Scauca (490) - Lovere, - JAN 26, 2011
Thanks to Andrè. Pours dark amber with a vanishing beige head. Aroma is definitely sweet, too sweet, and nutty. Flavourwise it sucks. Nothing to add. Not my beer.

Xavalias (48) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle from Magasin, DK. Pours dark cloudy brown with an uneven beige head that quickly disappears. Aroma is caramel, chocolate, raisin, ripe fruits. Very sweet, low bitterness, with a long-lasting malty finish of strawberry syrup. After a minute or so all the bitterness is gone and all that remains is strawberry syrup. Interesting.

PapaVillum (390) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 4, 2014
50 cl, flaske, 7,3 % ABV, købt i Frederiks Villa i Faxe Ladeplads, 5. juli 2014. Mahogni-farvet finsk krydret Ale med orange nuancer i modlys. Lille offwhite skumkrone på max. 1 cm. Ufiltreret. Aroma af staldgulv, tobak, gær, brændt malt, læder, noget indelukket-aroma, men alligevel helt særligt. God, fyldig og krydret smag. Meget velafbalanceret. Starter lettere sødt og bittert og senere i billedet kommer krydderierne. God humlebitter eftersmag. Frisk mundfølelse - medium niveau af kuldioxid. Speciel og god!

Defreni (2463) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2014
Flaske: Mudre brun let diset farve med et flot skumhoved. Duften er kraftig maltet med en smule sukker. Smagen er meget maltet men stadig godt frisk grundet en fin humling. Fin øl men ikke til at falde i svime over.
