ElDesmadre (2279) - Mikołów, POLAND - JAN 9, 2013
Bottle traded with Cunningham. Dark malty aroma with caramel, chocolate, earth, nuts, licorice, prunes, raisins, port wine and alcohol. The flavour is reminiscent of chocolate filled with nuts. Light sweet, light bitter taste, full body, velvety carbonation. Slightly astringent, alcoholic finish, nevertheless very pleasant. A fine Christmas treat.

Foffern (1439) - Bodø, NORWAY - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle at home. Vintage 2011. Has a hazy black colour with a light beige medium head. Aroma of dried fruit and a good dose of roasted malt, along with coffee, oak and dark berries. Nice roast in the flavour as well with more coffee, dried fruit, rye bread and some licorice and barbeque sause. Feels like it has been aged in bourbon barrels. Has a slick and rich mouthfeel, and a light bitterness. A nicely balanced ale with a good roasted touch.
