johndoughty (6091) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2019 Brown with a small head. Sweet to the point of being overpowering.Doesn't possess a lot of impact considering its strength. Enjoyed it but a bit too sweet for me-and I have a sweet tooth.

Zilverenmaan (575) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 21, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2018 Bottle from Wijnegemse drankenhal, BBF oct. 2017, kept it in my cellar myself as a strong, dark ale for ageing. Poors milky, dark brown with decent mocha head. Aroma very abundant and clean: somewhat sweetish but nice caramel, dried plums, yeast, vanilla, spicy finish. Impression of an aged Oerbier I dare say. Taste more licorice, candi sugar, slightly metallic, fades away after a while though, again gentle but noticable spicy finish. Taste not of the same fullness as the aroma suggested, the disturbing carbonation doesn't help either. Pleasant yeasty, vanilla, plummy aftertaste. The taste of plums and vanilla lacks a bit of depth and appears rather artificial. This is not a quality quad but definately decent if you take your time of let the carbonation and metallic taste fade away.

Bamsen78 (6520) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2018 Bottle. Pours hazy darkish copper brown with airy light tan head. Clear aroma of malt and yeast, with touches of caramel and fruit. Sweetish flavour of yeast, malt and caramel, with notes of hops, coriander and nuts. Estery aftertaste with notes of spice and caramel. High carbonation, a little too high, actually. Otherwise decent.

3.5
MiP (17211) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2018 Bottle, 9%. Metallic and very caramelly aroma. Clear dark brown colour. Small stable off-white head. The flavour is sweet, caramelly and very spicy. Sort of like vitamin pills, but not as metallic as I had feared. High carbonation. Liquid candy... with alcohol.
