Koelschtrinker (10504) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 28, 2014
Erstaunlich flacher Antrunk, die Himbeeren sind nur erkennbar da andere Aromen fehlen. Alkoholisch, uninteressant. 9/8/9/8/13/9

Ferris (3899) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle - Vintage 2009 - Molasses and booze with lots of barrel notes. Jet black with a thin beige head. Lots of Whisky and molasses. Sweet and still hot. In its day a great beer, but now a little hot and unbalanced.

yngwie (13395) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2014
Bottle, 375ml corked. A gusher, producing a dense, two-finger high beige head over an unclear, brown body. The aroma has booze, raspberries, some roasted malts and a little chocolate. It’s warming on the palate, full-bodied and with a pleasant carbonation level, and the whisky pretty easy to taste. Roasted malts and some berries too. Warming, bitter, chocolate finish. Although too boozy, I wouldn’t mind having it again, sure a nice one. 140307

Theydon_Bois (8294) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle split with JF at a Sue’s away mini tasting in the ’Sham, 11/03/14, acquired from Norreport Estate Wine in Hostelboro, DK #250/1060. Light black with a thin tan covering that soon dissipates to limited spotting. Nose is bitter roasty, tangy dark berry fruits, woody BA effect, light smoke, whisky. Taste comprises a big raspberry blast, mineral bite, smoke, BA whisky tinges, roasty tones. Full bodied, moderate carbonation, a little lifeless. Decent BA affair, delivers plenty of flavour and complexity, blending sweet and smoked tones and disguising the alcohol well, perhaps a little past its best in terms of appearance and feel now that it’s 5 years old but still worth seeking out none the less - the business end delivers!

angel77 (901) - oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 13, 2014
Botella de 37.5 cl número 177 de 1060. en casa bar beni en septiembre de 2011. De Zombier. Cuerpo fuerte con color negro intenso y espuma algo oscura no muy persistente 8.7 vol. Muy muy buena, intensos sabores tostados y quemados con bastante amargor y un final de madera empapada en whisky bastante poderoso. Ligero sabor dulce (frambuesa negra según etiqueta) y maltoso al principio. Para repetir sin duda, deberíamos haber comprado unas cuantas botellas más que pena...
