androman (1799) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2016
ABV 8.5%, expired 18 months ago. 33cl bottle at home from De Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Nose is cherry, molasses. Body is hazy dark brown, head is big, beige, frothy, average lasting, good lacing. Aroma is milk chocolate, cherry, molasses, chocolate liquor, perfume, brown sugar. Medium to heavy sweet, light bitter, light fruity sour. Finish is medium lasting fruity medium bittersweet, light fruity alcohol sour, light alcohol warmth. Full body, oily texture, average carbonation. A bit heavy, bit too sweet for me, too much alcohol flavor for this ABV, still tasty, interesting, still enjoyable after long expiration, nice one.

mariuspoenari (1535) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2016
33cl bottle. Dark ruby pour with a tall, fine-grained beige head that gives way to a sticky lacing. Smells like bourbon barrel, caramel, hazelnuts, dried fruit, strawberry jam and other sweet flavors. The taste follows the same notes, with some additional ones that are quite dominant of the taste notes - milk chocolate, cappuccino and toffee. Surprisingly compex, and all the components go very well together. Medium body with low carbonation and soft mouthfeel.

thanatosti (1481) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2013
75 cl. bottle @ Rick, bottle shared by Ivo. Amber with a white head. Aroma is sweetish with orange and some malts. Taste is rather on the sweet side but with enough bitterness. That this beer is old, brewed in 2011, is maybe the cause of this sweetness but other than that the taste is really good. Well concealed alcohol.

hopbel (19) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2013
Een grapefruit die aan het paren is met een onrijpe meloen. Sex-luchtje dus. De smaak is marmelade-sherry achtig. Staat me een beetje tegen op het moment hoewel ik gek ben op sex, marmelade, sherry en bier.

GSAP (693) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 27, 2013
75cl fles, 9,2%. Aroma van vers fruit, sinaasappelsap, suikerwater en licht kruidig. Smaak is wat dieper zoet, scherpte wat tegen gaat staan, fijne afdronk, licht bitter. Bier groeit niet tijdens drinken.
