kapusil (1592) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 3, 2017
0.33l bottle. Very dark orangish brown body with a thin off whize head. Aroma of caramel, dark sugar syrup, raisins and figs. Taste of caramel, orange zest, dark sugar, raisins, figs and floral hops. Sweet, dark fruity and complex. Great beer.

Cristobal37 (1325) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 1, 2017
Bottle from the abbey. Deep dark brown, thin retaining head. Sugary sweet deep red wine aroma. Taste is more port wine, plum, caramel, bready. Sticky finish with medicinal herbs and fortified wine. Maybe even some banana in there. Not weizen banana, more but akin to Aventinus eisbock for example. Drunk with some chocolate cake, but maybe a cigar would have been better.

kaserov (1173) - Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 23, 2017
Típica belga de casi 11 grados, oscura, impenetrable, con mucha espuma marrón (de textura jabonosa) y carbonatación muy activa. En nariz, alcohol, levadura, dark fruits, especias (menos dulce de lo habitual). En boca lo mismo, con mucho cuerpo y presencia del alcohol al final del trago, así como un leve amargor, pero sin llegar a molestar. El problema es que es un poco facilona y "lo de siempre". Se bebe y se disfruta pero tampoco aporta nada especial.

slowrunner77 (13418) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 18, 2017
Brown with big pillowy off white head. Aroma a touch musty...lots of yeast and plum, slight herbal bready character that’s there in the flavor as well with a hint of bitterness.

3.5
McWorta (1633) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 24, 2017
Hazy, light brown with a frothy off white lasting head. Aromas of herbs, sugared oats, fruity esters, some barnyard, caramel. Light tangy, slick and full bodied. Harmonic sweet-bitter overall and hiding its abv pretty well. Lasting light herbal finish. Rather enjoyable.

simontomlinson (730) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2017
Frothy beige head soon left a bubbly cover on a near black still body. Huge aroma of malt, demerara, port, plum & stewed fruits. Light & airy on the palate. Tingly down the throat. Sticky on the lips. Sweet malt tastes with plum, berries, brown sugar, banana, Belgian yeast & very long fruity finish.

Toffee liquorice caramel notes. Typical brownish quad colour. Nice spicy aftertaste, with warming sensation.

3.5
Iznogud (5006) - CROATIA - FEB 25, 2017
Bottle, 330 ml from Beergium, shared with JFK1000, Max and Domagoj. pours brown with average off-white head, spare lacing. Malty, caramel, noticeable alcohol, plums, raisins, dried fruit, spicy. Moderate to heavy sweetness. Medium bodied.

4.6
Beachmaster (580) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 15, 2017
On draught. Pours a hazy amber with a small white head that fades quickly. Nose is a complex mixture of earthy spice and vinous notes. Taste is very complex, with a supremely balanced flavor of subtle spice, a touch of funk, and a vinous backbone. Improves dramatically as it warms to the correct temperature. Has a dry, champagne-like finish with a very long finish. Excellent.
