tdtm82 (1010) - Essex, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2015
33cl bottle; a present from my elusive beer fairy. Poured opaque with beige lacing around the rim of the glass from a complete cover. Aroma is high on peated malt; whisky; chocolate; tobacco; cigar ash; aged leather (madmitch76’s jacket to be precise) and blackcurrants. Taste is blackcurrants; mixed berries. whisky, peated malt, some smokey malt, ash, leather, dark chocolate, Belgian truffles, some clove and mocha coffee. It’s incredibly drinkable for the abv. A perfect example of what to do with barrel-aging. Super!

uckelman (363) - Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Pours black with a thin layer of tan head. Aroma is powerfully sour. Quite a pucker on this one. Full body. Dry, ashy, mildly smoky finish. Not much burn initially for how high ABV it is.

sarauckelman (247) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Dark and thick with minimal dark tan head. Amazing sour aroma. Taste is incredibly complex: going from molasses to sour to roasted malts to smoke to ash, and the mouthfeel goes from syrupy to dry. This is superb.

Fin (8177) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2015
Bottle from somewhere in the Netherlands I guess, consumed at home Sunday 18th January 2015 Black in colour but you can still detect a slight murkiness, pours with a tan head. Slight balsamic vinegar tartness on nose which sort of translates into mouth but with a fruity sour cherry edge in mouth and tart bramble also with some oakiness. This tart fruity edge combines well with the light chocolate, coffee and vanilla notes picked up from the base beer. Loved it. A7 A4 T9 P4 Ov17 4.1

kerenmk (3089) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at our place. Thanks DSG. Very dark brown. Slightly salty, ink, vinous aroma, salt, a little tarty, then woodsy taste. Smooth texture, no carbonation, a little salty finish.

DSG (8175) - Tel Aviv, - JAN 8, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Black with a nice tan head. Lovely sourish and roasty aroma with chocolate, cherries and a light smoky note. Sourish flavor with chocolate, oak, mild vinegar, nice fruitiness, a smoky touch and a bone-dry finish. Quite full-bodied, rounded mouthfeel. Very good and well-balanced.

RexTalionis (2963) - FINLAND - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle. Pours black in color with a tan head. Oak wooden notes, bitter dark chcolate and coffee mixed with slighyly sour notes. The cellar touch is present too with some hints of fruityness. Roasted and fruity sour notes in taste at first, light barnyard too. Dark chocolate, some sour and spicy notes in aftertaste. Quite drinkable one here.
