alteregoo (922) - POLAND - AUG 21, 2016
Po przelaniu do szkła tworzy się drobno i średnio oczkowa, biała pianka. Barwa brązowo herbaciana, lekko mętna. Aromat bardzo dubblowy - karmel, rodzynki, kandyzowane owoce, mid spadziowy, porto, odrobina wanilii. W smaku płsłodkie, poza tym co w zapachu mamy tu ciemne winogrono, mocne ciemne wino właśnie typu porto czy sherry, daktyle, przyprawy... Piwo jest delikatnie cierpkie i winne, goryczka niewielka, głogowa, pojawia się dopiero chwilę po połknięciu. Wodniste i mało intensywne w odczuciu. Wysycenie dość wysokie, drobne, musujące w ustach...
Sumarycznie całkiem ciekawe piwo, gdyby jednak miało więcej ciała, treściwości byłoby dużo lepiej, a tak wszystkie te ciekawe posmaki się rozmywają...

erickok (5396) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 9, 2016
Typical Belgian yeast, quite sticky and roast with caramel sweetness and some wood. Its okay, but perhaps not the right moment (warm, busy) to drink... (33cl bottle from Etre Gourmet)

fkoolen (985) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2016 Bottle at home. Nice dark reddish brown, hazy, creamy beige head. Roasted malty caramel, dried fruits, brown sugar, nuts, honey, light vanilla, slightly acidic. Well balanced, maybe a bit on the sweet side. Creamy, soft mouthfeel from the barrel aging, good body, low carbonation.

ForlornHope (404) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours red-brown in colour with a white head that diminishes, leaving a good lace on the glass. Aroma is rich malt with a slightly sharp tanginess. Tastes slightly sweet to start, with a good balance of bitterness. The main flavour characteristic is the nicely balanced tangy taste which gives this malty ale an interesting character without being too sharp. There are also some nice fruit flavours in there. Despite being rich and sweet, the sharpness makes it quite quaffable.

rami_pl (1928) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 15, 2016
butelka, warka do 22-01-18. Brazowe, z ladna ale szybko, szampansko znikajaca piana. aromaty to slody, karmel, suszone owoce, miod. w ustach niewiele ciala, srednie wysycenie, praktycznie bez goryczki, slodkie (miodowo-owocowo slodkie), dosc lekkie. Rozczarowniem jest to, ze w ogole nie ma nic, ani w aromacie ani w smaku, co by mowilo tym lezakowaniu w beczce. Sredniak, zbyt jednowymiarowy na cokolwiek wiecej.
