SkillsFactory (711) - ITALY - MAR 11, 2017
Special Reserva 2007, aperta l'11 marzo 2017. Rossa limpida con riflessi color rubino, schiuma beige non troppo persistente. Aroma di susina, fichi secchi, prugna, aceto di mele, barrique. Al palato prevale la componente acetica, mela verde, barrique, cantina, finale legnoso ed acetico con una nota di fichi secchi e la prugna che accompagna tutta la bevuta. Astringente, molto carbonata, corpo medio-leggero.

Mesjasz (1482) - Lodz, POLAND - MAR 10, 2017
De Dolle Oerbier Special Reserva 2013 Pachnie trochę jak wnętrze browaru Cantillon :D Ogrom drewna, vanilia, wiśnie, ciemne winogrona, karmel, nuta dymiono-palona, czerwone wino, nieco funku. Nos jest tutaj cudowny, taka złożoność, ogrom nut aromatyczny, wzzystko intensywne o świetnie zgrane. Smak mocno wytrawny, lekko kwaśny, delikatna słodycz praktycznie tylko nadaje piwu kremowości i gładkiej faktury. Ciało nie jest za duże, ale to też przyczyną głębokiego odfermentowania. W smaku też ogrom się dzieje; jest bardzo winnie, są też dojrzałe wiśnie, dużo drewna, mokrej skry, nuta karmelu. Posmak bardzo wytrawny, taniczny, winny, długi i interesujący. W tle lekki i przyjemny alkohol, piwo ma w końcu 13%. Jeśli ktoś by dostał to piwo na ślepo, to nie ma możliwości żeby nie pomylił go z winem. Cudowny, złożony i pyszny trunek. Wybitnie do powolnej degustacji i cieszenia się każdym wąchnięciem i łykiem.

koleminer20 (3344) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 5, 2017
Bottle shared with ebone1988 for the Koleminer20 turns 3k and Ebone1988 turns 1.6k Bonanza. 330 mL bottle received in a trade with berntholer, vintage 2012, bottled 2013. The pour is a darker brown color with a couple shreds of ruby coming through. There is a thicker egg shell colored head that falls to a thick ring and film leaving a few spots of lace. The aroma is really winey. There is a strong grape fruitiness and a good wine barrel character to it that Im not crazy about. Its decently crisp and clean but there is a bright wine character. The flavor isnt as good. Its more wine forward with a heavy grape and a strong barrel character. This isnt really my jam. The mouth feel is crisp and clean and carries a good bit of carbonation and a lingeringly wine barrel and hint of grape on the back end. Its good, but its not that good.

ebone1988 (1792) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - FEB 5, 2017
Bottle shared with koleminer20 for the Koleminer20 Turns 3k and Ebone1988 turns 1.6k Bonanza. For the book. 2012 vintage, bottled 2013. Aroma is wine, barrel, sweet fruit, tart, sour, floral, good. Appearance is red brown, light brown head, mostly hazy. Taste is woody, some wine, fruity, tart, sour, eh. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, woody wine tart aftertaste. Overall, Im not as impressed as I thought I would be.

90 (391) - BELGIUM - JAN 27, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2017 Gedronken januari 2017; flesje van 2012: Mooie geur met tonen van van (wilde?) gist. Complexe zurige smaak in balans: licht azijn, lichte eik, licht zoet; rond en mooie tannine. In de afdronk iets jong, jonger dan 5 jaar oud bier zou doen vermoeden. Gedronken februari 2017; flesje van 2010: De smaak is doorleefde, gerijpter, en krijgt nu een 9.

BlazerT (1048) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JAN 25, 2017
Bottle. Sensoric. Brown, medium hazy with small, dirty white head. Good Head retention and poor lacing. Aroma with quite strong acetone, vinegar accents, moderate oaky character. Moderately fruity (apple), woody and citric. Taste is sweet (thats nice and surprising), later one semi-dry and finally lightly bitter and sour. For that ABV highly drinkable, just a slight warming (or maybe this is subjective). In summary really complex beer, youll find here everything - sweet, sour, dry, bitter, oaky, maltiness, some fruity character. Everything perfectly balanced. Outstanding.
