Panzerfaust (845) - 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 Ive tried so far.

One of my favourite beers. A complex beer that develops in the glass and in the bottle over time. Very dark, almost black colour. Aroma of alcohol and caramel. Wonderful taste with notes of resin and caramel.

geolgau (124) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - APR 23, 2017
0.33 bottle. Pours redish amber, with nice beige head and load of bubbles. Its like a living ecosystem in a glass. Aroma is huge: raspberry, sour cherries, liquorish sweetness, alcoholic spicyness. A medium to full body, topped with a light carbonation. Flavors are complex and subtle at the same time: rasperry jam, sour-cherry liquor, slight hint of yeast and sweet malts. Balance bertween alcoholic spicyness and warmth, sweetness is on point being tamed by a light bitterness at the end. Master class.

Dimitri8 (64) - Pabianice, POLAND - APR 15, 2017
Dość słaby aromat karmelowo alkoholowy. Dość wytrawne, alkoholowe. Nie rozumiem hypu tego piwa.

Understandably one of the best beer in the world. A bit high strong. Still a very straight drink that goes down too fast.

Ciemnobrązowe o wysokim nasyceniu. W aromacie śliwki i suszone owoce. W smaku podobnie + lekko wyczuwalny alkohol, ktry rozgrzewa przełyk. Niewielka goryczka.

Davros IX (127) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2017
It pours beautifully with a small head and a lovely colour in the glass. A nice aroma of burnt malt, but there was, to me, an extreme dichotomy between the taste and the mouthfeel. The taste was a typical dark ale, but the mouthfeel was something special; rich, velvety and a tang from the alcohol. It was really quite odd and while enjoyable as an experiment, it is not something that I will rush to experience again.
