sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 18, 2011
18cl bottle, #1775/2040 from DeMolen beer shop. Brune foncée, dorée et moka, aspect huileux collant sur le verre. Arôme de bourbon et Bordeaux laissant des notes fruitées de vin avec en retrait une bonne note de malt. En bouche; bière épaisse, malt avec une présence fruité allant sur un vin cuit laissant des notes fraîches de Bordeaux ainsi une vaille de Bourbon, le tout se mélangeant avec un profile boisé, chocolat, grillé. Agréable de voir comment le mélange des deux laisse ample place à l’un comme l’autre pour briller et offrir du tout bon pour le palais. Un régal.

Benzai (14262) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2011
Pitch black color with a large beige head. Smell a little coffee and roastyness, plus wood. Very nice smooth soft taste, light bitter finish. Very good medium to full body, alcohol very well hidden, soft smooth carbonation. Very good beer indeed!

18 cl bottle. #1362: brewed 16.12.09, bottled 19.05.10, BBE 19.05.10
Very pleasant aroma has whiskey, vanilla and hints of roasted malt behind those. Reminds me of Närke Kaggen. Flavour has a bit too sharp whiskey, some wood and vanilla. A good one, at least for a whiskey lover like me.

SirLimpsalot (3812) - SWEDEN - JUN 8, 2011
Hade en ganska stor och mycket vinös doft. Lite halvtjock vätska med tydliga innslag av lakrits och trevliga brända toner. Eftersmaken lång och fin. Trots att det är en ganska tung öltyp så slinker den ned ganska lätt.

yngwie (16517) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2011
Bottle, #937. A black beer topped by a medium sized, creamy, light tan head. Boozy, vinous and roasted nose with some oak hints. Oak, roasted malts, chocolate and coffee in the vinous flavor. Warming and full-bodied in the mouth, but it could use more carbonation. Overall, a nice beer indeed, but a bit too much oaked for my likings. A beer worth repeating. 110107
