Elwood (3223) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Serving: 330 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a murky brown with a small and short lived tan head. Lots of dried fruit in the nose, fig, prune, and raisin. A little earthiness in the flavor to pair with caramel and the dried fruit notes. Odd finish that seems to coat the tongue. Glad this one didn’t have the protein issues I’ve had in the past.

Moravius (491) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 21, 2013
Flasche (33 cl). - Tiefes Rotbraun. Schwere, dunkle Malzsüße, ergänzt durch üppige dunkle Frucht (Kirsche, Sultaninen). Noten von Likör, Bitterschokolade, Nüssen, Holz. Sahniges Mundgefühl; schwer aber nicht klebrig. Im Abgang eine ungewöhnliche, erdige, holzige Herbe, die an einen deutschen Doppelbock erinnert. - Großartiges Bier, das ich wegen seiner reichen Fruchtigkeit einem Doppelbock vorziehe.

Frothmeister (559) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2013
330ml bottle. Wow. That’s how I’ll start this. Pours a cloudy dark chestnut brown with some sediement floaters, and a good sized creamy beige head. Aromas of raisin, dates, brown sugar, molasses, and dark bread. The taste is sweet, with black licorice, molasses, prunes, a light menthol note, alcohol, and dark rye bread. Excellent.

Botella. Aroma dulce con notas de frutos secos, algo de levadura, algo de café. En boca perfecto equilibrio entre roasted malts, levaduras y dulzor con un final ligeramente amargo y dulce largo y complejo. Una agradable sorpresa

StoutHead (646) - DENMARK - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear red with a huge head, and despite my careful pour it had a LOT of sediment in it. Aroma is of malt, various fruits, molasses and a hint of smoke. Taste is of sweet malts, lots of different fruits, spices and honey. Starts out sweet and has a long sweet aftertaste too. A hint of bitterness and tartness in there too. Very complex and very enjoyable to drink. Fantastic.
