Pours dark brown with no head. The smell is nothing special and is strongly yeasty. Taste is very full at first bit then a sour aftertaste kicks in, that ruins the beer for a second there. The good thing is the aftertaste quickly diminishes and you can enjoy the rest of the beer. Cheers

330ml Flasche. Dunkelbeaunes glänzendes Bier, wenig Schaum. Trockenobst Alkoholduft. Antrunk auch alkoholisch. Malz und Trockenftüchte. Etwas Bitternoten. Geht so.

Rating #1216, flaske fra Boxbeers. Flot, meget mørk, rødbrun øl, med lille råhvidt skum. Aroma med masser af ristet malt, brød og lidt lakrids. Aroma minder om en kraftig dunkel. Smagen har også masser af brød, karamel og let lakrids, samt en masse trænoter. Alkoholen skinner lidt for tydeligt igennem, hen mod en kraftig bitter afslutning, men den holder trods alt også 8,5%. Blød og kalkagtig mundfølelse og relativt tyk med afdæmpet kulsyre. En ok øl, men jeg havde nok forventet lidt mere.

12oz bottle. Brown with small white head. Syrupy nose with alcohol. Lots of raisin. Sweet. Thick and sticky. Tastes almost like a Belgium quad. Not what i expected. Good.

klukas (288) - Rijeka, CROATIA - JUN 10, 2017
Enjoyed: Poured from a bottle into English pint glass. Appearance: Brown colour, very small rising bubbles, medium head. Aroma: Chocolate liqueur, alcohol, caramel. Palate: Medium body; light carbonation. Taste: Chocolate, dark fruits, roasted malt; bitter and alcoholic aftertaste. Overall impression: Good and tasty, but too much alcohol notes.

LoZioSpino (36) - Roma, ITALY - JUN 5, 2017
Dal colore rosso cupo, sviluppa un aroma di frutta matura e dolce, con particolare riferimento a datteri e fichi secchi. I profumi sono di carruba e liquirizia. al gusto prevalgono i forti sapori tostati di caffè e caramello. il finale ricorda il Porto.

kalkone (29) - BELGIUM - JUN 4, 2017
Une bière forte. Avec des arômes prononcé de cuits, de céréale, de caramel et de terre.

gabrieldraco (6) - Panama, PANAMA - MAY 8, 2017 does not count
Una cerveza oscura, fuerte, seca, se siente amarga, y tostado, lo amargo es como a chocolate ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
