Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Poured form 12 oz brick bottle. Pours a nice dark amber color with a light tan foamy head that lasts a good while. Aroma is sweet fruit, malty, with the notes of bananas and alcohol. Flavor is initially a nice sweet malt fruit flavor which turns into a nice ester/banana alcohol flavor at the end. The great thing is this flavor transitions to the backend very smoothly with a long lasting end flavor. Mouthfell is silky and the carbonation is medium-above average. This is an awesome beer. Did this side by side with Abt. 12 and Roch. 10. Final response was W12>A12>R10. A12 was close and well worth the price point but W12 is definitely better.

Kulminator, Antwerpen, Tuesday July 25, 2017 THIS BEER IS SIMPLY THE BEST!!! Nothing more to say. I will just add that I had a wonderful moment with my wife. She is not a beerlover at all but she did really like this beer.

Piwo nr 500 recenzowane na ratebeer, wiec z tej okazji wieloletni nr 1 tego serwisu. W aromacie fenole, estry, figi, rodzynki, ciasto drozdzowe, przyjemnie. W wygladzie ciemna czerwien wpadajaca w braz, piana gesta, bezowa, zdobiaca szklo. W smaku wyrazna slodycz, figi, rodzynki, ciemne owoce, nuty szlachetnych destylatów, gozdziki. Bogate, eleganckie, swietnie ulozone. Pijalnosc wysoka jak na taka zawartosc alkoholu, przyjemne rozgrzewanie po kazdym lyku. Ogólnie pyszne, eleganckie, ulozone piwo, klasa.

Ciemnej barwy z piekna, gesta piana. Piwo pachnie ciemnymi, suszonymi owocami, jest równiez slodka karmelowa nuta. W smaku gladkie, szlachetny alkohol delikatnie rozgrzewa na finiszu. Niesamowicie pijalne. Genialne.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2017 On bottle @Ølfred - Aarhus Streetfood Pours red/black and hazy, with beautiful white head Impressive taste of toffee and dark chocolate, which gives a kind of sweet bitterness - it stays in your mouth in an eternity! Wouldn’t be able to drink a whole by my self though.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2017 Got to enjoy these while living in Belgium a few years ago. Worth the work to get a couple of cases through the Abbey.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2017 Bottle shared at home with shonali. To many more years! Murky brown colour, floating yeast chunks, head disappears almost immediately. Nose is dried fruits, plum, raisins. Taste is also dried fruity, strong plum notes, some candy sugar, keksz. Sweet, but not geil. Some alcoholic warmth in the end. Very nice beer overall. Definitly one of the best beers out there, shame its yeasty as hell.

Wow finally found a bottle to consume. Poured in tulip glass ...decent lacing and small head...looks like dark apple cider. Sip...pear plum apricot caramel toffee molasses all at once. Very very smooth little bitter. Yup best I’ve had so far!
