rumore (3720) - Rimini, ITALY - AUG 22, 2022
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2022 Taster at Omerta, Krakow, Poland. Pours dark brown, with fine brown foam, limited. Aroma rich, spicy, fruity, caramel and molasses, but also spicy, like sangria. Body is average, with moderate, but tickling carbonation. Taste is pretty sweet, but at the same time spicy. Final is long and again slightly spicy.

jybi (2101) - Nouméa, NEW CALEDONIA - AUG 17, 2022
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2022 Que je n'aie pas encore dégusté cette Cuvée du Chateau était tout de même une anomalie que je corrige enfin. Et grand bien m'en a fait pour une bière qui passe parfaitement en période hivernale et qui pourrait même presque faire office de bière de Noël. Seule la Belgique est capable de nous offrir de telles bières, avec un alcool tonique à 11 %, parfaite colonne vertébrale de cette bière. L'intensité et la présence en bouche sont également exceptionnelles pour une texture pourtant très fine. Les arômes sont quant à eux riches sur le caramel, la mélasse, la réglisse, le girofle, le pruneau, la fraise et la banane. L'ensemble est à la fois distingué et racé avec de jolis contrastes. Et jusqu'au final, brillant, cette cuvée du château ne nous déçoit pas. Un sans-faute pour une grande bière.

3.5
Vighals (9031) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2022
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2022 Mørk rødbrun med lys brunt skum. Lukter sjokolade, nøtter og noe kaffe. Fyldig. Smaker mørk sirup, maltekstrakt, kaffe og alkohol. Lang.

3.7
diegolovesbeer (3) - - JUL 19, 2022 does not count
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2022 De color café oscuro y con una corona beige duradera, desprende un aroma de frutos rojos y licor. El sabor es bastante dulce; esconde fácilmente el gran ABV que posee. Sabe a pasas, higos y malta tostada. El aftertaste es de licor, recuerda al brandy. De cuerpo grueso.

3.8
jjsint (6787) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2022
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2022 330ml bottle bought from the Offie and drunk at home. Very dark brown with a touch of mahogany. Small beige head leaving spotty lacing. Liquorice and treacle dominate the aroma, with a little smoke and some raisins. Sweet taste - almost too sweet - and the liquorice overpowers the burnt sugar and stone fruit character. Light bitterness in the finish leading to more balance. Raisin, fig and vinous notes in the aftertaste. Thick body, medium carbonation. Special.
