DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2008 In the requisite three-handled clay mug, Chagal, Brugge. Cant see the beer for the clay, but a 3 for the mug. Rocky beige foam. Clove peppering chocolate inviting malt and spice aroma. Hobnobby milk choc, cherrystone alcohol notes showing (thought it was 6-7 %!), coriander, liquorice, trace of roast, Leffe-like banana esters, chocolate afters. Peppery, malty and light a bit like a dunkelweizen. A 9% Dunkelweizen, apparently. Bit thin but tasty.

Bottle, Beer Ritz, Leeds. Poured a reddy nut brown colour with a decent creamy beige head. Aroma had dark fruit, coriander, sweet malt and caramel. The flavour was sweetish with malt, raisin, and a light bitter hop finish. Not too bad.

Borresteijn (6884) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2008
On tap @ Caf Gollem. Deep reddish amber colour, off-white head. Aroma of malts, caramel, fruits. Flavour is sweet, malts, caramel, fruits and iron. Too much "amber" flavours in there for me.

Grovlam (4208) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2008
Bottle. Average light beige creamy head that mostly lasted. Fair display of lacework. Color was amber copper like with some cloudiness. Aroma of caramelized and toasted malt, hint of iron and nice sweet fruity feel. Hint of spice and what could appear as honey. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and mild alcoholic texture. Moderated sweet flavor. Light roasted malty lingering caramel finish.

Lunkie (1923) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2008
Cherry malt smokey aroma quite suprising. Clear dark red colour with great head and lacing. Malt cherry flavour with rich fruit. Fizzy palate.
