Lore (1942) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 27, 2015
dark brown colour with ruby notes, medium sized creamy, long lasting beige head; extremely complex aroma of raisin, dried plum, wallnut, biscuit notes, chocolate, oak barrel and hints of herbal liqueur; taste is similarly complex with dried fruits, syrupy notes, liqueur, some chocolate, roastedness, wallnut cake and hints of capuccino; the aftertaste is equally dominated by syrupy sweetness and roasted bitternes; marvellous ’beer’

Werckmeister (1837) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - DEC 21, 2015
0,33l bottle at Känguru pub. BB 05/2017. Dark brown colour, small off white head. Smells of licorice, spices, light ly sour, some caramel, light bitter chocolate, dried fruits, raisins, decent smell. Full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. Tastes malty sweet, lightly sour, caramel, licorice, dried fruits, spices, raisins. Finishes bitter sweet and quite heavy with notes of dried fruits. Okish, not so much my thing, rather heavy.

BrewGoblin (633) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - DEC 13, 2015
Right out of the bottle I get a huge sweet cherry blast from this dark cherry coloured ale. A thick body juxtaposed against a zippy carbonation makes for an engaging mouthfeel. Notes of vanilla, cherry, rum cake, toffee, coconut, chocolate and some rye bread contribute to the taste of this alcohol-hiding beast of a brew. As delicious as it gets, this sipper leaves a fine sweetish cherry aftertaste and could keep me going all Winter.

sjogro (2138) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2015
Alles d’r op en d’r aan! De klonten gist in de fles zijn wel wat verontrustend. Backlog from 2014/12/03.

neur0 (1085) - GERMANY - NOV 22, 2015
(Flasche) Es ist fast schwarz mit einem starken rubinrotem Einstich, scheint filtriert mit einer braunen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist sehr schokoladig, röstig, getrocknete canberrys und ein klein bisschen Alge. Der Geschamck ist röstig, leicht säuerlich, bitter, im Abgang dominiert eine Meerwasser-Auster-Note. Diese bleibt dann auch auf der Zunge zurück
