Sigmund (6281) - 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.

Douberd (4402) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2016
(Nøgne Ø Red Horizon 3. edition) Bottle 250 ml at home, from a trade with Cuso, thanks! Served into a snifter at home and tasted side to side with the 2nd edition, ABV 12.5% Deep red coloured body, slightly hazy, with a small and thin taan head, okay retention. Aroma of red and dark fruits, light caramel, cheese, sugars. Taste has caramel, dark fruits, red fruits, alcohol, light vanilla, light vinous notes. Medium body, good carbonation, sticky on the palate. Pretty good.

patricks110 (2376) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 9, 2016
Very similar to 2nd edition. A bit of a burnt coffee bean note with a brighter and more well rounded fruit profile. Caramel, heavy toffee and jammy bread notes. Interesting profile. 2 or 3 years aged.

gEUS (1676) - Linden, BELGIUM - JAN 15, 2016
bottle at home - teku glass, side by side 2. and 3. 2.: Pours clear dark amberish orange, no head. Aroma of aged hops and some smoke. Nice sweet body, some herbal bitters, some sake in the finish, with sweet bready malts. 3.: cloudier, darker. nose is more malt. Body and taste are likewise. Too bad they are over their point.

the aroma is very bright, fruity and caramel with notes of vanilla, toffee, licorice, berries and some spices... the taste is fruity, caramel and, a little bit, smoked with notes of port, toffee, dried banana, raisin and spices... sweet, dry and warming aftertaste...

MichaelAwesome (6297) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2015
Ein schönes, klassisch schweres Bier, das vor dunklen Früchten, Malz und Röstaromen nur so strotzt. Wenn man sowas mag, ist man sehr gut aufgehoben und wird mehr als nur gewärmt. Süffigkeit und Perlung ausgewogen, also gibt es auch hier nichts zu meckern. Gutes Piwo.

McTapps (6350) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2015
Bottle from a trade with Meilby - many thanks! The beer has got a hazy dark brown colour with a smooth body and smooth head. Aroma of prunes, roasted barley and malt. Taste of barley, roast, torf, prunes, plums and oak. Hints of sherry and rum. Great beer.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Naama’s place. Thanks Naama. Orange. Aroma is malty, fruity, a bit spicy, with caramel, a bit of alcohol. Sweet flavor, kinda boozy, with malt, caramel, toasty note, fruitiness, spicy note, bitter stale hops. Rounded mouthfeel, slick but boozy.
