Douberd (3701) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2014
(De Molen Bar & Boos) Bottle 330 ml at home, filled to the top. Poured into a small snifter, ABV 10.6% Dark brown in colour, no head formed except some bi bubbles, tan in colour, lasting for quite long on the surface actually. Minimal lacing left behind. Aroma of vanilla, wood, alcohol, glue, blackberries, hints of smoke, dark fruits. Taste of bourbon, roasted malts, liquorice, again hints of smoke, fruity notes of dark fruits, mostly prunes, figs, the alcohol slightly notable, a bit of vanilla. A bit weak on the body, medium thin I’d say, good carbonation for the style. Nice imp.

Deep black with ruby highlights and a decent beige head. Aroma is caramel, lightly roasted malts, liquorice, cola, fig, hint of smoke and leather, blackcurrant. Creamy mouthfeel, full bodied, sweet and roasty on the palate with a warming, slightly woody finish. Taste is dates, raisins, figs, caramel, vanilla, subtle hints of wood and smooth bourbon. Absolutely delicious

tricksta_p (2409) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2014
Aroma of roasted malts, bourbon, oak, sweet vanilla, berries, brown sugar, some chocolate. Flavour is quite sweet, syrupy and vanilla. This is a Barleywine. Being more of a fan of Imperial Stouts than Barleywines, I was a little disappointed with this one.

Skinnyviking (8073) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 23, 2014
Bottle at home. Low but lasting creamy light brown head. Hazy very dark brown body. Astonishingly sour roasted malt spicy whisky aroma. Alcohol dominated coffee whisky flavor with low carbonation and a good deal of bitterness as well. Long alcohol finish. Alcohol too dominant. Storage would undoubtely do this beer good.

skortila (4914) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2014
Bottled. Full 33cl sample. The aroma has roast, dried dark fruitiness, bourbon. Dark brown/black coloured beer with a thin head. The taste is moderate bitter, has some sweetness and some funky tones. Unsure if they were intended but they did suit the beer well. There is roast, bourbon, dried fruits mainly. Enjoyable.
