laiti (8081) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 10, 2012
Draught @ Fermentoren, vintage 2008
Aroma is somewha sweet with sour cherries, some hay and earthy notes. Flavour is sweet, sour and somewhat tart with sourish cherries, spices, some oaky and portvin notes. Warming alcohol feeling. Sticky palate - also rather leathery in the finish. Good, but I expected more.

lusikka (7700) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 10, 2012
Draught @ Fermentoren, Copenhagen. 2008 vintage.
Pours a dark brown colour with a small beigeish head. Aroma of cherries, nuts and toasted malts. Flavour of sweet malts, nuts, caramel, tannine, cherries and nuts. Belgian toffee as well. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a rich, malty, fruity and sweet finish. Not really at it’s best condition as this is way too malty. Still enjoyable.

tiong (6481) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 10, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2012 Draught @ Fermentoren, Copenhagen

2008 vintage - Pours dark brown with a smooth white head. Aroma of malts, sugary syrup, vanilla, oak, ripe fruits and plum. Taste is very malty with a lot of ripe fruits, oak, wooden notes, plum and vanilla. Finish is oaky and wooden with a lot of malts. Tasty, but perhaps a bit too sweet and malty.

pushkinwow (2627) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2012
2009 33cl bottle from Premier Gourmet. Dark brown with a one finger mocha head that at first settles to a thin layer and then forms a small ring against the outside of the glass. Sweet malts, belgian yeast, alcohol, figs. Moderate to high carbonation, average body, little prickly from the alcohol, definitely more sweet then anything else, lost of fermented fruit, becomes somewhat alcoholic on the finish, along with some malts, yeast, and fruit. Good but think this could do with a bit more time so that it can mellow and become a bit more balanced.

77ships (8210) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 3, 2012
Draft @ ACBF 2012 // black brown with a thick mocha head // dark malts, sweet porto, liquorish, chocolate, very sweet (aging appears to add a lot of liquorish to this – 5 year aged one, I have had was a liquorish bomb), molasses, syrup, brown sugar, dark fruits, toffee, wood, almost booze in finish // touch slick, soft carb. excellent as you would expect but Grand Reserva is still better

Tap. Pours deep, tawny brown with a trace of off-white head. Aroma is caramel malt, figs, prunes, floral hops, black cherries, chocolate, and light port. Flavor is balanced malt and fruit esters with light supporting hops; semi-sweet finish with port undertones throughout. Full body, low carbonation, and high warmth.
