DrnkMcDermott (3075) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2009 Bottled. Certainly a big, big taste at work here. Starts with lots of foam, but that subsides quickly. The brown hazy body shows off a cascade of golden bubbles when I pour more into the Belgian glass. Nice brown sugar smell. Even my non-drinking wife wanted to taste it, and declared it delicious and sweet. Yep, good candi sugar sweetness. Extra alcohol smoothness gives it the texture of a sweet dinner wine. Or maybe I can compare it to a barley wine, just missing the hop bouquet.

Jabic (537) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - MAY 26, 2017
Ar: Plums, figs, and slight smoky earthiness; candied orange and moderately toasted malts; herbal, slightly sweet hops. Ap: Amber and hazy; medium slightly off-white head with moderate-low retention, leaving a ring of mostly fine bubbles, a few suds, and a thin haze of foam. T: Toasted malt, peach, and banana, with a moderate-low sweetness; warm, very clean alcohol; prominent banana and peach skins mid-palate, with a low bitterness and a slightly herbal hop character; fruity tannins, relatively smooth, linger on the finish with underripe peach and orange peel. P: Medium-full body with very high, refined carbonation; finish is medium-dry. O: Very good quad; lots of fruit, spice, and clean alcohol flavor; quite drinkable even though it has a ton of flavor and substance; strong and bold while never becoming cloying or overbearing.

Aromas are complex with a lot of variety, though all of the aromas are subdued - bread, caramel, dried fruit, spices (hard to pin down but the official description of banana, vanilla and almond seems like a reasonable attempt). Color is a slightly cloudy amber with a very large off-white head. Taste is somewhat sweet with a quite mild bitterness. Body is medium; texture is oily/creamy; finish is long, fruity, malty and spicy. Overall an excellent beer - subtle but complex and interesting.

Idiosynkrasie (7317) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2017
330ml bottle. Clear, copper-ish, dark amber to brown colour with average, thick, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Sweet-ish, malty and estery fruity aroma, notes of cherry, banana, apricot, marzipan, baked apple, vanilla. Taste is sweet malty, fruity, notes of banana, cherry, apricot, some marzipan, vanilla, baked red apple, dry hoppy counterweight with hints of apple parings; alcohol is hidden under the fruitiness but not inhibited to unfold efficacy. Smooth, soft, silky and slightly sticky palate, soft and fine carbonation.

Gingham (14) - Hawera, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 21, 2017
Great amber colour with a light head. Aromas are ripe fruit, maybe pineapple, and inviting. Sweet tangy, warm malty flavours. A little bitter on the edges of my tongue. Great balance. It's a strong brew at 10%, but easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

toscanoigor (241) - Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL - MAY 18, 2017
Do tap: cerveja marrom avermelhada, levemente turva, com espuma de boa formao e mdia durao. Aroma de po, biscoito, um leve caramelo, banana ameixa, passas. Sabor doce, com leve frutado de passas e banana, leve acidez, muito lcool. O sabor, como um todo, bem suave. Possui corpo mdio, pouca carbonatao. Retrogosto bem maltado, voltando ao po e gros e calor de lcool. bem forte, o lcool as vezes sobressai, mas uma delcia, sempre vale a pena.

Butelka 330 ml, cena 13 zł Aromat: Estry owocowe, banan, cytrusy, delikana wanilia, także guma balonowa Wygląd: Wysoka, biała piana. Dość drobna. Zostawia znaczne ślady na szkle. Barwa ciemno pomarańczowa, brązowa Smak: Owocowe, przede wszystkim o smaku pomarańczy, cytrusw, ale też zarwno banany jak i śliwki. Lekka wanilia, karmel. Trochę upodabnia się do szampana. Delikatnie kwaskowe. Drobny posmak alkoholowy. Odpowiednie wysycenie i tekstura. Brak dominujących nut. Tak jak w przypadku mniej alkoholowych wersji złożony zapach i smak bez nut dominujących. Bardzo fajne piwo, ale cena jednak dość wysoka.
