Valgreen (752) - DENMARK - JUL 8, 2015
Bottle @ home. Bought at De Molen. BB 26/01/21. Murky brown, no head or lacing. Aroma, caramel, raisins, dark fruits, funky, wood, chocolate notes, candy. Really surprised about the aroma, it smelled almost of and sour, close to just throw it out. Taste, lots of red wine notes, dry red grape notes, caramel, wood, funky, some alcohol, red berries, dark fruits. Funny mix of sour and sweet. Dry mouth feel. Would like to try it fresh.

Bottle. The bottom of which pours to a disgustingly murky deep brown body. The regular pour looks like a nice quad. Funky brett and red wine infused quad. The taste is red wine and funky quad with lots of caramel and deep yeasts. Creamy velvety body with a very well hidden alcohol.

Mörkbrun med stort ljust skum! Massor med rödvin ganska söt och dessertvin i både doft och smak! Bra kolsyrad och riktigt grym öl! Tappad på flaska 26/1 2011 och bäst före 2021 dracks ca 3 år efter flask datum

Nose is dark fruits, light spice, red wine woody tannin twang. Taste comprises tarte red grapes, light booze, caramel, pinch of spice, tinged with woody red wine notes. Full bodied, fine carbonation, semi sry close. Solid stuff, plenty of depth.

maneliquor (3468) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle shared in London for my farewell drinks. Picked this one up at Kris Wines I think. Pours clearish mahogany with a small beige head. Nose is plenty of ripe berries with some tartiness as you’d expect, slightly acidic, grapefruit, zesty and milk chocolate. Lots going on but balanced decently. Taste is like a sour Pinot Noir. Think black cherries, tarty blueberry, dusty chocolate, raisins and some bretty tang. A nice red wine finish with some coconut and spice in there. A lot happening but works quite well. Solid drop

Leighton (13942) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle shared in London for Josh’s farewell tasting. Thanks to Josh himself for this one. Pours hazy brown with a creamy beige head. Lots of lightly tart fruits in the nose, berries, wood. Medium sweet flavor with a bit of woody alcohol, bread, mildly tart fruits, ripe citrus, faint toffee. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with lingering tart fruits, mild acidity, slight caramel. Nice.
