Sigmund (5466) - 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.

jinroh (591) - ESTONIA - MAR 31, 2015
0,25 l bottle. Don’t really remember where did I get it, probably from Dogenzaka Shinanoya, a while ago. Pours hazy reddish copper, thin foam film that is completely gone in seconds. Aroma is rich, opulent, full of sweet caramel, fig fruits, sticky dates. Somehow appetising though, filling nostrils with satisfaction. Taste is also full, has fruits, dates, some sugary marmalade - but also dry hoppiness that succumbs into quite straightforward oak. Like chewing wood. Aftertaste is oak, mixed with some "old" sweetness. Quite kick-ass beer I would say, very different but immensely enjoyable.

rafael52 (128) - Łódź, POLAND - MAR 1, 2015
Kolor: jasno brązowy z bardzo lekkim zmętnieniem.
Piana:jasno beżowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, niezbyt obfita i szybko znikająca co przy tej zawartości alkoholu jest jak najbardziej normalne.
Zapach: na pierwszym planie aromaty ciemnych owoców lekko podsuszonych. Bardziej kojarzący się z piwami belgijskimi (np. Duchesse de Burgogne). Dalej melanoidyny z wyczuwalnymi nutami amerykańskich chmieli. Alkohol po zamieszaniu niestety wyczuwalny w niezbyt przyjemny sposób.
Smak: również głównie ciemne owoce z nutami karmelu, przypieczonej bułki maślanej. Słodowa podbudowa skontrowana goryczką o chmielowym charakterze spotęgowaną przez alkohol.
Wysycenie: średnie jak najbardziej pasujące.

suurjuust (1501) - ESTONIA - FEB 21, 2015
Amber brown beer, small tan head. Nose is caramel, dried fruit, mild yeasty notes. Flavor is thick malty caramel sweetness, toasty hints, fruity notes, bread, hoppy bitterness in the finish offset by more caramel sweetness and sake notes. Shared by martjoobolut, thanks!

pkomar (209) - Poznan, POLAND - JAN 3, 2015
Review from notes. Very rich, fruity aroma. Dried plums and some cherries in there with malty base. Taste is also very rich, alcohol well hidden warming the throat. All aromas are mixing with the flavour which gives this beer a very nice balance. Very good beer.

0,25 pullo@ Perkkaa UV. Todella samea, mutainen ja sakkainen, kinuskin ruskea. Tuoksussa makeaa mallasta, tunkkaista hedelmää, hiivaa, humalaa, luumua, alkoholia, sakea. Maussa selvästi sakea, jotenkin tulee mieleen tuohi. Mallasta ja humalaa, alkoholia ja luumua. Tuoksuaan paljon maukkaampi.

(Last) bottle from Risør Vinmonopol. Pours brown to red, with close to no head at all. Alcohol, prune and licorice nose. Thick, oily body, with low carbonation. Very sweet. Raisin, plum, ester, prune, some yeast and alcohol flavour. Also some peach, hint of licorice and rice. Vineous.

reebtogi (4522) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 2, 2014
250ml bottle pours a dirty brown color with very little head and no lacing on the glass. Aroma is alcohol and caramel with some fruity notes. Taste is an alcohol burn with some caramel malty and candy sweetness and a herbal hop bitterness. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Overall, a this is a brew, were the sweetness dominates the hops, which are noticeable. Recommended for an interesting tasting experience.
