77ships (5561) - Antwerpen, - OCT 9, 2012
Bottle sampled @ Quintessence 2012. With some fine chocolate caviar served alongside. Aged on Italian red wine. Whiskey sized pour of a completely flat, not the slightest inkling of a head of a brandy looking liquid - colour me impressed. Smell is very sweet caramel mixed with dark sugar, liqueur, honey, dark fruits, wood. Taste is slick, bit thick, oily goodness, caramel, toff, liqueur, concentrated caramelized sugar, maple light dark fruits leading in a lightly woody and vinous finish. I liked this one even more than the already exceptional Baladin Xyauyù Barrel - even rounder, slicker - mighty fine stuff.

Woody and less vinegary than xiauyu, faint on the after taste and aroma. A watered down version of xiauyu if you take them in that ordered.

laiti (7643) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 30, 2015
10 cl sample (11%) @ Baladin Open, Rome as "Terre 2010." Aroma is sweet with licorice, raisins and hints of hay. Flavour has licorice, raisins, sweet sugary tones and rye pudding. Close to Xyauyù, but not that rich or intensive.

olio (7958) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 30, 2015
10 cl sample, 2010 vintage @ Open Baladin, Rome.
Pours murky brown color with no head. Again, quite sweet with plums and raisins, caramel and some brown sugar, the red wine barrel is quite faint. Sweet plums on the flavor, caramel malts, sugar and some earthy notes too. Nice sweet BW but a bit simple. Tasty anyway.

Bill Becker (566) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Corked and waxed bottle. +$35 for 16.09 ounces. It’s a murky dark brown with no foam, no lacing. It has a lovely Port smell that I noticed as soon as I removed the cork. A bit of a wine aroma peeks out. The taste has the Port at the front as well though more of that wine aspect does shine.. The mouthfeel is as good as it can get without there being any carbonation. Some would call this a non carbonated, oxidized mess but I have had them there flavours and mouthfeels before. Anniversary, Jubilees, Thomas Hardys. .and I am a FAN!

Lukaduke (2724) - Gray, Maine, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Pours a dull walnut umber color with a trace of bubbles rising to the top. Nose is soft burnt sugar, maple candy, dark fruits and some toasted grain. Palate follows with more softness and gentle sweet sugar notes. Toasted grain, malted milk, tobacco, buckwheat honey and a light slickness on the finish.

JBPortland (1216) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 1, 2015
500ml bottle shared thanks to Lukaduke! Pours dark brown with no head. Nose is rich complex dark sweet bready raisin, dark fruit, plum, some spice, spirits, wood, wine. Taste holds all the complexity of the nose with a soft chewy mouthfeel, finish is sweet bready dark fruit and toasty wood spice, vinous dark berry and raisin. Reads more like a fine spirit than a beer. A true desert, very tasty!
