jerohen (1992) - Bussum, - AUG 11, 2012
Tasted at Burg Bieren Festival 2012. Amber colored, small head. Vinous nose, raisins, hop. Fruity flavor, hops and sweetness are balanced. Probably good aging candidate. Great brew!

skortila (4467) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2014
On tap @ Dorstige herten. The aroma has caramel, plums, raisin and quite some dominiating spicy tones (cardemom or something like it). Bit hazy, reddish-brown coloured beer with a thin, off-white head. The taste is quite sweet, bit sticky mouthfeel, caramel, plums and some raisin there and off-course the strong spicy tones.

FatPhil (9277) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 22, 2014
(Tap at In De Wildeman)
Hazy dark raspberry colour with a dollop of head. Slight sourness in the aroma and perhaps a fart or two, also some sticky hops. Sticky and stingey hops in the taste. Sweetish. The slight sourness in the aroma turns into nettles in the taste, and the hint of farts works as part of the taste. Some walnuts and pleasant barley winey overtones. Sweetish. This has some stealth hops in - they build nicely.
Possible issue with the pipes - I’d like to try this again.
Unusually, Phil did not share this.
5+ 3 7 4 13 = 3.2

Hekdere oranje en koperen kleur met een aardige kraag. Ruikt beetje creamy, fruit, hout. Smaakt vol, bitterzoet, beetje houterig. Iets bittere afdronk met alcohol nasmaak.

sic1314 (3199) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2014
Poured a slightly hazy reddish amber with a small bubbly head. Aroma is vinous, sweet dark fruit and soft malt. Medium to full body, light for the ABV. Flavour much as the aroma, easily drinkable for the strength.
