Gurthnar (1253) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 11, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2013 Bottle. Clear golden colour, small white head. Aroma hops, caramel, dark fruits, light roasted. Taste medium bitter, almost medium sweet, sweet wood hits you right away, light smoke. Barrel aging brought a new dimension to this beer, I am not sure if I like it, but it is definitely interesting. Minor dark fruits in the taste also, minor caramel. Finish smooth sweet wood with hoppy bitterness. Not bad, but not a lager of the year either. 7 3 7 3 14 - 11.9.2012

Rerate 23.1.2013 - Clear golden colour, nice stable white head. Aroma is plum, raspberry, wood, very light mint (where does it come from?). The wood in this beer is sweet. Some grapefruit sourness appeared, also diacetyl. Wood seems to be fighting with the hops here, mostly in finish. I definitely do not think putting this in barrels was a good idea. However it is good that I had a chance to taste the unusual.

Davros (1806) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 10, 2012
Pours amber with a large, lasting head. Nose shows honey, vanilla oak notes, buttery toffee, spicy hops and alcohol. A bit weird. Some oak transfers through as a flavour, along with the spicy notes, alcohol and soft toffee. The alcohol seems a little harsh and whisky-like. Carbonation is too high.

courtesy of Toni Flükiger - clear bright golden-bronze beer with a poor head retention; gently woody with notes of apples and mango; quite full-bodied and gently oily; very astringent and dry; a long bitterness with more notes of wood and yellow fruits

33cl bottle, batch #118. Bbe 04/2013. Poured honey colored, thin white head. Aroma has honey, vanilla, sweet fruity. Flavor has vanilla, wood, some sour berries and malt coming through later. alcohol warmth. Finish is long with vanilla, and fruity, apricot notes.

Bottle (330ml from Brewdog.com):
Some sourness straight off the bat with a mix of lager malts and some vanilla. The smell is very sweet and I can detect some butterscotch and a touch of oak. The smell of this one is great with a touch of grain and alcohol right at the end.
Bright but slightly cloudy golden amber colour with a thin, patchy lacing in lieu of a head. There is some build up of lacing around the sides though and the colour itself is a nice one.
Good sweet notes to begin with mixing a combination of vanilla, butterscotch and a touch of spice and grain. There is some pepper and a little citrus with hints of orange and apricot and a very nice, alcohol laced sweet finish.
Sweet with a good mix of fruits, there is some grain and alcohol present but it is subdued and carbonation is mild to low with a medium body. The finish is a wet some and the sweetness lingers for some time after the drink is swallowed.

Sweet tasting beer with a great mix of vanilla and butterscotch that leaves you wanting more. There is some grain and touches of alcohol that although enjoyable could have done with being slightly weaker.
