Ughsmash's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 17, 2012
1L bottle, not sure of vintage (at least 5 years old). Poured medium amber with a ring of looser-bubbled beige head. The aroma picked up warm, aged dark fruits, vinous notes, and molasses with accents of dry, earthy spices, rum, and juniper really deep down.. warm and well-balanced. The flavor found dark fruits, licorice, and lesser smoked malts at the core.. rye, dry, toasted earth, and candied fruit skins around.. belly-warming finish.. this showed some age, but it aged really well. Medium-plus bodied with lower carbonation on the palate.. soft and almost buttery across the middle.. this was really good.

SinH4 (3438) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - SEP 22, 2016
Tap. Ruby color with eggshell head. Aroma is bubblegum, spicy, toffee. Taste is more toffee, a bit estery, slightly boozy in the back. Feels heavy, quite a head crusher. Nice enough.

77ships (8397) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 19, 2016
Thank you for sharing people! Sampled bottled @ Gouda Winterbier Festival 2016. Deep red amber, solid tanned head. Nose is weird plants, vegetables & spoiled malts. Taste is spoiled moldy red fruits, herbs, sugar, old malts & plants. Weird messy & milky body. I quite liked the Grand Cru version but this one is an odd mess at best for me. I have no idea what happened here. Maybe a bad bottle?
