magdalar (513) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAY 13, 2012
Bottle at Fermentoren. Pours a hazy brown with an offwhite head. Smells of caramel, brown sugar, white wine, spices. Tastes of a heavy sweetness, mild tart, some acidity, mild bitter. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, syrupy texture. The initial taste was much stronger on the white wine, esp compared to the dregs of #4 I had just finished. Mouthfeel is still quite white wine.

Geiserich (3106) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - SEP 28, 2012
Bottle: Off-white creamy head, amber hazy color. Oaky aroma, notes of grapes, smoke, whiskey, brandy, caramel, sugar. Flavor has also a lot of whiskey/brandy notes, barrels, sugar, wine. Dyr, astringent finish. Nice.

Abio (1519) - Waasland, BELGIUM - SEP 8, 2013
Wood at the taste for sure, slightly spiced and boozed. Slightly aged bottle, this will affect it a bit probably. Dark amber couloured brew that looks like brown in the glass. A nice, mostly sweet, beer, not bad at all.

GothGargoyle (945) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 30, 2011
Comes in a 375ml bottle with a cork and cage. The cork was plastic and I had some difficulty getting it out! Pours a murky brown with little head. The oak is quite present in the aroma, along with a little of the white wine, plus vanilla and brown sugar. There’s a good level of carbonation and a slightly creamy texture to it. The taste is of caramel, crisp white wine (perhaps Sauvignon Blanc), spices. Quite a unique beer.
