bierkoning (10563) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2010
From corked bottle @ BBF 2010. Deep dark brown color. Roasted maltaroma with cellar notes. Roasted, alcoholic flavor with dried apple and grapes. Good, but not my favorite barley wine.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2010
Bottle@2ndBorefts. Wonderful aroma but I’m afraid another Alvinne beer that I don’t get. It’s a bit unbalanced and the yeast is too dominant.

caesar (5321) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2010
Bottled @ BBF ’10. Dark redbrown color, medium head. Aroma is raisiny, some hop. Bit sweet taste, quite some carbonation. Decent.

Vaiz (3567) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2010
Bottle at 2nd BBF @ De Molen. Slightly sweet flavor, some slight sourness. Fruits and hops. Slightly rough and messy brew with a murky color and a slightly boozy finish. Not bad though.

goozen (3068) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2010
Bottle at Boreft Bier Festival 2010, Bodegraven. Almost black with some red glow coloured brew. Taste of dried fruits, and this one is very drinkable due the high alcohol (slightly dangerous).
