Big full bodied sweet beer with some roasted notes and astringency. Just not my style I guess.

77ships (5405) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2015
Sampled draft as “De Molen Epitaph” @ “Kaapse Brouwers 1st Anniversary Beer Festival”. I wonder as to what happened to these Merciless guys & there massively overpriced beers. Murky amber brown with no head. Nose is big on sugar, candy, heavily oxidized, honey, more candy & strong alcohol. Taste is largely flat oxidized, sugar, caramel, big sweetness, cooked apple, more sugar, light floral bitterness & intensely big alcohol, burning really,… Flat, heavily sugar, oddly lightly watery. Good for heavily alcohol sugar, I can work with this but more than a few sips is all I needed.

androman (920) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2015
On tap, 1dl tasting glass @ Kaapse Brouwers 1st Anniversary Beer Festival 2015, Rotterdam. Body is opalescent deep ruby amber, head is small, fizzy, beige, mostly diminishing, no lacing. Nose is liqueur, flavor is caramel, whiskey, molasses, honey, mild coffee. Heavy sweet, light sour. Finish is long lasting heavy sweet medium sour, heavy alcohol warmth. Full body, sticky texture, flat carbonation. Very heavy, difficult to drink, as bad as I expected but interesting.

The head is ok, the body brown-red. It smells wooden, strong, alcoholic, barrel. The taste is wooden, bit hoppy, alcoholic, creamy, good for the stomach.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2013
On tap @ Haandfest 2013. This monster pours a deep blurry wood brown body with a small islandy and sidesticking just off-white bubbly head. The nose is intense and sweet. Lots of malty and caramel sweetness with only subtle traces of something ripe fruity. Nuts and definitely wood here! The alcohol is also shining pretty much. Yeah, it’s a monster in the taste alright. Really sticky on the texture and it has only hints of any form of carbonation. Tons of bitter nuts here, it’s not as hoppy as I had hoped for. The main part of this taste is in the thick malty sweetness. Did i mention the alcohol? Well, it has lots of it. Warming and somewhat calming. Actually not all that horrible, but not something you can drink to much for. A good gimmick for a festival beer. 25.05.2013

ClubGonzo (4724) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2013
Tap sample @ Haand Festival 2013. Light clear amber body, tiny off-white head. Aroma is melon, red berries, grass, hints of peaches and caramel. Well-hidden alcohol. A bit odd, but OK. Taste is caramel, red berries, grass, toffee, loads of alcohol and hints of burnt sugar and wood. Way too boozy in the taste, but otherwise quite pretty all right.
