hirigalzkar (3166) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 25, 2017
Bottle. This really is a mix of a sour ale and a belgian strong ale. Sour, sweet and malty at the same time. Notes of milk chocolate, sour cherries and strawberries.

tmrmwel (2089) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2017
Bottle, 2009 cask strength, bottled 18.02.17, shared with Inbreak and Palme. Pours cola coloured maroon, with a small, creamy, mocha head. Aroma is dark wooden notes, leather and some cocoa, as well as light notes of musty fruit peel. Light to medium body, with very soft carbonation. Flavour is acetic, with wine vinegar, cherries, berries, and tannins, as well as wooden barrels, leather, nuts and some fruity notes. Dry earthy finish.

FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 14, 2017
330ml bottle (?, ?) bottled 18.02.2016
Lovely deep red, tight brownish head, settles to a ring. A somewhat stale aged aroma, quite oxidised (that’s litotes), woody, some sourish aspects. Did even get an acetic whiff once or twice. Light sweetish caramelly flemish brune taste at first, but there’s a huge marmitey aspect too that quickly takes over, black and tarry. Light palate, pleasant crisp carbonation. Finish savoury and marmitey, some ashy dryness. At least there’s no sign of the alcohol, the barrels have fortunately not doped the drink with any prior contents. No real evolution in the mouth, no fruitiness, actually rather a dull sour ale. A blend that doesn’t really work, or at least ageing that didn’t really work.

olio (10289) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 26, 2017
33 cl bottle as "Aardnon 2009". Bottled on 18.02.2017.
Rated on 20170520.
Pours dark red-brown color with a small head. Aroma has ripe fruits and caramel, sourish berry notes and wood. Flavor is sourish ripe fruity with malts and earthy tones, and even some spices. Complex and demanding brew.

lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 20, 2017
330 ml bottle. 2009 version. Pours a dark brown colour without a head. Aroma of balsamic vinegar, red berries, some graininess and raisins. Flavour of red berries, vinegar, syrupy sweetness, vanilla and wood. Medium bodied. Dry and acidic finish. Aardmonnik is better.

laiti (8481) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 20, 2017
33 cl bottle @ olio, bottled 18.02.2016
”AARDNON 2009” on the rather simplistic label. Lot N˚BA00018022009
Aroma has vinegar, chlorine and moldy cellar. Also mild syrupy tones. Flavour is somewhat acidic with moldy cellar, balsamico, vinegar and grapefruity tones. The mold unfortunately ruins the show here. Quite a disappointment.
