Silvan7 (1236) - Samarate, ITALY - DEC 6, 2016
Bottle @ home. Ramata carica, ai limiti del marrone, velata con schiuma beige fine e non molto persistente. Riflessi rosso rubino. Aroma intenso, fine e complesso, da classica strong ale stagionale belga.Frutta rossa sotto spirito, amarene, caramello, toffee, liquirizia, zucchero di canna grezzo cannella e zenzero candito. Poco erbaceo. Gusto lievemente tostato, cacao in polvere, liquirizia, porto, acidulo, quasi piccante ma ovattato il gusto dello zenzero. calda, rotonda, non molto corposa decisamente carbonata (moltissimo per lo stile). Equilibrata e perfettamente armonica.

alteregoo (1346) - Kalisz, POLAND - NOV 13, 2016
Piana dość obfita, nietrwała i brudna. Gushing przy otwieraniu. Barwa rubinowa z brzydkimi pływającymi farfoclami. Aromat bardzo przyjemny, intensywnie rodzynkowy, daktylowy, karmelowy, waniliowy, z ziołowo przyprawowym dopełnieniem. W smaku jest trochę miodowo-winogronowej słodyczy, odrobina morelowej kwaskowatości, sporo przypraw, melasa i lekka, pikantno-cynamonowa goryczka z cierpkim posmakiem. Wysycenie średnie do wysokiego, szczypiące, ładnie schowany alkohol, niby dość pełne choć rzadkie w odbiorze.
Kolejne udane piwo od Abbaye, choć w tym przypadku całość zaburza brzydki wygląd trunku i mniej przemawiający do mnie pikantny finisz całości...

fantti (1008) - FINLAND - SEP 26, 2016
Pullo @ Bierpaleis, Brugge. Kaatuu tulppaaniin punertavan ruskeana ja sameana, noin 2 sormen paksuisella vaahdolla. Tuoksussa on vahvimpana paahdettua pähkinää, marjaisuus, tumma hedelmäisyys ja mausteisuus on alla. Maku on marjaisan mausteinen ja yrttinen, pähkinääkin on edelleen reilusti joukossa. Suutuntuma on makeahko ja suht täyteläinen, hiilihappojakin on suht reilusti. Hyvin pähkinäinen, jopa english strong alemainen ote. Marjaisuus tulee maussa hyvin vahvasti (onneksi) mukaan, muuten tämä voisi olla aika haastava.

Punertavanruskea olut paksulla, pitsiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Hiivaa kaatuu lasiin pullon pohjalta aika reilu annos. Tuoksu on houkutteleva, jouluisen makea ja syvän siirappinen ja mämminen. Maun osalta ensimmäisenä aistii karamellisen/sokerisen makeuden. Paahteisuus ja makea lakritsisuus hallitsee tämän jälkeen maussa. Vahvasti kermaisen maltainen maku houkuttelee maistamaan lisää. Hiilihappoa on vain aavistuksen verran. Jälkimaussa pientä mausteisuutta ja katkeroa tasapainottamassa laadukasta kokonaisuutta. Alkoholi on piilossa ja tämä on yllättävän helppoa juotavaa. Voisiko runko olla vielä aavistuksen tukevampi. Joka tapauksessa todellinen laatuolut ja tällaisia jouluoluita pitäisi saada Alkoon.

Gushing. Brown colour, clear, but there’s lots of yeast, quite nice creamy head. Very high carbonation. Aroma: biscuits, caramel, bread, some wionous notes, yeasts, spices, clove, toast, green apple, alcohol after warming. Full body, lots of sweetnes, but there’s also some fruity sourness. Lots of yeast in flavour, some clove, ester fruits. Low bitterness, in the end some earthy notes and alcohol (nice covered when cold, aleter becoming annoying).
