37.5 cl. bottle. Low fuffy and quickly disappearing off-white head. Hazy brown body. Mild roasted malt aroma and flavor with a hint of plums. Low carbonation, short finiish, little hops bitterness.

Sissio (1761) - 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.

Marduk (8499) - Reval, ESTONIA - FEB 29, 2016
330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Very dark chestnut color. Medium size, beige head, stays. Wet sheep skin, malty, sourish, yeasty in aroma. Sour, woody, yeasty, prunes in taste. Sour cherry stones in aftertaste. Sour crisp mouthfeel. Covers alcohol quite well.

330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)

On pouring a dark fruity aroma, rather nice, but in the glass there’s the sour thing going in. Some coconut aspect too. Taste just carries that sourness thing through first, but does have a nice sweet dark caramelly bready body too. I like the grains, but the sourness just rubs me up the wrong way. Lightish palate, does cover the 7.5% rather well, but I think the alcohol has been scared away by the sourness. As am I. A certain dirtiness to the malts. Does segue to a sour-brune cherry stone flemish thing in the finish later. But too much dirtiness, all in all.

Vignale (4054) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 16, 2016
Flaska från Beergium. Brun klar vätska med lågt småbubblig skum. Lite småbubblig munkänsla. En stor varm oud bruin med mjuk rund syra och en sötma som balanserar den riktigt bra. Körsbär och russin dominerar smakbild med lite trä och honung i bakgrunden och en tydlig kärnbeska. Riktigt trevlig.

tarmok (1434) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JAN 9, 2016
Chestnut colour liquid with thick frothy head. Aroma of coffee. Tastes medium sour, light bitter. Light body, creamy feel,

adodo (182) - Riga, LATVIA - JAN 5, 2016
Almost wine like aroma: sweet and fruity. Very dark brown/black. Little head. Heavy sweetness, heavily sour. Very nice, interesting and suprising beer.

"brown" sour aroma, burnt sugar maybe? Intense rainbow of mild sourness. Can’t feel the alcohol. Sourness gets too intense but still not too much. No foam. Rich brown colour. Unique taste.

Tasting bij mij thuis. Salmiak en appel, gerst-zoetigheid. Lekkere knalkurk! Backlog from 2014/12/12.
