Bottle trade with wavers1. Terry, you’re a God, and probably my favorite trading partner. Thank you. This beer is God-damn incredible. Color is a brown-black with ruby highlights and no head. Nose is rife with port, plum, strawberry, unbelievable malts, great character from the wood (which itself was imported from Elven Country) and a very vinous, ephemeral character. Flavor is the fruit and wood mentioned above, topped off with a beautiful dark grape old port character that is just absurd. Like a chocolatey, brandy-soaked Alexander the Grape. Just unbelievably balanced and possibly the best wood-aged beer I have ever had.

olsvammel (3885) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2015
Bottle at a big tasting (Nördprovning 2015). Malty smell with dried fruit and raisins. Similar taste. Very complex with lots of flavour, but not all over the place. Well rounded.

LaViolette (115) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 26, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2015 A very interesting beer. The colour is beautiful, the nose is wonderful, full of chocolate and raspberry. It’s a strong beer but well balanced. My only issue is I found it too sweet for my taste.

Habanero (3045) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2014
Bottled. Pours pitch black, opaque with a little, creamy and tan head leaving some good lacings. Aroma of roasted malts with smokey notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry. Full bodied, creamy texture and flat to soft carbonation. An excellent brew.

TheCametron (1963) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle brought over by Ben on the great Prague excursion. 25cl number much like the one in the picture. Pours Black with a dissipating Tan coloured head. A massive beer with customary roasty chocolate notes. Soaked in alcohol and with an extremely well measured dose of wood. A bit of vanilla. Thick, rich and satisfying. Delicious.

From old tasting notes - Near black with flat head. Sweet woody vanilla fruity aroma. Roasty fruity chocolate and vanilla. Soft carbo. Excellent.

Bottle. Black with tan head that fades. Aroma of licorice, chocolate, wood, boozy lliqueurs. Taste of roasty chocolate, molasses and wood. Thick and sweet. Nice

kappldav123 (5339) - GERMANY - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle 18cl, nice label. Looks good. Beer in the glass deep black, small head. Heavy malty aroma. Starts strong, a bit alcoholic, more and more malty-earthy, notes of coffee and bitter chocolate. Finish warming-malty. Good one!
