Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2014
A pitch black colored beer, with a small beige head. The aroma of vanilla, wood, some chocolat and alcohol notes. The taste is full of flavors, like the vanilla, wood, dark roasted malt and alcohol. The aftertaste stays for a long time in your mouth with at last the burning alcohol. Beautiful beer.

skoisirius (1715) - Earth, Washington, USA - SEP 13, 2014
11.2oz bottle. Guess this is semi-officially my first from Närke finally. Was just thinking about what that smelled like...a big barleywine! YUM. Plummy and raisiny nose with hints of sweet roast and Belgisugars. More dark fruits up front which moves into a lot of burnt apple, a hint of smoke and booze, with a sweet barleywine finish that’s sugary. Thick! DANK.

erickok (3533) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - AUG 31, 2014
Black bodied, stable small head. Vanilla, wood, tobacco, Belgian yeast sourdough bread. But that’s only the beginning. Huge taste, concentrated, smooth dark malts, almost yoghurt mouth feel. Unctuous, sticky, rich. A fine, fine beer to celebrate my 3500th rating! (33cl bottle from SpeciaalBierPakket I belief)

Bottle at Paradiso Dupont. Hazy maroon amber color, flat. Big vanilla, bourbon, burnt caramel aroma. Taste is strong vanilla and caramel candy, light spice. Complex and delicious.

fletchfighters (1077) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2014
330 ML bottle Thanks to Jeffo and Owen for this Dark mahogany color, bottle filled to the top. Thank you De Molen. Light brown head, one finger in height. Yay, carbonation. Massive bourbon and dark fruit nose. Figs, dates, dark cherries, and brown sugar. Lots of booze in the nose. Taste is like the nose. Lots of booze, bourbon, oak, and dark fruits. Low carbonation and big feel. Rich and chewy beer. Nice though

Patrickctenchi (3658) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle: Dark, cloudy brown with a tan ring. Caramel, raisin, vanilla malt aroma. Flavour is surprisingly tart (at first sip) chocolate/whiskey/wood.... dark fruits, molasses. Boozy, creamy and dark. Flat, but thick...dark woody bitter. Excellent.....but ridiculously priced.
