Beeracolyte (49) - Katowice, POLAND - DEC 26, 2014
Butelka 0,33 ml zakupiona w Piwa Regionalne w Katowicach. Po otworzeniu gushing, ale piwo bez infekcji(zresztą pite świeże, 2 miesiące po zakupie). Prezentuje się świetnie, bardzo ładny ciemno-miedziany kolor, piwo nieklarowne. Piana ładnie znaczy szkło ciągle pozostając w formie koronki belgijskiej na brzegach szkła. W aromacie sherry, rodzynki, lekka nuta alkoholowa i coś jakby ziołowa(chmiel?). W smaku przede wszystkim lekki karmel, sherry i taka orzeźwiająca, ziemisto-ziołowa nuta. Finisz bardzo subtelnie alkoholowy. Piwo rzeczywiście zdaje się być połączeniem Barley Wine (i chyba przede wszystkim nim jest) z Quadruplem. Z belgii można wyróżnić czerwone owoce, przypominające likier. Piwo ma bardzo gładką teksturę. chociaż alkohol nie jest do końca przykryty, mimo tych wszystkich smaków pełni tam znaczącą, choć nie pierwszoplanową rolę. Niskie nasycenie, piwo oczywiście słodkie, chociaż tekstura piwa wskazywałaby na co innego. Piwo do polecenia, choć nie jest to topowy barley wine ale podejście do stylu i zmieszaniem go z Quadruplem jest ciekawym pomysłem.

Bottle @ Nüetnigenough. Full 33cl sample. The aroma has caramel, raisin, quite some spice. Clear brown reddish coloured beer with a thin, off-white-beige head. The taste is moderate sweet, has dried fruits, quite some spice. Alcohol present but relative well hidden. Belly warming. Nice one.

Silvan7 (886) - Samarate, ITALY - NOV 13, 2014
Bottle @ home. Birra ramato carico, tendente al tonaca di frate, opalescente, con schiuma beige effimera, quasi inesistente. Aroma molto intenso, fruttato, di ciliege sotto spirito, datteri, lievito belga, cioccolato fondente, e zucchero candito. Molto complessa .Gusto amabile, in primo piano frutti rossi (fragole e ciliege) poco amara, con un tostato che varia dal cioccolato fondente al cacao amaro. Estrememente calda, rotonda, equilibrata e corposa.
