PhillyCraft (5753) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2015
Sampled at The Festival, pours light brown with small sized head and lace. Sweet malts, wood, and spice were the main things being noticed. Lighter to medium body. I miss Cigar City gruit.

Gurthnar (4989) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 20, 2015
Bottle from Ottakringer shop. Hazy deep amber colour. Aroma strong strong dried fruits, raisins, toffee, light milk chocolate. Taste is likewise malt-oriented, with alcohol coming through, lots of biscuity malt and dried fruits, and minty clovish spiciness in the finish. Very good. Surprisingly easily drinkable.

jinroh (1189) - ESTONIA - MAR 27, 2014
Pours dark and black, slightly beige head. Aroma is sweet, has caramel, reminding me Estonian Christmas porter. I can say the same about the taste. Liquorice, sweet cocoa cookie-cake. Clearly many herbs, can’t even understand that hops are missing. Feels like a diluted version of Riga Balzams. Not bad but I will remember this as an "interesting experience".

Borresteijn (6371) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2014
On tap at Jopenkerk, at 10% ABV. Not sure if this should be a new entry or was just a mistake on the blackboard, although it definitely felt like 10%. Dark ruby brown to black colour, beige head. Aroma of Jopen Koyt with extra booze, so gale, star anise, liquorice mainly. Flavour is sweet, boozy, spicy, gale and liquorice, hint of peppery spice, dark fruits, herbal bitter finish. Medium-bodied, boozy. OK.

Tap at Borefts ’13, 27/09/13. Mid black with a thin tan head that dissipates edgeward. Nose is dark fruit, nail polish, boozey tones, varnish, dark malts. Taste comprises dark malt, aniseed, sugar, marzipan, dark fruits. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. It’s another gruit - yay !

Draft at BBF’13
Black. Thick tan head. Aroma and taste is mostly gruit. And I think I taste bubblegum. Smooth body, soft carbo. Looks and taste don’t match...
