corkyrory66 (1810) - BELGIUM - OCT 31, 2015
A vnement exceptionnel, bire exceptionnelle Pour mon 1000 me rating, je voulais une clbration digne de ce grand moment. Bien sr, jai dj dgust cette bire, je connais sa valeur dexception, ce nest donc pas la premire, et ce ne sera certainement pas la dernire!!! Bouteille srigraphie classe de 75 cl, avec bouchon de lige qualit diam, et mdaille dore. Couleur ambre roux, avec un lger voile. Bulles fines et lentes. Mousse beige crmeuse. Armes de bois de ft, raisins de vendanges tardives, figues, dattes, pointe de miel. 1re bouche souple veloute, limpression vineuse extrme. Arrire-bouche riche de mille nuances. 2me avec des tannins superbes, et de la vendange tardive merveilleuse. Arrire-bouche longue et complexe. 3me o le velout de la texture accompagne les saveurs extraordinaires. Arrire-bouche dun impact norme. De la classe, de la super classe, de lextra classe!! Longueur qui est un Everest de la bire, en passant par les sommets des Andes Jambes huileuses, fines. Levure magnifique. Alcool qui est un pur modle de ce quune bire peut faire, un cas dcole pour les amateurs de quadruple. Il ne sagit pas bien sr dun accompagnement des saveurs, mais dune direction nergique comme le ferait un super coach, avec un dosage des capacits de chacun (ici je te pousse la levure, ici je te pousse le malt, ici je te pousse le houblon ), et bien sr de lharmonie de lensemble avec la classe dun chef dorchestre de niveau mondial. Finale divine. CONCLUSION: une bire qui est un plus quune rvlation, un petit miracle (ou un grand miracle, selon votre degr de croyance ). Cette bire ne peut tre classe dans un chiffrement sur 10, et a fortiori sur 5 lamricaine , cest un peu comme les cols du tour de France classs hors catgorie Donc, puisque nous devons nous frotter avec les 5 de Ratebeer, nous dirons que cette bire vaut 3 fois un 5, ou pour parler plus simplement un 555 sur 100, rejoignant ainsi par exemple la Westmalle triple (ce qui est, nous lavouerons sans problme, une rfrence ultime ).

Marduk (7174) - Reval, ESTONIA - OCT 2, 2015
750ml bottle (thanks martjoobolut). Murky brown color. Small size, white head, stays. Sour, acidic, apples, prunes in aroma. Prunes, sweetish, twiggy, minerals, apples, malty in taste. Papery sour aftertaste. So messy.

FatPhil (15563) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 30, 2015
750ml bottle (300e of overpriced beer tasting) - thanks martjoobolut!
Rubbery aroma, some apple, in fact cider. Harsh palate. Have I thrown up in my mouth, as this is so acidic, and really unpleasant. Some wininess, sharp and harsh. Not wine - champagne, and very harsh and acidic. A style I pretty much detest.

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - SEP 29, 2015
Bottle in Brussels. Nice orange body with big head. Nose is sweet, grapes, malt and sourness. Taste lots of sugar, fruits and raisins. Some caramel and toffee. What a nice blend. Really well done.

suurjuust (3282) - ESTONIA - SEP 26, 2015
Slightly hazy amber, small off-white head. Nose is fruity, tart vinous notes, some sugars, apple peel, figs. Flavor is sugars and malt, fruit notes, hop notes, dryness in the finish. Dry palate. Flavor is somewhat simplistic and empty.

suprchunk (2986) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2015
Slight golden pour. Big white head that subsides quickly. Little lacing. Nose is sugary sweet with some hops. Not very smooth in the mouth either. Not very rich as well. Taste is a very dry sweetness. Okay, but definitely not worth the money charged. Anywhere.

Bottle, 750 ml form Svijet Piva. Shared with Miro and JFK10000. Pours orange, off-white head. Sweet, caramel malts, ripe fruits, wood, some yeast, bit sourish, complex. Interesting and complex brew.
