rafael52 (1450) - Łódź, POLAND - OCT 16, 2016
Kolor: bursztynowy, herbaciany, klarowny. Piana: prawie nie występuje, po nalaniu szczątkowa warstwa, po zamieszaniu powstaje cienka warstwa. Zapach: intensywny i bogaty, nuty ciemnych owoców, winne, bardzo kojarzy się aromatami bimbru, śliwowicy, alkohol wyczuwalny, ale w nienachalny sposób, przyjemny. Smak: bardzo pełne, słodkie, również nuty ciemnych owoców, miodu, lekkie nuty słodowe, karmelowe, opiekane, delikatna goryczka alkoholowa, alkohol wyczuwalny dopiero przez rozgrzewanie w żołądku. Wysycenie: bardzo niskie.

Linkiewitz (102) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 30, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2016 Aromat: Słodki, likierowy, wyraźnie karmelowy z delikatną nutą alkoholu. Skojarzenia z miodem pitnym, rodzynkami i suszonymi owocami. Wygląd: Ciemno bursztynowe, z delikatną obręczą piany. Smak: Zasadniczo aromat przygotował nas na to jaki będzie smak - wysoka słodycz, karmel, miód, rodzynki, suszone owoce. Przez całą degustację tego piwa miałem nieodparte wrażenie, że mam do czynienia nie z piwem, lecz z tokajem lub miodem pitnym. Goryczka w formie lekko orzechowej (utlenienie). Dość interesujące piwo, w przystępnej cenie.

mjs (7259) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2016
(Bottle, 0.2 l - BB 18.09.2015, at tiong’s tasting, thanks Marduk, 20160109) The beer poured amber and clear. No head. Aroma had vineousness, malts and raisin. Palate was medium bodied and sticky with hardly any carbonation. Flavours were a lot sweetness, some raisins, malts and bitterness. Afertaste was sticky sweet and mildly bitter. Otherwise good brew but excessively sweet.,

200ml bottle - thanks Marduk and the posse at tiongs! (7:1:7:3:13+=3.1+)
Nice rich amber, but almost no head. However I cannot give it the 3 it deserves because of the fucking stupid sealing atop the cork which shattered into a million flakey shards and made a mess of the table and my trousers and seat, and Anna’s hair, and probably half of tiong’s flat. Nice raisiny sweet barleywine aroma. Super sweet body, a bit slick. Toffee sweetness and raisiny caramel in the taste. Finish sweet and toffee-ey. Does tickly my sweet tooth, but it really is too sweet to be hugely enjoyable (for comparison though, it’s less sweet in every way than a PX sherry). Covers 12.3% adequately.

200 ml bottle. BB 18/9/2015. Courtesy of Marduk. Clear amber color with a small off-white head. Cork, red wine, sweetness and malt in the aroma. The flavor is super sweet syrupy malty. Insanely sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark orange with a small head. Aroma of caramely malts, toffee, alcohol and hints of berries. Taste is sweet, malty and heavy with some boozy syrupy notes, hints of alcohol, toffee and berries. Finish is sweet, heavy and boozy with some caramel, toffee and syrup. Quite sweet and boozy.

bartlebier (3982) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 25, 2015
20cl bottle, minimalni trvanlivosti 03/2015, courtesy of motelpogo and mowbeer the Australo-Cali-Bohemian beerduo, dekuje. Shared at Outre-Rhin tasting, making for a very international trade-to-palate route indeed. - - Umami-sweet nose of oil-sautéd brown mushrooms and white porto, muscat grape. Spiced Martini Bianco and vermouth in taste, wild honey. Manages to remain dryish like an older dessert wine. Quite unique and full of great yeast textures and nuances.
