SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2012
Une bouteille de la batch 360. Un liquide vraisemblablement embouteillé le 28.04.11 et à son meilleur avant le 28.04.13. Une robe lourdement brune et sa mousse beige qui forme rapidement un anneau. Un bouquet de fruits foncés et de malts enfumés qui se choquent à des notes de café, de chocolat et de réglisse. Au goût, des pruneaux et des dattes sur des grains de café et des notes de réglisse qui ont brièvement séjournés dans un fumoir. En bouche, un corps limité avec un pétillement très notable. Une texture qui rappelle la crème à 5% de matière grasse. Une finale sur des céréales rôties et torréfiées qui émettent des bruits acidifiés et surets. En bref, moyennement facile à boire.

My Bottom Line :
Deep raisins, toasted pumpernickel bread and straight rye evolve into fieldberry jam and light roast.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A creamy sheet of foam tops the prune-edged darkness.
-Malt aromas and flavor are riveting.
-There are a few licorice-like undercurrents.
-Body is plump.
-Its finish is a bit too storyless for me. Underhopped, perhaps?

GBZ59 (1217) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - JUL 5, 2012
Botella de 500ml. Vaso de ½ Pinta. Saboreada en jul´12. Color ámbar muy oscuro y rubí intenso a contraluz. Corona beige, tupida, de burbuja pequeña y bastante buena retención. El perfil aromático es genial: maltas torrefactas, intenso toque herbal y especiado, granos de café quemados, pan quemado, trazos de regaliz…Entrada suave de dulce malteado redondeado por matices de café, cacao y pan. Amargor en el intermedio. Textura oleosa y paladar complejo y aterciopelado. Cuerpo medio/intenso y carbonatación moderada/ligera. Largo final de café. El bien enmascarado ABV permiten que la experiencia sea refrescante y asimilable. 500ml bottle. ½ Pint glass. Enjoyed on jul´12. Very dark amber color, deep ruby to the light. Beige, close, small bubbled, crown. Fairly good retention. Aroma profile is great: roasted malts, intense herbal & spiced touch, burnt coffee, burnt bread, hints of licorice…Smooth sweet malty upfront rounded by coffee, cocoa & bready hues. Bitterness in the middle. Oily texture. Complex & velvet palate. Medium to full body, moderate to soft carbonation. Coffee long finish. ABV well masked resolves into a refreshing & drinkable experience.

50 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori. Rated on 22.12.2010
Aroma has some smoke and roasted coffee. Flavout is roasted with sweetish malt, some woody notes, smoke, ash and hints of licorice. Interesting and somewhat unique.

23.12.2012. 0,5l Bottle. Batch 360. Dark brown colour with tan head. Lively carbonated. A little burnt malty aroma. Strong beer with very nice strong bitterness. Nice hoppy bitterness that ends with sweetness. Very good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 20, 2012
50cl bottle, 08.2010. Pours a cloudy brown with a creamy offwhite head. Smells of strong malt, dried red berries, raisin. Tastes of a strong sweetness, light bitterness, some wood, raisin. Medium body, soft carbonation, creamy texture. A beautiful beer.

NikkTwist (3302) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2012
Draft at Eulogy. Poured a dark chewy brown with some tan foam. Complex malty flavors. Sticky on the tongue but not too sweet. Some smoke and sour in the mix. Nothing overpowers. Nice and complicated though not many fruit notes. Lingering flavor. Very nice.

sfhodense (4788) - Odense NØ, DENMARK - APR 16, 2012
