KombatAle (129) - New Brunswick, - MAY 19, 2013
Pours clear dark red with a long lasting and light lacing frothy big beige head. Aroma is complex, spicy and very estery with anise, raisin, plum, roasted malt, caramel, bubblegum, pear, strawberry, red apple, apricot, banana and candy. Taste is medium sweet with a tiny acidic note. Body is medium, texture is light creamy and oily, carbonation is moderate. Finishes sweet.

Ciemnorubinowa barwa, nalewa się z obfitą pianą długo oblepiająca szkło. Silny, złożony aromat - wiśnie w czekoladzie, suszone owoce, miód, rodynki i trochę szlachetnego, likierowego alkoholu. W smaku wiśnie, śliwki w czekoladzie, karmel, bardzo pełne, wręcz słodkie. Lekko metaliczne. Świetne piwo z bardzo bogatym aromatem.

Color marron, predominio total de laas maltas, fruta madura, un dulzor que se hace incluso pesado, cansino. No es mi estilo

Fin fin øl, der er et snært at lakris, som går den mørkere end de andre i denne klasse. Men ja, det ligger sig hvor den skal være og det er ikke noget du falder ned fra stolen af :D

mviljamaa (158) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 31, 2017
Pours with a large and fluffy light brown head. Color is clear dark amber. Fruity and filling aroma has coffee and cappucino, roasted nuts, salty malt, light salty fish note, faint licorice aroma and a plethora of other faint aromas. The aroma is rather complex. Palate is very nice, carbonation is a bit weak, but suitable for the style. Quite rich taste is like a "watered down" stout. There’s a pronounced raisin note. Warming alcohol feels in the throat. Malty sweetness spreads to the mouth. The taste is tasty, but less complex than the aroma. Very filling and satisfying beer though and therefore very good value.

On tap at the Cafe Gollem Raamsteeg in Amsterdam. Brown pour with huge beige head. Aroma is almost overwhelming with dark fruits. Taste is sweet and complex and, oh, so good. Full mouthfeel. Wonderful and delicious!

En botella. Prácticamente sin espuma. Al ojo, muy líquida, de color marrón con destellos rojizos. Muy fresca a la nariz, aunque los tonos dulzones que presenta se esfuman rápidamente. De sabor dulzón pero para nada empalagoso.
