gilvanblight (825) - Windsor, Ontario, - OCT 27, 2012
Dark clear brown pour with white head. Thick malty nose. What an odd mouth. Quite the mix of taste and flavours. It may be a bit much. I haven’t decided yet. Sweet caramel at first, then a touch of bitterness that’s replaced by a really earthy malt. This is then replaced by a bit of a boozy burn. The aftertaste is roasty and lingers a bit too long. I do like the way the booziness kind of burns away the confusing beginning of the mouth. It’s a unique sensation but one I find I like. I prefer this quite a bit over Hobgoblin and I’m saddened that this is seasonal.

Bijl (686) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2017
Licht bruin, zeer helder, crèmekleurige schuimkraag, weinig koolzuur. Aroma: Beetje metaal, karamel, Moutig, brood/biscuit, iets kruidig. Smaak: Geroosterde mout, karamel, donker fruit , spicy noble hops, aarde/mossig en iets noot achtig. Meer kruidig dan bitter en iets droog in de afdronk en een beetje alcohol. Medium body en vrij zacht mondgevoel.

Malty, sweet, caramel on the nose. Same goes for the taste. Medium, oily, soft. Longish finish, somewhat alcoholic, somewhat fruity. Overall, could be better, could be worse.

From elcervecero. In Ikea’s pint glass. Watching Game of Thrones 7x01 + playing Pillars of Eternity. Caramel and even children bubblegum in a good body and great feeling thanks to a well adjusted noble hops bitterness. I want another

500ml bottle. Pours a dark ruby with a tan head. Nose is caramel, toffee, prunes, Christmas cake and earthy floral hops. Fairly thick sweet mouth feel. Taste is sweet caramel, toffee, dark fruits, slight alcohol burn, floral bitterness. Quite a grower this one, gets better as the beer goes down.

Bottle. Head retention great for a bottle. Caramel and toffee dominates smell and taste. Tastes and is strong alcohol wise. Is Nice and indulgent, if a little bit on the sweet side

La bière a goût de noix, fruité, avec une touche amère en arrière goût. Pas mauvaise.

lesifflebiere (1904) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2017
Couleur à mi-chemin entre l’acajou et le noisette (ou entre rouge et brun), mousse rare, texture mince. Un nez discret de sucre d’orge et de boisé. Bouche ronde, alcoolisée jusqu’à un certain point, noix et amertume en fin de gorgée. Rappelant une ESB sur stéroïdes, elle est savoureuse mais sa minceur cache mal son alcool, trop distrayant. Acceptable, sans plus.
