Bov (9325) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 17, 2012
from Erzbierschof - hazy dark brown beer with no head retention; gentle whisky-like aroma with notes of cherries and caramel; gently earthy, some sweetness and a moderate malt backbone; low bitterness; malty finish with more notes of cherries - the less interesting of the serie that far

Bottle from Au Grain D’Orge, Crissier
Dark brown color, with almost no head. Mild aroma of chocolate and whiskey. Some malt and caramel aroma; the light whiskey presence highlights the sourish components, without leaving a mark.

yngwie (13204) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2012
Bottle. A clear one, almost brown in color and with a small, off-white to light beige head. Caramel, oxidation, some booze, dried fruits and a vinous touch too. The flavor is pretty much the same, with some vanilla. Too much oxidation I think, at least compared to what the beer else has to offer. Full to medium body, soft and smooth, and with a certain warmth. A rather special beer, decent, but not impressive. 120622

rand (1269) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 11, 2012
Bottle 33 cl from erzbierschof.ch. Red-brown with wide beige head, magnificent laces. Aromas of peated malt, smoked, wet wood, fruit and Bourbon. The mouth is in agreement with aromas, oak, compote, walnut and chestnut, vanilla. Finale with warm notes of Bourbon. Avoids the heaviness and the frequent bludgeon of alcohol of beers aged in barrels.
