Blackberry backlog, Pours a copper color with a large off white, almost beige head. Nose is huge on raisin, fig, and other dark fruits. Flavor is similar with some plum, raisin bread, sweet malt, honey, and molasses. Rich and decadent belgian strong. Medium to fuller in the mouthfeel. Nice

[email protected] Highly balanced and organic with sweet, slightly bitter raisin and dryed fruits. Some maghony and a hint of cognac. Medium/light body. Overall, too light palate, great taste though bit light.

Bottle at home. Clear dark mahogany with a bit fizzy dark beige head that looks like a cola head at first, but leaves a nice film. Looks very good. Massive brown sugar, toffee, raisins, light milk chocolate, dates, dried peach, some cognac. Very decandent aroma. Taste is over medium sweet and with some alcoholic bitterness. Almost full bodied with a slick feel and a bit low carbonation. Slightly let down by the palate. Still a really good beer, Rochefort it’s not, but it’s damn tasty.

Piwo lekko metne w kolorze ciemny brazowy z minimalna 0iana wokol szkla. W aromacie slodowo, suszone owoce i belgijskie drozdze. W smaku dosc wytrawne z wysyceniem i goryczka na niskim poziomie. Jest troche czekolady, orzechy i przyprawy od drozdzy. Cialo polpelne z odrobina alkoholu rozgrzewajacego gardlo.

reebtogi (6341) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 12, 2016
750ml capped bottle pours an amber brown color with a finger and a half of light beige head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and dark fruits with hints of chocolate and toasted almonds. Taste is a light fruit tartness with a caramel and chocolate malty sweetness with a spicy hop bitterness with some almonds in the mix. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, a nice brew that suits the style well, with a good balance of flavours and body. Recommended.

Swaroga (2223) - Warszawa, POLAND - SEP 29, 2016
Magnum bottle. The beer is very similar to the normal version. Look out for strooong gushing. I lost almost half of the bottle. I’m also surprised I didn’t rate it on RB the day I drank it. Anyway, still a great beer with complex aroma and flavor. Not expensive but not much different, maybe a bit more dry then the normal version.

Inoven (856) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - SEP 11, 2016
Robijnrood helder bier met een caramelachtig, fruitig aroma. In de smaak komt de caramel ook naar boven. Smaak ebt snel weg. Zwaar bier wat je snel te vlug drinkt.

mice (1009) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Pulloa avatessa olut ryöppyää ulos pullosta hirveällä tahdilla. Lasiin päädyttyään paksu vaahto häviää kuitenkin nopeasti ja jättää vain aavistuksen pienen vaahtoreunuksen. Tummanruskea olut. Tuoksu todella houkutteleva, suklainen, tummaa hedelmää ja luumua. Maku maltaisen makea ja pehmeä, tumman hedelmäinen kokonaisuus. Täyteläinen olut pitkällä maltaisen makealla suun täyttävällä jälkimaulla. Runsas hiilihappoisuus pehmentää kokonaisuutta tyylikkäästi. Todellinen taideteos.

Yves (3109) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - AUG 6, 2016
Alone at home. Brown colored beer with small off-white head and no carbonation visible. Malty fruited aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is sour malty slightly roasted and alcoholic. Nice one!
