kermis (8490) - The Hague, - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle shared with Deanso. Pours hazy amber with an off white head. Aroma is sweet malt, vinous, fruity. Flavour seems a touch sour and moderate sweet. Not sure if this bottle may be off, according to Deanso it’s different than one tried previously. Seems like white wine barrel aged but don’t know from the bottle. Certainly not what I expected.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’ place, thanks DSG. Cloudy amber-orange and headless. Sweet oranges, then candy, then hints of malt and some nutella in the nose, fruity, rich malt and nuts taste. Full body, carbonated, mouthful fruity finish.

sjogro (1572) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2015
Oh boy. Yoghurt, doughy, touch of sour fruit, some spices and wood. Sweetness overrules the sour start. Backlog from 2014/10/18.

tomer (2523) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 28, 2015
At a tasting, thanks, smallish head, murky earthy orange color, aroma of wax, cake, ripe fruits and vanila woodiness, strong vanila traits, strong fruity sourness, spicy cake and some chocolate in the back, light but evident bitterness. Intriguing.

BlazerT (357) - POLAND - NOV 11, 2015
Botrle. Teku. Deep amber/light brown, little hazy with tiny, light brown head. Poor head retention and lacing. At first nice, vanilla and barrel notes - just like good, old bourbon. In the second raw nice aromas - mainly caramel, little toffee. Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, finish is semi-sweet, little alcohol warming. In overall medium malty packed barley wine with lots of bourbon aromas.

radzik5555 (635) - Gdynia, POLAND - NOV 4, 2015
Butelka 0.33L.
Wygląd: Ciemnopomarańczowe, lekko mętne, piana od razu znika.
Aromat: Intensywny, beczka, owoce, melon, truskawki, świeże śliwki, czerwone jabłko.
Odczucie: Średnie wysycenie, ciało wysokie.
Smak: Intensywnie słodkie, decha, śliwka, alkohol wyczuwalny, truskawki, jabłka. Goryczka niska.
Całość: Ciekawe, bardzo intensywne ale sprawia wrażenie lekko sztucznego, plastikowego.

angel77 (1916) - oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 17, 2015
Botella 33 cl tomada en el momento en Oviedo 17..10..2015. (r220). Embotellada 24..06..2013 por 10 años. Color rojizo turbio con espuma beige poco persistente. Aromas maltosos y caramelos tostados dulces con toques de maderas y licores. Sabores también maltosos dulces caramelizados y algunas frutas pasas y gran sensación de maderas secas empanadas en licores acabando con un suave amargo seco no muy intenso. Bastante buena, sabores intensos y buena sensación alcohólica. Para repetir sin duda.

bhensonb (13219) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle from Cave a Bulles. Pours light copper with no head. Aroma of warm brown sugar. Neaar full bodied. Flavor is brown sugar, There’s something like dried stone fruits, and there is a subtle bourbon aspect. Not really getting any oak astringency tho. Fruit and bourbon seem to dominate the finish. Quite a nice sipper.
