Kleurplaatje (213) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2017
Pours dark brown with a minimal brown head. Aroma is roasty malts, dark chocolate and something that I would call autumn-like. Liquor-like, but in a mild manner. Taste is chocolate, red wine, hazelnuts, wood and mild sugar. Finish is mildly sweet with dryish tones near the end. Medium bodied, oily texture. Not a great BA brew, but far from unpleasant as well.

Zlotta (4244) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2017
Sampled from 0.33 l bottle at Best Western Woerden. Black with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, beige head. Moderately sweet, malty and slightly roasty aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla and some licorice. Moderately sweet, malty, rather roasty taste of dark chocolate, coffee, licorice and some vanilla, followed by a long, rather roasty-bitter, earthy-dry finish. Medium to full body, creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice!

SinH4 (6909) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 24, 2017
Bottle. Dark brown color with beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, not so much barrel for me. Taste is roasted, coffee, chocolate, some grains, there is some wood, earthy, and nutty. Medium carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Nice enough.

sjogro (5259) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2017

3.5
caesar (7465) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2017
Bottle from het Biermoment, BB 02-2022, 33cl sample. Dark color, short frothy quickly dying head. Aroma of roast and dark bread, red wine and raisins. Salty licorice in taste, peaty smoke, tannines, raisin. Dry tannine rich finish. Interesting beer. Not perfectly balanced, also a bit too dry and lacking some sweetness, but still not bad.

Countbeer (6589) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2017
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Almost pitch black body with a brown head thats quickly gone. Nose of roast, caramel, wood roast, prunes, spice, tobacco, raisin, lightly sharp... Flavour is roasty, chalky and light coal with a sharp and thinner edge. A bit young I guess and hardly and barrel aging noticeable... Aftertaste is light roasty, bit chalky and a hint of cacao... Low carbo, light watery mouthfeel, medium bodied. Please make sure your base beer has some soul, than age it, not for some weeks but for many months at a time... It’s decent but could have been a lot better...
