Vells (1631) - Rîga, Latvija, LATVIA - JUL 24, 2016
Too much weird yeastiness even for Belgian, seems going to Sour Red/Brown style. Otherwise rich maltiness in background, toasted caramel, nuts, licorice, overripe fruits, berries. Moderate sweetness with hints of tartness and light bitterness Still drinkable and OK, but it shouldnt be like this.

guzgorog (761) - FRANCE - JUL 15, 2016
Belle robe brune caramel, mousse blanche abondante de faible tenue. Nez "acide" : pomme verte, bois, malts torréfiés. Attaque légérement acide, léger côté vineux, bois, pomme, cidre, malt caramel. Bière un peu étrange, un peu acide, faisant penser aux vieilles brunes flamandes.

Batavi (366) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2016
Geproefd tijdens proeverij, bij de Vinotake, uitgeschonken in een Struise BD proefglas. Troebel donkerbruin bier, met een beige schuimkraag. Aroma's van karamel, granen als rogge en gerst, bruin brood, nootachtig, Belgische gist, chocolade, donker gedroogd fruit als pruimen en vijgen. Het smaakpallet is licht zoet/zurig, Belgische gist, cacao, licht peperig, fruitig licht zurige kersen, en lichte aardse smaken van zoethout en bladeren. De carbonatie is medium met een licht nootachtige droge afdronk. Een bier met een interessant aroma en smaak, deze ga ik nog eens halen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sissio (1363) - Orsenigo, ITALY - MAR 7, 2016
Bottle at home, clear brown, rocky light brown head. Malty and passito wine in the aroma, dry fruit, raisins, caramel and honey, nutty. The carbonation covers the nutty caramel malty chocolate notes with a soft licorice root ending. Unfortunately.
