Love it. Strong mellow drink. 10.5 suggests Hops on first taste. Dry fruit added? Tasty. Found on tap Portland Or Horse Brass pub. mrhoppy (1196) - Santa Clara, California, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Holy mackerel this is good. Make sure you stir it up and get the sediment in the bottom. If you like that sort of thing. The sediment adds a lot of flavor Aroma is Belgium and alcohol esters up the nose. Very penetrating. What can I tell you to let you know how great this beer is? The kind of beer that preceeds great works of art. Big sweet and syrupy from start to finish but it but it doesn’t hurt the beer at all in fact it is what carries to the top rung. It is Stouty in a bitterness way but then it’s Barleywineness kicks in with a powerful sweetness and bitterness interplay. Are you with me? Then the chocolate kicks in. Prunes, raisins, figs, spices. Oh.... If I could only brew a beer like this? I would....... ? I must do this one again. Alusmamuts (2137) - LATVIA - DEC 15, 2012

Aus der Flasche (Version 2014) 2017-06 getrunken. Ok hier sorgen die 10,5% für einen vollen Körper und der transportiert eine Kombination aus malzige Süße und herbe Hopfenoten hervorrangend. Die Flasche von 2014 hat nun gute 3 Jahre gelagert und hat nun noch eine schöne leichte Honignote in dieses Bier gezaubert. Traumstoff!
