Kosmokrator (849) - - AUG 5, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2015 Bel colore arancio carico con un velo di soffice schiuma bianca. Aroma dolce con sentori di caramello, noci e zucchero filato; gusto dolce e avvolgente dominato da note di toffee e frutta secca, finale asciutto e piacevolmente luppolato. Buon corpo e piacevole effervescenza, una strong ale piuttosto particolare che se spillata bene rende al meglio.

Tsja, beroemd biertje, maar toch de eerste maal dat ik deze drink (denk ik nu). Mooie amber kleur, goed beige schuim en een heerlijke smaak, aardig zoetje er in. Kan ik vaker bestellen.

Winter drinking beer for me. Relates to old ales. Warm winter hug in a glass, again goes down well. Toffee, Molasses & caramel notes. Perfect for Christmas.

As a Belgian, tasting all the world best beers over here...after some years... This one is a real good blond beer, although high in alcohol, you never taste the alcohol! Very nice in the mouth, drinks easily, but not too easily, you feel body and and for me it's like liquid honey in the mouth... not meaning sweet, but just hints of honey...or something in that direction... Really very good beer! There is a crazy glass for it, google it!

NosirIwont (2592) - Husum, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2017
Bottle. 8.4%. Best before 26.06.19. Pours a clear, deep golden, with a creamy, light tan head. Good lacing. Fruity, and a bit floral aroma with a yeast note. A bit heavy. Hops, light berries, apple, melon, alcohol and a hint of blue cheese as it warms. Flavour is sweetish, with fruit, hops, yeast, apple, malt. Metallic hint as it warms. Dryish, fruity finish with a mild alcohol note/burn and a lingering hint of bitter liquorice, followed by a grassy note. Soft palate. Overall good, somewhat complex, though a wee bit cloying in the long run. 15.11.17.

Fazla kokusu yok, alkol oranı yüksek olmasına karşın buğday tadından fazlası alınamıyor. Az asidik.
