Samuel214 (913) - SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2017
Flaska frn Beergium. Mrk, murken rdbrun med lite smutsbeiget skum. Djup vins doft, som att sticka nsan i ett glas med rdvin. Briga toner, kola, torkad frukt, russin, kandisocker, tydliga ekfatstoner, en snll syrlighet och en subtil kaffeton ngonstans i bakgrunden. Mellanstor kropp med strva fatinslag. Smaken r bde komplex, djup och rttfram. Mngder av rdvin, brig stma som bryter av mot strva och torr syrlighet. Ruskigt vlbalanserat och vlkomponerat. Inlagda, syrliga krsbr, kola och en ltt brnd avslutning. Fantastiskt djup och fyllig. S nra ett glas rdvin en l kan komma. Imponerande!

Mesjasz (1440) - Lodz, POLAND - FEB 26, 2017
Aromat jest cudowny, bardzo winny ale też przebija się karmel, suszone wiśnie, dębina. Smak lekko kwaśny, lekko słodki, spora taniczność ale na akceptowalnym poziomie. W smaku ogrom wiśni, takich w likierze, karmelu i czekoladzie. Bardzo dużo drewna, lekka paloność. Posmak bardzo winny, w typie cięższych win czerwonych, lekko cierpki, długi i przyjemny. Ciało dosyć pełne, faktura nawet gładka, wysycenie niskie. Oglnie jest to świetne piwo, taki siper dobry do wieczora i filmu/serialu. Jest fajnie złożone, a ten posmak zostaje na tyle długo i jest tak przyjemny, że połowę małej butelki można pić godzinę. No i w ogle szaleństwo browaru De Struise, zrobić piwo w 2009 i trzymać w beczce przez 7 lat :D
