Marduk (3330) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 21, 2015
330ml bottle (thanks martjoobolut). Clear copper color. Sweet, caramel, raisins, alcohol in aroma. Aroma is bit thinner than non-BA version. Caramel, raisins, roast, bit of dried apples in taste. No alcohol detected in taste. Bit sour, but omg those woody wild raisins in aftertaste. Fantastic!

330ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut
First aroma was alas pure alcohol. However, after that it’s massively raisiny, really nice. Lighter palate than non-BA, almost actually light. Malts hide behind the raisons and dried fruits. Balance is just right for a sipper. Finish has a nice ix of the dried fruits, raisins, malts, and even bitter hops. Damn good.

The_Osprey (2580) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2015
330ml bottled Jan 2013 at 15.2%, red wax. Dark brown, orange tinge, still, clear, small white head. Aroma is sickly strawberry jam, oxidation, sherry. Body is medium, touch of carbonation, slightly foamy, tooth-coating sugar. Taste is very sweet, strawberry jam, caramel, strawberry cream chocolates, no alcohol coming through at all. HUGE sweet beer. Nice flavours, but way too sweet. If you like eating strawberry jam from a spoon, with sugar sprinkled on top, then you’ll love this one.

Maakun (1081) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2015
Tap at Kaapse brouwers. Dark copper with barely any head. Yoghurt, sweet grains and dough, cognac, spices, marzipan, cooked vegetables. Sweet with light milky sour and vegetal bitter finish. Full bodied.

teorn88 (3489) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2015
33cl waxed bottle. It pours a deep ruby almost brown color with a minimal tan head. Aroma is sweet and lightly roasty with notes of dark chocolate, red wine, wild berries, red fruit marmalade. Taste is big bold juicy and extremely sweet and tasty. Bi notes of red wine, ripe fruits, tangy red berries, marmalade, chocolate sponge and light liqueur. Not boozy, hides the ABV very well. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, big bold bastard of a beer, me like it

Huhzubendah (2795) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Thanks Brad! Orange / copper body with an off-white head. Aromas of cotton candy, orange, butterscotch, alcohol. Sweet, boozy. Elegance emerges mid to late palate with a smooth finish. Still, too sweet and unabashed. Fruity elixir.
