jerohen (2065) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2006
Bottled, 0.5 liter BB August 2006 (sampled december 2006). Clear amber brown coloured. Malts and fruit in aroma, some notes of port-wine. Sweet malty flavour with some notes one normally finds in aged trappist ales, i’m not sure how to describe it though. Very nice balance, lasting finish. Good beer.

Tranquillity (1453) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2006
Smells of sweet dark bread. Brown colour, average thickness of the head. Taste of butter and cloves, very satisfying. Untunately the finish sort of stops in the middle.

500ml bottle from Utobeer. Ruby red beer with lasting beige head. Dark malts and charcoal on aroma. Nice toffeeish choc flavours in mouth. Some dark fruits. Rounded. Some dryness on end. Good dunkel, very drinkable and would easily have had another bottle.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2006
Bottled. Dark reddish brown color, decent head. Sweet aroma of munchener malt with hints of caramel, nuts, licorice and pine. The taste dryer, but still malty and caramelly. Some resinous aroma and flavor like in the real ales hopped with East Kent Goldings. Some bitterness and mild roasted tone in the finish.

Bottle (from Bitter Virtue, BBE Feb 07). Caramelly malts and a hint of coffee. A little thin and one dimensional in flavour but still pleasant.

bells (4) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2006 does not count
When poured it displays a slightly off-white head over a deep red/brown beer. Excellent malt aromas displaying molasses, rye, spices (cardamom?) wood smoke and earthy/dirty tones. Initially sweet on the palate with more grainy, rye malt characters with the uncomplicated dusty/dry-grassy bitterness developing mid-palate. Some sourness and astringency follows to balance the sweetness and leave the palate revived. Quite a substantial mouth feel yet not overwhelming with fine carbonation for balance. Long lingering aftertastes of malt sweetness and alcohol give a warm pleasant finish.
