Super sweet dark fruit molasses honey. Dark brown amber with a quickly fading off white head that leaves a small amount of thin foam on the top and around the edges of the glass. Figs, plumbs, dates. Very smooth. Velvety mouthfeel. A dry finish. I get some dry wine qualities at the end. Like a not quite so big Belgian quad. Very nice.

mateuszk (2670) - Poznań, POLAND - AUG 27, 2016
Bottle. Amber in colour, white low head. Sweet, malty with caramel, woody notes, dried fruits too. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Finish is bitter with some alcoholic taste.

Ritzn (1311) - GERMANY - AUG 25, 2016
Aroma is a heavy malty body, mocca, cookie dough, some fruity hoppy stuff as well, maybe orange. Taste is a heavy mocca bitterness with a sparkling citric sourness and a cake-like sweetness. Mouthfeel is crispy, full body, heavy, a little spicyness in the finish. Some clove and phenolic alcohol notes in the end. Very intresting and unique but not outstanding. According to ratebeer the best Japanese beer I had during my stay in Japan (no 23 at the moment). But for me personally it was only in the best 80%.

I’m a beginner, so I don’t have a detailed comment, but I like this beer a lot.

invinoveritas (156) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2016
Pours a cloudy ochre with virtually no head. Strong initial nose of mixed stone fruits which mellows with time. Thick, heady, sherried brew to taste but a bit too intense and under- not to say un-balanced.

3.9
LazyPyro (1124) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2016
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Hazy copper colour with a one finger off-white head. Aroma of malts, sweet caramel, dark fruit, yeast, spices. Sweet malty taste, dark fruit, hint of sake. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Decent beer.

Bouteille 33 cl - couleur cuivrée, belle mousse, odeur très agréable sur le caramel, les pruneaux, les fruits noirs, on retrouve ces éléments sur le goût qui assez complexe, finale sur le caramel

Hazy brown colour. Aroma and flavour are definitely malt heavy with lots of caramel sweetness. Has a very full bodied feel. Nice.

Many thanks for this beer to kevnic2008. Pianka ladna spora lecz szybko opada. Ladna barwa ciemno pomaranczowa z refleksami jasnej czerwieni. Aromatyczne, glownie aronia. W smaku Deren i truskawki, bardzo owocowe, słodkawe trochę za bardzo jak dla mnie, alkohol na szczęście ukryty. Podobne do Barley Wine. Troche brakowało kontry na te slodowosc, przydalo by się więcej chmielu w smaku i kwaskowosci, no ale i tak dobre piwo. Bardzo mętne.
