Muggus69 (2142) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2015
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector Murky brown looking thing, gushed a bit but holds a small orange-tan head. Really interesting aroma - dark nutty chocolatey malts with notes of bruised apple, tropical fruits, lifted sweet spices, citrus. Body quite full yet dry, lingering, some acidity, tannin even. Slightly funky, interesting flavour to it - sweet caramel, nutty, almost chocolatey malts, with sour, bruised apple notes,lots of savoury spice - clove, star anise? - finish is a touch warming, some acidity, bitterness lifted. Another interesting beer from this brewery.

ruigo (2397) - PORTUGAL - MAY 30, 2015
33cl bottle. Hazy brown colour with a tan head. Spices, yeast like spontaneous fermentation scents and caramel in the aroma. Soft carbonation and medium body. Taste is like a oud bruin with some notes of an amber ale. Overall, an interesting beer although drunk out of its time (Christmas?).

Ölföreningen julölsprovning 2014. Smak och doft av karamell, jäst, farinsocker, torkad frukt, rök och aska. Fruktig, viss syrlighet, lagom sötma, välbalanserad med fin beska. Mycket gott!

guiroul33 (255) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle 33cl from Bierhall De Koninck, @ home. Aroma of vinegar, red wine, wood. Taste is similar with a mix between sweetness and sourness. A sort of mix between an oud bruin and a brown beer, quite original.
