Palme (3603) - 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 (7621) - 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 (7742) - 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 (5393) - 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 (6317) - 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.

IPA_PAL (7) - New York, USA - FEB 17, 2013 does not count
bottle at spuytin duyvil - back to back with the braggott. darker brown pour with close to a plum hue. again little carbonation but bubbles on the tongue. no lacing or head and grafter flavor with warmth. increased malts from the braggott and smoother notes of caramel, brown sugar, and tobacco. palate is dry with a sweet oily lasting finish. this is a great beer and again an awesome compliment to a pipe smoke. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jrgratz (113) - New York, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Bottle at spuyten duyvil.. This place is epic.. Pour is the exact same at the braggot.. Wait a minute.. They collaborated with the same fella for both.. Pour is the same no head dark dark red brown. Aroma is more malt than the braggot with some sweet booze and dark fruit. Taste is dark fruit.. Raisins, toffee with some sweet honey and malts. Mouthfeel is viscous and boozy finish lingers., unbelievable back to back with the kuhnhenn braggot.. Clearly the same creation with more malt and more wood.. Genius.. I may need to leave at this point.. A nice 12.5

Dashimus (226) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours reddy brown with no head. Aroma is a sticky syrup with hot toddy essence. Flavour is spicy whiskey with a warm alcohol feel. Liquid isn’t very viscous. Taste is more bourbon than scotch.

superspak (3746) - Michigan, USA - FEB 6, 2013
12 ounce bottle into signature tulip glass, Winter 2011 vintage. Pours hazy very dark reddish brown color with a small foamy khaki head with poor retention, that reduces to a ring of lace instantly. Ni glass lacing, and a fair amount of alcohol legs. Aromas of huge raisin, prune, caramel, toffee, molasses, toast, licorice, dark bread, earth, light nuttiness, wood, and light bourbon. Damn nice aromas with good balance, strength, and complexity of malty flavors. Taste of big raisin, prune, dried fruit skin, licorice, toffee, molasses, caramel, toast, dark bread, leather, light nuttiness, wood, light bourbon, and earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark fruits, toffee, molasses, caramel, toast, dark bread, leather, light nuttiness, wood, earth, and light bourbon on the finish for a while. Damn nice balance and complexity of malty flavors; with almost zero cloying sweetness present on the finish. Light carbonation and very full bodied; with a creamy, slick, and lightly syrupy mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent imperial bock style. Great balance and complexity of malt flavors; and quite smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
