Silvan7 (863) - Samarate, ITALY - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle @home. Schiuma beige fine e persistente. Colore ramato carico riflessi aranciati. Aroma di frutta secca, nocciola e mandorla, tostatura, lievito belga, zucchero filato e un poco di liquirizia. Gusto dolce abboccato, poco amara, di cacao con retrolfattivo di nocciola. Poco sapida, un pelo metallica. Molto crposa, un po’ astringente, abbastanza carbonata. Equilibrata ed abbastanza armonica.

StoutHead (852) - DENMARK - JUN 3, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours ruby red with a long lasting light-brown frothy head. Aroma really sweet, fruity and hoppy. Taste of malt, hops, sugar and all sorts of fruits. Very sweet with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Reminds me a bit of Chimay Bleu, but sweeter and fruitier. Not bad, but I think I’d prefer a Chimay. ;-)

fantti (791) - FINLAND - JUN 23, 2014
Kaatuu lasiin tumman punaruskeana ja kirkkaana, 3 sormen paksuinen vaahto jättää vahvaa pitsiä. Tuoksussa on vahvaa marjaisuutta, makeaa tummaa hedelmää, paahdettua sokeria ja hiven mausteista yrttisyyttä. Maussa jatkuu sama marjaisuus ja tummaa rypäleisyyttä, joiden alla on yrttisyyttä ja lakritsista juurisuutta. Makeaa otettakin on, muttei liikaa. Suutuntuma on melko täyteläinen, makeahko ja yllättävänkin helposti juotava. Enemmän vahva belgi kuin portteri, marjat ja rypäleet eniten esillä. Pelottavan helposti juotava.
