jc1762 (125) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 12, 2015
Poured into a teku showing big black and oily with practically no foam. The nose shows some pungent alcohol and a very faint hints of roasted but somewhat sweet (toffee/caramel) malts. The palate is very light bodied with high but unnoticeable carbonation. As the name suggests, it is very smooth and silky. Not a lot of flavor though. Very faint roasted malts with a very slight adzuki/red bean sweetness. Texture-wise it’s great but not a lot of flavor.

TET (1867) - FINLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Almost black beer with a quite big and light brown head. Aroma is very good, balanced and even sophisticated. Chocolate, balanced roastiness, some liquirice and nuts, hint of vanilla. Taste has mild roastiness, nice malty sweetness, liquirice, some chocolate, hint of riped fruits. Medium bodied, amazingly smooth and velvety to drink. Just a great porter. Complex and balanced with the velvet palate.

ogreface (1375) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 21, 2015
Mindenképpen érdekes egy sör, mivel sokkal erősebbnek tünteti fel magát, mint amilyen valójában. Igen kakaós, fás, kicsit füstös, kávés, elég sűrű ital. Olyan teste van, hogy akár imperial kategóriába is elmenne. Finom.

bartlebier (2235) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2015
Bomber courtesy of hoppin’ boris 2013, IOU, poured on and along the New Year’s bourbon vanilla and pecan ice float. Cold metal filter coffee, char, unroasted bean, autumn twigs in aroma. Taste is greatly impeded by the thin mouthfeel and noticeable carbonation, going against the eponymous silky character of this porter, but transporting instead green apple peel, some vanilla, cocoa powder, firewood char, walnut. Less than silky-smooth yet still good.
