NosirIwont (2186) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2015
Bottle. 7.3%. Best before 01.05.16. Pours a cloudy/murky reddish amber/brown, with a tan head. Great lacing. Sweet, (dark) fruity aroma. Light spicy note and a roasted hint as it warms. Further warming brings out a hint of... chlorine? Same flavour, sans the chlorine, with a bitterness in the background, the latter coming out in the finish; liquorice. Lingering mild alcohol burn. Soft palate. Overall good. A wee bit cloying in the long run, but otherwise well-balanced. 24.11.15.

Dark brown color with minimal white head. Strong juniper nose with dark fruits and malts. Sweet caramel and fruity taste with nice hops bite in the end. Recommended, especially in winter! Captures the essence of winter, very nice

Mild i humlen og ikke ret meget sødme i den. Den kunne godt have været bedre i eftersmagen.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2015 WFP 2015 z kranu. Powtórka z butelki w domu. Drobna, gęsta, kremowa piana, która dłuższą chwilę pozostaje na piwie i nieznacznie oblepia szkło. Barwa rubinowa, klarowna. Aromat zdominowany przez nadgniłe, stare drewno, jałowiec i skórkę od chleba oraz suszone owoce w tle. W smaku na pierwszym planie słodkawy karmel i rodzynki, kandyzowane owoce, opiekane pieczywo z grilla czy ogniska. Wyraźna słodowość skutecznie kontrowana jest średnią, jałowcowo ziołową goryczką, która mimo, że dość ostra i lekko drażniąca, to szybko znika i zachęca do kolejnych łyków. Nagazowanie niskie, lepka, lekko oleista faktura piwa.
