Sigmund (5128) - Tau, - JAN 14, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2013 250 ml bottle in silk paper and metal cylinder, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 12.5%. Sampled side by side with 2. edition. Deep reddish brown colour, clearer and slightly paler than the 2. edition, low off-white head. The aroma here is somewhat better, notes of red wine and red beets. The flavour is definitely better, vinous notes (fortified wine), hints of oak, nicely balanced bitterness in the finish. Warming mouthfeel, but slightly less alcoholic than 2. ed. Quite good stuff.

JorisPPattyn (7939) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 27, 2014
Head gone in secs, reduced to rim around brownish, unclear beer. Fruity nose, but as fruitsweets, bit artificial, oxydized too. In the Japanese mode, I’m thinking of their dried or preserved prunes. I blame the sake yeast. Alcohol, some fusels, yeasty and very fruity esters (plums, dried peach,...) and really sweet. Bit of liquorice, and faint, periferal (fruity) acidity. Long dry-bitterish, bit spicy finish; whilst in the aftertaste, the characteristic benzene flavour, hallmark of sake, appears. Very slick, oily feel; well-bodied; alcoholwarming. Certainly not bad - but I prefer more conventional beer yeasts, I’m afraid.

RexTalionis (2458) - FINLAND - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle. Unclear amber with an offwhite head. Sweet dark syrup, vinous notes, raisins and hints of mild yeastyness in aroma. Mmm, nice, feels soft and smooth. Light smokyness even in taste at first, but more of them sweeter dark fruitier notes and vinous ones in taste takes over later on. Nice as a sipper though. The light old wooden cellar smokyness adds a nice touch here.

Foffern (1248) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2014
Bottle at home. The colour is deep amber with a small, off-white head that fades fast. Sweet aroma of caramel, leather, oak, alcohol and hops in the background. Sweet flavour as well with more sweet caramel, leather, oak and a strange cigarette and cardboard ending. Has a slick and silky mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. A sweet and interesting ale, but the flavour feels a bit unbalanced. Maybe over top.

Beerhammaren (1086) - FINLAND - SEP 14, 2014
.25l bottele from Alko Arkadia Pours couldy orange/copper with low head. Aroma is fruits, caramel, malts, dark fruits. Complex. Flavor is alcohol, dried fruits, caramel, red berries, dark fruits, plums, some bitternes in the end. Well balanced beer, but somehow a bit thinner flavor than in 2nd edition.

Travlr (11976) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Draft at Churchkey. Hazy amber color. Aroma of spiced caramel. Taste is similar; not nearly as sweet as the others in this series (all tasted side by side).

TET (1658) - FINLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle #04297, brewed 20.12.2011, bbe 20.12.2016. A reddish brown beer with a very weak and blond head. The nose is complex, unique adn interesting. Richness of malts, sweet fruits and caramell, melon, marshmellow, strawberries, riped bananas. Taste is quite sweet but it’s not bothering, caramel malts, melon, lots of unspecified fruits, some drying bitterness. Full bodied, low carbonation, not heavy. Sake yeast has made the work and the result is a unique fruitmix. Interesting and succesfully, fruitful and sweet beer.

ferryman72 (13) - NORWAY - AUG 9, 2014
Intense, sweet (caramel) aroma. Clear, light brown with no head. Sweet (umami?) taste that lingers, then turns lightly bitter. Medium body, thin feel, average carbonation, slightly bitter, long finish. This beer must be savored and enjoyed over a long period of time.
