WortMeister11 (194) - TAIWAN - NOV 7, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2019 opened on 7th, Nov, 2019 Aroma: toffee, dark dried fruit, some chocolate, weak citric fruit Appearance: hazy orange-copper color with a one-finger tan head. Taste: toffee, dark dried fruit, some chocolate, mild citric fruit, medium-high sweetness, smooth medium bitterness. Palate: medium-full body, silky texture, little carbonation, bittersweet finish, appropriate dryness and alcohol sensation. Overall: Having a robust malt base which has become even more or more complex over years, this beer is really rich and tasty without being cloying. It is somewhat more of a barley wine than an English strong ale because of its stronger malt and relatively lower hoppy aroma. Umami quality from aging process is present. The flavor is well-balanced and mellowed.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2019 Six years not yet cognac, good old ale/malty brew Sipper with supper. Good but not the best annual version.

Spab (6068) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2019 500 ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a lightly cloudy rusty orange colour with small off-white head. Aroma is woodiness, vinous character, leather, toffee and breadiness. Flavour is woody and earthy with brown sugar, leather, cherry, spicy and bready. Not much alcohol warmth left at this point. Nice.

Eructoblaster (5688) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2019 Bottle - 500ml. Amber, slightly hazy body with an average, off-white foamy/creamy head. Robust malty/hoppy aroma with barley sugar, cinnamon, and woody hints. Its well balanced malty/hoppy taste is identical to the aroma. Ends with a moderately warming, bittersweet finish. Very enjoyable.

hrabren (3803) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 21, 2018
Bottle shared with Višnja 666 and Pilot Goran at a Mega Tasting, October 12th 2017. Amber to copper, small to a medium off-white head. Cookie dough, dried fruits, complex maltiness, some dark cherry, very light peat, figs, spices and light zest. Beautiful sweetness, great balance, light dryness form spicy flavours in the finish, slightly salty. Very rich and syrupy, medium to full body. Beautiful and aged so well.

yoxik75 (829) - Wroclaw, POLAND - JUN 25, 2018
Piana niewysoka ale trwała, zdobi szkło. Kolor bursztyn wpadający w czerwień. Aromat, karmel, cukier kandyzowany, słodowy, przyjemne owocowe, landrynkowe estry, minimalnie szlachetnie alkohol. Smak, zbożowo słodowe nie słodkie, sporo estrów i fenoli drożdżowych, suszone owoce figi, rodzynki, jest tez coś orzeźwiającego jak nuta kwaskowa winogron, co dziwne jest tu posmak popiołu jak w ciemnych piwach, wyraźna beczka z dębiną, taninami. Wszystkie smaki się świetnie komponują , są intensywne nic nie dominuje. Bardzo Dobre WOW

Estebanik (2401) - Lublin, POLAND - MAR 20, 2018
Panel "Nudna Anglia vs Nieciekawa Belgia" w Strefie Piwa. Piana szczątkowa, gruboziarnista. Aromat zaskakująco intensywny, suszone owoce, miód, biszkopty. W smaku już nie jest tak ekstrawagancko - wychodzą nuty bardziej herbaciane, cukierkowe. Goryczka nieco ściągająca, alkohol minimalnie wychodzi na finiszu, choć nie przeszkadza. Efekty utlenienia są wyczuwalne retronosowo i robią złudzenie niezłej pełni. Dużo ciekawiej pachnie niż smakuje.

Excelente cerveza de color ambar con cierta turbidez. Cuerpo medio alto con carbonatación media. Aromas a melocotón e higo y sabores a frutos maduros. Calentamiento en boca que muestra un novel alcoholico medio alto. Espuma fina de color beige. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Erzengel (12216) - Saarland, GERMANY - NOV 20, 2017
Bottle from my cellar. Smooth mild beginning. Fruity wood, deep malt, Quite dry, not too intense bitter. Nice fruity in the end, round and smooth. Nice.
