Damico (2524) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Pours mostly unclear with no head. Aroma is the best part, bringing huge complex notes of all of it, wine, roasted malts and chocolate, vanilla, and booze. Flavor is similar, but the booze is very pronounced and spicy combined with the wine. The flavors of vanilla and chocolate are so delicious on the palate and much more pronounced as the temperature goes up and booze settles.

Holmen1 (2316) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 19, 2014
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff aug-13. blir ingen fan av å lagre øl på rødvinsfat etter å ha smakt denne. Smaker bare surt. Svartvin? Tanninene fra fatet ødelegger et godt øl.

NosirIwont (1946) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle. 13.1%. Best before 18.03.14. Pours almost black with a small, quickly disappearing greyish-brown head. No lacing. Heavy aroma; dark fruits, a bit oxidized, somewhat dusty and a bit of wood deep down. Flavour is tart, almost sour, and bitter; rather (red) wine-like, but at the same time it has a cold coffee feel to it (without an actual coffee note). Dark fruit note as well. Finish is tart/sour with dark fruits, more wine/cold coffee (without coffee), tobacco, an alcohol burn and a lingering burnt note, the latter diminishing as it warms. Overall so-so. The aroma is rather good, but the flavour doesn’t really hold up; too tart/sour, and the cold coffee note feels misplaced. 04.01.14.

Desverger (1729) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle from Voldby Købmandsgaard - pours a black dark reddish colour. With a small beige head. Aroma and taste of roasted malts, caramel, red wine tinged woody nuances, slight coffee and choc, berry type fruits. Complex, slick, vinous with a good subtle boozeyness in the finish. Beautiful.
