gilvanblight (825) - Windsor, Ontario, - JAN 25, 2013
Dark brownish red pour, very hazy. It’s almost an orange colour when help up to a light. Very small bubbles in the head. Nice lacing. Nose reminds me of something fruity. Plumb I think it is. Its kind of weak but really appealing once you catch it. Very full bodied. A touch thick. A bit of a quick attack to the mouth at first that fades quick. A surge of spice and carbonation. It’s like a quick bite or nip. Then that mellows out very slowly and pleasantly. It ends very dry and clean. A very enjoyable palate. What’ I can’t really tell you though is the flavours that are in there. It’s all very subtle. Cranberry at first? A burst of sweet tart, like the candy with a bit of bite, cinnamon? Then it just mellows out so nice. It’s not so much the taste changes but just mellows out. Really dig this. Wish I had bought more than 2.

SylvainCFC (272) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2017
Robe brune très foncée, reflets roux. Mousse bien calibrée, beige, aérée, bonne tenue. Nez très doux, vanille, fruits mûrs, alcool. Bouche classique pour une brune forte, structurée autour d’une belle douceur maltée, avec des notes fruitées (prunes, fruits mûrs, fruits secs, banane léger), vanille, sucre candi. Texture moyenne (assez légère pour le style), carbonatation moyenne. Brune forte (quad) classiquement douce et fruitée. Très chaude. ABV très haut, mais bien intégré gustativement.

KW92 (1621) - Warszawa (Warsaw), POLAND - JUL 26, 2017

Butelka z data : 15 11 2018 (#1414)
AROMAT : Srednio intensywny. Typowy drozdzowo-przyprawowy zapach (biala porzeczka, gruszka w zalewie, suszone morele).
SMAK : Pólwytrawne. Slodowe. Wysokie nasycenie. Dobrze wkomponowany alkohol, to zdecydowanie na plus. Odczucie w ustach: wodniste. Goryczka srednia, sciagajaca.
WYGLAD : Barwa miedziana, zamglone. Piana obfita, trwala, oblepiajaca szklo.
OGÓLNIE : Ciekawy aromat. W smaku ma niewiele do zaoferowania. Bardzo efektownie prezentuje sie w kieliszku - efektowna czapa piany.

kaserov (799) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 20, 2017
Color marrón oscuro, rojizo si le da la luz, opaco, con capa de espuma marrón de tres dedos de grosor (muy buena retención). Carbonatación media. Textura oleosa y un tanto efervescente. Aroma a caramelo, metal, higos, pasas, ciruelas, azúcar. Sabor con mucho caramelo, toques metálicos en los primeros tragos, higos, pasas, ciruelas, especia. De entrada dulce, va tornándose amarga a mitad de trago. Final de amargor suave y especiado, se cuela un mínimo de alcohol. Seca. Postgusto a dark fruits y azúcar. No está mal pero no me aporta nada especial.
