Great balance and flavor. The beer is surprising. I didn’t expect so much wood, toffee, burned caramel, dark fruits like blackcurrant, grapes and some cheese. Flavor is medium sweet with chocolate and spices in the background. Some little acidity of fruits. Perfect balance between. Each sip has several layers. Well done.

Hermod (3952) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2015
33cl bottle, reads oak aged in red on label. No date. Pours near black with a huge light brown head, gusher! Strong anise, fennel aroma, ripe berries, oak, mild tartness alongside brown sugary sweetness. Flavor has sour red berries, (like lingonberries) , oak, tartness, licorice. Dry finish. Alcohol warmth. I so like the sour berry thing here. Hides the sweetness nicely. Very different from the original version. Oud bruinish.

minutemat (2252) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2015
330ml bottle, many thanks to JefVerstraete! Pours black / extremely dark brown with a bountiful foamy tan head. Aroma is slightly herbal and a touch sugary. Taste is espresso, plums, chocolate, raw liquorice, sugary marzipan and a noticeable vinous sour influence. Overly high carbonation. In all, taste seems a bit disjointed but not bad.

Vaiz (3740) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 18, 2015
Bottle at home. Not entirely sure, but presumably this version. Black pour, slight gusher. Aroma has balsamic vinegar, tannine, roasted malts, some ripe fruits and quite spicy. Flavor is bitter, roasted, slightly sour, smooth and with a very decent body. Quite lively carbonation.

WaW (17) - BELGIUM - MAR 10, 2015
Great evolution in flavour compared to the non BA. Funky, fruity and lightly sour flavour is added by the barrel aging. Hints of chocolate. Definitely not bad. Very smooth also, given the 10% ABV.

DwarfeD (1479) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2015
33cl bottle at home. Dark brown with almost no head. Full body with low to moderate carbonation. Quite sour with some bitter tones. Ripe cherries, vinegar, caramel, spices and herbs. A tasty sour BA brew.

gEUS (1388) - Linden, BELGIUM - JAN 4, 2015
330 ml bottle shared by my brother in law. Pours dark reddish brown with a small light marroon head. Nive wine and wine vinegar aromas, burnt malts and dark forest fruits. Medium body high on the roast and bitterness. Nice oak flavours, a bit single sided though.

Countbeer (5098) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: I have no idea if this the right entry, but I taste no whiskey... So I think it should be this one... Exploding beige light brown head. Dark brown to black ish brown colored beer. Aroma of anise, grapes, wood, yeast, hint of bay leaf, some hop/flower ish tones... Flavours of grapes, hoos, wood, light tart, light bitter, light spice and toast tones. Aftertaste is a mix of grapes, wood, light tart, anise and a hint of liquorice. Low carbo, light watery mouthfeel and more than medium bodied. Quite an easy drinker for 10%ABV!

Bottle at the Pozarevac tasting without Matt (Matt, come back!). Pours black, light with brown consistent foamy head. Nose: leather, mild vinegar background, pleasant sourness. Mouth: complex acetic feel, dusty. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
