Maakun (3626) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2016
Bottle at home 6.5%. Very dark brown with light bitten head and lots of lacing. Raisins, figs, some milk chocolate, old fruit skins, dried out red wine, a bit dusty, old coffee dregs. Quite a lot of ’old’ notes mixed with dried fruits and sugary aromas. Under medium sweet and light bitter. Medium bodied with a bit slick feel and soft carbonation.

Ingogringo (10) - SWEDEN - APR 23, 2016
Mörkbrun ale med stabilt gräddigt vitt skum. Lätt arom av malt och torkad frukt. Lätt sötma och toner av dadel, fikon i smak. God, lite starkare belgisk brown ale men lite tunn smak.

Bebum (745) - USA - APR 10, 2016
Hazy copper color, tall tan head. Intense rusty nose. Full body, bright mouthfeel, moderate but adequately strong flavor, heat and carbonation, great balance, lingering palate with a delucious finish. Moderately sweet, enough bitterness and acidity to reach a perfect balance. Roasty, coffee, malty, yeasty, creme brulé, earthy. Considering that the sample I tasted was 4 years beyond its Drink By date, its an exceptional beer. Very easy drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
