mR_fr0g (5233) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle shared at the Cad’s 10 year birthday tasting. Picked up from the school yard. Aroma is nice plumy fruits, stewed fruit, caramel. Mid amber coloured pour with a lasting greyish cream coloured head. Flavour is composed of plum, raspberry fruits, caramel, dark and nutty grains. A little warming booze in the finish is nice. Palate is semi-sweet, mid carbonation.

Azazello (106) - POLAND - MAY 10, 2015
Struise Tsjeeses Reserva - Port Barrel Aged to jedno z dwóch zakupionych przeze mnie piw świątecznych - to było leżakowane w beczce po porto, a ja w porto zakochałem się będąc w Portugalii. Wygląda przepięknie ze swoją barwą będącą na granicy burgundu i miedzi. To lekko wysycone i gładkie piwo cieszy aromatem suszonych owoców, delikatnymi przyprawami, wiśnią i mocnym aromatem drewnianym. Wiśnia przydaje piwu cierpkości w smaku, ale generalnie piwo balansuje ku mocno owocowej słodyczy brzoskwini i ananasa. Piwo mocno rozgrzewa i chyba tylko delikatnie zbyt mocna pieprzowość mnie w nim gryzła. Tak czy siak jest bardzo dobrze!

cards04 (2216) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 7, 2015
This is pretty awesome. Pours a dark honey colour. Lots of sweet Belgian candy goodness going on in the aromas and flavours. I don’t get much port. Nice hoppy end. I really liked this.
