Allseeingeye (223) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2002
Deep chestnut brown. Humungous head of medium and compact bubbles. Tacky lace. Vinegar, fruit(figs, prunes), bacitracin, sweet and sour sauce, blue cheese, tobacco, leather, and alcohol aromas, to name a few. Figs, plums, sour berries, bitter baker’s chocolate, Stilton cheese, and an amalgam of spices and flavors I can’t put a finger on. Mildly astringent and dry. A mild bitterness creeps down the back of the tongue, similar to the feel of an espresso. Really dry fruitiness as it warms.

Donker bier met kleine gistdeeltjes en een bijzondere geur en smaak. Ook een fijne, zachte nasmaak.

plaugher (263) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 27, 2015
12oz bottle into chalice. What more can be said of this monster? Rich, bold, complex and delicious. Full-on plum, currant, and dried fruits; viscous palate. Warming without being boozy. Comes in and out of circulation in town; never sure if, when it disappears, more will ever show up in town. Oh, to have an infinite cellar of it...

dodskenta (89) - Rönninge, SWEDEN - JUL 25, 2015
Dark brown with a nice tan head, good retention. Nose is figs, raisins, caramel, toffee, marzipan, yeast esters. Flavour is so well balanced, notes of banana, dark fruits, sweet malts, brown sugar, bubblegum. Slight hint of alcohol, but for the abv it’s really well hidden. One of the best.

Ich werde das Bier nicht ausführlich beschreiben; die große Mehrheit kennt es eh schon. Daher bleibt nur zu sagen: Weltklasse. Eines der besten Biere der Welt, dazu Preis-/Leistungs-Verhältnis sagenhaft. Einfach nur toll.

Sviskon i aromen. Impstout utseende. Barleywine referenser. Fin arom komplex. Fin kolsyra. Inte oäven inte oäven

Dark brown pour with a thin white head. Aroma of some malts, light. Flavor of cinnamon, malts, and light hops with a crisp finish.
