COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Here’s Lookin’ Atcha’!"

Laying there, staring up at the ceiling, head pounding, last night was a dim recollection. How did he get home? Was he alone? Looking to the left and right, the answer was yes, maybe. His head was full of ’rag water, bitters, and the blue ruin’.His teeth felt like he’d been chewing aluminum and his breath smelled like a burning tractor tire. There was a wrenching knot somewhere between his liver and East St. Louis and he couldn’t be sure whether or not he’d wet himself. A yellow sine wave rang in his ears so loud nit made his teeth itch and he was sure that if he touched his skin anywhere it would induce a rhythmic retching jag. Even in the face of all that, he found himself smiling at the realization that today represented the fresh breast of a new year- an undiscovered country- and also there was still one warm, half-full, flat redolent Hairy Eyeball on the nightstand. Yes-there is a God.

Vignale (2994) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 26, 2016
Storflaska från SB. Mahognyfärgad med stort krämigt skum. En söt ganska jästig brygd med söta smaker av toffee, torkad frukt, russin. Ganska tjock och lite tuggig vätska. Känns inte helt lyckad eller så behöver den stå ett par år.

ansalon (2453) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - MAR 26, 2016
Pours clear amber with a large foamy off white head. Aromas of raisins, caramel, toffee, figs, rye bread. Taste is malty with fruit jam notes and malty roastiness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation and slightly oily. Some alcohol burn but nicely integrated.

Appearance: clear Ruby colour. Aroma: sweet, caramel, wine, cherry. Taste: Sweet, toffee, earthy hops, booze. Palate: good carbonation, medium body. Overall: nice beer, nothing amazing, but easily drinkable at 9%

Hopmaestro (1102) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2016
Aroma is malty and dark caramelly with darker fruits. Taste is dried sweet dark fruits, slight pine and light lemon notes. Kinda tame overall, was expectiong a little more kick in it.

Samuel214 (321) - SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2016
Flaska från SB. Provning med ölsällskapet. Mörkorange, lätt rubinröd vätska med krämigt beiget skum. Söt doft av kanderat äpple, kola, knäck, konjak, ekfat, inlagda körsbär, bourbon och kandisocker. Tung, oljig kropp. Ekfatssträv, men ändå len. Nötig lönnsirap i smaken. Perfekt dessertöl i barley wine-stuk. Mm, gott!

SvanteL (181) - SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2016
Mycket vacker djupt rödbrun färg med ett beiget medelstort skum som lägger sig snabbt. Stor maltig doft med inslag av riktigt mörka körsbär, lite apelsin, russin och kryddor. Söt, maltig smak med torkade frukter, pomerans, en liten kryddighet och på slutet växer en stor komplex beska fram och balanserar upp sötman. Munkänslan len och mjuk, lite trögflytande. En underbar strong ale dominerad av maltigheten i europeisk stil.

Beerandhockey8 (321) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - MAR 14, 2016
From 22oz bottle to snifter. Pour is a brown color, thick tan head. Nose is malty, light hop, boozy. Taste is medium bodied, bitter. Strong finish. Good ale

emusche (148) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Pours almost black with thick, sticky head, loads of clingy lacing. Aroma is toffee and caramel, slightly boozy, woody notes and hints of raisin. Taste is similar, pretty sweet from the toffee/caramel and a warming alcohol presence; chewy with a resiny mouthfeel. It’s very good.

RhetoricalAns (766) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 5, 2016
Shared bottle. Clear, deep mahogany pour, medium white head. Toffee aroma, some booziness, vanilla, fairly sweet overall. Taste came up much more bitter than expected. Full, slightly syrupy body.
