Sigmund (6646) - 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.

dnicolaescu (1935) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - AUG 24, 2016
Shared BOTTLE 25 CL. Hazy amber, almost no head. Big fruit upfront, then goes old smelly cheese and a good deal of band aid. The taste is much sweeter, creamy malts, hints of band aid and burnt paper. Bit of grassy hops - just a bit. Interesting. And overpriced.

MarcoDL (3980) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2016
Bottle. Red brown color. Aroma has caramelised malt, raisin, mild pine and ripe fruit. Rich taste of caramelised malt, ripe fruit, spicey yeast and a little cardboard unfortunately, seems a bit carbonated. Still nice, special and creative.

bunget (816) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2016
Sampler from a bottle. Cloudy red-orange dirty body, no head. Aroma of caramel malt, old cheese, plums and rotten fruits. Taste of beet juice, sugary malt, yeast, plum butter. Flat and oily. Too sweet and simple.

Gerbeer (3083) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 18, 2016
250 ml bottle. Pours a murky brown with dark floaties and little head. Aromas of brown sugar, bacon, and old malts. Flavors of same tending towards burnt meat and burnt sugar. Not a fan. Maybe too old.

Komeassa boksissa on erilliseen punaiseen paperiin käärittynä pieni pullo, jonka sisältö ei juurikaan vaahtoa lasiin kaadettaessa. Väriltään olut on melko keskiruskea, aavistuksen punertava. Lähes kirkas. Tuoksu alkoholinen, luumuinen, maltaisen toffeinen ja hiivainen. Maku luumuinen, toffeisen makea ja hieman alkoholinen ja konjakkimainen ennen kaikkea jälkimaultaan. Melko täyteläinen suutuntuma, hiilihappoja vähänlaisesti. Ei tästä eroa löydä kakkosversioon, kun ei maistele rinnakkain.

Bouteille de 250 ml dans un tube partagée lors d’une dégustation entre amis. Arôme: Odeur de caramel avec une très légère pointe de vanille. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée voilée. Saveur: Goût de caramel fruité avec une pointe de réglisse et d’épices. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence d’alcool en arrière goût. (Rating #7014)

MartinT (9267) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 19, 2016
My Bottom Line:
Heavy but lax caramel meets with bitter hop resins, as simple profile neatly boxed in cardboard.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the cloudy amber.
-This was within the 5-year best before date and still was plenty oxidized. Rather surprising for such a sugar-laden high alcohol brew.
-The finish adds a dash of brown sugar.
-Carbonation is rather soft, making the body feel even heavier.

Douberd (4752) - 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 (2410) - 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.

Random encounter. Sweet, bitter and caffeinated. Reddish fruit and plumeish playback.0
