shoulderbroken (2842) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 30, 2015
Tap at Mikkeller Tokyo. Aroma is barley wine sweet graininess, hint of apple and pear, booze, generic fruitiness, marzipan. Taste is good, get the booze and the grain, but also a hint of the barrel. Maybe more oak than grape, but good stuff. Nice but maybe the alcohol makes it a slow sipper. Further down the booze starts to dominate. Bit of a burn to it. Torn. Liked it a lot to start with but in the end found it hard to finish and it was only a little glass.

Benzai (10613) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2015 Draught @ Van Moll Brewpub. Hazy medium orange color, small off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy sweet, some alcohol, raisins, wood, slightly vinous. Taste malts, sweet alcohol, lightly vinous, lots of raisins, wood, slightly tannine. Warming alcoholic, sweet-bitter finish. Full body, firm yet suitable carbonation. Not for the light hearted and typical Mikkeller style. -- Edit: after a night to think about it I feel the drinkability should weigh in as well and this beer does not have it. So I’ve adjusted my score a little. Original score 7-4-7-4-15 (3.7).

Lukasmh (610) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2015
Tap. Pours sirupy and vinous clear amber with great lacing and no head. Aroma has some booze at frist, but then it gets really complex. Orange, liquor, sweet port grapes, acidic sherry and wood. Some tobacco. Oxidation and grapes. Vanilla fudge. Taste has wuite some orange, wood, oaky vanilla and sweet. Bitter tannins does cut trough the sweetness. Grapes again and dry sherry finish. Really sticky and no carbonation. Liquor-like and a great sipper. Warming but pleasant finish with some zesty orange.

Christian (11805) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 26, 2015
On tap at Christian Firtal. Hazy amber with a small white head. Malty aroma of bread and biscuit with grapes, grappa, dried apricot and simple alcohol. Very sweet fruity and malty flavour, with some oak and white wine. Raw and primitive, but actually working a lot better than this description sounds
