Vignale (2849) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2015
Flaska från Beernavigator. 2012 vintage. Riktgt mörkt mahognyfärg, sprakande kolsyra med en skum som lägger sig ganska fort. Söt, djup komplex doft som bärs av alkoholvärme. Katrinplommon, fikon, dadlar, marsipan, rostad mandel, portvin, bigarårer, körsbärsvin. Stor, djup och komplex doft och smak som dock dör lite väl fort. Söt, kraftfull och riktigt riktigt gott. Särskilt till en fin ost.

Russo (1957) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - SEP 6, 2015
Dark brown color with a small tan head. Aroma is woody slightly alcohol and notes of dark fruits. Taste is like aroma but a little bit more sweet, hints of plum, roasted malt and alcohol again. Low carbonation and full body with a dry sweet flavor.

BenOver (221) - SLOVENIA - SEP 4, 2015
Pours dark with medium head, aroma is very strong and resembles yeast, pungent dark character, malt. Taste is very carbonated with a sweet taste which is followed by a soir feeling leavinf yoir mouth. A good Belgium specimen.

solidfunk (6479) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 3, 2015
This is really excellent - just my style of beer. Lots of floral yeast aroma here with some coriander and tangerine. A hint of passion fruit. Light booze. Pours murky brown with decent head. Soft carbonation, sweet finish. Bottle.

Weinig smaak, bier valt enorm zwaar en na een half glas ben je er eigenlijk al klaar mee. Donker bier. Smaakt licht rokerig/koffie.

pivnizub (9727) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2015
Bottle(.75l): Deep ruby-amber coloured, presumably clear, small off-white foamy layer; caramel, dried sweet cherries with nutty traces and slight traces of alcohol; moderate sweet(cake-like) flavour, nearly full bodied; lingering sweet caramelly-fruity finish, well hidden alcohol included. Not too exciting…

Bottle@home. Small head. Dark brown. Oaky malt caramel. Red fruit notes. Sharp alcoholic blended with Woody staleness. Gentle compared to the alc vol. Fine and complex.

Beachmaster (289) - Oklahoma, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Boltle into a tulip. Pours black, with a large tan head that persists. Nose is dark fruit and caramel. Taste follows the nose. Very well-balanced, and extremely tasty. Outstanding.
