Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, - OCT 10, 2012
Golden colour with coarsish carbonation and a white head that left some lace on the side of the glass. The aroma is an interesting one with classic golden Germanic malts to the fore, some toffee and a bit of a signature ’there’s a fair amount of alcohol here John, I hope you haven’t got much planned for this afternoon’. I say that, but it could be easily overlooked. There’s also some dried orchard fruit aroma as well. Initially bubbly and then the full bodied juicy whack that also brings out caramel and toffee. It is unctuous without being over-sweet. The finish is one that gives a nod to highish alcohols and fruity esters that dries and leaves you with orange oil and mace.

Calisky (1844) - ALSACE, FRANCE - OCT 7, 2015
Couleur dorée, légère mousse. Nez malté, fruité sucré (miel-raisin). Gout malté, caramel, sucré miel, note de pommes avec corps assez épais et un peu liquoreux, alcool réchauffant. Pas exceptionnelle aux niveaux des aromes pour une doppelbock, mais onctueuse en bouche, bref pas le cognac des bières comme ils disent, mais quand même l’alcool réchauffant et la texture.

Fiston (8) - Cressier, SWITZERLAND - OCT 2, 2015 does not count
Sweet honey aroma. Gold appearance. The head is not staying a lot. Honey strong taste. This could be a honey beer. But very nice body and palate. I like!!!

tricksta_p (2254) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma of grains, sweet malt, caramel, syrupy, sweet dried fruits, some apple notes, alcohol. Flavour is massively cloying sweet. Body is medium. Sweet and sticky in the mouth. Nasty evil sweet alcoholic stuff.

macio_men (137) - Warszawa, POLAND - SEP 20, 2015
Aromat mocno owocowy, trochę chmielowy. Piwo złotoczerwony, klarowne, bez piany. Bardzo mocne nasycenie. W smaku sam cukier, bardzo mocny alkohol, owocowy posmak. Bardziej przyponina whisky niz piwo :/

Aragh (106) - POLAND - SEP 3, 2015
Pite na wyjeździe z butelki. W zapachu dominują truskawki i owoce leśne. W smaku najpierw krótko słody owocowe, przykryte później mocną goryczą z nutami owoców leśnych, karmelu i whisky.

halapablo (104) - Warszawa, POLAND - AUG 30, 2015
butelka 0,33. taka raczej ciekawostka z tym 9,6%. Smak to sam słód, który może i zabija te procenty ale powoduje, że tego nie da sięwypić więcej niż kilka łyków, w ogóle też nie nanadaje się jako dosatek do jedzenia, chyba że landrynek
