Salmaneser (33) - BELGIUM - FEB 27, 2015
75 cl fles @ Landgoed Den Oker, Zomergem. Aroma wordt gedomineerd door de geur van whisky, bier is dan ook gerijpt op whiskyvaten. Daarnaast voornamelijk chocolade, die ook sterk doorsmaakt. Verder hinten van rozijn, drop, brood, ... Zeer donker, zoet, stroperig bier, weinig bittere afdronk. Best lekker, maar meer dan 1 glas zou ik er niet van drinken.

BlackHaddock (4593) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2015
6th Feb 2015: large sample from a 2013 vintage. De Bierboom (Brugge), cheers Filip for providing this lovely 0.75 litre bottle. Very dark pour to this spicy, strong ale: beige topping on the almost black body. The nose is all about dark fruits and malt molasses, sweet and interesting. The taste also dark fruits and malty, some vanilla and liquorice notes come through the sweetness: boozy feel with hidden spices in the finish. Far too easy to drink, and very pleasant in deed.
