gunnar (7745) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2013
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours black as Coke, no head at all. Aroma of caramel, dark fruits and lots of syrup. Taste is almost sickening sweet, bordering cloying, but lands on the tolerable side,

Sigmund (6637) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2013
355 ml bottle, vintage 2011, kindly shared by abemorsten. ABV is 12.5%. Dark brown colour, minimal head. INTENSE sweetish malty aroma, bordering on "sickly". Strong oaky notes too, hints of liquorice. Low carbonation. Very malty flavour, sweet and oaky but not extreme - however, the maltiness is not balanced by sufficient hops.

Holmen1 (4733) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2013
Flaske (2011 vintage) hos Ole Anders mai-13: herlig mørk maltaroma så det holder, med litt humle for balansens skyld. Stemningen rundt bordet er en blanding av eufori og salighet. Dette er øl i stjerneklasse. Kompleks, balansert og med en ettersmak som kommer til å vare over Bybrua.

2011 Vintage Bottle. Very sweet with flavors of raisins, plums, candied orange. Too sweet, nearly hard to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Palme (4065) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2013
0.355l bottle from Cask Pub & Kitchen, London. This is a deep dark brown one with a little bit of red in it, and it has a near non-existing thin sidesticking off-white head. On the aroma I get a nice sweetness with some smoke, ham, thin licorice and some dark fruits. It actually smells quite nice. It has a average+ carbonation level with those small prickling bubbles wrapped in a oily to sticky, full-bodied mouthfeel. It tastes of chocolate, light smoke, dark malts, booze, earth and traces of iron. A bit sweet and sticky perhaps, but the alcohol cuts through and gives it a kinda bitterness I guess. Biting and almost stingy earthy finish with traces of licorice in the aftertaste. This is my first ever beer from the legendary Kuhnhenn brewery, and I’m looking forward to my next already. 09.11.2012

lusikka (7681) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2013
355 ml bottle. 2011 vintage.
Pours a brown copper colourwithout a head. Aroma is very strong and malty with biscuit and raisins. Flavour of strong malts, lingonberries, biscuit, raisins and salty licorice. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and low carbonation. Vinous and quite complex. Malt overdose, wohoo.

laiti (8031) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2013
35,5 cl bottle vintage 2011 @ olio
Aroma is rather malty and sweet with caramel, toffee and hints of American hops. Flavour is malty and sweetish with berries, some chocolate and woody notes. Well, this is quite close to what it promises to be: a boosted doppelbock. The alcohol is rather well hidden, I expected it to come more through.

tiong (6378) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2013
355ml bottle

2011 vintage - Pours dark brown with no head. Strong malty aroma with notes of bread, rye, hints of alcohol and spices. Taste is sugary, sweet, sticky malts, hints of rye, bread and alcohol. Finish is sticky, sweet and syrupy with lots of malts and alcohol pushing through. Unbalanced, way too malty and sweet for my taste.

nimbleprop (7345) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 2, 2013
12oz bottle pours a slightly viscous, translucent copper amber with some thin, off white head. Nose of wood pulp, roasted root veg, lots of booze, bananas, rum, some mushroom, heavy malt, caramel, white whiskey. Flavor is sweet, but not cloying, some fish sauce, malty, caramel, mushroom, wood pulp, spiced rum, some pineapple upside down cake, brown sugar. Full, sweet, slightly spicy finish. I think one extra year in the bottle would be perfect or this.
