears its head as this critter warms. Silky creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied.

kustie (293) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 17, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown almost opaque black color and light brown head. Aroma has sweet ripe fruits, caramel, raisins, plums. Taste is a bit sweet but ends with a quite dry and somewhat bitter aftertaste. Flavors of raisin, ripe fruits, coffee, dark chocolate, malt, toffee. Very well balanced. Excellent one.

Great example of this style. Second best behind the Westvleteren. Perhaps a toss up.

This a true gem, it has everything. Beautiful caramel color. Amazing strong vinous and dry fruits notes. full body. Sweetness and alcool perfectly balanced with all the flavours.

Cerveja marrom e turva com um creme bege e persistente. Aroma complexo com notas de frutas secas escuras, castanhas e seu alto teor alcoólico é facilmente percebido. Ao beber, uma sensação vivaz e um dulçor que finaliza secando a boca, mantendo um retrogosto agradabilíssimo. Excelente!!

Akiro (15) - ITALY - APR 12, 2015
Degustata in bottiglia da 33 centilitri. Il solo pensiero di berla ti migliora la giornata o la nottata. Impeccabile all’apparenza è altrettanto buona. Riesce a mascherare gli ultimi di 11 gradi e rotti egregiamente, se ne bevi solo una... :) marrone scuro caramellata, pastosa, di carattere ed inconfondibile. Il top.

Purchased at Systembolaget in Sweden. Pours a dark beer with foam that quickly vanishes. It’s a beer with traces of dark fruit and chocolate. Gentle, mild taste with some sweatness. Best served in a Trappist glass. My favorite Belgian beer.

FireGlider (151) - CROATIA - APR 10, 2015
Dark brown color, small foam. Chestnut aroma but there is something else I can’t recognize, strong and full taste with alcohol presence and long lasting after taste. Beer with full aroma, but not to bitter nor to sweet, and every essence mixed right.
