BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - JUN 10, 2010
375ml bottle. Poured a slightly cloudy dark golden color with a thick and lasting head. Light perfume, mustiness and subdued hops in aroma. Getting a damp cellar thing with yeast involved. now picking up some soap and again some floral definitely the wood aging. Smooth body with medium carbonation and some bitterness in the finish. Flavor is lacking and maybe the wood did a number on the hops here. A bit sweet with some caramel and finishing dry. Overall an interesting experiment which yielded something not that interesting in the end.

Glouglouburp (5929) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2010
In short: A sweet, sugary, fruity and woody ale that feels like a barley wine. Acceptable
How: Bottle 375ml at Brasserie 4:20, Rome Italy
The look: Partly cloudy orange body topped by a very small white head leaving good lacing
In long: Nose is surprisingly subdued for a 11% IIPA. Light aroma of dried fruits and woodshed. Taste is rather sweet, a bit too much so. Candied fruits, dried fruits, residual sugars, some construction wood. Not much bitterness. The barrel aging surely killed the hops. As a IIPA it fails but as some kind of sweet fruity woody barley wine this is decent. I love cats, those mysterious cute furry animals that exist somewhere between my eyes and the tv.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2010
(37.5cl bottle thanks to bu11zeye) Pours a cloudy gold with white fizzy head. Aroma of nice citrus hop and an odd woodiness that is alien to me. Flavor is the same. Still tasty, interesting, but tasty.

maxpizzo (62) - ITALY - MAY 3, 2010
awesome beer produced basing on the ideas of a roman brewer. presents great hoppy notes and aroma of wine and citrus. the idea of the barrel aging is interesting but in myu opinion doesn’t add too much to the beer

Embrouille (2803) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 1, 2010
Bottled 375ml. Interesting aroma. Again, I think the barrel aged components don’t add anything. Still pretty good.

thirdeye11 (5393) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2010
(37.5cl bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear yellow with light bubbles. Nose of candi sugar, grapes, vinous. Taste of bitter grapefruit, citrus, cane sugar, medium-light oily body.

ilovedarkbeer (2198) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2010
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours a hazy deep golden color with a small off white bubbly head. Notes of lemons, white grapefruit, sugar syrup, and nuts. Medium to long finish. The acasia oak imparts additional notes of fresh air, and cut flowers.

BMan1113VR (7788) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 23, 2010
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a large white head and a hazy golden body. Aroma is very floral, white wine, fruity. Taste is floral, grapefruit and slightly more tannic than the rest. Lively bubbles, creamy carbonation. The best of the four in my opinion.

altonbrownd (4615) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 12, 2010
Bottle from Bierkoning. #4. This one is quite nice. Nice caramel glow with lasting, medium head. Paper nose, not much to it. Quite malty taste that gets more hoppy, and piny towards the finish. Sweet on the way down. Quite nice, really.

Slayer85 (1041) - Firenze, ITALY - APR 8, 2010
Corked bottle. A hazy dark golden to pale amber beer with a large, frothy, mostly lasting white head. Nice and quite strong aroma, with a nice hoppiness, and enough malt. There are notes of grapefruit, lemon, passion fruit, wood and caramel. The wood is not overwhelming, and the aromas are well balanced. The flavour is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, lively carbonation, very long finish with medium to high bitterness, well hidden alcohol. Good balance and interesting experiment, however I prefered the reference version
