FoamRespek12 (8) - - OCT 30, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2018 Apparence très sombre et peu trouble avec une mousse épaisse beige persistante. De nombreux arômes s’en dégagent, moins puissant que pour la 12 mais tout aussi agréable. En bouche on ressent la carbonatation fine, légèrement l’alcool. Beaucoup de goût d’épices subtile . De manière général on a un équilibre parfait. Un compromis entre tout les paramètres qui la rend proche de la 12 mais plus facile à boire, moins de texture en bouche, moins d’alcool et de goûts. Le tout reste très subtile et agréable

jarvo (284) - Abingdon, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2018
Dark brown, two inch rocky head. Aroma primarily dark and dried fruit. Taste is beautiful balance between sweet rich fruit and alcohol. To be enjoyed!

4.4
Guaro (34) - - OCT 24, 2018
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2018 Marrone scuro con riflessi ambrati. Schiuma consistente beige chiaro, molto pomposa e densa. Birra da bere a temperatura da cantina e da lasciar respirare nel bicchiere. Riscaldandosi emergono tutti i fantastici odori come marmellata di frutta nera, crostata, vino passito è un po’ di caramello. In bocca medio corpo e carbonazione. Facile bevuta morbida e soddisfacente. Sapori di nocciole, frutta sotto spirito e crostata. Finale amaricante e speziato che ripulisce il palato. Alcol nascosto ma che ad ogni sorso scalda e coccola. Birra impegnativa dalle mille sfaccettature. Capolavoro!

hrabren (2761) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 21, 2018
Bottle shared with Višnja 666 and Pilot Goran at a Mega Tasting, October 12th 2017. Amber to brown colour, small to medium head. Malty, dried fruit and spices. Sweet, light dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation, moderate finish. Putting this one in the middle of the Mega Tasting might not give it the attention it deserves as a classic.

FlightLees22 (731) - Groningen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2018
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2018 Prettig donker bier met lekkere smaken van chocolade en donkere vruchten. Is iets minder uitgesproken dan de grote broer, maar door de ingetogen en complexe smaken toch een heel lekker bier. -backlog de BierApp-
