tomekk1978 (1445) - Z±bki, POLAND - OCT 1, 2017
Aromat: na początku beczka, drewno, wanilia. Po chwili chleb, karmel, trochę melano i nieco chmielu. Alkohol dobrze ukryty.

Wygląd: barwa głęboko pomarańczowa, wpadająca w czerwoną, klarowna. Piana jasno beżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, umiarkowanej wielkości, ale dosyć trwała i ładnie zdobiąca szkło. To chyba najmocniejszy punkt tego piwa.

Smak: bardziej wytrawny niż słodki i raczej drewniany niż słodowy. Momentami wręcz wykręcający i gorzki, przez co odczucie w ustach pozostaje trochę nieprzyjemne. Nieco chleba, karmelu i suszonych owoców jest ale trzeba się przebić przez to drewno.Alkohol jest już tym razem wyraźny. Krągła pełnia, umiarkowane wysycenie i owocowo- drewniany posmak z wyraźnie alkoholowym i gorzkim finiszem. Nie jest to złe piwo, ale do wybitnych mu daleko.

ZodiacM (1280) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 23, 2017
LCI. Uit de fles geschonken. Een wat ongepolijste cognac BA barley, zoet-bitter, redelijk wat alcohol (cognac) houtsmaak. Iets subtieler en hij is echt goed.

Bottled. 15cl sample. The aroma has caramel, lots of dried fruits/raisins and wood. bit hazy, brown coloured beer with a thin head. The taste is sweet, with caramel/raisin, hint of vanilla, wood, little booze. Very full, nice one!

karpik (1406) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - AUG 13, 2017
Lots of dried fruits in nose including figs, dactyls, raisins, prunes, peach and apricot. Some caramel and wood as well. Pours dark brown with nice white lacy head. Taste is sweet with caramel, figs, raisins, dactyls, prunes, peach, apricot, again very fruity with subtle woody notes. Medium herbal bitter finish, average body, soft carbonation. Overall very good sipper, the barrel is there but not overwhelming great base beer.

3.5
Beerhunter111 (22508) - P´Castle, GERMANY - AUG 8, 2017
Bottle shared at Chris & Ruth´s House. A almost clear reddish dark golden beer. Aroma of dark riped fruits, vanilla, wood. taste of dark riped fruits, wood, vanilla. A bit boozy, okay!

2.7
larsga (7656) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2017
Small beige head. Barely translucent deep dark red body. Funky earthy aroma with dirty roasty notes. I can’t name it, but the aroma is typical of dark beers which have been in wine barrels. Sweet dirty herbal taste with earthy roasty notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, flat mouthfeel. Sweet herbal roasty aftertaste with earthy notes. Weird flavour with surprisingly little complexity. Very hard to like this beer. (0.33l bottle, not sure where from.)
