Pale dark yellow pour with massive floaties, small head. Grainy german malt aroma, almost some vomit notes,mostly sweetly german breadiness,some strange spice maybe with the malt aroma the hops(if any) seem medicinal and subtle Im detecting a poorly stored bottle maybe,or infection i notice a light crud ring around the neck so maybe this was autolized too or infected. Really it just seemed stale yeast tasting.There is a pronounce malt light sweetness, fairly good hop taste but bittering is subtle too, with stale yeast off taste.Bottle says ko9h7 09: 02 whatever that means. The 9.5 is very well hidden though with mild spicy and a heavy malt with balanced sweetness.

Panzerfaust (837) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - DEC 22, 2016
330ml bottle from Beer Square. Pours a densely hazy golden color with a huge white head that diminishes slowly and leaves a film. Aroma is spicy and boozy with some hoppy touches. Smells like a good full-fledged Tripel to me. A bit of grains, honey, grass, herbs, clove, orange peel and candy sugar. Alcohol quite evident already. Taste is sweet, powerful, with flavors of sweet grains, almonds, spices and candy sugar. Nice and fun. Body is big, succulent. The alcoholic presence is a bit excessive to my taste. Nevertheless its a fine hoppy/spicy Tripel.

Hazy pale straw coloured with a thin white head of foam. Only moderate hoppy, more yeasty, with sweet malt flavour. Body is light to medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft.

Zarrach76 (124) - Grenoble, FRANCE - OCT 7, 2016
Belle couleur blonde lgrement trouble, mousse onctueuse et dense qui disparait assez rapidement. Au nez, des agrumes (citron vert, pamplemousse), des fruits verts (pomme surtout), du basilic, un peu de bois, un parfum de vanille et de caramel trs prononc, de noix, de sucre candi, de frangipane... Aussi, on sent trs peu lalcool malgr les 9.5%. Un trs beau nez, quilibr, lgant et gourmand la fois qui rappelle une bonne ptisserie. En bouche, lattaque est franche mais douce, avec les houblons qui se rvlent assez lgers, lastringence est faible, bonne carbonatation, lalcool est prsent bien sr mais il ne domine pas lensemble, on retrouve des lments dcels au nez, savoir le sucre candi, la frangipane, le caramel, le miel ainsi quun peu de levure, trs discrte... Aprs plusieurs gorges les notes sucres sestompent et lamertume se dgage pour dominer le palet au final avec des notes daromates et dpices, tandis que le nez change progressivement et laisse exploser des notes de ptisserie chaude. Bon quilibre entre lamertume, lalcool et le sucre. Une trs bonne bire forte, lgante, dsaltrante et gourmande sans tre trop complexe. A boire bien frache ! Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.
