olio (6494) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 8, 2014
375 ml bottle.
Pours clear orange color with a minimal head, some sediment in the bottle. Very sweet alcoholic aroma, honey and caramel with molasses and some apricot. Very sweet flavor with caramel and toffee, some honey and ripe fruits too, again, apricot mostly, very dry wooden finish, some lingering hops here too! Alcohol burns your throat quite strong here. An extreme heavy brew with some nice nuances. I like the aroma on this one but drinking it is a chore.

lusikka (6523) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 8, 2014
375 ml bottle. Pours a golden colour with a small head. Aroma of strong sweet apricot jam notes, cheese cake, bread and alcohol. Flavour is very, very sweet with apricot jam, some slightly salty licorice notes, strong wooden tartness, earth, herbal hoppiness and some mild berry notes. Full bodied with oily mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Alcohol warms, or should I say burns. Heavy stuff. A dessert.

Pinball (10922) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2014
unclear yellow with particles, small film smooth offwhite head. Impressively nice toffe based malty barley wine aroma with some alc. bite. Flavor is malts, wood, toffee, caramel, alc. bite, some bitterness, faint fruity sourness and faint berries. a bit rough around the edges, might gain mellowness if lagered longer.

angel77 (1088) - oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 10, 2014
Botella de 37.5 cl en cimmeria en el momento el 10-10-2014.(r45- rat 1000) Color dorado algo velado con posos en suspensión y poca espuma blanca a beige, que desaparece casi por completo al poco. Aromas muy alcohólicos acercándose casi al whisky y calvados con toques de maderas. Maltas tostadas ligeramente dulces (azúcar ligeramente caramelizada y tostada ) y muy alcohólicas. Sabores secos y alcohólicos, un auténtico licor, toques caramelo tostado y maderas con algo de vainillas. Acabado seco y alcohólico ligeramente amargo que recuerda a licores como el calvados e incluso algún whisky tipo oban, glenrothes... Dominio total de la sensación alcohólica y licorosa. 19.3 Vol que se disfrutan despacio de principio a fin, una autentica maravilla para beber despacio y con tiempo. Una maravilla.
