GregClow (2975) - Toronto, Ontario, - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle from the brewery. Dark and clear ruby-brown with very little head. Aroma has a fair bit of wood and whiskey, but it’s pretty well integrated with the dark rye and licorice notes of the base beer. Soft body with pretty low carbonation - lower than I recall the original beer being, so I’m guessing some was lost during aging. Flavour isn’t quite as well balanced as the aroma - the charred oak and boozy whiskey notes from the barrel aging fight a bit with the roasted malt, coffee and cocoa notes of the original beer - but it’s still quite respectable, and mostly redeemed by a pleasant vanilla-toffee finish.

Idiosynkrasie (4826) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2015
650ml bottle. Clear, darkest brown colour with dark ruby red glimmer and small, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, tan head. Dark malty, fruity aroma, hints of oak and vanilla, notes of dark berries, a touch of leather and treacle. Taste is dark malty with notes of toffee, dark berries, hints of leather, oak, vanilla, some honey sweetness, a touch of blue grapes, some cinnamon; hoppy bitterness combines with the carbonation and leads to a finish with prickling mouthfeel. Rich and variegated, skillful handling of the oak aging process.

olio (7432) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 18, 2015
65 cl bottle @ Timo A. Bottled(?) F27-14.
Pours clear dark mahogany color with a small head. Bourbon on the nose, wood, dark berries, some caramel, mild burnt notes and faint vanilla. Caramel malts on the flavor, dark berries, vanilla, bourbon and wood. A quite interesting brew with the bourbon nyances.

lusikka (7053) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 18, 2015
650 ml bottle. Thanks Timo A. Pours a hazy brown colour with a small head. Aroma of sweet bourbon, bread and some licorice. Flavour of sweet roastiness, licorice, bourbon, tart wood, dark chocolate and grassy bitterness. Full bodied. Very smooth mouthfeel. Alcohol warms nicely. Dry, sweet, licorice finish. Good.

superspak (3337) - Michigan, USA - APR 29, 2015
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 6/27/2014. Pours crystal clear very dark reddish brown color with a 2 finger fairly dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of raisin, plum, fig, apple, caramel, toast, toffee, vanilla, oak, brown bread, bourbon, light nuttiness, light chocolate, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, dark fruit, and moderate bourbon barrel notes; with good strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, fig, apple, caramel, toast, toffee, vanilla, oak, brown bread, bourbon, light nuttiness, light chocolate, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Light herbal bitterness and oak/bourbon spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, plum, fig, apple, caramel, toffee, toast, vanilla, oak, brown bread, bourbon, light nuttiness/chocolate, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness, balance, and complexity of dark/bready malt, dark fruit, and moderate bourbon barrel flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with zero yeast ester notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is a very nice barrel aged doppelbock style. All around good robustness, balance, and complexity of dark/bready malt, dark fruit, and moderate bourbon barrel flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

RexTalionis (2985) - FINLAND - APR 17, 2015
Bottle. Clear dark brown in color with an off-white head. Raisin and ripe plums, some bourbony vanilla and sweetish fudge in aroma at first, bit of roastedness appears later on. Medium bodied with a quite smooth mouthfeel here. Sweet dark malty vibes, bit of spicy vanilla and overripe raisins in taste. Delicious, if you’re fond of a sweeter brew, this is good. Bit of wooden and grainy notes in the end.

adster (510) - HUNGARY - APR 5, 2015
Ismét egy kanadai főzettel akadtam össze a Deviator nevű duplabak személyében, melynek kólaszínű teste nem mindennapi, levegőztetve kecses vonalú aromákat villant meg. Krémes, fahordós jellegű vanília, bourbon jegyek kompozíciója kel életre, izgalmakkal teli illatjegyek lágy karaktere gondoskodik a hangulatos bevezetőről. Duplabak lévén igen egyedinek tekinthető ízvilága viszi tovább a meglepetésszerű hangulatot, közepesen száraz, whisky-központú szerkezete apró buborékokkal szellőztetett, krémes kortyokban teljesedik ki. Tölgyfaháncs, cukormentes vaníliafagylalt, pirított malátafolyam egyvelege kiegyensúlyozott komlós zárással búcsúzik, mely talán nem a legmeggyőzőbb példája az autentikus duplabak-stílusnak, s nem kell hozzá túl nagy képzelőerő, hogy a stoutos irányvonal mentén kirajzolódó típusok képét is felfedezhessük ízlelgetése során, a maga nemében mégis egy kivételesen nagyszerű főzet, mely leginkább jó pár, levegőztetve eltöltött perc után tárja elénk valódi értékét.
