medusetl (11) - Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2013
Amber pour, thick head. Smells malty, slight caramel, hints of fruit. First taste is dramatic: expansive fruitiness, sweet finish, echoes of port at the end too. Tsjeeses indeed. Very nice beer.

Peter_L (723) - SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2013
Flaska från SB webblansering 2012. Kopparfärgad vätska med livligt skum. Djupa dofter av russin och daddlar. Påtaglig närvaro av fänkol. Söt smak som övergår till ett torrt avslut. Fyllig munkänsla med en bra balans av alkoholstyrkan. Lång eftersnak.

JulienHuxley (3020) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2013
Bottle, side by side with BBA Tsjeeses. Clear gold pour with thin receding white head. Aroma is quite similar to bba, fruity, boozy notes, very light winey character. Taste is quite boozy, light vanilla-like sweetness, winey, oaky flavor. Palate is rich, quite boozy, low-med carbonation. Good, but slightly inferior to (this) bottle of BBA.
