SimplySike (1537) - The Hague, - APR 14, 2013
75cl. Bottle. Pours clear orange with white head. Aroma citrus, orange, grapefruit, caramel, alcohol. Taste Bitter, warming alcohol, sweets, bittersweet finish. Mouthfeel oily, creamy. Great beer, complex taste, did taste some rice but that could be in my head.

TaktikMTL (7999) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2017
Bouteille de 750 ml obtenue via Importations Privées Bièropholie (Montréal, QC) au coût de 20,75$. Arôme: Odeur de caramel avec une pointe d'agrumes. Apparence: La couleur est orangée opaque avec une très faible densité de bulle. Présence d'un mince col mousseux et d'une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de caramel avec une pointe de raisins et d'agrumes. Durée moyenne de l'arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de caramel en arrière goût. (Rating #7881)

Piwo metne w kolorze jasny bursztyn nalewa sie z obfita iloscia sredniopecherzykowej piany zostawiajace ladny lacing na szkle. Aromat slodkich owocow i karmelu. W smaku slodko ale nie przesadnie zamulajaco, syrop klonowy, kandyzowane owoce i slody. Jest tez nutka cytrusow i chmielu. Pomimo iz duza butla to nie bylo problemow z jej wypiciem.

MartinT (10102) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2017
My Bottom Line:

Super resinous hoppiness clashes with oxidized caramel and alcohol heat in this brash strong ale.



Further Personal Perceptions:

-A slice of foam tops the misty amber.

-Muted pineapple juice alleviates the roughness.

-Ingredients might jive in a few years.

-Getting tired of these super intense New World strong ales with no refinement or drinkability. They tend to be sold way too early, before all components become a whole.



Bottle.

martjoobolut (5225) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 18, 2017
Bottle (from SIP). Pours amber with whiteish head. Aroma is sweet, rice, malt, sake like fruitiness.Flavor is sweet and bitter, rice, again sake like fruits, malt, citrus, caramel. Finish is sweet, dry bitter and boozy. Overall: feels like mix of beer and shitty-boozy sake, can’t say I’m enjoying it too much, but it is drinkable.

ochniczek (326) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 4, 2017

3.8
eduardovl (1478) - SWITZERLAND - APR 3, 2017
750ml served in a snifter glass. Pours a cloudy orange​ color, forming a small and low persistent creamy white head that leaves some spotty and lingering​ lacings in the glass. Nose is sweet and fruity. Strong notes of peaches, raisins​ and caramel. Notes of grapefruit and orange zest. Becomes quickly bitter. Good bittersweet balance. Heavy body. Low carbonation. Bittersweet aftertaste. A mix of peaches with piny hops. A bit booze. Good drinkability. Not my favorite style but a good barleywine.
