Opaque dark brown beer, good pale tan head. Nose of paint and nail polish remover and sweet fruits!! Palate is airy and semi dry, mild fine carbonation. Taste largely follows the snout and adds a little dry dark chocolate. Trace of vanilla before a dry finish. Very messy.

mmahut (1521) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 8, 2015
Bottle, 2011. Pours in deep dark amber body with medium tan head, which evades after a while. Aroma of apple puree right away, with some mango, fresh raisins. Pretty light on the wood aroma. Alcohol well hidden on the nose. Taste has white wine character upfront, which in one moment along with the soft carbonation gives me a sense of a Champagne wine. It’s mostly woody and winy flavour, but pretty balanced with the beer. Light roasty bitterness on the after taste with warming alcohol. Body is high, oily texture, soft medium carbonation.

Degu @erzbierschof. Heftiger, likörartiger Duft. Wenig Sojasauce. Vollmundig, malzig-süss, wenig bitter, keine Säure, trotzdem leicht spritzig. recht gut.

angel77 (1524) - oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 13, 2014
Botella de 37.5 cl en llamas. Agosto de 2013. 10.9 vol. Color negro con espuma algo oscura no muy persistente.,,,Envejecida en barriles de vino blanco y con especias,,, aromas tostados y ligeramente dulces. Sabores también algo dulces notandose bien la madera y el toque fresco y alicorado del vino blanco, junto con toques algo especiados. Cuerpo medio que se bebe bastante bien con una buena sensación alcohólica. Muy buena mezcla de sabores y muy interesante el el envejecimiento de vino blanco. Muy buena. No tardará mucho en caer la segunda botella.

SarkyNorthener (3086) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2014
Bottle thanks to RichtheVillan. Very dark brown beer with no head, a little carbonation. Aroma is rich malts and empty wooden wine barrels. Taste is wood, spice, rich thick malts, white wine, alcohol and some fortified wine. This has a lot of the right flavours, but they just don’t gel well. Otherwise a very interesting beer.

Lowenbrau (2686) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 31, 2013
375ml bottle from 2D2Dspuma. Pours very dark with nice tan head, creamy. Some head retention and lacing. Some tart, grapy, funky and solvent-like aromas. Medium body, soft carbonation, silky texture. Taste is ripe fruit, caramel, quite alcoholic, some sour flavours and dry harsh notes. Some unbalanced.

Inbreak (3004) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 27.12.2013, 0,375l bottle @ home:
Nice slightly red-brown fizzy mediumlasting head. Aroma is very dry oaked and boozy, lots of spices, dark malts, cocoa, burnt coffee, grass. More like tequila aged than white wine I’d say. Taste is kind of sour-ish dry, oak, grass, spices, caramel malts, cocoa, citrus peel, white wine, sour coffee. Longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Fair enough, kind of strange.
