jaghana (5095) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JAN 25, 2016
Bottle 50cl, an amber brown beer with good head. Nose is on grain, candied fruits, plum and quetsches notes. Aroma is on a sweet caramel, plum, dark cherries, ripped fruits, alcohol well hidden, less complex than expected. Finish has light chocolate notes, very sweet anyway.

SirLimpsalot (3119) - SWEDEN - JAN 16, 2016
@ Basunen 16-1-16: stor koladoft men även lite papp. Smaken är stor och fyllig med tydlig preg av kola och torra nötter.

mariuspoenari (417) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2016
Dark ruby pour, thick as hell, with no head and a very thin lacing that is slow to rise to the surface. Smells like maple syrup, caramel, prunes, figs, cherry jam, strawberry jam and faint coffee. Bitter-sweet taste, kinda simple for a barleywine, with caramel and dried fruit dominating the taste, on top of a bitter, slightly metallic feel. Full bodied and with a smooth mouthfeel.

Boutip (5465) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle: Poured a cooper color ale with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of caramel and biscuit malt with light dry notes. Taste is a nice mix of caramel malt with nice dry biscuit malt with light residual sugar and toffee. Body is about average with good carbonation. Love the balance of this beer with good level of complexity. Nice Belgian take on the style.

SkillsFactory (368) - ITALY - DEC 16, 2015
Tra l'ambrato e il rosso con riflessi dorati, velata dai lieviti, schiuma beige poco persistente. Aroma di banana matura e albicocca essiccata, note di ciliegia, leggero tostato, note oleose e di melassa. Al palato stesse note fruttate con la ciliegia più presente in coda, insieme a note tostate ed etiliche misti ad un bell'erbaceo che equilibra la bevuta. Corpo pieno, poco carbonata, texture oleosa.

martjoobolut (2102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 16, 2015
Bottle, 2014 vintage (from Koht). Pours dark ruby with beige head. The head stays. Aroma is intense raisins, sweetness, malt, candi. Flavor is sweet and sour, some saltiness, raisins, malt, slight metallic notes, sour berries, and toffee. Finish is malty-woody-dry bitter with warming alcohol. Overall: great brew, sweet-malty booze bomb, just as I like it.
