seritomi (359) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 14, 2012
Csapolva ittam. A színe zavaros bronz jellegű. 0 hab, 0 szénsav. Nem szép... Illata erősen szeszes ebből adódóan édes, valamint gyümölcsös és kellemes. A folyadék tompa, olajos és sűrű. Csípős (talán a tölgyhordó miatt), édes. Felfedezhető benne a nem harsány konyakos, aszus utóíz. Furcsa vagy nem de én konkrétan a gomba aromáját is éreztem. Gyógynövényt viszont alig-alig. Van még itt méz és közepes adag komló. Sokat hallottam róla és többet is vártam. De nem olyan nagy szám.

jonas (6858) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 5, 2012
Bottle, danke Günther. Sweet cherrylike aroma with christmassy spicy notes, wooden and light metallic spruce notes following as it warms - not entirely harmonic. Cloudy red brown, low head. Sour cherry entry, vineous oak notes, caramel, berries, vanilla, pipe tobacco, herbal finish. Fullbodied, sweet body, lightly carbonated, almost sticky. Quite interesting, starts a bit muddled, but flavors mesh after it warms up and breathes a bit - in the end it is almost a full fruity red wine.

bartlebier (3496) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 14, 2013
33cl fliptop, thanks to Cuso for including this interesting specimen. Pours an unctuous deep red wine-acajou and shares more vinuous qualities with the Tokaji it has shared a barrel with. Nuts, figs and raisins reminiscent of an (aged) Belgian strong ale, mouthfeel and unctuous richness of a barley wine. not immediately apparent 10,5%, the "old"/stale feel still makes this more of a sipper. Well done, but not my cup of tea since too reminiscent of some of the said heavy Belgians I’d like to keep steering clear of.

pivnizub (10179) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 19, 2013
2 Bottles (0.33l: diky, Cuso!; 1.0l #657, diky, pane Stehliček! [Prvni Pivni Tramvaj v Praze]):Hazy, reddish-amber coloured, small off-white to yellowish head, dried fruits, port-wine and some herbs in the sweet nose, some oaky flavours, too; solid sweet flavour with a little tartness, full bodied and a bit sticky; sweet vinous finish with a slight alcohol-burn and a tinge of vanilla and tannic acid in the aftertaste. Very good pivo, unfortunately absolutely not my favourite...

laiti (8081) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2013
33 bottle @ PBF VIII
Aroma is rather malty with some woody notes. Flavour is rather malty with strong herbal tones and peppery notes. Like a doppelbock with spices and chili added. Interesting.
