VDuquerroux (1455) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - FEB 11, 2017
Bottle, 75cL. @Naintre, shared with my dad. A very dark brown beer, nearly black with a big beige foamy head ; good retention. Beautiful label and bottle. Red berries, roast, prune note, biscuit, light caramel. Medium round sweet, warming atmosphere, light dry bitter. Full body, light silky, average carbonation, fruity warming sweet finish. Overall, delicious beer ! Gourmet beer.

Samuel214 (851) - SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2017
Flaska frn 2015(?). Bst fre 2016-11-01. Provning med Nerikes lsllskap. Rubinrd/mahogny frgad med brunbeiget skum med stora bubblor som snabbt frsvinner helt. St, fruktig, fyllig och ntig doft som direkt fr tankarna till en stor, potent barley wine. Mrka, sta och rostade toner av lnnsirap och med en ltt kryddighet. Kroppen r medelstor t det lite strre hllet, lite torr. ven smakmssigt r det mycket av en stor, st barley wine med kola, torkad frukt, lnnsirap, ntiga inslag. Blir en annorlunda men intressant mix; en "bubblig" och lite mer elegant belgisk strong ale kombinerat med stor, tung barley wine. Kroppen r inte i nrheten av en barley wine p det sttet, men smakerna r dr. Om inte annat s intressant! Udda med s kort bst fre-datum.

tlthatatlan, feketbe hajl teste csak a fny fel fordtva csillantja meg gesztenyebarna rnyalatait, mikzben habja risira nő, valsggal tlnvi a poharat, előbb-utbb azonban cappuccino-krmesre csillapodik. Aromi jl ismert hangulatok kovcsoli; aszalvnyos, medvecukros finomsgok, csonthjas termsek prklt jegyeit idzőek. Kortyai kezdetben a pezsgős, szrazabb vonal kpviselőjeknt mutatjk be, a "brut" jelleg dominancija tagadhatatlannak tűnik, nmi levegőztets utn trulkozik ki azonban igazn, amikor az lnk sznsavtartalom csitulsa teret enged tovbbi lmnyeknek is, mlyebb karakter formldik, jabb benyomsok rnek minket. Vitathatatlanul az elegancia nyelvn szlal meg, arisztokratikus vonsai nem maradnak szrevtlenek, egy igen kifinomult tlalsban kerlnek ugyanis elnk az aromi ltal felvzolt tartalom előkelő elemei. Egyszerre fanyar s szraz, krmes s desszertszerű kortyok, retlen s tlrett, aszalt fekete gymlcsk, zldalma, mazsola, karamell s fekete finomsgok zei, csokold zamata, majd egy nemesi finomsg, szraz pezsgős bcsz, mely szmomra egyben az jv srs kszntője is, az v első főzetnek vgszava.

75cl fles via Het Bierhuis, Breda Alcoholpercentage van 12% Uitgeschonken in Duvel glas Uiterlijk: donkerbruine kleur met mooie schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: nootachtig, klein zuurtje maar minder dan gedacht voor een brut, licht chocolade, koffie, alcohol Conclusie: erg speciaal al met het ontkurken, mooie smaak, meer bier dan champagne, nice

Vignale (3560) - Malm, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2016
Flaska frn Beernavigator drucken med lfreningen. Stor och st fruktig doft. Som det ljusa varianterna stor och elegant men hr mrkbark stare och rundare med kryddig och fruktig smakbild med gula russin, anis, torkad frukt, kryddigt vin, mandel. Champagnemetoden ger inte utdelning p samma stt i den hr maltigare och stare versionen utan det blir lite spretigt. Hade vntat mig mer chokladsmak. Gott.

__Rb81 (758) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2016
Bottle at home (01/04/2013). Pours reddish brown with a beige fizzy head. Aroma of chocolate, dark fruits, raisin, malts, alcohol. Taste is over moderate sweet, moderate bitter, quite some alcohol, dark fruits, chocolate, raisins, chocolate and lots of warming alcohol in the aftertaste. Nice. Alcohol is a bit too stingy, otherwise it would have been even better.
