mgajdaczewa (1921) - Katowice, POLAND - FEB 12, 2016
W aromacie suszone owoce, karmel, cukier, niezbyt zachęcająco. W smaku zaskakująco puste, zbyt wysoko nasycone, karmel i cukier. Brak szlachetnych nut drożdżowych. Przeciętne piwo.

mandaritto (244) - LATVIA - JAN 15, 2016
Some corianre in this one, very bad aroma. Kind of a lager+coriandre. Not so bad though. At first caramel, coriandre, fruity, but then the hopps kicked in. It would be much nicer if the watery lagerish aftertaste didnt last... drinkable brew though

Vells (1755) - Rīga, LATVIA - JAN 15, 2016
Quite sad brew.. If aroma at first seems boozy, but dried fruits kinda welcomes, then first sips are, too harsh, too boozy, too unbalanced, and too watery in finish.. Some caramel, fark fruits floating around. Light sweetness with light bitterness. Boring.. disappointing for Belgian strong..

kajser27 (1664) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 24, 2015
Brown colored, hazy, some sediment and floaters, medium beige creamy head. Aroma is of brown sugar, caramel, dark fruits, apples, bit yeast. Taste is medium sweet brown sugar and caramel, apple, candy dark fruity, slightly roasted, some yeast. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, sticky. Nothing special really...

Jultsu (858) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2015
BBE 05-2015. Tummanmustanpunainen vri, maan tuoksu jossa ripaus maustetta (pippuri?) ja alkoholia. Maku jatkaa samoilla linjoilla, alkoholia lievsti ensipuraisussa ja maustetta, jlkimaku hivenen vljhtneempi mutta jonkinlainen runko lytyy. Liek ollut parempaa tuoreempana?
