Bamsen78 (3108) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy dark brown with airy light tan head. Clear aroma of fruit, malt, caramel, and alcohol. Bitter flavour of roast, coffee, and alcohol, gracefully complemented by sweet malty and caramellish touches. Hints of chocolate and alcohol. Sweetish aftertaste. Nice.

MiP (13596) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2014
Bottle, 10% as Vicaris Winter 2013. Surprisingly weak aroma, faintly fruity at most. Hazy very dark brown colour. Good stable brown head. The flavour is roasted and fruity. Good sweetness, balances off the alcohol well. Hint of salt. Late raw liquorice note. Incredibly well-balanced.

StoutHead (621) - DENMARK - JAN 3, 2014
75 cl. bottle. 2011 edition. Pours dark red with a 1-finger beige head. LOTS of yeast in the glass that ends up in all glasses after the first. Fizzes a lot. Aroma is of caramel, roasted malt, sugar and fruits. Taste is chockful of roasted coffee (lots), roasted malt, nuts, chocolate, sugar, spices and everything nice. Gotta say that it’s pretty dominated by the coffee though. Sweet with a bitter aftertaste of coffee. Medium body. Good, but a bit too much coffee in the taste for me.

750 c&c from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. As Vicaris Winter 2013. Pours darkly ruddy with a large creamy light tan head. Aroma is sort of dark malt and spice. Med + body. Flavor is sort of malty cola. With some hop. It is very nice to drink. Finishes less than dry, but that’s ok for winter. :)

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours medium brown with a huge beige head and a very pleasant coffee-like aroma. There is a smooth chocolate and dark molasses flavor with a bitter finish.

GSAP (490) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2013
Wilde mengelmoes van geuren als warm fruit, hout en kruiden. Smaak gaat pittig verder, chocolade en met kruidenlikeur als nasmaak die maar langzaam wegebt. Volle beige kraag op roodbruin. Waar is mijn open haard en berevel?
