mgajdaczewa (603) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 31, 2014
w zapachu jest owocowo (śliwki węgierki, wiśnie), czuć lekką alkoholowość, lekki karmel, lekkie drewno (nuta starzonego piwa), ale profil wydaje się zaskakująco czysty i tą prostotą urzeka. W smaku za to dzieje się więcej, jako pierwsza uderza paloność, czuć likierowość, choć alkohol jest dobrze ukryty, wychodzi dopiero na finiszu lekko i przyjemnie rozgrzewając przełyk, sporo karmelu, ciemnych owoców i delikatny drewniany posmak na finiszu. Świetna pijalność mimo niemałego woltażu. Doskonałe!

Mortlach (1005) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 16, 2014
11/02/2014 Open Baladin Roma (handpump). Nera, densa, impenetrabile, schiuma leggera liquida, bianco sporca, discretamente persistente. Al naso malti tostati, con note di caramello, zucchero di canna e frutta matura. In bocca è meravigliosa, attacco dolciastro, note di caramello, pane di segale, cereali, leggero caffettoso e cioccolato fondente. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Birra eccellente, complessa ma non complicata, appagante e relativamente facile da bere. Una perla.

stantheman (675) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2014
Bomber from Legacy Liquor in Vancouver. An almost black beer with a moderate tan head. Big malts on the tongue, but they are not heavily roasted. The overall impression is rather sweet and fruity. No bitterness detected. Finish is as expected; malty, sweet and fruity. Very smooth and mellow, I’m moved to say. Not a tasting note found often on these pages, it seems. Nice.

Bottle generously shared at the RBWG grand tasting. Nose has earthy coffee and dark fruit notes. Flavor is primarily coffee with moderate ethanol hotness. Not a ton going on surprisingly, but solid nonetheless.
