OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2010
Corked and nicely decorated bottle from ØlKonsortiet, Aalborg. A finger of dense yellow tanned head over a clear, dark mahogny colored body. Lovely aroma of cream caramel, milk chocolate, roasted nuts and pepper. Taste is more than medium sweet. Lots of English licorice and some burnt sugar/caramel. Notes of sourish malts and a certain fruity bitterness. Well-bodied. Alcohol warmth and a light astingency on the palate. Peppery, light sourish and light hop bitter endnotes.

Bottle (beautifully wrapped in golden paper). Redbrown with a tight beige head. Aroma of chocolate, apricot and fruits. The taste is heavy and sweet but still fresh with hints of licorice root. Well carbonated, full body.

ClubGonzo (5420) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2010
Deep coppery-red body with thin off-white head. Aroma is very fruity and sweet, with strawberry, peaches, wine yeasts and molasses. Taste follows suit, with cane sugar, deep malty fruitiness and caramelized apples. Palate is smooth and oily. This is a satisfying and very dense, sweet beer that verges on the edge of being too much but just barely makes in into balanced territory. Nice drinking.

Bottle @ Festival der Bierkulturen. I should have not wasted my tickets @ the other kiosks in favor of Mikkeller. I feel I made a big mistake by not exhausting their resources, only opting for 2 or three of their brews. I’d take a trip to the brewer and beg their forgiveness if only Denmark wasn’t so freaking expensive to stay...anyone want to put me up for a few nights? Anyhow, I was jumping for joy over 2 things. A damn good IPA, which they surpassed, and a good Belg Ale. This brew seemed more of an expensive novelty, so I feel I can’t go all out on ratings like I could for an everyday runner such as Maudite. But, it’s still really damn good. Nose was typical belgian ale minus the sometimes bottle funk you get. Notes of dark fruits, a bouquet of fresh wild flowers, herbal notes, and a bit of citrus tied into a cloyingly sweetness. Taste was dark fruits like plum, cherry, some apricot, a vanilla hint here and there, and some really good herbs and spices. Well rounded the only problem I had was the alchohol was not masked @ 100% but that’s tough to do I guess when it’s @ 12%. Still, Would love to stock about 50 of these for rainy days and hurricanes for when I return to Florida.

Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - MAR 18, 2010
Bottle. Pours slight hazy deep amber coloured with a nice small creamy light brown lasting head. Vinous aroma with notes of prunes, raisins, chocolate, syrup, caramel and mild spice. Rich and warming flavour with notes of caramel, toffee, dried fruit, yeast and chocolate. I expected nothing more than a burning alcoholic pour, but i must admit this was a great beer..

Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours deep brown with a lovely, medium, creamy, off-white head. Aroma begins light metallic, berries, yeast, light caramel, viniousness, raisins, cloves, a hint of chocolate. Medium to low carbonation, lovely creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is very nice, relatively similar to a good Quad (reminds me slightly of La Trappe). Raisins, chocolate, viniousness, caramel, yeasty goodness, slight hint of cranberry tartness. Lovely, lingering bitterness with slight toasted caramel and a bit of fruit. Great!
