ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 24, 2011
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a hazy rust-colored body with a medium off-white head. Nose is toffee and licorice tones, with hints of pine, grass and caramel. Taste is fuzzy, grassy hops up front; then the beer mellows down on the palate with lots of licorice, pine and cough medicinal tones before a finishing off with a tight, near-astringent bitterness. A bit rough, perhaps a bit of cellaring would smoothen things up? Anyway, a pretty decent ESA from De Molen.

gunnar (5097) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2011
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Pours hazy deep amber with a big creamy off-white head. Aroma of yeast, toffee and wood. Taste is moderate sweet toffee and malts, piney hops underneath. Lingering dark liquorice at the end.Good for sure.

abemorsten (2591) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2011
33 cl bottle from Vika Vinmonopol. Muddy, murky orange with a gelatinous, beige head, three fingers thick. Good lacing. Caramel malty and floral nose with hints of old wooden cupboard. Full bodied and boozy, bitter and biscuit sweet. Grows a little in the mouth with a thick, foamy mouth feel. Long and pleasantly bitter finish.

_angst_ (2559) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2012
330 ml bottle bought @ Bierzwerg.de. Pours hazy amber with a big frothy off-white head that clings to the glass and leaves some lacing on it while slowly dissipating. Smell is sweet with sweet fruits like plums and raisins, caramel, alcohol and some hints of peaches and citrus. Taste is malty, bitter and slightly metallic with minerals, resin, dandelions and pine. Finish is dry and very bitter. Weird one this one, not sure what I think…

BobEvers (266) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2012
Fles 33cl Kleur: amber (niet helder) met een enorme gebroken witte schuimkraag. Geur: Zoet, fruit, grapefruit, kruiden Smaak: Voornamelijk kruidig, mout en hop. Ergens is licht zoet fruit proefbaar. De nasmaak is scherp/pittig en blijft lang plakken. Veel koolzuur.

tmrmwel (854) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2012
Bottle. Pours amber, with a solid head that rather quickly recedes to lacing. A very malt accentuated brew, with a good roasted malty aroma. Flavour follows suit with caramel and roasted malts, and good notes of nuts and dark fruits that continues through the finish.

TET (1544) - FINLAND - APR 27, 2012
A dark brown beer with a big, lasting and beige head. Aroma is caramelly and sweet, berries, strawberries, "wet wood", surprisingly "berryjuice" like aroma. Taste is toffeeish and malty, sweet berries, after beginning taste turns into dryer and wooden hoppyness takes place, dark fruits, aftertaste is tight and slightly biting. Medium+ bodied, nice and style like drinkability. Aftertaste isn’t very nice, otherwise, berry, quite unique and interesting beer.

SlovakSniper (3013) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2012
Molenbier (33 cl, Embouteillée le 23/06/2011. Une dégustation offerte par rodenbach99) La surprise de la soirée. Une belle robe ambrée et sa mousse durable. Une belle dentelle. Un conditionnement satisfaisant. Un beau nez de caramel et de houblons, une touche fruitée qui provient de la levure? Des saveurs caramélisées qui sont stimulées par des houblons au profil herbeux. Une bonne sensation en bouche. Un corps, des bulles et une texture bien enlignés. Une finale davantage maltée que houblonnée. Simplement agréable.
