Een zacht winter bier met vanille en karamel, tikkeltje te zuur. Aanrader om deze te bewaren.

Holmen1 (3212) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2014
Kveldens tredje siste flaske på denne lange og fine RBDH-helga hos Asle Bjørn: brunsvart med tynt skum. Mørke bær, eik og vanilje i aromaen, og den deilige smaken har i tillegg fiken og andre tørkede frukter i seg. Fin balanse og mykt karbonert. God og lang ettersmak - en perfekt nightcap.

Sigmund (5554) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2014
Shared 330 ml bottle at local tasting. ABV is 9.6%. Dark brown colour, moderate beige head. Intense aroma of oak, molasses and alcohol. Distinctly oaky flavour too, but not as heavy and sweet as I feared. Warming mouth- and throatfeel. Not bad.

abemorsten (3071) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2014
Shared bottle during RBHD Mosterøl gathering. Clear deep ruby colored body with a light brown film. Vinuous tones, berries, vanilla on the nose. Dried fruits, malty, full bodied, pungent and alco warm. Well balanced and smooth to drink.

Holmen2 (1569) - NORWAY - AUG 30, 2014
Very dark brown. Small pale brown head. Alcohol, patent malt, dried fruits and fermented fruits in aroma. Similar fruity taste, with dark berries. Very little carbonation, but still quite refreshing.

MarcoDL (2594) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2014
Tasty barley wine with notes of dark fruits, raisin and some oak. Nice, but a bit too thin and average.

.750 bottle. Pours dark in color with almost no head. Has an aged smell almost like wine and port. Reminds me of aged cognac anding with a nice raisin taste. It is a very pleasant beer to enjoy.

On tap @ Doerak. Dark with a tan head. Aroma of coffee, licorice and booze. Taste is sweet, some coffee, licorice, dark chocolate, but alcohol/booze is overwhelming. Kind of disappointing when I look at the other ratings…did they change the beer?
