olio (5855) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2014
75 cl bottle @ PBF IX.
Pours murky orange color with a small lasting head. A bit weird cardboardy notes on the aroma, otherwise nice caramel and ripe fruits with sweetish malts, some yeast also. Sweet malts and toffee on the flavor, quite strong alcohol burn and some spicy yeasty notes on the aftertaste. Feels quite old but it has still quite a lot of flavor. No freshness info so not sure about the age though.

kolymaTram (10) - brussels, BELGIUM - APR 18, 2014

Japalo (1086) - DENMARK - APR 14, 2014
Bottle@home after spring garden workout with tobak. Huge foam. Brown haze. Spicy. Dark fruit. Sweetness hides the alcohol very well. A bite more complexity needed. More malt than added sucker.
