Quick3Beers (1865) - East Falmouth, USA - NOV 12, 2018
Pours a nice rich mahogany from a bottle, khaki head is thick. Some floaties meandering around. Rich yeasty aroma, with dark candi sugar, molasses cookie, and dark rum. Flavor is similar, sweet and yeasty. Very well-balanced, alcohol burn is there almost for show and is not harsh. Very good beer.

Świetne ciemne piwo z słodkim aromatem owoców. Wszystko łączy się w jedną całość która tworzy właśnie to piwo

A 330ml bottle with a cap date (bottled +3 years) of 1st September 2019. Poured into a Chimay goblet glass. After a careful pour to leave most of the yeast in the bottle, it was a clear brown colour with a copper red hue and a just over one finger off white head that had great retention, but eventually settled to a very nice self replenishing cap while leaving great lacing around the glass. Aromas of strong fruitiness, apple, plum, dates, fig, toffee with light clove and banana notes. Tastes sweet, plum, dates, fig, banana bread, toffee, yeast and a touch of spice. Creamy, medium to full bodied, with moderate carbonation. Overall, I’m not a huge fan of sweetness, and this definitely leans on the sweet side, perhaps overly so for me. I prefer both Rochefort 10 and St. Bernardus Abt 12 over this. It’s still good, and not by any means bad, but if I had to pick a special Westvleteren beer, it would definitely be a fresh bottle of the Westvleteren Blond, as that is just one of the best Belgian Pale Ale’s ever.

Bottle shared. Lovely mahogany brown pour with highlights, nice head and lacing. Aroma of brown sugar, fruit cake, dark rich fruit, booze, rich and inviting. Hard to stop smelling it, just wonderful. Bakery flavours, fruit bread, fig, candied sugars, sweet boozy port-like note, pan caramelised sugar, plums, wow. Medium-body, tingly fizz, warmth. Just excellent.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2018 Pqp vsf! Isso é cerveja! O problema vai ser voltar a beber outra coisa depois. Valeu cada centavo!

FlightLees22 (715) - Groningen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2018
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2018 Heerlijk bier, met smaken van karamel, brood, rozijnen, een klein beetje zwarte peper en rook/koffie. Kleur is donker met een vleugje bruin/rood. -backlog de BierApp-

Ljus (568) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2018
Apparence : Brune, bon col beige aéré, bonne rétention laissant une légère dentelle. Carbonatation plutôt active.
Nez : Pain grillé, épices, caramel, fruits confits.
Goût : Pain grillé, caramel, épices, sucre grillé, touche d'alcool et de fruits confits et séchés. Équilibre des notes grillées et sucrées.
Sensation : Corps moyen-plus, effervescence moyenne, longueur appropriée en bouche.
Bref : Bière fort équilibrée entre les aspects grillés, sucrés et épicés. J'aurais pris un peu plus de fruits, d'intensité et de corps. Si on cherche une très bonne bière qui se boit avec aisance et ce, au-dessus de 10%, on tombe sur la bonne. Si on cherche une expérience hors de l'ordinaire, on peut trouver plus déstabilisant ailleurs.
