Bottle shared with Višnja666. Thanks! Dark amber, minimal off-white head. Aromatic, marzipan, caramel, cola, dried fruits, berries and wood. Sweet with dark cherry flavour. Sticky, light to medium body, soft carbonation, alcohol is hidden, sweet finish. Very interesting, nicely made, although one might not be satisfied with some outcomes.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2017 This murky, amber color beer is a perfect match with a dish like ‘stoofvlees’. It has the warmth of a double, but the spicyness of a quadrupple. Really nice beer!

Piwo z kategorii rozgrzewających, choć alkohol tu na szczęście nie wychodzi na wierzch. W odczuciu był to taki Belgian Strong Ale z ziołową goryczką, na szczęście nie perfumowaną. Po ogrzaniu wychodzą biszkopty i herbatniki. Smaczne, choć raczej proste piwo.

Piepenhenrich (1255) - Steinbach, GERMANY - NOV 10, 2017
From bottle. Pours opaque brown with a stable beige head. Intense compositon of flavors which is dominated by an alcoholic taste of booze, thus not exactly what I desire a top-class beer to be.

Bottle, 330 ml, courtesy of JFK10000. Shared with him and Max. Pours hazy brown, medium off-white head. Spicy, herbal, malty, caramel, herbal, some peppermint. Medium bodied. Interesting.

8.5% Gift from Mat. Bday Pours from the bottle murky brown with almost no head aroma of honey and toast, a little sweet and boozey. Slightly sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pyobon (1516) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 24, 2017
(Bottle) Pours cloudy amber brown with thin off-white head - not the prettiest beer. Nice and unusual aroma - toffee, raisins, spices. Medium bodied, slight stickiness with good carbonation. Great taste - toffee malt provides a rich somewhat sweet backbone with plenty of interesting spicy and herbal notes. Interesting, unusual and very drinkable.

Thanks Domagoj M! I was 300% sure I'd had it before, apparently not. Yay. Murky brown body with an off white head. Strong spicy aroma, heavy on the gale I assume (came off somewhere between eucalyptus, mint and fennel), fighting a heavy, heavy dark maltiness. While the heavy maltiness remains in the taste, it's very well balanced by the fresh herbal notes, well hidden alcohol. Interesting, nice, a very fine beer.
