MoritzF (9612) - Ottobrunn, - OCT 20, 2012
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, reddish amber colour with a firm medium-sized tanned foamy head. Moderately piney and slightly citric hoppy aroma with notes of dark malt, caramel and liquorice. Bitter and moderately sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a soft carbonation. Dark malt character with caramel, liquorice, accompanied by piney and mildly fruity hops; present dark malty sweetness towards the moderately fruity and bitter hoppy finish with warming alcoholic notes. Not the best ASA, but nevertheless a pleasant Ale. 20.X.12

Bijl (408) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 18, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2017 Donkerbruin van kleur, crme kleurige schuimkraag die snel inzakt, ongefilterd, troebel en iets koolzuur. Aroma: Donker fruit, fruitige esters uit de gist, karamel, iets kruidig. Smaak: Zoete karamel, heel licht metalig......niet storend, donker fruit, rozijnen, iets kruidigheid van de rogge, vol moutig, broodkorst, kandijsuiker en een licht chocolade smaak. De hopbitter is ook redelijk met wat kruidige en grassige tonen. Overal tussendoor merk je soms wat fruitige citrus en grapefruit vanuit de Amerikaanse hops. Ook wat hinten van banaan uit de gist en iets alcohol warmte. Volle body, zacht en romig, afdronk is zoetig, toch ook iets droog, warm en kruidig.

Gerbeer (3419) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2017
330 ml bottle. Pours a dark mahogany with moderate foamy head. Aromas of dried caramel, rye, toasted malts, and metallic esters. Flavors of caramel, earthy and mineral-like Belgian yeast with a little banana, raisins, toasted malts and a bit of alcohol. Dry

Nice beer, but not that remarkable, it approximates beers like the great belgian trappists, such as Rochefort and Chimay, but falls a little short in aroma and bouquet. This is definitely no American Strong Ale as is claimed on the label.

Jesper86 (88) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2017 Pronounced smell with orange zest, apricots, liquorice. Refines creamy carbonation. Full bodied. Well balanced. Flavours of rye, chocolate, candied orange zest, apricots, liquorice, herbaceous notes, bay leaf, hint of some. Quite complex. Rich. Quite heavy though, the intensity might be too much for some. 10% also. Long finish.

Barwa brązowa, piana ładna. Zapach i smak bardzo wytrawny, bogaty, czasem aż nadto :). Dużo ciemnych owocw, ale też nuta wina. dobrze ukryty alkohol. Bardzo pijalne. Dobre piwo

vinivini (1714) - BELARUS - JAN 11, 2017
Murky chestnut brown, medium white well lacing head. Complex malty nose. Caramel, dark fruit, plenty of esters, spicy yeast, melon from US hops far away. Medium to full body. Caramel, brandy, dried fruit, warming booze. Light bitterness. It is truly a quad despite the New World hops.

Amazing and really unique. Smells of treacle and molasses. Pours flat and jet black with little carbonation. Tastes amazingly smooth and lovely. Dark and rich fruits. Lovely beer.

GvanGool (57) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2017
Generally I am quite keen on beers by Jopen. This ongelovige Thomas is not really my kind of beer. Its a complex beer. Its strong (10%), it has sweetness when drinking, but also citric tones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Carlisle (646) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2017
Bottle. Pours dark brown with tan head that dissipates quickly. Nose of plums, molasses, bread, and some anise. Rich, bread crust malt followed by raisins and plums with some subtle chocolate and anise notes. Warming alcohol in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ruikt fruitig en wat rozijnen. Smaak is fruitig, beetje metaalachtig en wat alcohol. Lekker
