Koelschtrinker (10504) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 20, 2014
Hopfig würziger Antrunk, bei dem die Gewürznoten milder als beim Sauternes Fass sind. Intensivere Hopfigkeit und Fassnoten, geringfügig alkoholisch. Gut! 8/11/11/11/11/11

angel77 (889) - oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 10, 2014
Botella de 37.5 cl de cervezalandia, en el momento el 10-08-2014. consumo pref para 20-09-2014. Color ámbar algo traslucido con bastante espuma blanca y persistente. Aromas afrutados y ligeramente maltosos con bastantes toques de maderas algo dulces. Cuerpo medio con 7.8 vol con bien de gas, generando bastante espuma en todo momento. Sabores afrutados, sobretodo al coger temperatura, y maderas con algo de vainillas y toque de licor y vinos ligero al final mezclado con amargo suave. Tonos maltosos y algo dulces, pan de higos, galletas. Regusto largo afrutado con maderas,,avinadas,, bastante bueno y duradero. Bastante buena buena combinación de sabores y como siempre gran aportación del envejecimiento. Para repetir sin duda.

lusikka (6207) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2014
375 ml bottle. Pours a dark copper colour with a large frothy white head. Aroma of wood, marzipan, some butterscotch and heavy floral notes. Flavour of rich floral bitterness, pine, some orange, red berries and quite nice wooden tartness. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lingering bitter, tart and wooden finish. Some alcohol warmth. The red wine notes are very subtle, but it is there. I still like my IPAs without red wine.

SlackerMads (1547) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2014
Bottle. Why are the men on the label serving misteltoe, a poisonous and parasitic plant, to the raindeer? Perverts, that’s what they are. This beer pours clear reddish orange with a large frothy white head. Flavour has a very pleasant barrel character with wooden notes, caramel, ripe sweet fruit, gooseberries. Medium body, pretty soft and smooth but perhaps slightly watery. Really nice, doesn’t look like my recent appreciation of barrel aged light beers is wearing off.

Grzesiek79 (3181) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 29, 2014
Troche sie zawiodlem spodziewalem sie wiecej aromatow winnych, taninosci, a tu znowu ta moda na amerykanskie chmielenie, wyczuwalo sie je ale takze lekko slodowosc to tonowala. Piwo koloru jasnego bursztynu oraz z ladna i trwala piana. Lekko metne na koncu dolewki do kieliszka. Podsumowujac jest to ciekawe podejscie do IPA ale stanowczo beczki po winie nie graja tu znaczacej roli, zarowno w wygladzie, jak i zwlaszcza w smaku. Aromat winny byl wyczuwalny najbardziej w nozdrzach, ale to zdecydowanie za malo jak dla mnie. Polecam, ale pod rozwage.

Yorker (1162) - Herning, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2014
37.5 cl bottle @ home. Pours cloudy amber with a white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma and flavour are berries, grapefruit, caramel, oak, and just the tiniest hint of red wine - with a dry finish.
