sebletitje (7261) - Enghien, - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle sample @ Cantillon Quintessence 2012. Orangée foncée, pas de bulle, légère couche huileuse dorée au verre. Arôme est malté avec des notes de caramel, barrique et un vin macéré. Palais est impressionnant pour ses 12%, note maltée vers le liquoreux, qcq notes minérales, avec un rappel liquoreux de spéculoos, je note une fine note fumée venant peut être de la barrique. Cette dernière laisse une place subtile au vin sans pour cela avoir une dominance de raisin Le houblon reste en retrait et contribue a un ajout finement amer/fruité. Ici aussi, on entre dans une dimension où la bière fuse avec les liqueurs.

laiti (6730) - 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 (7253) - 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 (489) - 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 (2549) - Portland, 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 (1065) - 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!

AirForceHops (4077) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle, 2010 vintage. Hazy brown with ruby highlights. Aroma is dark fruit heavy with a light wine under the dark fruits. The flavor is rich with caramelized sugar, tobacco leaves, again mild wine hints and hints of oxidation. The flavors are tad off because it has no carbonation, totally flat, dead feel. Texture is oily with a viscosity like oil, body is a little lean. If this had carbonation it would improve it tremendously. Still all right all overall.

AdamJackson (3370) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 25, 2014
2010 Bottle, 50CL w/ a cork in a tin box. Picked this up in Lodz Poland at a beer store, for $20 USD (100PLN)

A - Very dark burnt orange, completely flat no head or fizz at all.

S - Nose is a small ashiness, a lot of burnt sugar, candy sugar and fig and raisin. Loaded with dark fruit. Unfortunately the nose is far more faint than I expected, I get oak obviously, no wine tannins or grapes. Sweet and syrupy.

T - This is very sweet, I get sweet orange peel, some savory candies, yeah lots of orange and an oaky finish

M - Oily, not viscous or thick, pretty basic taste especially compared to other Bwines from this brewery.

O - Well this beer is pretty good but for the price, I wouldn’t go after it again. Much to sweet.
