emartell (244) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - DEC 5, 2013
Cerveza embotellada en 2005. Aroma. Fuerte, notas vinosas, ligeramente vinagre, algunos aromas a frutas secas. Obscura, destellos rojizos, cuerpo redondo, corona de espuma practicamente nula, carbonatacion ligera. En boca suave, vinosa y de final potente. Al paladar inicio suave, ligeramente dulce. No se percibe amargor en ningún momento. Desarrolló notas vinosas con el tiempo, ligeramente sabor acido y a vinagre. Final alcohólico y largo. En resumen cerveza unica la cual con el tiempo desarrolló sabores acidos y vinosos. Fuerte y suave a la vez. Equilibrada. Agradable pero que a la vez debe tomarse con calma.

Erzengel (2610) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 2, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 Im Glas hat es eine schöne tief rot-braune Farbe. Der Schaum ist schön feinporig und erinnert an Guinness. Das Bier ist sehr süffig-vollmundig. Schon fast schwer und dickflüssig. Im Mund breitet sich langsam eine schöne schokoladige Malznote aus, es ist kaum Herbe Spürbar. Ein süßlich-cremiges Bier mit sehr vielen komplexen, schwer zu beschreibenden Aromen.
Einfach Klasse um es abends schön langsam zu genießen!!
Test vom 10.2.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 13,14,13,14,13,13 - 13,30

Renobob (637) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 21, 2013
Noté de réglisse en final pour cette bière dark mais qu'on peut boire sans être dépassé par sa force. Notes fumées aussi bien au nez qu'au palais.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Naama’s place. Thanks Dan. Deep reddish brown color. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel, brown sugar, some malt and a bit of salty licorice. Sweet flavor with caramel, dark fruits, candy-ish notes, some malt and a drier, slightly spicy, alcoholic finish. A bit sticky. OK.
