UPDATED: FEB 3, 2017 Bottle at beerbistro. Many thanks to Lisa and Craig for giving me an excuse to try this! Dark reddish brown with finely bubbled tan head. Sweetish raisin, molasses, and caramel aromas, with some faint hints of oakiness and leather. Slick mouthfeel. Lighter palate than I expected, hides its booze well. Sweet raisins and caramel dominate the flavour, with some cherry on the back end. Tasty stuff.

rumore (769) - Rimini, ITALY - FEB 3, 2017
From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours rather dark brown, with some reddish reflections, and with whitish foam. Aroma is rich: licorice, molasses. But not strong in intensity. Body is markedly carbonated and dense, with some stickiness too. Taste is deliberately very sweet. Feels like drinking liquid sugar. Finish has some persistent sweetness.

Bottle. Nose is cinnamon, pepper, start anise, peppermint, dough, sweet malt. Taste is bread, dough, sweet malt, pear drops leading to spice, cinnamon, plum, candy sugar. Mouthfeel is slick. It’s cheerful, sweet and well suited to a cold evening.

Blmarques (13) - 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 (2711) - 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.
