ogivlado (8569) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 16, 2018
Bottled 355ml. -from Bierhalle Deconinck brought by kajser27, thanks. Dark golden coloured, small to medium sized white head, alcohol and light yeast in the nose. Sweet malty, alcohol, yeast, fruits and caramel with notes of spices and alcohol. Slightly too sweet and boozy in the finish but well crafted brew.

DavidSvinth (492) - DENMARK - MAR 6, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2018 Fra flaske. Dyb orangebrun med hvidt skum. Intens aroma af malt og humle. Fuld krop med en del bitterhed og sødme. Ikke lige min stil.

onceblind (11698) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 1, 2018
Burnt orange hue under a thin white ring of foam. Bright raisin and candi sugar aroma with a decent pale malty sweetness. Strong Belgian pale malty flavor with a load of Belgian candi sugar and a hot finish.

Biroholik (1749) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 10, 2018
Alkohol: 10% obj.
Batch : 96
Słody: Pilzneńskie, żytnie
Chmiele: 10 różnych odmian chmieli
Kolor: Pomarańczowy, mocno zamglony.
Piana: Żółto-kremowa, bujna, okazała. Cały czas pozostaje na powierzchni. Powoli redukuje się do chmurki. Krążkowanie godne mistrzów.
Zapach: Aromat słodki, ale stonowany. Czuć wyraźne utlenienie. W powietrzu unosi się woń miodu wielokwiatowego, kandyzowanych owoców, karmelu i toffi. Sporo akcentów słodowych i przypieczonej skórki chlebowej. W tle lekka pikantność pochodząca od żytnich słodów.
Smak: W smaku przede wszystkim akcenty owoców. W pierwszym rzucie intensywne pomarańcze, grejpfruty i ich gorzkie skórki. Potem miód wielokwiatowy, toffi, dużo przypalonego karmelu. W tle masa akcentów przyprawowych, dużo chlebowych nut, pszenicy i pikantnego żyta. Goryczka ma umiarkowany profil, ale chwilami jest ściągająca. Fred ma średnią teksturę i pełne ciało.
Wysycenie: Średnie.
Podsumowanie:
Fred jest dobrym piwem i na tym się zatrzymajmy. Niczym szczególnym się natomiast nie wyróżnia. Dodatkowo został błędnie sklasyfikowany na RateBeer. Zdecydowanie bliżej mu do Golden Ale, niż do Barley Wine. Ma sporo owocowych akcentów, a w szczególności skórki pomarańczy, grejpfrutowa i innych gorzkawych owoców. Dużo karmelu, toffi, nut zbożowych i chlebowych. A na koniec tuzin przyprawowych i pikantnych detali. Alko nieźle ukryte, a cala reszta po prostu OK.

tapefuzz (1067) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 2, 2018
12oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy brownish amber with a negligible off-white head - which disappears almost immediately. Aroma is caramel, honey, toffee, some spice, some alcohol, and a little bit of red grapefruit-y citrus. Taste is sweet; bourbon, caramel, honey, light biscuit, spice, some herbs, some pepper, a touch of yeast, and some earthy wood. It's not very fruity, but there may be just a hint of candied grapefruit and candied peach. Relatively bitter pils malt finish. Full body. Soft but active carbonation - like lively carbonation covered by a blanket. Creamy, lush mouthfeel.

Quick3Beers (1662) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 25, 2018
Pours a clear brown from a bottle until you swish in the sediment. I'm trying to remember from earlier this evening as in the intervening time I seem to have gotten a cold, and now can no longer discern as much in the aroma and flavor. I remember it being rather complex, the barley wine sweetness quickly becoming herbally bitter. A layer of sourness from the rye was present as well. Good beer.

Werckmeister (3623) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JAN 19, 2018
12 oz bottle courtesy of Rob, big thanks. Batch 98. amber cloudy color, almost no head. smells marzipan, nutty, some ripe fruits, lightly musty, caramel, very nice smell. full body, no carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes ripe fruits, caramel, honey, molasses, peppery, some yeast, rather sweet. finishes medium sweet with notes of molasses, some fruits and sweetness. uhm, I can see why this was great 15 years ago, but in 2017/18 this is rather dated. Taste is not good, no balance, too heavy. Definitly dont drink this fresh, rather sticky mess.
