2 Bottles (0.33l: diky, Cuso!; 1.0l #657, diky, pane Stehliček! [Prvni Pivni Tramvaj v Praze]):Hazy, reddish-amber coloured, small off-white to yellowish head, dried fruits, port-wine and some herbs in the sweet nose, some oaky flavours, too; solid sweet flavour with a little tartness, full bodied and a bit sticky; sweet vinous finish with a slight alcohol-burn and a tinge of vanilla and tannic acid in the aftertaste. Very good pivo, unfortunately absolutely not my favourite... bartlebier (3982) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 14, 2013
33cl fliptop, thanks to Cuso for including this interesting specimen. Pours an unctuous deep red wine-acajou and shares more vinuous qualities with the Tokaji it has shared a barrel with. Nuts, figs and raisins reminiscent of an (aged) Belgian strong ale, mouthfeel and unctuous richness of a barley wine. not immediately apparent 10,5%, the "old"/stale feel still makes this more of a sipper. Well done, but not my cup of tea since too reminiscent of some of the said heavy Belgians I’d like to keep steering clear of. Gurthnar (5865) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle. Best before 31.1.2014. Aroma is rich, fruity. First impression figs, raisins. Plums, chocolate, light woodiness. Very tempting. Colour is hazy dark reddish-brown. Head is big and brown, rather short duration. Taste is complex with multiple layers, well intertwined. First moments are fruity, plum, strawberry. Then chocolate, with woodiness. The finish belongs to the spices and tokaj wine. Good celebration beer, real jewel from Kaltenecker. Nicely drinkable, ABV hidden quite well. Drinks nice lightly chilled.

Bottle 0,33l. Pours hazy dark amber/brown color, medium head. Aroma of juniper, spice, bit fruity. Tastes spicy, bittersweet, alcohol is not well hidden.
