4.7
dorain (177) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2017
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!

monk191 (1959) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 2, 2017
A nice grand cru, classic Belgian. Pours a nice red-brown with a tan head. Smells good, malty and herby. Taste is Belgian, with herbs, Malts and fruit. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4.1
Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 23, 2017
Chestnut brown, with a big, even head. Deep, dark fruitiness on the nose - fig, cherry, toffee, raisin. On the palate, soft and smooth, with rich dark fruitiness and soft, sweet sugars, cut by just a touch of alcohol. Big and complex, but smooth, creamy and balanced. Yum.

4.2
vinivini (2227) - Gomel, BELARUS - MAY 23, 2017
Muddy bronze ale with dense ivory head. Notable lacing. The aroma is fruity. Apple, pear, plum. Caramel. Vinous. Medium to full body. Complex taste. Nice fruit, caramel, candy, spicy yeast. Some hops. Delicious indeed.

4.2
Paladares (229) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 19, 2017
Botella. Color marrón oscuro casi negro. Opaca. Espuma no muy abundante, que desaparece rápidamente. El aroma promete. Fruto rojo, bizcocho, algo de cítrico... Extremadamente densa en boca. Pero muy rica. Múltiples matices. Empieza con un sabor licorado con toques especiados, le sigue un cierto tono a chocolate y en paladar viene el caramelo disimulando muchísimo sus diez gradazos. Muy muy rica.

3.9
TychoJames (1283) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2017
Flaska bishops Örebro. Mellanbrun kulör. Doft av jäst, säd, lakrits och torkad frukt. Fyllig och komplex smak. Russin, trä, kakdeg och jäst.

4.4
kapusil (1412) - 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.

4.3
Cristobal37 (1117) - 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.

3.1
kaserov (677) - 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.
