Bov (9755) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 29, 2014
from Erzbierschof - quite clear red-brown beer with a solid foamy beige head; nice lace; woody aroma of sour cherries and berries; full-bodied, thick and pretty sticky; a solid sweetness soon overwhelmed by a robust bitterness; caramel, marzipan and very woody cherryish and piney finish

hopscotch (9487) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2011
Bottle… Farewell to ibrew2or3… Hazy burnt-orange ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Excellent retention. The bouquet is a malty, vinous marriage of caramel, ethanol and toasted oak with a kiss of Cabernet. Full-bodied and velvety with soft carbonation. The flavor is a blend of sweet caramel and bitter, citric, tannic hops. Tilts way bitter. Tannic, raspy, bitter finish that dries out quite a bit. Bottle courtesy of ibrew2or3!

Bottle @ dan’s house. Hazy, red violet appearance with a tan head. Rich caramel, toffee, light chocolate, slightly fruity, mild vinous aroma. Rich, quite mild red vinous, caramel, toffee, sweet malty flavor. Very nice beer that I’m enjoying way more than the normal version.

Reddish pour at the FW fest. Off white head. Aroma is loaded with sticky malts, light tartness from the wine barrels, some boozey notes and a wisp of hops. Flavor is all over the place, in a good way! Red wine, booze, oak, caramel, toffee, sweet bready yeasty goodness.

JorisPPattyn (8031) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 25, 2012
Mango to cream-yellow, very good head over very deep red-brown beer, lively carbonated with fine bubbling; Alcohol, fusels and C-hops, very fruity (citruspeel, kumquat, figs,...) Again alcohol very much in front; warmin, sweet-bitterish. Some dark chocolate too, and red, vinificating fruit; brown mushroom sauce. Quite well-carbonated, fully viscous and full bodied; Alcoholwarming. Aftertaste is definitely fusely-vinous, with incense aroma. Quite good BW, if severe.
