Panzerfaust (877) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, - JUL 25, 2012
Bottle from Whole Foods Market, Coddingtown, Santa Rosa, California. Pours a dark brown color with reddish hues and a giant long-legged off-white head that diminishes slowly into a perfect lacing and film. Smell is yeasty, fruity with some earthy and lactic touches. Very complex! It has notes of toffee, milk, dulce-de-leche, blueberries, blackberries, black currants, raisins, overripe apples, liquor, banana with palm syrup, sour cherries... I could keep going all day. The earthy smell is more obvious after a while. Taste is incredibly complex and intense, showing different aspects in every part of the mouth. Sweet and fruity flavor that shows notes of berries, cognac, honey, toffee, earth and nuts. This is a collossal Abt. Highly warming, it leaves a trail of warmth down the throat and the esophagus. Finish shows some booze. Different and so much more complex than anything else I’ve tried so far.

Robe brun foncé. Nez sur le café, les dates, le chocolat. Saveurs torréfiées. Une grande longueur en bouche. A mon goût moins lourde que la Rochefort 8.

oblaten (47) - SPAIN - JAN 10, 2018
Cerveza de abadía trapista cuádruple. Color marrón oscuro. Poca-media espuma que desaparece. Aroma atrayente y fascinante. Gusto complejo y fantástico. Ciruela, uva pasa, cafè, caramelo, vino de Oporto. Cuerpo fuerte y denso. Algo de barrica. En general dulce. Retrogusto complejo, un poco seco y alcohólico. Alcohol bien camuflado. Una excelente cerveza.

malibrat (104) - Pula, CROATIA - JAN 8, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2018 Pivo u flaši 0,33. Šta reći o ovom pivu? Boja tamno-smećkasta sa malom pjenom. Miris je prekrasan ! Suho voće , možda i malo banane. Okus ; grožđice koji naročito dolazi do izražaja kad se pivo zadrži i promućka u ustima i onda taj miris ode u nos , i onda sa kiselkašćošću stvara miris slatkog vina. Općenito je ovo pivo najbliže (po okusu i mirisu) kao da pijete neko desertno vino npr. Prošek , samo gaziranije , i zato jer tu se hmelj uopće ne osjeti. Naravno tu je i tamni slad i kvasac koji mu daje laganu kiselkastost , ali ta fina lagana gorčina koja na kraju ostaje u ustima , zajedno sa tom slatkoćom i kiselkaščošću daje jedinstven okus ! I sad na kraju alkohol. Pazite to pivo ima 11,3% alkohola !! ...ali to se ne osjeti sve do pred kraj , a to meni znači oko 40 minuta pijuckanja , i to je ono šta se u pivarstvu zove 'vrhunski balans' okusa i alkohola , i to je ono šta ovo pivo čini vrhom svjetskog pivarstva !P. S. Kad kažem da to pivo 'sliči' na neko desertno vino kao npr. Prošek , pod time sam mislio da će nekome ko slučajno proba ovo pivo a da nikada nije pio ništa osim Lagera , ovo pivo prije sličiti na Prošek nego na Karlovačko ....ali da takvom pivu treba pristupati kao da piješ 'vino' to stoji , a to pretpostavljam već znaju svi ljubitelji Belgijskih 'jakih' piva ! Ta se piva 'pijuckaju' kao čaša 'dobrog vina!' , zbog svoje količine alkohola i kompleksnosti okusa !
