sir__v (1939) - Lille, FRANCE - DEC 19, 2015
Bottle @ home from Deconinck, Vichte - BE. Color: deep dark brown beer with no carbonation and small ivory brown head. Smell: caramel and toffee domination. Brown sugar and malt concentration. Very sweet nose and caramel. Taste: full body with caramel and sweet taste. Good caramel malt and superb toffee notes. Not so spicy and really great. Very sweet beer with good attenuation. Aftertaste: caramel and brown sugar. I like it!

ciocanelu (1073) - 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 (3210) - 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 (7722) - 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.
