hangunder (305) - Ontario, - JAN 10, 2013
Caramel, dried fruit, clove, earthy. Appearance is a dark brown, big head but not too long lasting. Taste is sweet dried fruit but light body and relatively thing consistency make this refreshing for it’s style/ABV. ABV well masked. Medium carbonation.

SylvainCFC (301) - 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.

3.4
stchloe (1104) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 6, 2017
Rich and heavy with strong earth and dark malt notes, very large body and abv helps add some countering notes

KW92 (1626) - 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.

3.5
hershiser2 (3533) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUL 26, 2017
Draft taproom. Pours reddish Amber with a lacing beige head. Aroma of sweet caramels, butterscotch, dark fruit. Flavor is boozy dark fruit including cherry and fig, caramel. Tasty.

3.3
kaserov (880) - 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.
