matbli (157) - Poznań, POLAND - MAY 23, 2015
Bottle 330 ml, Strong gushing after opening the bottle, but luckily the beer is not rotten. Pours very dark bown, strongly sparkling with very high and pillowy beig head that remains for a very long time. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, red fruits, red wine, cherries, oak wood and some balsamico. In taste almost perfect balance and a full body with medium sweetness, light sourness and bitterness and a bit tart finish. I’m impressed.

Swaroga (1827) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 21, 2015
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 (4980) - 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 (2911) - 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 (4052) - 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.

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.
