lesifflebiere (1874) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2017
Le liquide est rouge brun foncé, est présente une carbonatation tout à fait minimale. Le nez est de riche toffee, caramel et sucre d’orge. La bouche est assez épaisse, très riche, du gros sucre d’orge agressif mais bien rond et généreux, pas excessif. Les houblons sont, par contre, pour ainsi dire absents, c’est tout malt, et pas de tranchant pour couper cette bière-dessert. Un exemple savoureux mais quelque peu débalancé pour ce style.

nephirem (507) - CROATIA - JAN 29, 2017
Bottle, 0.33l. Pours clear deep ruby body with one finger creamy white head. Very good head retention. Smell is malty and grainy, a bit on the sweet side. Some corn coming through. Medium body with prickly carbonation. Texture is average, somewhat creamy. Intensely sweet, a bit too much for my liking. Aroma is heavy malt, brown sugar, very sweet. Sticky. Caramel and toffee. Herbal. A bit grainy. Slight metallic acidity in the finish. Excessive sugar is hiding the ABV. Overall, not bad. A bit too sweet.
