mjs (5112) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2013
(Bottle, 0,25 l - batch 866B, at OlutExpo 2013) The beer poured deep dark brown and quite cloudy. Its head was small and lightly brown. Aroma had wood, vineousness and malts. Palate was medium bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were roasted malst, wood, vineousness, sweetness and low bitterness. Afteraste was woody and bitter. A beer that had again too much wood and too little beer.

RexTalionis (2963) - FINLAND - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle 25 cl. BBE 20.12.2017. Pours reddish brown in color with a tan head. Good old stables in aroma, dark sweet fruityness. So smooth and creamy. Light boozy notes, but this is acceptable. Sligtly vinous notes, some marzipan sweetness, some more overripe garden fruityness in taste.

Inbreak (2626) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 18.10.2013, 0,25l bottle @ home:
Big creamy longlasting head. Aroma is sweet fruity, red sour-ish berries, redwine barrel, malts, grass, caramel, hints of paint and citrus. Taste is kind of oaky sour, redwine, paint, almond essence, grass, berry skin, malts, caramel. Medium bitterness. Nice, but not even close to when I first tasted this one about 7,5 months ago. Then it was kind of oxidiced, sweet fruity with lots of butterscotch, just fantastic. No idea why it was like that then, and basicly a different beer when testing it several times after that.

morri (243) - NORWAY - SEP 27, 2013
250ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Huge frothy light brown head which disappears quickly, but with excellent lacing. Dark brown/reddish body, almost black. Aroma of malt, a little salty. The wine aroma is definitively present, almost lambic-ish. The alcohol warmth hits immediately in the mouth. Well balanced sour and slightly sweet taste. Long lasting aftertaste, but a 250ml bottle is enough.
