ciocanelu (905) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 14, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Review from notes. Slightly hazy brown color with beige head. Aroma has nothing really special, just some malt character. Taste is quite interesting, malt, caramel, dark sugar, molasses and some liquorice. Nice one, balanced and drinkable yet really tasty.

Vignale (3082) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2015
Flaska från Beernavigator. Mörkt mahognyfärgad med lågt skum mycket jästpartiklar. Doft öppnar inte riktigt upp sig muscovado, alkoholvärme och torkad frukt. Småbubblig i munnen, söt med en koncentrerad och lite eldig smakbild. Cognac, torkade päron, katrinplommon och fikon, brända mandlar. Riktigt gott.

Desverger (6997) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2015
Tap@Taphouse, Copenhagen - pours dark amber with a nice full puffy off-white head. Aroma and taste is a mix of medium to high sweet malts and dark dried furit, treacle and caramel, some spices into the finish. Very nice.

Sample at YNWA Beershop. Murky dark brown, no head on my sample. Aroma has cocoa, caramel and dried fruit. Similar flavour, sweetish, light syrup feel but still with good bitterness. Smooth with well balanced ABV. Good christmas beer.
