Had a sample at mikkeller bangkok. Huge beer. Aroma of molasses, spices, orange, caramel. Bitter, very sweet and a little bit sour.

Scopey (7449) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2014
Keg at BD Shep’s B. It pours hazy deep orange with a small white head. The nose is sweet, boozy, big wood character, damp leaf, spice, stewed orange, vinous, oily and cointreau. The taste is big, bold, boozy, vinous, white grape, big prickly warmth, stewed orange, tangerine, candied peel, gooseberry, light floral, woody, cointreau and earth with a lingering warming finish. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Interesting, but soooo big and hot. A fun sipper for sure.

Bov (9810) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 10, 2014
draught@Erzbierschof - cloudy dark red-orange beer with a little foam left; fair woody aroma with notes of nuts and berries; hints of soja and quince marmamalde; full-bodied, thick and light sticky, light umami; some sweetness soon overwhelmed by a huge bitterness; some astringency and a long very woody fruity and nutty finish with a strong alcohol presence

teorn88 (3064) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2014
Keg at BD Shepherd’s Bush tap takeover. It pours a deep amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet and boozy with notes of wood, malts, toasted bread, burnt sugar, white wine. Taste is again sweet and quite complex with notes of sweet malts, candy sugar, toffee, white wine, bubble gum and liqueur. Finish is alcoholic and quite sweet with light esters. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, definitely too sweet to be truly enjoyable

HoppyBudgie (757) - SOLA, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2014
Sweet nose, light barrel and hints of wine. Sweet malty barley wine, low on hops, just sweetness, oaky and hints of white wine on the finish. Could be cellared a while. A big kicker

Skinnyviking (7235) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2014
Draught at Taphouse. Low fluffy and quickly disappearing head. Clear dark amber body. Aroma sweeter than expected of malt grass honey and wine. Flavour though bittersweet malt grass wine wood and alcohol not as dominant as feared. Low carbonation. Long finish.

Desverger (2386) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2014
Tap@Taphouse, Copenhagen - amber coloured pour with beige head. Sweet malty aroma and taste, toasty, caramel, dried fruity and nutty, some spice, herbal nuances, some wine tinged wooden notes on the palate, good mouthfeel, sweet warming boozy finish.

Procent (174) - POLAND - AUG 31, 2014
Aromat słodkich, aż kandyzowanych owoców, łączy się z winnym aromatem po leżakowaniu. To połączenie przywodzi mi też na myśl dodawane do piwa papryczki chili, jest dość ostry. Smak to połączenie owocowej, gęstej słodyczy barley wine z intensywną winnością, kwaśnością. Ciekawe połączenie, aczkolwiek dla mnie trochę zbyt kontrastowe. Alkohol wyczuwalny, ale na akceptowalnym poziomie.

Holmen1 (2791) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2014
Fra fat på Cardinal, Brewers’ Night (en herlig kveld for ølinteresserte): uklar gylden med hvitt filmskum. En innertier for alle som liker chardonnay. Fatlagringspreget og honningaktig alkoholsødme, uten å være klebrig søt i ettersmaken. Godt ganglag for sjelen.

DWF, tap på Cardinal’s Brewers’ Night. Dyp gyllen farge hvit skum, Vanvittig kraftig smak, for mye alkoholsmak. Denne var ikke etter min smak. En munnfull var nok.
