jamaty (1144) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
mbar. Madurada en barriles de roble. Aroma a alcohol y madera. Llena la boca y en seguida pega el petardazo en lengua y paladar. Sabor a miel y malta. Poco equilibrio. Alcohol demasiado evidente y poco ms

bartzluke (261) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 11, 2015
.33l pour from room-temp bottle into a goblet. Luminous orange and clear as day with a light, fizzy, and quickly-dissipating head. Beautiful color and clarity. Incredibly full bodied. Syrupy. Aromatic with a strong boozy and fruity nose. Some raisin and bitter herbs notes in there too. I am not a big fan of the taste, though. It ends with a bitter arugula bite. Raisin, alcohol, biscuit, yeast, and bitter fruit in the middle. An aggressive and technically-apt beer, but in the end not one I much enjoy drinking.

TheCametron (2087) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 8, 2015
Bottle brought back from Austria. Pours Clear Amber with a short lived White head. Sweet smelling with an odd savoury component. Smells vaguely like Chinese food. Flavour is thick butterscotch with plenty of hops. Its got a clear and present alcohol to it but Id have to say it works better than I imagined it would. This has been a bit of a shelf turd for me since I brought it home from Vienna over a year ago. Its not bad but I dont really ever want another one.

musehead (15) - Siena, ITALY - MAY 9, 2015
Birra deludente. Stuzzicante come profumi, in cui c una forte prevalenza di frutta matura e miele e praticamente nulla di derivazione luppolata, ma anche come colore, dato che la frizzante schiuma chiara lascia subito il posto ad una limpidezza dorata carica insolita per una doppelbock. Quel che davvero mi dispiaciuto nel sapore il netto distacco tra la parte aromatica e quella molto accentuata alcolica. E una 9.6%, ma la botta arriva tutta insieme e separata dal resto dei sapori, lasciando questa spiacevole sensazione di alcol etilico che d la certezza di aver bevuto qualcosa di forte ma che spacca la degustazione in due. Non consigliata.

SkillsFactory (146) - ITALY - MAY 8, 2015
Oro carico, limpida, poca schiuma non molto persistente, ben carbonata, corpo pieno. Aroma di uva passa e pesca disidratata. Stessa cosa al palato con la componente maltata che spicca su tutto il resto, nota erbacea sul finale, molto molto dolce e noiosa.

Sebilinz (995) - Linz, AUSTRIA - APR 30, 2015
Bottle 10 month after BB. Amber body with white head. Aroma is caramel and malts with some honey. Taste is sweet malts with honey and dried fruits. Aftertaste is bitter and sweet with hints of metal. O.K.

HammerTroll (792) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 22, 2015
Clear nice red-ish color, no head at all. Aroma is alcohol, caramel and tons of malt. Caramel taste, heavily sweet, malt and sugar. Creamy texture, thin body, soft carbonation.

MarkoNm (1290) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAR 14, 2015
Pours a clear golden color, topped with a decent frothy white head. Sweet malty aroma, fruity notes can be picked up, but malt is dominant with some presence of alcohol smell. Taste is malty and (very) sweet, presence of alcohol is evident, mild bitterness in the finish. Not the best one for me. To sweet, with too much alcohol in the taste.
