jamestulloch (3582) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 6, 2016
Keg at The Hanging Bat. Hazy amber/brown body with a beige head that holds well. Good lacing. Aroma of caramel, bubblegum, spices and banana bread. Flavour of caramel, figs, nuts, brown bread and white pepper. Medium body with a frothy mouthfeel. Soft fizz. This reminded me of Westmalle Dubbel. Im surprised this hasnt scored higher than it has - its a lovely beer with lots going on.

Alebarasi (42) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - OCT 19, 2016
Hazy dark red-brown color with a medium fluffy beige head. Full body, medium carbonisation, almost no lacing. Smell of malts, wheat, bruised banana, pear, esters, nutmeg, toffee, fruity bubblegum and cloves. Wheaty and spicy taste with hints of caramel, molasses, (maybe) plums and dry/dark fruits. Dry beginning and sweet finish, but calm aftertaste. Notable sweetness on the palate and alcoholic warmth. Resembles a Belgian-style tripel. Enjoyable and interesting beer.

gigaphone (8) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 10, 2016 does not count
The carbonation was close to none. Maybe it was a bad bottle, but I will never know now, because I am not risking buying another one. I am a big fan of Thornbridge, but I dont understand this one. I didnt finish it.

BenOver (285) - SLOVENIA - SEP 21, 2016
Pours very dark amber, with minimum and quickly dissipating slightly off white top. Aroma is strong alcoholic, some banana hints in the background. Taste is full bodied, evolving through slight carbonation to a slightly roasty, yet also sour finish. A nice doppelbock!
