gunnar (6631) - Sandnes, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2013
On tap at Cardinal. Pours deep red/amber with a tiny white head. Aroma of wood, oak, sweet juicy red berries. Taste is vinous, oaky , lots of barrel here. Resinous end, some stinging nice mint at the final, which is lingering, bringing the mouthfeel dry and clean at the end, good one.

18/I/14 - 37.5cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ RBBWG III, my place - BB: 27/V/23 (2014-93) Thanks to DomienS for sharing the bottle!

Clear red amber beer, creamy irregular light beige head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: fruity, malts, some citrus, grains, bit rural. MF: ok carbon, full body. Taste: bit sweet, sugary start, malts, some caramel, hoppy, dried fruits, some citrus. Aftertaste: pretty bitter, sweet and sugary touch, caramel, vanilla, some citrus, hoppy. Complexer than it’s regular version, but I preferred the regular nonetheless.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 25, 2011
In short: A clash of stuff. A beer that shouldn’t be.
How: Bottle, Post-EBF hotel tasting
The look: Cloudy copper body topped by a medium beige head
In long: Strange nose of dank basement, booze and fruits. Taste just didn’t work for me. Clash of toasted caramelized malts, astringency, wood barrels, sweaty used jack-strap, too much booze, some cardboard, vinous notes, some tannins. I hope there was something wrong with this bottle. This is again barrel aging done without discernment, not any beer can be aged in any barrel. There was many disappointments at EBF this year, but most disappointing of all was me. Again.

Mora2000 (6050) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a brown color with a tan head. The aroma is full of red wine and oak notes, as well as some toffee and brown sugar. The flavor is very similar. I get a lot of molasses and fruity red wine notes, as well as some oak, maple, vanilla and the alcohol you would expect in a beer that clocks in at 12 percent. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A nice barleywine.

caesar (5828) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle @ ZZT VII, thx to everyone for sharing their bottles. Lovely complex nose of caramel malt, raisin, red fruit. Frutiy in taste as well. Wonderful stuff.

Sigmund (5800) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2013
On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Hazy dark brown colour, moderate off-white head. Distinct aroma of oak / red wine barrel, a hint of fusel alcohols. Also notes of dark dried fruits. The flavour is very oaky, the red wine barrel does indeed dominate. Decent hops in the finish. Warming mouthfeel. Very tasty and interesting!

BoBoChamp (5758) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 15, 2012
38cl, new exclusive Danish brew Anno 2011, from De Hopduvel Gent, very complex brew, alcoholic/vinous and slightly woody/sweet, heavy, yet balanced, cloudy, good head, very good brew, yet very expensive!

77ships (5560) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 19, 2014
375 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2014. Courtesy of & thx! to DomienS. Amber coper with little head. Smells of iron, sweet barrel, touch wine, lots of brown sugar, herbal, feels faded. Taste is bitter wine leaves, iron, sweetish, simple, leaves, bitter malts, cereal, some bitter hops in the back, plenty of brown sugar. Touch less carb. Not too impressive, wasn’t to big of a fan of the regular one & this one is even a dash lesser. It is okay but it is too simple & underwhelming which is not something that a beer at this price point should be. Mikkeller has many other beers which deliver the good in a far more satisfying way than this one.

Bottle. Cloudy medium brown with a creamy tan head. Sweet caramel toffee apple red wine and oak aroma and taste. Thick sticky palate. Quite good.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber bruin body with an off white head. Red vinous wine notes, hints of caramel and dark fruit tones. Turpentine, very vinous and sweet boozy body. Really strong and boozy, so much that there seems little else to enjoy add the oxidation and well i was a bit let down.
