erickok (3185) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JAN 2, 2014
Brown bodied, small head. Aromatic heavy malts, light acidity, cheesy yeast, powerful concentrated appeal. Delicious rich warming body with fair amount of carbonation. However the warming alcohol and full, thick body balances this carbonation out very well. This is really my kind of brew. Indulging, delicious, perfect example of the style. (375ml bottle from Saveur Bière)

ClubGonzo (3520) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle from Beer Planet, Brussels. Pours a hazy deep orange-amber body with a medium, short-lived off-white head. Nose is dense caramel, grains, red grape peel and hints of plums and alcohol. Taste is caramel, boozy grain notes, hints of coffee, dark chocolate and toffee. Some vanilla and more booze in the finish. Hints of grass. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Not too bad. On the other hand, not too good either.
