DrnkMcDermott (2855) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2007
33 cl bottle in tulip glass, "Best Before" 3-2-10 but dangit; I want it now! Deep mahogany pour with lots of sediment bits, slightly gray head. A light honey smell with a metallic twang. Taste is honey with bits of currants and plums to start. Very mellow throughout, with impressions of fresh black bread and Christmas pudding, then raisin cookies. Very warming, but no alcohol hotness. Were I more patient with this bottle, it might have smoothed out in a year or so. Dumping in the dregs at the end gives it some bite at the finish.

tmrmwel (1108) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 23, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark brown amber, with a big creamy head receding to finger thickness. Aroma is roasted malts and fruity Belgian yeast, with bread, nuts, wood and kandi. Full body, with average, pearly carbonation. Flavour is roasted malts and yeast with dark fruits, as well as coffee, wood, kandi and some herbal notes.

rami_pl (188) - Warszawa, POLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Butelka, warka do 26.08.18. Piana wysoka, acz "szampanska" - syczaca i dosc szybko opadajaca. Piekna barwa - rubinowo-miedziano-brazowa. nieprzejrzyste. Aromaty karmelowe, owocowe (wisnie przede wszystkim, ale tez jakies sliwkow-rodzynkowo-bananowe), slodowe, rowniez alkohol. Skojarzenie z wisniami w likierze. W smaku wlasciwie w pelni kompatybilnie z aromatem - jest kwaskowatosc wisniowa, jest slodycz karmelowa, jest alkohol likierowy (delikatny), jest tez wysokie wysycenie odczuwalne na jezyku, goryczka praktycznie nie wystepuje. W porownaniu z innymi dublami wydaje sie bardziej kwaskowate i stanowczo bardziej wisniowe - wiec jest tez bardziej orzezwiajace w sumie. Bardzo fajne piwo, i zaskakujaco lekkie, mimo %

gyllenbock (5228) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2015
On tap at Man in the Moon. Dark brown with a small creamy head. Sweet and vinous with malt, dried dark fruit, caramel, honey and light chocolate. The body was full and the finish long with warming alcohol. A nice one.

SinH4 (473) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 20, 2015
Brown color with very thick smooth head. Complex, but not too intense aroma of fruits and candied sugar. Complex, but not intense. Taste is spicy and malty, dark fruits, raisins. Smooth carbonation. Really good. The Pater is less complex, but heavier.

StueyD (1304) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2015
A dark, murky brown coloured beer with a frothy off white head. A musty malt aroma, there’s a light, vinegary fruit aroma. Dry but full mouthfeel. The taste starts off with a dry, dusty, nutty flavour, then there’s a mild boozy sourness that ushers in a red fruit flavour that lasts into the finish.

MarkoNm (972) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - FEB 20, 2015
Pours a hazy, slightly chunky, brown color, topped with quite some tan colored head, that quickly disappears. Yeasty aroma, soury notes and slightly earthy. Taste is between sweet, yeasty and soury. Finish is malty. Not bad, a bit too sour, but still drinkable.
