Blmarques (10) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JAN 15, 2017
Light malty nose. Pours very dark brown, little carbonation. Well rounded mouth but the alchool shows up soon in mouth. Some mild vanilla, tiny little cinammon, not much else...

Sweet aroma of sugar, dates, chocolate, raisin, brown/reddish with a thin white head very persistant, full body, medium carbonation, i appreciate the intense sweet notes, again dark fruits, good and pleasant warming final...in this hostile land there is a very good strong ale.

dnicolaescu (2269) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JAN 11, 2017
BOTTLE 33 CL. Clear dark ruby-brown, big beige head. Strong fruity and vinous aroma, just a touch of dark sugars. The taste is nice blend of dried dates, port wine, almonds and spicy warming alcohol. Full-bodied yet easy to drink. Excellent.

deyholla (10686) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 28, 2016
Sampled from the tap at Hopcat A2. Pours a deep amber with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has sweet fruit, caramel and grains with biscuit supporting. Flavor has light fruits and biscuit with an earthy grains backing.

Blind. Ruikt weer off, zoals ik wel vaker heb. Ziet er wel aardig uit, teveel carbo. Sterk, zoet, kruidig.

bartlebier (3632) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 2, 2016
Full draught at source, late Nov 2016, served too cold at La Casse-Croute to serve as dessert to my boulets liégoises. - Cinnamon and plum compote aromatics spiced with aniseed make up the surface lure of this typically smooth and straightforwardly composed Val Dieu abbey beer. The roasted malts add enough bready depth and the seasonal greetings of roasted almonds to provide the structure and some depth lacking in the the yeast profile. Some coriander broth underneath, orange bitters. Had this before on tap at Moeder Lambiek and it has to be said this remains a creamy-smooth palate pleaser thanks to/despite its obvious instant consumability. - Will revisit my 75cl bottle with some age on it.

Moravius (1191) - Beijing, CHINA - NOV 27, 2016
Flasche (75 cl, MHD: 09/13, mehrere Jahre im eigenen Keller gelagert). - Tiefes Kastanienbraun, leicht trüb. - In der Nase milde Gewürze über dunklem Malz und Pflaumenmus, zarte oxidierte Noten. - Im Antrunk üppiges dunkles Malz mit Rohrzucker und obergärige dunkle Frucht mit schwerem Gewürzeinschlag (Pflaume in Madeira). Mild rezent, vollmundig aber nicht schwer. Im Abgang milde Weihnachtsgewürze auf Pflaume aber kaum Hopfenherbe. - Angenehmes süß-pflaumiges Bier, das etwas mehr Tiefgang haben könnte.
