Scrumpy369 (607) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 15, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2017 Bottle at hopaholic. Deep reddish amberish copper colour head disappears immediately. Nose is sweetness light molasses, faint coffee. As it gets warmer the foffee nptes disappear and caramel takes its place. Taste is light sweetness, strong cane sugary notes. Strong, rich molasses. Caramel, burn sugars, raisins. Low carbonation smooth palate. Very nice and complex. A perfect dessert.

Fules (999) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - DEC 24, 2016
Kicsi, gyorsan elolvadó hab, barna szín. Karamelles, aszalt gyümölcsös illatok, némi konyakos aromával. Erős, édes karamelles, aszalt szilvás, aszalt barackos ízvilág, némi konyakos aromával. Testes, enyhén kesernyés, alig szénsavas. Nagyon finom desszertsör, de egy picit túl van húzva.

alteregoo (1191) - POLAND - DEC 11, 2016
Pianka nieduża, szybko redukująca się do pierzynki. Barwa rubinowo czerwona, opalizująca. W aromacie sporo kontrastujących nutek - z jednej strony karmel, toffi i rodzynki, z drugiej kandyzowane owoce i przyprawy a z trzeciej czerwone wino, wiśnie i taniny. W smaku również wielowymiarowe, jest winogronowo daktylowa słodycz, jest likierowość, miód i toffi, jest kwaskowość porzeczek i wina, jest lekka pestkowo migdałowa goryczka, w posmakach cierpkość starej beczki, pikantność przypraw i kojarząca się z syropem na kaszel ziołowość. Alkohol rozgrzewający, ładnie ułożony, niskie do średniego, drobne wysycenie, pełne i lepkie, choć niegęste w odbiorze.
Złożone i ciekawe piwo, warte spróbowania, dla mnie odrobinę przeładowane i zbyt ziołowe, ale doceniam.

SvanteL (412) - SWEDEN - SEP 25, 2016
Vackert rubinröd. I doften finns en liten syrlighet av röda bär och rödvin, men ’ven sötare torkade frukter. I smaken märker man inte av syrligheten utan här är det bara söta torkade frukter och massor av russin i eftersmaken. Rund och mjuk. De Klomp: Barley Wine-provning

Erzengel (8225) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 14, 2016
10.4% ABV, Batch Nr. 221B-1, MHD 15.09.18. Intense sticky malty nose. The beer starts very sticky with lots of sweet caramel, herbs, butterscotch. Intense creamy roasty. Moderate bitterness in the aftertaste, fresh and round. Roasted hazelnuts, caramelised almonds. Great round and intense thick. Full and rich, great!
