DijkBier (305) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2017
Clear ruby brown pour with tan head, that quickly diminishes. The aroma is dark malts, sweet, caramel, vanilla, brown sugar. The taste is also quite sweet, with the same elements (roasted malts, brown sugar, caramel), but also some plums and raisin. Its a nice beer, but I hoped for more richness regarding the sugary taste, and for more balance in the bitter; now its a little too sweet for my taste.

ElDesmadre (3625) - Mikołw, POLAND - DEC 21, 2016
Draught at the brewpub. Sweet, full, sticky, boozy in an elegant way, full malty, with notes of rhubarb and red fruit cake. Warming finish. Very good.

SinH4 (4164) - 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.
