_ocean_ (6) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAR 4, 2014 does not count
Aroma is lovely. But the bitter, sweet, friuty, sour taste just doesn’t do it for me. Have to try yourselves as we all have different taste buds! ,)

Vaiz (3261) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle at home. Dark brown pour, almost no head. Aroma of sugary malts, licorice, somewhat roasted, slightly spicy and with some buttery English hops. Flavor is quite sweet, slightly spicy bitter, thick and malty. Decent texture, a bit out of balance, but clean and well drinkable.

Benzai (7220) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle shared with Dutchdrebus @ weekly tasting. Very dark brown with a deep dark red glare coming through when held into the light. Medium sized, quickly diminishing light brown head that leaves good lacing. Smell and taste malts, dark fruits, raisin, dark malts and maybe a slight hint of leaves. Don’t think this is a barley wine at all. Traditional ale perhaps or a bock.

Cask at Christian Firtal. Dark brown with a small off-white head. Malty aroma of toffee and caramel, with brown sugar, dried fruit and a touch of something yoghurt-like. Very sweet, cloying flavour of dried fruit, malt and dark sugar

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 7, 2014
04/02/2014 Buskers Pub (tap). Miele di castagno-mogano, limpida, schiuma bianco sporca media, leggera ma molto persistente. Al naso lieve nota metallica, che diminuisce leggermente col tempo, sentori di malto, biscotto, frutta matura, quasi nessuna traccia di luppolo. In bocca va decisamente meglio, l’attacco è dolce, ma non stucchevole, mostra una beva sorprendente. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Peccato il naso, per i resto niente male.

Cask-conditioned at the Crofter’s Rights, Bristol 10/1/2014. Deep, reddish-brown with a slight, off-white head. Big, toffee, brown sugar and warming alcohol notes, with some oak and toastiness in the background and a lingering, sweet finish. A real sipping beer.
