ThirstyBird (1707) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - APR 18, 2014
Bottle @ kulminator shared with BelgBeerGeek. Pours a clear bright amber with a nice tan head. The smell is complex with rich malt sweetness, dark fruit, brown sugar and caramel. This one is bursting with flavor, fruit, some tartness,wood, roasted grain, a touch of cardboard. booze with a dry, crisp end. Mild carbonation with medium body that is slick.

Shared bottle at Kulminator. Sparkling, deep nut goldenbody with a small beige head. Honey, vanilla, wooden and vinuous notes on the nose. Meaty honey flavors, smooth and full bodied with more vinuous notes and a pleasant alco warmth. Fantastic!

Thanks to bu11zeye for this bottle. Pours translucent copper with a transient beige head. Aroma mildly sour fruit. Near med body. Lots of wood. Some brown sugar; some heat; ripe light pitted fruits. Maybe a touch of date/raisin in the finish. Very good! Aged nicely.

Benzai (8987) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2013
Old notes, no idea from which event or tasting. Just wrote down the flavors which were winey, oak, a touch of sour. Ok, but not my favorite.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle from Keith I think. Rating #327. Clear copper pour with practically no head to speak of. Fruity aroma, grapes are the first one that comes to mind. Big and boozy with a slight fruitiness, wine and a little woody. Not bad. (2802)

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle @ Kulminator. Clearish blonde with a thick white head. Aroma is spicy, sugar, beets and apparent oxidization. Flavor is spicy yeast esters, sugary malt, citrus peel and alcohol. Medium body. Wow, not what I expected at all, the oxidization is expected for a 8 year old beer but it had a weird beet aroma that I couldn’t get past.

brystmar (1289) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Bottle at Torst.

Barely any head; poor retention. Tastes like a boozy, honey-infused barleywine. Sweet bready malt bomb, plenty of alcohol behind the flavor. Good, but not worth seeking out. Totally different from the 2010, and yet far inferior.
