"Magic Forest"
A malty barley wine with distinct caramel backbone, that evens out the high alcohol content and the resinous bitterness of wild rosemary, pine spruce and Centennial hops. Perfect for further aging.

Rask0lnikov (1682) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 10, 2016
Sample at TCBW 2016. Hazy amber colour. Quite high head. Lots of caramel, sweetness, herbal notes, spices, hints of berries in the aroma. First taste reminds herbal liqeur. Some burnt caramel in the middle. Really strong herbal finish. Some alcohol in the aftertaste.

sebletitje (10723) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 7, 2016
Draft sample @ TCBW ’16. Ambrée/cuivrée, huileux au verre, col crémeux blanc-cassé presque jaunâtre. Arôme au nez comme le dit le nom; pure forêt, sous-bois avec note de romarin, rétro de grains, mash-boil, caramel. Palais offre un profil conséquent de romarin sauvage, petite douceur persistante en fin de bouche, doux sucre roux, caramel résiduel, intéressant axé sur le cara pâle, et fin biscuité. Deuxième bière de cette brasserie qui semble perpétuer l’usage d’ingrédients atypiques centré sur des herbes locales lettonnes, et c’est tant mieux.

@TCBW Murky orange to brown colour with big beige head on top of the beer. Aroma has sweet caramel malts, some herbs, grass hops, pines and some weird candy. Taste is sweet with caramel and syrup, grass and pines with nice hoppy ending. Full body and medium carbonation.

Punkero (500) - FINLAND - APR 2, 2016
TCBW16. Crazy, fast leveling foam. Strong taste. Berries. Candy. Wild taste. Magical candy. Huh. Great as a late night dessert. Strange.

Jyrsa (1052) - - APR 2, 2016
TCBW. Red and hazy with whiteish head. Herbs, tequilalike nose with wine and the obvious rosemary. Sweet and wide bodied with pine and juniper. Might go well with pot roast.

Alusmamuts (2305) - LATVIA - MAR 24, 2016
Dark reddish amber. Sweet aroma with honey notes. Sweet taste immediately followed by very strong bitterness full of herbal notes. Bit too sweet for me. Strong lasting bitter aftertaste.
