3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bue en bouteille de 50cl, couleur noire, peu de mousse ni d’effervescence, une magnifique bière riche en bouche avec du fruit noir type mûre, puis une deuxième attaque sur le caramel et le réglisse. Fin de bouche qui rappelle le Cognac, un must.

Pours a deep rusty brown with a finger of khaki foam. Lots of candied bacon, nice smoked wood, sweet caramel, lingering earthy campfire dosed in water and caramel. Undertones of cocoa, pear and brown sugar. Great beer for a autumn campfire !

God knows if this is the correct entry. Listed as 12.5 not 13. The 1111 is disguised. Bottle thanks to Justin. Pours a clear brown color with a small beige head. A smoky and oak nose. The flavor is nice mixes of medium smoke, huge oak barrel, sweet malty base. Lovely. Complex.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle courtesy of Justin from Beaumont Market in Portland, Oregon. Colour...mostly clear amber with a thin off white head. Nose..highly phenolic and moderately smoky with roasted beef and singed pork loin. Palate...slight bit of metal at the start, then plenty of smoke and meat! Mid palate is eminently dry with a tangy and bitter feel and loads of oaky tannins. The finish is lengthy and redolent of Band-Aids.

Bottiglia da 375 ml. Color tonaca di frate con poca schiuma di color nocciola. Al naso frutta matura, legno e terra. Al palato si sente molto l’alcol inizio legnoso con finale tornato.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks arizvisg. Cloudy dark brown. Ripe fruit, wine, figs, prune and then some smoke in the nose. Smoky, a little peaty and faintly fruity taste. Full body, round, no carbonation, chocolate finish.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
At a tasting, thanks Ariel DSG and zvikar, no head at all, murky and a little deep brown colour, aroma of chocolate, dried fruit and some fresh cut wood, dominant flavour of cherry liquor, jam, dried fruits and a hint of sweet spices, some alcohol showing through, feels quite heavy. Nice but not overly exciting.
