BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2007
Poured from a 500ml bottle into a chalice, dark brown with no head to speak of. Aroma was a big dose of dark fruit. The taste was sweet and as expected a lot of prune, raisin, fig and the like. Lightly carbonated. Very little alcohol burn. This pales in comparison to something like St. Bernadus ABT 12, but still a nice beer and an under-rated brewer.

Mindwarp (295) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2017
Pours brown/black with a light tan head. It has a sweet dark fruit aroma. Taste follows the nose with some molasses and a little bit of booze. Overall a real drinkable beer thanks to Star Liquor in Madison Wi.

carlom (92) - ITALY - NOV 3, 2017
Colore marrone schiuma poco persistente. Aromi di frutta secca, prugna, malti tostati. Al palato uvetta, prugna, cioccolato, caramello, note vinose e legnose evidenti, zucchero. Carbonazione sostenuta, corpo pieno. Una birra in cui prevale il gusto dolce per tutta la bevuta.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2017 Butelka 0.33 l zakupiona w Belgi. Piana ładna, ciemna, tworzy ładny lacing. Wyczuwalne nuty czekoladowe, kawowe oraz fenolowe i estrowe. W smaku czuć delikatną paloność oraz słodycz (szczególnie wyczuwalny słodki finisz). Piwo godne polecenia.

Brown color, large beige head. Sweet aromas of sugar, bananas, yeast, dried fruit, caramel and peach candy. Very sweet taste with caramel, bananas, candy sugar, licorice, yeast, cinnamon and alcohol. Too sweet.

ciocanelu (2953) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - AUG 22, 2017
Murky brown color with tan head. Aroma has some tart fruits, toasted malt in the background and some brown sugar. Taste is quite yeasty with fermented fruits, some spices, brown sugar and an earthy bitterness on the finish. Medium plus body, medium carbonation, well hidden alcohol. This beer has all kinds of flavors: tart fruits, sweet sugar and bitter hops but the combination is not very harmonious.

geolgau (468) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - AUG 16, 2017
Aroma is nice: caramel, burnt sugar, alcohol vapors, dates. Taste is strong and sweet, but feels quite balanced: melted brown sugar, liquor wine, caramel, figs, dates, lightly spiced. Alcohol is slightly present, but it’s easy to drink. Medium to full body, low on carbonation. Very good!
