danielyabu (1551) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - FEB 15, 2016
Small frothy beige head. Virtually none lacing. Mostly diminishing. Sparkling thick flat dark brown body. Aroma: red wine, blackberry and light malt. Initial flavor: moderate sweet and light astringent. Final flavor: light sweet and moderate astringent; long duration. Also tastes like blackberry. Palate: medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation and moderate astringent finish. Reminded me of Gouden Carolus Classic. Stands out from the average. Gueuze-like sourness. Being stored in wine barrels gave it quite a vinous character. Sediments at the bottom of the glass. 200s USD19

hackobock (3686) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 26, 2016
January 26, 2016. Bottle, brewed December 20, 2012.
Slow gusher, dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is sweet caramel, vinous, woody, hints of tart berries, grape skins, some prunes, figs, light spicy. Taste is sweet malty, vinous, light sour. Finish is sweet fruity, malty with caramel, figs, prunes, vinous, light sour, some grape skin and light dry woody notes. Medium to full bodied, soft to average carbonation, quite creamy texture with a dry finish.
Much more wood, vinous and sourness than expected which wasn’t bad since it balance out the quite intense sweetness and makes it more drinkable.

Aroma is complex with some oaky red wine. Taste is woody, malty and super complex with some lovely red wine warmth. A hint of funk. Wish I kept the bottle to myself now!
