Cirrhosis (1195) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 15, 2013
Cola brown, thin sickly bubble ring clings to the glass. Toasted marshmallows, very sweet, soya sauce shining through, and the aroma rounds off with the smell of the Safeway frozen juice freezer. Taste is mild for what this is, but still its a punch to the face. Prunes, soya, burnt sugar, almost but not a red wine. Sweetness builds but stays in control. Beer gets better and better the longer it sits. I drank this beer that is all.

thewolf (11127) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2013
Bottle, bought @ Řlbutikken, Cph. Pours clear chestnut with a small, staying, creamy beige film head. Aroma is lovely, oak, tobacco leaves, caramel, soft chocolate, apple. It is sweet, elegant, figs, vinious. Very, very good.

olio (5896) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 2, 2013
33 cl bottle.
Pours dark mahogany red color with a small head. Aroma is sweet with dark fruits, lots of caramel malts, some brown sugar and toffee, faint resinous hops also. Very sweet plum and raisins on the flavor, caramel malts, toffee, wood, some plums and raisin with a hint of vanilla at the end. Alcohol is very well evened out with the sweet fruits and caramel. Soft carbonation, complex and heavy malty body with a sweet lingering finish. Very tasty slow sipper, not as brilliant as the Back Room was though.

GBZ59 (1094) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - OCT 27, 2013
Una gran cerveza; pero, para aquellos que conocemos bien el Vino de Málaga, no resulta tan espectacular. Ya que la mayor parte de este buen trabajo es obra del envejecimiento en barrica. Botella de 330ml. Copa de Vino. Color marrón muy oscuro, con tintes ámbar oscuro a contraluz. Espuma beige y corona fugaz. Aromas de uvas pasas, maltas caramelo y tostadas, dulces de caramelo, ciruelas maduras y dátiles, con notas de madera madura en el fondo. Sabores de maltas dulces tostadas, azucarados, uvas pasas y trazos de melazas. Cuerpo pleno y carbonatación suave. Textura viscosa y paladar sedoso. El bajo amargor herbáceo del intermedio queda barrido por intensos sabores de Vino de Málaga redondeado por notas subyacentes de dulce de regaliz y un sabor azucarado, no empalagoso, fruto de las uvas, hierbas y especias. El ABV queda bien enmascarado y se percibe como una agradable y cálida sensación. Leve astringencia áspera. Final dulce y prolongado. Fruta madura y caramelizada en el retrogusto. Big beer but for those who well know Malaga Wine, it´s not as big as it seems to be. Since Barrel aged has made major part of this good job. 330ml bottle. Wine glass. Very dark brown color, dark amber tints to the light. Beige froth, brief crown. Aromas of raisin, toasted caramel malts, candies, ripe plums & dats, as well as matured wood on the back. Sweet toasted malt, Malaga Wine, intense raisin, sugar flavors & hints of molasses. Full body. Soft carbonation. Oily texture & silky palate. Low herbal bitterness in the middle is overwhelmed by intense Malaga flavor rounded by underlying licorice candy notes. No-cloying sugary flavor made from raisins, herbs & spices. ABV is well hidden & shown as a kind warming feel. Slight harsh astringency. Long sweet finish. Ripe & caramelized fruits on the aftertaste.

lusikka (5996) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a small white head. Aroma of toasted malts, biscuit, wood and strong herbal notes. Rich flavour of strong herbs, biscuit, oak, alcohol, raisins and residual sugar. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and a warming alcohol finish with loads and loads of herbal notes. I liked the port version a lot more than this.
