wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, - JUL 17, 2011
{thoughts} Balanced, sourish flavor differs greatly from the succulent, sweet aroma.

{elements} Dark, cloudy, brown hue; short, tan froth. Intoxicatingly forceful aroma of chocolate, prunes, whisky and toasted walnuts with a hefty kick of vanilla. Moderate-heavy sweetness, moderate-heavy acidity, light-moderate bitterness; tastes something like a Belgian brown ale; sweetness is countered by a (slightly too strong) sourness; finishes with good tannic firmness. Medium-full body, lively carbonation, silky texture. 22 oz bottle @ GP Tuulensuu.

0,66l fles.Gedeeld met bryanvdv. Dit bier moet je niet koud drinken, meer als een dessertwijn. Geur van gedroogd fruit, appelstroop en ook wat gist. Smaak begint vold en zoet, complex met vanille, appel krenten en naarmate je langer wacht ook wat gebrande bitterheid met toffee en caramel tonen. Alcohol is redelijk aanwezig. In de afdronk komt het hout meer naar voren met een aangenaam zuurtje. Erg complex en interessant bier. Al Is het voor mij persoonlijk wat aan de zoete kant.

Bottle thanks to MrHangover! Pours deep auburn, medium tan head, creamy and long lasting, decent residual lacing. Aroma is smoky, peaty, some dark sugars. Flavor is light plus sweet, light bitter, peaky, smoky but not overpowering, some dark sugar but not a lot, a bit of Belgian yeast spiciness. Some heat, a bit hot for 9%. Fullish body, creamy mouthfeel. Tasty.

Lilja (2130) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2015
Ölföreningens julölsprovning 2014. Så gott med rök! Smak och doft av karamell, malt, marsipan, torkad frukt, trä, aska, tjära och rök. Rund och len, lagom sötma, komplexa smaker, välbalanserad, lång eftersmak. Så gott, så gott!

Vignale (2539) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2014
Flaska från Beergium drucken med ölföreningen. Rökigia islaydofter- och smaker även i denna fatlagrade version. Tycker generellt att Embrasse blir bättre efter fatlagringarna men att det är trist att de flesta är så rökiga. Torv, rökta charkuterier, lite tjära. Maffigt men överskuggar grundölet totalt.

Marduk (3991) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 12, 2014
660ml bottle (thanks FatPhil very much). Clear dark copper color. Small size, yellow head, stays. Licorice, candy, sweet, spices on aroma. Smoked, sweet, candy, mild hops in taste. So mellow and tender. 9% you must be kidding right? Full body. Massive sipper! MORE!

660ml bottle (BierKompass.de)
Lovely deep red, but the large beige head disappears quickly. Soft sweet woody aroma. Also woody in the taste, but the roast is very pleasant too, there’s almost a burnt roastiness too. Sweet malts. Body is odd, it’s a little thin, but you often get that from a bit of barrel aging, but fullish and sweet too. Very mellow, but still quite characterful. Perhaps a little drier than I would like, a little peaty, but still a gorgeous smooth relaxing mellowing brew. Could sip this for hours. Superb brew.

Bottle share at RBESG 2014 day 0 opening dinner. Big Thanks to Rene. Murky brown coloured pour with a small halo of cream head. Aroma is dark fruits, alcohol wood, apple. Flavour is full caramel, honey malts, smooth woody oak, some berry and apple. Rich deep flavour and well put together. Palate is full bodied, warming alchol in the finish and soicy.
