bierkoning (12111) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2010
From bottle @ 2nd BBF. Almost black and opague. Chocolate and soy sauce overshadow the vinous notes in the aroma. The wine-like barrel notes are stronger in the flavor. Partly hidden soy sauce in the aftertaste. Good, but the balance could be better.

thewolf (11931) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Vinens Verden, Odense.
Completely black, lovely, staying, light-brown creamy head. Aroma has lots of complexity. Chocolate abound, quite a lot of coffee, roasted malts and a lot of tannins, plums, oak. Some sweet-sour feel to it. Low to medium carbonation, dry but also fairly light mouthfeel. Flavour is vinious, dry, lots of hard roasted malts, chocolate, coffee. There are plenty of tannins and a slight tartness to the oak. Still, the overall feel leaves me with some boozy notes which detract - especially considering how well SEVEN was barrel aged.

Pinball (11841) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2010
bottle, sampled in a mikkeller glass at home, celebrating having enjoyed 66cl hopping frog doris the destroyer. pitch dark when settled,poured dark clear brown. Head is fantastic, brown lower down,and light brown higher up. dry roasted malty aroma with "just enough" hops to make it very interesting. flavor is flowery hoppy, roasted grainy, red wine, faint wood. actually pretty interesting - You can clearly taste the grapes. somehow they do not add sourness but rather a fresh grape juice like note to the flavor. Overall leaves the impression of being not that strong, and a bit like lemonade. Serve this to the uninformed and they’ll get themselves seriously drunk ;-). The fruity notes (probably both from hops and the wine barrels) makes me think of black and blue berries. This is pretty deep stuff.. I am very grateful that i get to taste it. (entire bottle to myself, HAH). some of the flavor profile leads me to think of imp. IPA, but the rest is a pretty solid imp. stout. While not as balanced and well composed as e.g. yeti imp stout, this one is very unique and one of those beers You’ll be sorry to miss out on.
