Fin (7408) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, - AUG 14, 2008
Had this at Casey and Traci’s tasting 01-08-08 cheers for the great beer and food you two Pours black moving to brown at the edges and with a beige head atop. Quite oily in texture I get a whiff of dusty hops, Loz gets some ’cheesy clothes’, some burnt toast, the bitterness seeps out with each mouthfull and escapes to the back of your mouth, lacking almost entirely in sweetness which is really quite pleasant for a change, bitterness quite pronounced and liquorice and bitter, bitter chocolate (at least 90%) also show. A nice beer that I’m surprised that i’ve only rated at 3.5, still thats what I thought at the time so thats what it will get.

MiP (13598) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle, 11.5%. Very vinous, and very barrelled aroma. Black colour. Very small light brown head. The flavour is also very vinous, has a bit of vanilla. Quite boozy with a distinct alcohol bitterness, but quite good. The flavour is actually quite fruity, has a sort of dark berry note.

Bamsen78 (3138) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle @ D-Day in Mojnlandet :-) Pours cloudy very dark brown with small tan head. Dark aroma of malt, caramel, coffee and oak barrel. Bitter, roasty flavour, with sweet notes of caramel malt and touches of coffee. Discernible notes of barrel. Bitter aftertaste with roasty overtones. Warming alcohol presence. Good.

Marstonlad (418) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 27, 2014
Bottle from Janoinen Lohi, Helsinki. Pours black with a non-existant head. Aroma displays well the oak barrel elements such as vanilla, whiskey, sherry and licorice. Taste is dryish and roasty and offers some variety but unfortunately also shows that the best before date has passed long ago. The hops are completely gone and the palate too light and thin for this style. Licorice and vanilla are too dominant; there is not enough depth or length in the taste. Not ruined totally but still far from the level it should be.

nimbleprop (4869) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 16, 2014
25cl bottle #2107. Pours an oily dark brown/black with some spitty, wispy brown head. Nose has a lot of booze, port, dark chocolate, cherry cordial, a little soy, toast, earthy red grape. Flavor is interesting, quite thin, licorice, oily, chocolate, raisin, soy, a little toasted sesame. Thin finish. A bit over aged.

Big thanks to Geokkjer, Meilby, and yngwie! Pours a deep brown color with a small beige head. The nose is oak, maple syrup, and dark fruits, almost prunes, and some caramel. The palate is ashy, woody, roasty, with bitter chocolate and dusty mouthfeel. Medium body, off dry finish.
