Flaska från Saveur Bieré. Smak och doft av mörk torkad frukt, russin, plommon, karamell, portvin, brunt socker med toner av nötter. Rund och len, fin sötma och fruktighet, fin balans och sötma. Gott! patricks110 (2715) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 28, 2017
Elegant, rich, a tad sweet for me but beautiful overall. Tons of raisin, prune, dried cherrys. The pour is a dark burgundy, auburn and a dense, puffy off white head. The nose is dried fruits, fruit cake, toffee, molasses. Nice body; heavy but soft with mild carbonation. The finish is mildly boozy, light hop bitterness. Earthy, light tobacco, mild floral notes. Good beer overall DavidSvinth (324) - DENMARK - NOV 18, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2017 Ligner cola.
Dufter gæret, næsten som marmaite.
Smagen er sød og maltet og rigtig fin.

Gusher. Dark brown with nice khaki head that runs away. Lots of sediment. Aroma is licorice, port wine, rich raisin, fresh baked bread. Medium bodied sweet candy sugar followed by a rich malty wave on the first sip. Nutty malt with some sweet dates in the finish. Nice and balanced but to be perfectly honest it not really my thing. Not quite sure where this fits into their range (stronger than the Brune, but not the grand cru). As it opens up it's actually a bit boozy. I enjoy a few dark strong ales, but the style is admittedly not my favorite. This one didn't really convert me either. reebtogi (6403) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 5, 2017
750ml capped bottle pours amber in color with a 2 fingers of off-white head that retains well and leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and raisin with some yeasty notes. Taste is a raisin and caramel malty sweetness with a grassy and spicy bitterness and a bit of yeast funk in the finish. Light to medium bodied with abundant carbonation that teases the tongue. Overall, a brew that hides the alcohol well and is balanced and flavorful.

Poured from 750ml bottle a...dang! It started foaming over all over the place. I had to rush it to the kitchen and grab another couple of glasses so I wouldn't lose too much of it.
Well, after it finall settled down, it poured a cloudy rusty brown with, umm, a large head of foam that shrank slowly leaving a solid fine layer with lots of lacing.
The smell hit me before I ever got the cap fully off..it was a huge nose of sweet caramel malty goodness mixed in with good fruity tones like plum and apricot.
The taste is hugely sweet caramel but it's done right; the sweetness is not cloying and in fact, not negative in any way shape or form. My goodness, I'm now dreading the fact that I lost even 1 drop of this amazing brew.
After a few more sips, my palate begins to pick up on the fruity notes that I noted in the smell. Plum, a bit of apricot and some fig. I can't sense *any* bitterness what so ever and that's just fine by me. What a treat! And as far as it's abv by % goes..you've got to be kidding me!! 10%??? No sign of it in the taste at all and just a touch of warming as it goes down. Wow. Yum. This is world class stuff!!!
Bottom line: This is a brew that, if you see it in your neck of the woods, is *not* to be ignored! I recommend it on the highest level!
Just be *careful* when opening it!!!
Fruktig doft med mandel och nötter samt kola och aning kryddor. Klimaet (3048) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2017
Vacker, mörkt rödbrun kulör och en disig brygd. Skummar över vid öppningen. Stort skum följaktligen men som avtar tämligen fort och lämnar en sluten hinna.
Mörk torkad frukt i smaken samt en komplex karamellkomposition, men utan alltför stor sötma. Aningen kärvt träaktig och svagt kryddig karaktär.
Eftersmaken är trevligt fruktig.
Pours hazy reddish dark brown with a small offwhite head. Aromas of sweet fruits, dates, raisins, caramel, esters. Taste has caramel, dark fruits, toffee, belgian esters, subtle tartness, licorice. Mariox (363) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 30, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2017 Pite na hejnał w Kulminatorze. Aromat ciemnych owoców, estrów. W smaku dobry balans między słodyczą i goryczką. Skoro weszło na hejnał to w takim razie gładkie i pijalne :) DroolYeast (1741) - Odder, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2017
