jackl (6814) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Keg @ Borefts 2012. The pour’s completely still reddish brown. No head, not bubbles. The nose is spple, spiced mulled wine, some cocoa posder and red fruits. Te taste is sweet liquid cotton candy, some spiced fruits, more mulled wine and caramel. Hints of red grape and rich rotting wood (in a good way). Diverse, complex palate. Soft, very drinkable. Wow, what a beer. One of the best of the festival. Complex, rewarding character.

Cunningham (6771) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2012
Deep brownish colour with a tan head. Sweet malt, fruity and a bit sour aroma. Rich sweet fruity, lots of caramel malt, and light sour flavour. To much alcohol.

bytemesis (6449) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle purchased for off-sale at the Birch. Pours hazy ruby chestnut, medium fizzy brown head, dissipates fairly quickly, decent lacing. Aroma is malty, toffee, raisin, caramel, date, vinous, oaky. Flavor is full sweet, light bitter, malty and rich, cocoa, dark sugars, red wine. Full body, creamy. Solid.

Finn (6197) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 3, 2015
Fra flaske på Haand Ølfestival 30 Mai 15. Delt med Rune. Mørk amber. Uklar. Filmskum. Søt fruktaroma. Smaken også søt. En del frukt. Alkoholen manifesteres nok gjennom overdreven sødme.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2012
Dense caramel ice cream and cookie dessert hits on the nostrils with just a whisper of alcohol, certainly less than I would have expected from a 14% brew, in the nose at least. A broad little fruit array is quickly ventured in, earth cherries, marmalade and peaches are all visited every other whiff. The rich and sweet type, halfway between liquid chocolate and port wine and yet with this alcohol level, you would have thought that a fair attenuation had been reached - perhaps, but there’s plenty of complex sugars remaining. While little head formation punctuates the pouring motion, in mouth, the carbonation is initially fairly active, though it slowly diminishes to leave a more liquorous texture after the beer has been sitting around for a few dozen minutes - which is almost inevitable if you drink a bottle by yourself. Raisiny, chocolatey, caramely, very desserty palate. Fair oak character with noticeable tannins, but not to the point where I feel the smooth, silky, currant-like Pomerol character is highlighted very much. That’s something rare enough in beer that I would have enjoyed it to take more room; it is tough for a sweet dark Belgian beer to make an overdose of balancing gracious tannins. An interesting recipe, but not one I’d like to revisit very often considering the price tag and rarity.

Marduk (6013) - Reval, ESTONIA - APR 13, 2016
500ml bottle (thanks martjoobolut). Hazy chestnut color. Tiny size, bubbly head, disappears. Fruity, apples, caramel, raspberry, sweet in aroma. Sweet, fruity, raisins, alcohol, touch of yeast in taste. Sweet raisins and sharp alcohol in aftertaste. Hopping is nice, but overall concept is way too boozy.

Iphonephan (5978) - McLean/Jackson Hole, Virginia, USA - APR 29, 2013
From a 500 ml bottle shared at home. Pours a dark cola brown with an off white head. Aroma raisins. Flavors of caramel, plums, dark cherries and candy sugar. Smooth and mellow, with low carbonation.
