330ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 05-04-2014.
Shared with Diego Cotoya.
In short: a roasty dark ale.
Pours dark with little tan head. Short head retention, little lacing. Roasty, liquorice, caramel aromas. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is roasty, a bit spicy, dark liquorice, some ripe fruit. Sweet aftertaste. Enjoyable.

tomekk1978 (604) - Ząbki, POLAND - MAR 26, 2014
Barwa: ciemno miedziana, klarowna. Piana biała drobno pęcherzykowa, znikoma. Aromat: słodowy, orzechowy, alkoholowy. Smak: słodowy, ale niezbyt słodki, lekka kwaskowość, nuty orzechowe oraz alkohol i goryczka. Wspomniane dwie ostatnie cechy smaku są nieco zbyt męczące. Wolałbym piwo nieco bardziej słodowe i słodkie. Ogólnie niezłe, ale piłem juz lepsze.

_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 (3595) - 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 (9140) - 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.
