luttonm (5042) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 29, 2016
Bottle at Beerville, Belgrade. Cloudy brown, creamy foam. Sweet herbal aroma. Rich leather body, coffee smooth roast, some banana ester, but roast-alc bite at finish. Quite nice.

anstei (1365) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAY 20, 2016
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Spicy and strong, almost like a liquor. Fruity, sweet, dark and dried fruit. A bit boozy, thick, heavy. Warming like a barley wine. Not sure I dig this combination, but it could just be me.

MelvinKalksma (1110) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, fruit, liquorice, spices, bread and roasted malts.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque ruby/brown beer with a slight/medium beige head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, fruit and liquorice; ends slightly dry with spices, bread and roasted malts.

Overall:
This beer tastes similar to a dunkler bock. Could have been more intense and could have more depth. It is extremely drinkable and has a good thick palate.

nybol (1540) - DENMARK - MAY 13, 2016
En balance mellem krydderier, rsitet malt og karamel smag. Specielt den krydret del af llen er rigtig god

Lore (2290) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 7, 2016
hazy brown colour, huge, dense off-white head; aroma of floral honey, walnut, dried plum and cherry, and some liqueur; taste is the same; great ale!

jamesie1857 (1964) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2016
330ml bottle poured in Bierhuis de Klomp, Delft - Red ruby body, little in the way of head. Nose is very herb-forward, with subtle notes of fruit and dark chocolate. Liquorice also comes into the taste, a bit bitter, some sour raisin at the back end. Odd aftertaste, but very warming.

rondphoto (4176) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAY 4, 2016
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Cloudy dark brown color, deep tan head that drops quickly to a light cover, no lace. Taste is chewy, syrupy malt with medium carbonation, followed by herbs and light bittering in a long warm finish. Surprisingly, the initial swallow tasted a lot like a somewhat flat Coke. Its okay, but a little goes a long way.

bartlebier (3556) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 29, 2016
33cl bottles shared by [email protected] ohne Stil-TAsting, Bierhandlung 2016-4, merci. - A balanced wealth of herbal, roasted and caramel flavours that soon become hard to trace in the palate-coating mix. Liquid diluted Ricola coughdrops, diluted with precision and spiced like a sauce reduction. Warming, with good-natured intent. Will revisit side-by-side with Gentse Gruut Inferno.

@bartlebiers weird beer tasting Bierhandlung/Apr.16; the essence of a beautiful morning of a great day to come, begun with bowl of porridge with ripe bananas and cup of good strong coffee. Lovely.
