Ruikt prima, schuim te snel weg. Melkachtige, vette en vrij slappe smaak. Belabberd mondgevoel

SarkyNorthener (5012) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2018
Bottle from Beerwulf online. Dark muggy Amber beer with small head. Aroma of malts, caramel and dried fruit. Taste is brown bread, malts, caramel, pepper and spice. Medium bodied. Very good.

SilkTork (5926) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2018
250ml dark bottle, unfiltered, from BeerWulf - my favourite online beer store. Oooooh - this is GOOD. Malty malty malty goodness. Deep, softy, downy oceans of malty goodness. Wrap yourself in it and sigh. If like me you love malty beers, you're going to LOVE this one. Oh my fucking God. This is heaven.

Gangstergafje (1358) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2018
03-01-2018; bottle; at home (bought at beerwulf.com, #21 of their Christmas advent calendar). The looks of the beer are nice. The beer has a nice amber/copper colour, somewhere in between it. There is some haziness. On top of the beer just a very slight layer of off-white foam is formed. Foam retention is little. Hardly anything is left. The smell of the beer is fine. It isn't bad. Not to strong nor special, but not bad. There are some nice malty aromas. This gives a nice gentle smoothness. There are also some fruity notes. Alcohol is also clearly present. The hops give a spicy and slightly herbal aroma, going well with the full malts. Nice. In my opinion it is more a Barley Wine than a Belgian Strong Ale though... The taste of the beer is also fine. It has a nice full sweetness from the malts. Alcohol also gives a rather sweet note. The hops give some bitterness. There is a slight touch of oak wood and vanilla...reminding me slightly of whiskey. Very nice. Full and slightly creamy yeast character. Nicely done. The palate of the beer is also nice. Smooth texture, medium full body and low carbonation. The finish of the beer is average. A slightly sour yeast touch, some sweet malts and a herbal hop character. All in all, a nice beer, but it misses some power.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2017 Nutty and mouty; this barley wine is a warm welcome on a rainy day or winter evening. Nice color, love the small bitterness at the end

Partagée avec mon cher Appiantiqua dans des verres"Mille et une bières",belle robe ambrée surmontée d'une fine mousse blanc cassé peu persistante avec une faible carbonatation.Le nez nous offre des arômes de fruits macérés,de vieil alcool avec des notes végétales et céréalées.La bouche est à l'image du nez avec une petite pointe d'orange amère et une légère amertume enveloppées par un alcool très chaleureux nous laissant sur une douceur fruitée très agréable.16/20

appiantiqua (281) - Lyon, FRANCE - DEC 1, 2017
Dégustée avec mon petit Kittenbieer dans un verre"Mille et une bières". Température de début 8 à 9°. Belle robe ambrée surmontée d'une fine et peu tenace mousse blanc cassé; faible carbonatation. Nez riche et plaisant: fruits macérés, vieil alcool, notes végétales et céréalières. Le goût reste sur des saveurs fruitées: orange amère, mandarine et autres agrume. L'ensemble est idéalement équilibré et sans lourdeur. Le palais est long et apporte une touche de fruits secs: noix de cajou. Une délicieuse bière fruitée en forme de Barley Wine. 16/20

Mpuntmuts (370) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2017 Brown orange not quite clear pour with no head. Sweet caramel, brown sugar, barley malts and some sweet dried fruits for aroma. Same goes for the taste but sticky sweet. Toffee candies and nougat. Great full body, low in bubbles. Like it but to sweet for me.

3.6
Svesse (8974) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2017
(Draught at Arendsnest, Amsterdam, 27 July 2017) Dark amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with dried fruit, raisins, caramel and vinous aromas of alcohol. Malty, fruity taste with notes of dried fruit, raisins, brown sugar, caramel and a mild spicy bitterness. Full body, quite sweet. Strong and vinous, but fairly well balanced, tasty and warming. Nice one.

28/VII/17 - 25cl bottle from a Jumbo supermarket @ holidays - BB: II/2019 (2017-1145)

Clear amber beer, small creamy off-white head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: sweet, malty, banana, some caramel, hint of vanilla, sugary. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Taste: lots and lots of banana, sweet, bit sugary, some alcohol, quite some caramel. Aftertaste: sweet, dried fruits, caramel, ripe banana, fudge, more ripe banana. Pretty decent!

3.5
Eructoblaster (4455) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 30, 2017
Bottle - 250ml. Hazy copper body with a thin, white foamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with barley sugar hints. Its well balanced malty taste carries fruity, barley sugar, and woody notes. Ends with a long, warming bittersweet finish.
