Ibrew2or3 (8860) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2013
33cl bottle, big thanks to sebletitje for picking this up for me, pours with a clear deep copper body that supports a fairly tight tan head of foam. The aroma offers up a mix of sticky sweet malts, caramel, molasses, a bit of toffee and chocolate malts where the chocolate note seems out of place yet still works here nicely somehow. In the background I also get prunes and figs and a bit of black pepper as well as a modest sense of booze especially for such a huge beer. The taste asserts itself as a smooth slick sipper where I get prunes and raisins moving into slightly brighter notes of spicy Belgian yeast. Behind those notes is a smooth sweet caramel and maltiness and slivers of toffee. I’m really enjoying this sipper. Yum.

kermis (14759) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle shared. Pours hazy brown with tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, toffee, spice, straw and light alcohol. Flavour is fairly heavy sweet. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Fairly nice, but the ABV is too high.

Pours hazy mahogany into a snifter. White head quickly recedes to mottle surface. Toffee and pit fruit aromas. Dark caramel and toasted nuts upfront turning warm in the lasting resin and chestnut finish.

Sweaty yeasty aroma, caramel, well developed, basement. Rich flavour with concentrated fruits and sweet sticky notes. Apple pie, Oatmeal cookies and still sort of refreshing. Dangerous! Love the sticky concentrate. Great stuff. (After Deanso’s tasting)
