Mortlach (2182) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 6, 2015
750ml bottle shared @Brasserie 4:20 (Rome), thanks Dino! Pours brown/chestnut honey with a medium to light head. Aroma is vinous, mild funky, toffee, ripe fruits, chestnut, alcol notes. Flavour is medium sweet with a nice sour end, well balanced. High body, medium carbonation, a bit fizzy. Nice winter beer!

750 mL bottle at Dan's Downtown Tavern in Saline. The pour is a dark mahogany with a thin cap of tan head and no lace left behind. The aroma is different. There is a light sour funk and a gold fruit that is pretty good. There is a nice blackberry or blueberry. The flavor is sour up front with a dark fruit and a strong maltiness that kind of hides the sour and funk. There is a light malt on the back end that is well received. The mouth feel is a little soft with a sharp light carbonation and a lingeringly funky finish. Not too bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ARH (1121) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2015
On tap, poured into a tulip. The aroma is reminiscent of a dutch, sour apple pie with secondary wood notes, and some late fig and bread crust emerging as it warms. Its a brilliant, clear, deep caramel orange hue with a light, dense, white head that has a low amount of retention and a low amount of lace. A really nice, medium bitter,sweet, and sour balance. The texture is a bit on the thick side of oil with a light, zippy carbonation and a medium full body thats tart with notes of caramel apple pie, sour cherries, and a strong spice as well as secondary notes of slight citrus zest, oak, and a touch of coffee as it warms. The finish starts with a very brief, syrupy and burnt caramel but turns to a zesty spice and oak with a brief character of fig. Its dry and astringent with an aftertaste of bread crust, apple pie, fresh fig, citrus, and a late hint of chocolate. Quite clean for such a big beer.

Saeglopur (1929) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAR 29, 2015
750 ml, bottled 11-15-2012, shared by Mmahut at RB Tasting Vienna March Edition. Thanks!
Dark copper body, with a tiny, creamy, beige head.
Aroma of red wine, barnyard, dark and dried fruits, barrel notes.
Taste is more tart, with about the same aromas, but with the oak barrel more present.
Quite light, slick mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes tart, wine like, with long-lasting, dry oak notes.

Tasty! Much more a Sour Red/Brown in my opinion. Pleasant wine and barrel notes, with a nice fruitiness, but also tart. Really enjoyable, luxurious, quite heavy beer.
