Pours brown, hazy, big head. Very complex aroma. Grapes, rasins, dark fruits, vanilla, alcohol, caramel, some yeast. Very sweet, but than dry taste. Full body, fizzy, oily feel. Very nice indeed.

Zacne piwo. Ciekawy aromat, lekko winny. Świetny wygląd. Smak złożony, aksamitny, trochę ciut za bardzo alkoholowy. Mimo wszystko jedno z najlepszych piw jakie piłem.

HuskerTan (2078) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - MAR 17, 2017
(Huge thanks, Brandon "Clownoisseur"!) Bottle. Molasses, fruit cake, raisins, caramel, port wine, subtle Christmas spice, complex. A- Brown color, cloudy liquid, tan head. T- Complex, raisins, subtle booze, caramel, molasses, prunes. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, complex finish. O- My 2,000th rate! Thanks to Clownoisseur for the great surprise! Pretty much lives up to the hype. Way better than Bernardus 12 and right along side Rochefort 10. Maybe not the best beer in the world but worth the experience and certainly a must try beer. Excellent stuff. The greedy me wants a whole case now to age and try over the years. Superb, superb, superb.

MatiF96 (160) - POLAND - MAR 17, 2017
Brązowe, nieprzejrzyste. Obfita biała piana, ktra z czasem redukuje się do krążka. Aromat bardzo złożony. Ciemne owoce, melasa, figi, cukier, nuta szlachetnego alkoholu. W smaku ładnie ułożone. Jest słodycz, kandyzowane owoce, chlebowość, karmel. Wysycenie nie za wysokie. Sporo ciała. Dominuje słodycz ale skrka od chleba stanowi kontrę. Bardzo dobre, typowo degustacyjne piwo choć raczej nie mogę powiedzieć że najlepsze na świecie

Maracuja05 (1105) - Mainz, GERMANY - MAR 13, 2017
12-03-17 // in loving memory! Dark brown beer, small white head/ lacing. Very dark and complex beer. Malty fruity yeasty notes all well blended into a great beer.

DavyK (41) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - MAR 11, 2017
Couldnt believe they sell this at Brel in Glasgow! We did the Pepsi challenge with this and St Barnardus ABT12. This wins. Big, frothy lacing. Everything that goes on goes on in an incredibly balanced way: theres sweetness, malt, booze, biscuit, bit of raisin. Aftertaste lingers and develops for ages. Incredibly well made.

Oxytocin (88) - - MAR 6, 2017
330 ml bottle, chestnut, grey-ish color, frothy big (only shortly lasting) big head. spices (piment, cloves, cinnamon), malty, toffee, baked apple, sweet start, changes to nice bitterness, well balanced, aromas of the taste very similar to the aromas you can smell. Alcoholic taste (maybe a lot of the bitterness is coming from the alcohol rather than the hops?). rather well hidden alcohol. full body, carbonisation: tickling.

PowY (499) - AUSTRIA - MAR 6, 2017
330 ml bottle. Pours a chestnut brown with a large but quickly disappearing frothy off-white head. The aroma is lightly yeasty with fruity notes of grapes, lightly vinous then wintry spices - Christmas cookie. Medium to full body with a medium to lively carbonation. Medium to medium-strong sweetness in the beginning followed by a light bitterness. The taste starts malty with caramel, honey, brown sugar and some alcohol, wintry spiced baked apple, some woody notes.

330 ml bottle at home. Possibly the best beer I have ever tried. Rich, complex, unfiltered beer. Aroma hints dark fruits, with a mouthfeel that evolves to touch every single receptor of your tongue.
