Pdubyah (659) - Auckland, - MAR 1, 2013
I wanted this to be so much more than it is, the carbonation surprises and hide the front taste of the malt, and does not hide the alcohol bitters. But this is a strong beer that is drinkable and will get you into trouble, there is no complex thinking or stretching for taste descriptions, they are pretty low key and just present. In a class of it’s peers this would be a "achieved" and not a Merit or Excellence.

Belle robe ambrée, mousse abondante et crémeuse. Nez plus élégant sur des notes de noisette, de café au lait, de chocolat, de fourrure. Par contre bouche tout aussi décevante, avec un manque d’ampleur et de complexité. De nouveau pas mon style

RaduPopovici (4) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - DEC 7, 2016 does not count
330 ml bottle, Bucharest, at Bistro GUXT. Nice hazy dark amber color, off-white head, pretty good retention, some lacing. Caramel and dark fruit aroma, with some acid notes, dark bread, some chocolate, rum and spices and also some roastiness. The taste is round, dark fruits and caramel, molasse, spices and a fine bitterness balancing the malty sweetness. Dryer aftertaste, with hints of fruits, fermented raisins, alcohol. Excellent beer, very good as a digestif or paired with chocolate & fruits desserts

Blueshawk (451) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - NOV 1, 2016
- dunkelbraun mit einem leichten Rotstich - sehr gute, anhaltende Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Datteln,Feigen, Rosinen, überreifen Äpfeln und Birnen, Marmalade, Sherry, Toffee und Wacholder - aber auch ein etwas zu durchdringender Alkohol-Touch steigt einem in die Nase - die Carbonisierung ist mir eine Spur zu brausig - genau diese relativ starke Kohlensäurebeigabe verdirbt mir von Anfang an etwas den Spaß an diesem Bier - der Antrunk ist geprägt von einem überraschend schlanken Körper - die einzelnen Geschmacksnoten stehen gut erkennbar nebeneinander - aber wie beim Aroma scheint mir hier der Alkohol auch zu sehr durch - gegen Ende schwingt sich die Bitternis dann etwas in den Vordergrund und das Ganze dann endgültig unangenehm Fazit: Der Alkohol steht einfach zu sehr unangenehm im Vordergrund

Zarrach76 (73) - Grenoble, FRANCE - OCT 16, 2016
Très belle brune cuivrée légèrement trouble avec une mousse beige à bulles larges qui persistent sur quelques millimètres. Nez très porté sur le sucre et le fruit : cassonade, caramel, miel, chocolat au lait, spéculoos, sirop d’érable, raisin, pruneau, pomme, datte, poire, mangue... Mais derrière se cachent les houblons, perceptibles avec une agréable pointe citronnée et l’impression de sentir un bon vin pétillant (Champagne, Clairette, Mousseux...). Belle complexité. En bouche, la carbonatation est faible et les houblons attaquent les premiers avec une bonne astringence. On retrouve ce petit goût de mousseux (raisins fermentés donc) agréable, de cidre (pomme et poire) et de céréales bien torréfiées. Le sucre est assez discret. L’alcool est relativement présent. Le final est clairement sur l’amertume et les pointes d’agrumes. Très bonne bière qui pourrait être plus gourmande et épicée. Bouteille 33cl,V&B Grenoble.

Bierdimpfe (550) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2016
Thick cloudy copper color, with a red hue, very active, and chunks of floating yeast. Frothy light brown 3 finger head, lasting around 10-15 minutes, with thick legs. Flavors of dark berries, plums, cherries, nuts, cheese, wild yeast, dark grains, wood, herbal spices, faint coffee and chocolate. Highly sugary, with soft sharpness, and bitter herbs. Slick light body with crispy carbonation. Strong but pleasant finish, vinous and dry, lingering sour fruits with a barrel aged feel. Good as an appetizer. Bad freshness, deadly yeast. Decent flavors and a balanced feel. Overall good quality craft. Too much yeast, disgusting huge chunks, maybe a bad bottle?
