rouhlas (2897) - GREECE - APR 1, 2016
330 ml bottle at home, thanks to Douberd! Bottled on 2015/04/01 so its exactly one year in the bottle. Black color with nice beige head. Malty aroma, dark dried fruits, wood, vinous, when it gets warmer there are coffee notes, some chocolate, smoked notes too. Sweet, bitter and acidic taste like aroma with smoked wood notes again when it gets warmer. Light to medium oily body with soft carbonation.

Achel (391) - Ioannina, GREECE - MAR 25, 2016
What a treat. Pours a rich, brown black with a bubbly, beige head. Big roast aroma, lots of wood, hard alcohol and coffee. Huge flavor, thick and sweet, lots of mocha, burnt brown sugar, roasted malts, peat, scorched earth. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Big warming finish, peat to spare, oak, more mocha and roast. Superb beer

martjoobolut (3380) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 20, 2016
0,33L bottle, no 905, bottled 01.04.2015 (from etre gourmet). Pours black with light brown head the head stays for a moment. Aroma is intense oak, vinous, fruits, raisins, sweetness, roast. Flavor is sour, sweet and bitter, oak, vinous, roast, malt, dark chocolate. Finish is vinous, slightly dry-bitter with some alcohol warmth. Alcohol is very well covered. Overall: more barrel driven than beer driven, but still a great complex sipper.

Ysok02 (1116) - Mons, BELGIUM - FEB 19, 2016
Robe brune presque noire, mousse peu abondante. Nez sur le chocolat amer, une note lacte, du caf au lait, un peu triqu dans lensemble. Par contre lattaque de bouche est superbe sur un cot moelleux, de la complexit, de la longueur, de la puissance et une finale persistante et crmeuse. Un trs grande bire de fin de soire. A dguster tranquillement.

__Rb81 (688) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours dark with a tan head. Vinous aroma, caramel, dark fruits, berries, wood, chocolate, alcohol. Taste is moderate sweet, light sour, vinous, dark fruits, caramel, chocolate towards the end as well as in the aftertaste. Quite nice, but not sure if really intended like this.

Douberd (5028) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2016
(De Molen Tsarina Esra Reserva) Bottle 330 ml, bottled on April 1st 15. Served into a snifter at home, ABV 11% Black coloured body, small and thick brown head on top, with good retention. Aroma has some sour notes, some funk, fruity touches, faint roasted malts. On the taste the same sour notes can be found, not sure if intented or not, seem to fade a bit aftet the beer has breathed for a while though, cherries, fruity touches, dark roasted malts, coal, well hidden alcohol. Medium body, sharp carbonation. Quite good, I must say I expected something richer though.

Un imperial porter qui loue la gloire des tsarines, et surtout dEsra, puisquil va mme dans sa rserva!! Niveau abv de 11 % pour 23,4 plato, et pas moins de 93 ebu. Nous avons bien sr ici la version en barrel aged. Les malts sont en pils, cara, munich et choco. Il y aussi du froment. Le houblonnage est en premiant et sladek. Mon exemplaire navait mme pas un an, il naurait eu son anniversaire quau 1er avril, alors que le brasseur parle dune validit jusquen 2040!!!!!!!� Mais je nai pas pu attendre 25 ans mea culpa!! Couleur noir quasi intgral (ebc 385 !!). Lger voile beige diaphane sur ce breuvage charbon. Armes de ft, vin de grand calibre, tanin, pointe de groseilles noires et cassis. 1re bouche souple au prodigieux ensemble vin/ft/malt. Arrire-bouche complexe, fine, longue. 2me grandiose sur bois/tanin/pruneau. Arrire-bouche inoue. 3me la grande harmonie, digne dun trs grand vin. Arrire-bouche savoureuse souhait, moelleuse. Longueur qui est un vritable mmorial au vin, et encore nous parlons des trs grands vins du Mdoc... Jambes huileuses (comme lesdits vins.. divins vins). Levure dense, trs labore, trs grande ligne. Alcool qui est une pure merveille qui connat son travail sur les saveurs. Finale qui est une splendeur des splendeurs .. on va dvelopper dans la conclusion CONCLUSION: bire qui est une caverne dAli Baba, dans le plein et bon sens du terme. Tout y est, et plus si affinits Mais je me disperse dans les mille et une nuits!!! Mea culpa, mea esra, mea maxima Esra!!! Allluia, et sois bnie, ma tsarine, au firmament dAli Baba rserva o tu recevras un 500 sur 100, dans 25 ans ...
