Jultsu (389) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2015
BBE 05-2015. Tummanmustanpunainen väri, maan tuoksu jossa ripaus maustetta (pippuri?) ja alkoholia. Maku jatkaa samoilla linjoilla, alkoholia lievästi ensipuraisussa ja maustetta, jälkimaku hivenen väljähtäneempi mutta jonkinlainen runko löytyy. Liekö ollut parempaa tuoreempana?

FatPhil (11817) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 29, 2015
330ml bottle (Koht Spring Auction, Tallinn)
Pleasant red, brief frothy head. Sour and sweet malty aroma, had a hint of flemish red briefly. Dirty rough and raw sweet mashy aroma some mammi, but also quite sour. Sticky and a bit slick palate. Fortunately the sourness fades after a few sips, so you can ignore it. Very uninspiring belgian strong dark ale, but it does cover the alcohol quite well, so an extra point for that.

chromeotaphor (115) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2015
Caramel donker suiker achtig aroma. Prachtig rood bruinig donker van kleur, erg helder troebel (ruwe stukken). Peperachtige bite bij binnenkomst en afdronk, lichte zuring. Mooi eenvoudig maar toch diepgaand palet.
