Koelschtrinker (17342) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUL 25, 2011
Süß karamelliger Antrunk mit leichten Alkoholnoten, die nicht weiter stören. Vollmundiger und süßer Mittelteil, hier sind Holz- und Traubennoten vorhanden, auch hier ist der Alkohol erahnbar. Im Hintergrund lauern weinartig angehauchte Malzaromen. Der Alkohol steigt zum Ende in die Nase, dennoch kann man insgesamt von einer guten Balance sprechen. Ein wenig herb, Rund, vollmundig. Hellmalziges, fruchtig süßes Finish. Ein echt leckeres Bier! 11/12/12/12/11/12

harrisoni (17284) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2009
Bottle at the Alvinne pre Zythos event 09. Hazy amber. A bit winey on aroma. It’s ok, bit winey, almost white wine grapey so I’m guessing it’s aged in Chardonnay barrels. Some vanilla. Pretty good. I have another bottle to try at home.

yngwie (16507) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 25, 2009
Bottle, 75cl, courtesy of ChristianScheffel. An almost clear, golden beer with a white head. Alcohol, sweetness and honey on the nose, not particularly interesting. Sweet flavor with some honey, hops in the background. Warming, full-bodied and well-carbonated. Sweet, honey finish with some alcohol and bitterness. The beer doesn’t present itself as very balanced, probably not the best beer to barrel. 090822

Dedollewaitor (15537) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2009
75cl bottle. Thanks Christian Scheffel. Pours cloudy orange with a frothy white head. Sweet malty and oaky nose. A bit of yeast. Overall sweet fruity and oaky flavor. Medium and smooth palate. Tasty but not overly complex as hoped for.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2009 Bottle at Alvinne pre-ZBF09. Cloudy grey amber colour. Almost no head. Good alcoholic flavour, lots of fruit and maltiness. Good peppery finish, slightly rough.

Christian (12885) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2009
Cloudy orange with small particles floating. Small white head. Fruity aroma with a little oak. Too sweet malty and dried fruit flavour with a hint of oak in the finish.

bierkoning (12403) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2010 Bottled. Amber color. Vinous aroma, like oak aged burgundy wine, hiding the malt. Malty sweetish flavor with hazelnuts, strong notes of red wine, toffee, oak, alcohol and raisin. The burgundy wine barrels dominate this beer, but also add complexity. A very good marriage! 750 ml bottle, enjoyed 21.07.10: 11,5%. Light amber color, cloudy. Oak and citrus in the vinous aroma. Oak in the slightly tart flavor. Lemon. Vinous notes. Malt. Alcoholic with soft Rodenbach-like notes. Good and complex.
