gunnar (6715) - 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.

77ships (5895) - 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.

aveage mouth feel for a BW some light creaminess. Thinner than I might have expected. Flavor is well balanced a syrupy molasses like sweetness offset with a hint of toffee and a more English hop styling followed by a dry oaky flavor finishes with the reminents of a dry red wine married together well. Alcohol is noticeable but not problematic. Very well balanced. Good stuff.

Really enjoyable large sample. Nose is caramel and red wine notes, darker fruit bites with some cherry. Flavor is warming and rich, caramel and a smooth sweeter fruits, dark cherries and figgish... It’s easy drinking and has a great finish.

12.7oz bottle picked up at WLV poured into my Rodenbach Grand Cru glass... Pours a medium brown with lots of brick notes, medium clarity. A huge light tan head rises up to fill half the glass, great retention and lacing. Uglyish body hurts a great head here... The aroma is awesome, the beer is extremely malty with tons caramel, whopper malt, some oak, and a light red wine finish. This is outstanding except for the finish turns a bit fruity which doesn’t go with this... The taste is a let down compared to the fantastic nose, the maltyness is mostly gone replaced with more oak, a touch of sour and red wine. The finish is really flat with oak, alcohol, and a hint of hops. Really really disappointing. I can’t recommend this right now especially at the price. Heavy seas had a red wine barrel aged beer that was a little better than this.

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!
