dark brown colour, moderate sized creamy beige head; aroma of dried cherry, chocolate, leather and earthy notes, some peach, hints of smoke and maybe banana; taste is the same with mild lactic acid, sweetened cocoa powder and bread yeast notes; quite unique Belgian strong ale

Maakun (4457) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2016
Bottle at home. Dark brown with nice creamy beige head. Lots of cloves, caramel, allspice, banana bread, raisins, cinnamon, overripe fruits, light cocoa, bakers yeast. It’s actually quite bready but with lots of dark malts and spices too. Soft dried flowers in the finish and on the nose. Over medium sweet and medium bodied. Feels a bit sugary, but not too full bodied, still quite drinkable. Decent beer but lots of spices in here...

Wolfbass (1128) - Firenze, ITALY - SEP 13, 2016
Una belgian strong ale, davvero diversa, che ha il suo potere alcolico, ma mascherato con una morbidezza inaspettata e molto piacevole.

Flaska på Stallyktan, Örebro. Brunmurken vätska med liten beigebrun skumkrona. Rejäla bitar i bottensatsen som jag nog inte borde hällt upp. Sötsyrlig doft med rågiga och bäriga toner. Körsbär, vingummi, madeira, något kryddig. Medelstor kropp. Söta kolatoner jämte lite mer torra och rostade inslag av råg och pumpernickel. Ganska tydlig beska och bittra inslag.

Palme (4329) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2016
0.33l swingtop bottle. On my way from the kitchen to my living room it wanted out of the bottle. No gush, but a slow stream. The beer itself is a deep dark brown one with a little reddish hue and a small dark grey/brown top. A bit low on the nose perhaps. I get a good amount of sweetness here. Sugary dark knekk sweetness with chocolate, sour red currants and some yeast. It has a soft oily almost gliding mouthfeel and the carbonation is soft to average. Tastes alright. I have no idea what genre this is, but that doesn’t really matter. Light chocolaty, nesquick, cardboard and a dry feeling in the mountains have. It’s a bit too sweet to be called balanced. Drinks alright, but a tad to far out there on the sweet side for being true sessionabble. 19.10.2013

33cl bottle shared at home. Hazy dark orange with a medium slightly off-white head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Quite sweet with subtle bitter tones. Caramel, peach, malts, straw and herbs. Quite nice.

BenL8 (89) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 19, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours hazy brown with lots of yeast sediment. Some head. Very estery aroma, very fruity and banana aroma, spicy, toasty, and darkish malts. Medium-heavy body. Very fruity and estery, spicy and peppery, dark/toasted malts, quite bitter, chocolate. Great bitter, herbal finish. Really nice!
