mikkos (306) - FINLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Dark ruby with a cremy head, long lasting. Aroma is fruity sweet caramel malts, toffeeish, cognac, with a hint of alcohol. Taste is ripe fruits, sweet malts, raisin, warming and quite wintery indeed. Smooth mouthfeel, a bit short finish with no real bitterness. Warming alcohol. Nothing special, but still rather pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

teddybeer (3104) - Kaunas, LITHUANIA - JAN 2, 2014
Coppery colour with an off-white head that quickly dissapears. Aroma has notes of caramel, molasses and raisins Flavor is moderate sweet with a good presence of alcohol, notes of molasses, raisins, red fruits, good maltiness. The final is slightly alcoholic with light sweet notes. Desnse and smooth on palate.

BitchPls (687) - FINLAND - JAN 24, 2014
Light brown, bubbly beer with a brief beige head. Bread and earthiness on the nose. Coffee, bread, raisin, a bit dry but has a this caramelised sweetness in it. A mix of slight bitterness and sourness. Crispy carbonation. Medium body. Refreshingly different in my opinion and the sourness is in good amounts. I like this.

Beertobealive (390) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 5, 2014
Short beige head. Light yellow berries aroma. Dark opaque copper body. Very little hop or malt in the taste, but a nice balance with light bitterness and average warmth. Pleasant after all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

IPAgutten79 (844) - Skui, NORWAY - MAR 11, 2014
Brunlig med lite skum. Aroma av malt, rosiner og annen tørket frukt, gjær og kanskje litt karamell? Smaken er søtlig malt og så mildt bitter, med innslag av tørket frukt, karamell og alkohol. Medium/tykk konsistens. Ok mild bitterhet i ettersmaken.

Mikon kanssa Pyöräkadulla. Not exactly my cup of beer, quite nice ale still, sweet and malty in a drinkable way.

nihtila (2303) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2015
24.1.2014. Kuohui pullosta ulos! Tuoksussa karamellista mallasta, rusinaa ja pihkaa. Maku on melko makea, kypsää hedelmää, rusinaa, hentoa yrttisyyttä. Makeutta on hieman liikaa, mikä tuntuu varsinkin jälkimaussa.

caesar (6180) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2015
Bottle from Biernavigatie, BB Summer 2016, large sample. Cloudy brown color, short frothy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, spicy yeast, raisin, slight fruity. The raisins make it smell like an aged belgian dark, although it’s not aged at all, seeing the BB date. Slight sweet in taste, lots of raisin again. Aroma is a bit more complex, but flavor is all about raisins. Interesting stuff, though a bit one-dimensional.

Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Pretty hazy reddish color, small off-white head that diminishes quickly. Aroma is malts, sweetness, lightly alcohol and some sugar. Taste malts, sweetness, molasses, raisins, sugar, slightly alcohol. Decent to medium body, soft carbonation.
