Fullpintofbeer (393) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2017
Bottle @Small Bar, Bristol. Huge off-white head, very dark amber/ruby colour, hazy. Aroma: yeasts, fruits, raisins. Bitter/sweet taste, long finish, full body, lively. Very interesting, strong, complex, but it is not kicking ass.

Bottle. A couple of years old. Brown with white head. Dried fruits, raisins, brown sugar, some caramel, some cheese and some yeast. A nice and complex beer.

17/20 big fruity taste with slight alcohol burn. Not as smooth or complex as the 12. Extremely good but not worth a tenner a bottle ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured into a chalice releasing aromas of malts, caramel and dark fruits, appearance was dark amber with a small cap off white lasting head, full bodied and soft carbonation, flavours reminiscent of sweet caramel with plums, prunes and dates along with dark chocolate, outstanding.

Bottle pour in Seattle, thanks Andrew /Matt for this beer. Dark amber pour, grape aroma. Flavor is a little sweet smooth grape. Nice beer.

Bottle pour. Finally opening this one, after plenty of anticipation. Dark and dense brown pour with a patchy head. A massive grape constant here. Grape juice, dusty malt aroma. Flavor is bold and hints of sweet dark fruit, grape. Earthy constant, with a smooth finish. Pleasant beer to say the least. Thanks, Alberto!

Light medium tan, good head retention. Light brown colour, quite bitter and leathery. Soaked grape aromas.

labeerinthum (900) - Milano, ITALY - JUL 31, 2017
Bottiglia BBE 12-2018. Il gusto al naso propende per floreale, nocciola, frutta disidratata e ciliegia. L’intensità olfattiva è molto elevata e la persistenza olfattiva è pregevole. Il cappello di schiuma color ocra è compatta, cremosa e aderente ha una buona tenuta con pizzo finale ad altezza della sua fama. La grandezza delle bollicine è medio-fine. La carbonazione è abbondante. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. Il perlage è formato da bollicine medie. La carbonazione è abbondante, frizzante, vivace, persistente ed insistita. Il colore è marrone chiaro. Il corpo è strutturato. Il dolce è medio. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è buona. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di pronta beva eppure di birra impegnativa a causa del robusto tenore alcolico. Il finale è lungo, secco, pulito e complesso. Il retrogusto è intenso e persistente. Al tetto della bocca arrivano impressioni di caramello, fichi, nocciola, frutta disidratata e ciliegia.

GuillaumeB (7) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2017 Brune avec mousse blanche et cremeuse tres persistante, arome complexe et sensation en bouche extremement douce. L?alcool est peu present. Biere vraiment fantastique.
