Geur van champagnegist of cidergist. Na drinken verdwijnt schuim snel net als bij cider. Kan ook komen omdat ik een vette bek heb van het eten van gerookte makreel.Nootachtige smaken richting caramel een zoet in dit bier die ik wel kan waarderen. Komt in sjieke fles maar is zo goed als een goed gelukte homebrew waar niks mis mee is. Integedeel bier mag ongefilterd zijn. En complex. De alcohol gaat mooi samen met het caramel waardoor deze niet zo opvalt. Nice DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Poured into a goblet. BBE 2011.
3.5 A: Murky light brown color. A finger and a half of foamy off-white head that fell quickly. Oh well, this is a big beer, I’ll cut it some slack.
3.5 S: Toastiness and caramel lead the way. Yeasty breadiness. Candied dark fruits, but no fruit really sticks out. It’s more of a generic fruitiness, though if I had to pick, I’d say dates were the focus. Peppery from the yeast. Not a lot of complexity, but it’s still quite pleasant. The booze is hidden quite well.
3.5 T: Same major flavors as the nose. Toastiness, caramel, candied dates and other assorted fruit, and hints of vanilla. Peppery spiciness and breadiness from the yeast. You can taste the booze, but it doesn’t seem like it’s 12%.
3.75 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation with a nice spritziness to it. Smooth for how potent it is.
3.25 D: It’s good, but there’s better out there. Worth a try if you stumble upon it.

750 ml bottle - tasted at home - taken from notes. Pours clear amber with a steady head. Aroma of mailt, nuts and caramel. Medium body but with considerable alcohol burn. Taste is malt, spices and nuts. Svesse (8803) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2013
(Bottle, as "Scaldis Refermentée") Golden amber colour with brief, foamy, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of apricots, peaches, almonds, orange peel, apple juice, esters and treacle. Fruity, malty taste with dried apricots, orange, almonds, marzipan, orange marmalade, brown sugar, caramel and a generous spicy bitterness in a finish with a certain alcohol glow. Almost full body, quite sweet. Sweetness is quite well balanced by the malt and the earthy, spicy bitterness. Very nice. maekchu (4058) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 21, 2013
Bottle. Aged one-and-a-half year years. Big sweet caramelly aroma, some age is evident. Bright gold/amber. Massive sugary initial / alc. hits the pit of the stomach / smooth sweet warming finish. Medium body. Good stuff. A bit sweet and strong for my taste, but still an interesting tipple.

Bottled. Mineral, caramel nose, peach, esters. Amber colored with floaties. Sweet caramel flavor, fruity, tangy, alcohol. Good. Smoother than the smaller bottles.

Another that doesn't disappoint. If you're looking for a smooth but crisp amber that packs a punch, this is the stuff!

Cloudy gold with small off-white head and light oily lacing. Aroma is malty with weak vinous notes and some banana. Flavor has nice maltyness and sweet bubblegum. Thick and oily, but really easy drinking for 12% dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2012
Bottle @ home. Aroma is murky fruit, caramel, molasses. Flavour is the same with an added sharp alcohol note. Okay.
