DesertDevil (620) - Arizona, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Bottle courtesy of shadbow. Pungent and heavy nose of teriyaki sauce, peaty Scotch, smooth phenols and a wet-soil finish. Pours flat obsidian with ruby traces. The taste is quite smoky and roasty, with heavy soy sauce, thick chewy malt, faint balsamic vinegar, and very light Calvados Scotch flavor. Thick body. Solid, but not spectacular.

hopdog (9580) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2015
Nip sized bottle. Poured an oily black color with brown edges and a smaller sized tan head. Chocolate, roasty, wood, lots of smokiness, and a trace of brandy. Grew on me as it opened up.

Swaroga (1636) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 18, 2015
This one has the most rounded flavor and intensive wood notes among the ones I tried from Goerge! serie. The sweetness is less cloying and the beer got more dry which is just what it needed. Thick and oily mouthfeel. Aroma is black chocolate, wood, alcohol, dried fruits and raisin. Good stuff. Flavor is the same. Warming alcohol has a good kick from the Calvados barrels. A big joy to sip it.

martjoobolut (1287) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 28, 2015
0,33L bottle (from bierkompass.de). Pours black with small brown head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is dark chocolate, roast, some sourness, calvados. Flavor is roast, sweetness, dark chocolate, malt, calvados, some salty notes. Finish is dark chocolate and roast bitter. Overall: great brew, but not as enjoyable as bourbon and cognac BA-s.

330ml bottle (thanks martjoobolut). Pitch black color. Small size, brown head, stays. Sweet, malty, roast, dark chocolate in aroma. Intense roast, faint hops, oak acorns in taste. Roast is bit rough. Alcohol stays down. Nice one!
