Flesje 33cl tht 16 jul 2018. Mooi donkerbruin, schuim komt goed op maar verdwijnt vrijwel meteen. Veel mout en een beetje plattelandlucht is aangenaam aanwezig. Drinkt soepel en rond, de smaken zijn allemaal terug te vinden in het aroma. Vooral de mout. Alles is mooi in balans. Afdronk is licht bitter in de keel.

Crazy_Kiwi_13 (3) - Wanganui, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 22, 2014 does not count
Appearance: Dark, rich, nutty brown-red, large white head, not a large amount of retention. Aroma: Figs, dates, raisins, burnt caramel, toffee, brown sugar, sweet malts, hints of chocolate, and, chocolate malt, very slight hints of vanilla. Palate: Full bodied and heavily carbonated. Taste: Figs, dates, raisins, burnt caramel, toffee, rich sweet malt, banana, slight bitterness in the finish, but overall rich, sweet, and, complex, Michael Jackson once referred to Fullerís Golden Pride as the "Cognac of Beers", I think the title is more fitting to this beer. Overall: Absolutely gorgeous, complex, rich, sweet, reminiscent of Cognac in elements of the flavour and the level of complexity, lovely stuff this.

On tap at Yard House in San Diego. Pours Amber with a creamy off white head. Aroma is caramel and burnt sugar. Flavor follows. Mild bitterness. Real nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Freaky_tiki (611) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
Pours brown & bubbly. Aroma is odd: I canít quite place it but Mrs Tiki says it reminds her of a mechanicís garage (she assures me this is a good thing). Flavour is a trip to the candy shop: melted rock candy meets dried fruit with a malt twang that hides some of the sugar. A great sipper. Bottle pulled from 6 pack sampler at the LCBO. Recommend.

codfishh (100) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2014
Pours a deep hazy brown aroma of raisins and prunes with some rummy notes. Flavor has more of the rummy notes, some acidity and raisiny fruitiness. Delicious beer.

Diabobale (225) - ITALY - NOV 11, 2014
Rispetto alla Pater 6, la prior 8 Ť molto piý matura. Colore marrone, con un corpo ben strutturato, una buona presenza di malti, risulta essere molto corposa e rotornda e vellutata alla bevuta

shaynsawchuk (536) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2014
330 mL bottle. Pours clear; deep mahogany with a thick cap of creamy off white head. Big malts up front, more bread than caramel. Light toffee leads into honeyed fig, overripe banana, molasses. Earthy-spicy Belgian yeast. Mild spicy-Old World hopping. A little sweet with just enough bitter hop to balance out on the drier side. Smooth, moderate to full bodied with high carbonation. Silky-creamy with great sustain. Just a hint of alcohol heat.
