UPDATED: JAN 27, 2013 Pours a large mocha head atop a very dark brown body. The lacing is extremely long-lasting. Yeast is by far the most prominent smell, accompanied by some dark malts and fruits, along with a bit of alcohol. Taste is much the same as the nose with plenty of dark fruits, dark malt, alcohol, fruit and yeast spice, caramel and molasses. Very full mouthfeel with a moderate amount of carbonation. Complex and delicious beer. Fantastic example of the style and one of my favorites. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Butelka 330ml (BB 13.10.2019). Ciemno miedziane z delikatną pianą koloru ecru. Aromat nie powala, alkoholowy, lekko winny, nieco owocowy. W smaku wytrawne, owocowe, winne ale nic specjalnego. Dość wysoko nasycone, leciutko oleiste, pije się z przyjemnością ale oczekiwania były duże wyższe.

Непревзойденное блаженство при употреблении данного напитка. Одновременно пьешь и закусываешь! Очень мощное и продолжительное послевкусие. Градус почти не виден. Трудно найти. Самое вкусное пиво 100%

I don't like this style of beer generally and this won me over. Pours deep read with a nice light head. Taste is dark chocolate and toffee but with a very balanced bitterness which makes it easy to drink.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2017 Beer 2000. In an orval goblet. I had a couple of differing bottle ages today but this review is from the date on cap of .15.04.18. It's only taken a decade for me to hit 2k but I'm really not a ticker in my own defence. Fucken A. !!!!I have had this wale before, so I'm not like in awww or anything . Nose is an amalgamation of cool things.. bready , dark brooding fruity and boozy. A damn nice united mix of nuance is really fucken awesome. You smell the divinity in beer like this and are reminded ,while the vibes penetrate your nose -why you're an enthusiast for high boost beers made by isolated 50 year old celibate virgin monks . Poured kinda a subdued textbook autumn leaf colour..shy khaki head doesn't last too long. Tastes great. This could maybe heal throat cancer..the smooth vibes slide down my throat like hote butter on toast. Sippin this yo get sweet toffee, chocolate covered grape, tart plums, lots of bready vibes and boozy buzzes that finish bitter-tart... I'd say this a great beer. The dull and limp appearance holds this bAck from being a higher rate.

Aroma: plums, red currant, malts, warming alcohol. Taste the same but stronger. Mouthfeel creamy, alcohol warming, a little too strong for me but not disturbing. Very rich, yet balanced and enjoyable quad.

Rather closed Aroma compared with the full flavored taste. Taste is prunes, tad nuts, very nice yeast, a tad bread. Nice oxidation. Rather much carbonation. Palate is fizzy, because of the carbonation. More complex in the aftertaste: prunes, a little leather, milk chocolate.

Tag ikke fejl, dette er bare noget af det vildeste. Det kan siges med få ord "Fuck det er godt" Det er en meget hypet øl, den lever op til det hele. Hvis vi kunne drikke dette resten af vores liv, ville vi dø lykkelige. Det er satme i orden med super på!

Berlin, Muted Horn, butelka. Ar: swietny ciemny slod, ziarnistosc, mocno orkiszowy, slodko bardzo, super dusza slodowa, sladowe szlachetne alko, intensywnosc srednio-wysoka. Swietnie, najciekawszy balans slodowosci jaki czulem, ta belgia i orkisz, bosko. Wyg: koniakowy, brazo-zloto, piana cienka, redukuje sie do ringu. Sm: swietne, bardzo slodowe, lekka palonosc, belgia, mocna orkiszowosc, soczyste, mocna ciekawa dusza quadra, wysycenie wysokie, super jest ta slodowosc, to nie moj styl, ale jest zajebiscie. Pos: cudowny slod, orkisz, belgia, sladowe szlachetne alko. Ov: genialne, cudowne w swej subtelnosci.

Dark and opaque body with fruit aroma just like citrus clearly, medium head in the glass, very balanced in mouth. Anyway, complex by bitter and sweet taste as the temperature rising. It's really perfect, but too expensive maybe it costs in China.
