Flaska från beernavigator. En skumkaskad ur flaskan. Svårt att avgöra hur skadat ölet är. Hur som helst relativt syrligt vilket jag inte uppfattat att det skall vara. Också relativt rökigt vilket jag också blev förvånad över. Så i det här skicket närmast lik en lätt rökig syrlig rödöl. Och som det funkar den relativt bra men jag får köpa en flaska till och prova om det ska vara så.

Caoba oscuro, espuma beige. Aromas de frutos rojos maduros muy intenso. Cuerpo denso, sabor afrutado, uva, pasas, final seco moderado. Buena sour.

Geen voor te herinneren, is niet slecht, maar er is niets in de smaak waarvoor ik het nog eens zou kopen

Alengrin (2463) - BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2014
One of Alvinne’s three Epiphany beers, this one made with four grains and three spices. Yellowish beige, creamy, thick foam (even some gushing when opening the bottle), quickly diminishing; colour a dark ruby brown with a wine-red glow, misty. Aroma of rich malts (chocolate and caramel), pear, plums, dates, bananas, old ’graanjenever’, cloves, coriander, cardamom, port wine, cinnamon; deep and rich multi-layered malt taste, sweetish with obvious spices (predominantly coriander), liqueurish finish with a light toasted bitterness reminiscent of a Scotch beer.

Stubby bottle from Party Source. Pours a clear reddish brown color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have some sweet malts, ample herbs and spices, coriander, mildly tart ginger, wood. Interesting, but not something that I would seek out again.

Lots of spices in the smell and taste as well. A bit of chocolate and liquorice. Too much spice for me to really enjoy, but a fun experience.

Aroma is burnt wood. Pours dark brown with little head and light carbomation. Taste is burnt. Seems like its probably good but not my style.

teddybeer (2344) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 7, 2014
From my backlog Dark coppery colour with an off-white head with medium lasting and nice lacing. aroma has notes of barrel, red fruits and slightly sourish. Flavor has a moderate sourness, vinous hints, wood and slightly red fruits, mainly berries. Sourish final with hints of wood.

Tap at Bar Animal. Complex nose: bergamotte, bubblegum, lactic, horse blanket notes? Dark brown, big golden head. Roast, wood, lemon, bubblegum and berries, dry bretty notes, mint. Dry medium body, mellow mouthfeel. Leather and chocolate finish. Unusual, especially the bubblegum notes ( I guess from the spices?) but really well balanced and pleasant to drink
