bartlebier (3633) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 24, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2016 0,25cl pour @Braukunst Live München 02/2014. Pours a deep aubergine brown. Aromas of raisin, sweet malts. The red wine cask has a powerful imprint on tannin-dry palate, spicy Australian red and dark berry notes overpowering the roasted malt toffee or hop spice. Mild and suave blend, very easy to drink, but will hopefully gain in proper "beer character" a bit with age. // Resampled aged bottle bb12/2017. Smells like a vinous Bernardus. Cranberries, cooked stone fruit, redwine in flavour...leaves behind a bit of a furry wine tongue and carries some of its fusels. Standing by original rating, not a Top 50 Abt for me, impressive as this collab beer’s story might be...

bjerkeaa (180) - NORWAY - FEB 14, 2014
Dark brown pour with insane carbonation. Please watch out, when you open this one up. Bottle doesn’t say any specific serving temp, but I opened it a slight bit above 12 C. The spray almost reached the roof. Anyway, dominant aroma of berries, almost sour-like qualities. Quite pleasant. Taste is more like a sour/coffee stout, with emphasis on the latter. A very weird mix of some coffee roast bitterness, mixed with the aforementioned berries. Works out excellent, in some weird way. Must try, pretty unique.

fletchfighters (1449) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2014
250 ML bottle Really hard to say this was a quad as came out more like a big sour. Big explosive head, murky brown color, light tan head. Three finger height. Nose was citrus, red wine, sourness, sultana, oak, brown sugar and dark fruits. Taste is dominated by the barrel and the sourness of it. Lots of red wine and tannins followed by lots of sourness. Medium carbonation, really light bodied and easy to drink. Great beer from Australia that not many know of

Finn (6824) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2014 Flaske 0,25l fra Vinmonopolet, Tromsø Sentrum. Batch 860B. #00607. Skibotn 4 Mai 13. Dyp mørkebrun. Kjempehøyt luftig skum med litt farge. Litt lacing. Svakt syrlig aroma. Smaken friskt syrlig. Overraskende. Stikkelsbær? Myk munnfølelse. Smaken behagelig syrlig. Blir litt uvariert. Litt sedimener igjen i flaska. Alkoholen godt kamuflert. KI=3

Boutip (6097) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle: Poured a deep cloudy brown color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of strong residual sugar with some vinous notes and some dry fruits notes. Taste is also a very interesting mix between some residual sugars; some brown sugar notes with some vinous notes which kind of re-balance the sweetness. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Interesting but I would be really curious to taste this beer without the red wine notes.

Koelschtrinker (18386) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 23, 2014
Leicht süßer Antrunk, leichte Holznoten. Dunkel herb, wenig aromatisch. Minimale Säure. Rundes, vielleicht etwas zu mildes Imperial Stout. 11/9/9/9//10

lusikka (7757) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2014
250 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with an off-white creamy head. Aroma is rather rich and complex with red wine, wooden notes and tartness. Flavour of caramel, bread, musty yeastiness, tangy red wine notes, wood and berries. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Aroma is rather nice, flavour isn’t that good unfortunately.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 2, 2014
bottle from the great nogne o stall at braukunst live 2014. dark brown with a reddish tinge and a gentle tan head; vinous aroma hinting at red berries and a light woody funk; rich texture; subdued yeast flavours with good old aussie cab sav earthiness, plums, faint treacle sweetness. delicious and complex stuff from what must be a strong candidate for best australian brewery at the moment

Vighals (3471) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - FEB 21, 2014
Mørk brun uklar med flott lys brunt skum som ligger helt ut. Lukter sure kirsebær... Surøl? Søt fruktig smak, noe sure toner men ikke surøl...

olio (9669) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2014
25 cl bottle.
Pours dark red-brown color with a medium sized beige head. Aroma is sweet and malty, distinct red wine also with wood and yeast. Flavor is also sweet with caramel, toffee, some distant red wine notes, wood and subtle yeast, lots of sugar also. Stuffy and sweet palate, nice aroma though.
