flylikeabanana (179) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 24, 2013
Bottle pours a hazy amber brown with a very thick light brown head. Aromas of caramel, dark fruit, and rich malt. Tastes great for 12%. Figs, toffee, a bit of barley-wine sweetness, nicely balanced yeast.

ciocanelu (2955) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - NOV 17, 2017
Dark brown color with tan head. Aroma is quite sugary with sweet fruity notes like dark berries. Taste has brown sugar, dark dried fruits, some yeasty flavors, earthy and slightly roasty bitterness on the finish. Body is on the light side, medium plus carbonation. Overall it's a quite good quad with a complex taste.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2017 Chestnut in color, with a beige head. Wonderfull Aroma dominated by dark cherries and plums. Taste follows the same line with well balanced sweetness. Sweet but not too sweet. Very nice!

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2017 (bien brune, alcoolisée, trop mousseuse en bouche, trop arrondie, pas assez structurée)

IOzh (199) - Kyiv, UKRAINE - SEP 15, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours dark brown with medium beige head. Aroma of malts, dark fruits, raisins, caramel. Full body with high carbonation. Taste is nicely balanced medium sweet with alcohol warmth. Nice.

Blastomorpha (126) - - SEP 10, 2017
Immediatly after opening the bottle there's a fragrance of banana. Unusual for this style, but interesting. Unfortunatly ater the pouring the aroma is not existing almost. Taste is sweet and winery, similar to a Gulden Draak but way less rich and more alcoholic. A bit disappointing.

3.8
SinH4 (6265) - Garching b. M�nchen, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2017
Bottle. Dark brown color with beige head that goes down quickly. Aroma is chocolate, prunes, floral, red grapes. Taste is prunes, chocolate, vineous, even a bit tart, some port wine and hazelnuts. High carbonation. Stays surprisingly light in its body, but the booze is definitely detectable. A sipper, definitely a good beer, but not as great as expected after the 10 was a really pleasant surprise, but maybe that’s because it’s still summer outside.

3.9
alteregoo (1750) - Kalisz, POLAND - AUG 24, 2017
Obfita, nieco mydlana, nietrwała piana. Barwa miedziana, klarowna. Aromat mało intensywny, generalnie odrobina suszu owocowego, kandyzowanych bakalii, karmelu i starego chmielu. W smaku na szczęście dużo lepiej - sporo rodzynkowej słodyczy, fig, ciemnego cukru, wosku pszczelego. Na finiszu jakieś przyprawy, nieduża, ziołowa goryczka. Średnie, drobne wysycenie, gładkie, fajnie utlenione, z pięknie ułożonym, lekko rozgrzewającym alkoholem.
Po sporym zawodzie w zapachu miłe zaskoczenie w ustach - poza klasycznym, quadruplowo dubblowym profilu smakowym, ogromne wrażenie robi schowanie niemalże 12% ABV i fajny aftertejs porto, sherry...

Wow, what a rich, dark bomb of flavours! Intens caramel, plumbs and a bit of chocolat. Its almost like wine.
