olsvammel (7180) - rebro, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2017
Bottle from Systembolaget. Fairly light smell considering the ABV. I got some wood, cellar notes, chocolate and dark malts on the nose. Similar taste, felt both sweet and dry. Malty and fruity with dried fruit. Boozy but not nearly as expected from this strong abeer.

Lilja (3133) - Malm, SWEDEN - MAR 17, 2017
Flaska frn Beernavigator drucken med lfreningen. Tack Daniel! 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.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2017 From Belgium in a box; pours dark brown to black with a red shine and a giant off-white head; aroma is dried fruit, a hint of spice, some wine like notes, some alcohol; taste is intense fruity, great sweetness without being cloying at all, raisins, prune, grains, a hint of spice, something which reminds me of white wine, some tartness,has a warming gentle alcoholic finish; light texture with high carbonation

VDuquerroux (1599) - 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 (1037) - 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
