bhensonb (13616) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 4, 2016
Bottle from Wine and Cheese. Pours hazy copper with a beige head. Aroma of brown sugar with an oak note. Med. body at least. Heat is noticeable, but is just a flavor. Followed by brown sugar and toasty/woody aspects. Quite the sipper. Not at all bitter - but the heat substitutes. Very enjoyable.

Koelschtrinker (15817) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 26, 2016
Weich röstig-alkoholischer Antrunk. Nussig brotige Aromen, steigende Süße. Noten von Mandeln, der Alkohol steigt dann rasch an und brennt später auch in der Nase. Insgesamt aber dennoch rund würzig, gelungen. 8/10/9/11/9/10

DSG (11117) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 25, 2016
Bottle sample at a tasting at the new LiBira brewpub. Thanks eyes_wide_shut and YK23. Deep golden with no head. Aroma of malt, caramel, honey, flowers, wood, some fruitiness, alcohol. Sweet flavor, very boozy, with caramel, honey, fruits, a woody note. Boozy mouthfeel. Way too boozy.

drpimento (2892) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Another excellent BW in this line! Aroma doesn’t match flavor too much as it’s a bit tart, has a little funk along with yeast and toffee. Thought it might be bad. Flavor’s much more sweet than bitter, has enough tang. Very nice drinking beer for its power. Hides alcohol well. Yum.

thewolf (11881) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2015
Bottle, bought @Mikkeller webshop. Pours murky amber with lots of small floaties. No real head. Aroma is sweet, sherry, oak, vinious, caramel. Low carbonation, fine dry and quite oily mouthfeel. Flavour has sweet malts, vinious, caramel, oak, vanilla. Lingering warming finish. Good Barley Wine.
