BigMomma's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
BigMomma (242) - Leuven, - AUG 31, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2012 Details: 50cl bottle, lot 573.
Tasting notes: Pours a black color with a dark red shine and a thick beige white head. Sweet complex aroma, malt, caramel, slight hint of alcohol, soft, creamy, slight vinious touch, dried fruit, interesting. Sweet big, fat flavor, malty, caramel, roasted nuts, gentle alcohol burn, subtle bitterness, long dry finish. Thick syrupy mouthfeel, very low carbonization.
Conclusion: A big, fat beer which is well matured and hides it high alcohol content quite well but lets you experience some of it, unfortunately the carbonization is a bit low but that isn’t unexpected from a high ABV barrel aged beer.

DiarmaidBHK (4907) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2017
Draft at Jealous Monk. Pours Coca Cola brown with a thin khaki head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Big wood and red wine notes on the nose. Solid roasted malt on the tongue along with some wood notes. Hides it’s booze very well. Solid.

R4N5H (1182) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2017
On tap at Brasserie Beck, Washington DC on 08-Mar-2017. Reddish brown colour with a small off-white head. Aroma of berries and wine. Medium to full body and soft carbonation. Taste of sweet malt, cherry, raspberries and oak. Tart and fruity, with the bordeaux barrel raging adding some complexity to this lovely beer. Excellent.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2017 Draft at Khyber Pass. Muddled dark ruby red pour. No head. Deep red wine barrels. Currants. Dark sour cherry. Apple cores. Blood oranges. Truffles. Hints of toffee and molasses. Intense, very intense!

olio (10274) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 23, 2017
Tap @ Gastropub Tuulensuu.
Pours hazy amber color with a large off-white head. Sweet ripe fruits on the nose, plums and raisins mostly, lots of caramel and molasses, subtle earthy notes and yeast. Flavor starts sticky sugary sweet, ripe fruits, caramel, molasses, faint licorice, spices and yeast, subtle sourish notes on the background. Some alcohol warmth at the end, lingering spicy and sweet aftertaste. Quite nice Quad with a mild sour twist.

Turboninja (763) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 11, 2017
[email protected], Tampere, Finland. Matured for at least 1 year in cellar.
Ar: Medium aroma with earthy nuances of cherry and some red berries.
Ap: Deep red color with light beige, creamy head.
Ta: Strong, averagely balanced taste with cellar flavored red berries, some slightly bitter malts, caramel and winery notes. Medium taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with sweetish malts and berries.
Pa: Medium/strong body with medium carbonation.
Ov: Overall, strong/earthy cellar notes makes this product distinctive. Sweet nuances probably dampen malts and makes the product slightly simple. Still, very good.

Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, dark fruit, berries, chocolate, bread and roasted malts.

Turbid/opaque dark orange/dark brown beer with a slight/medium off-white/beige head.

Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, dark fruit, berries and chocolate; ends slightly? bitter and dry with bread and roasted malts.

This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Very sweet start with loads of fruit, with some roasted malts shining through at the end; creating a perfect chocolate in the middle as well.
