pivnizub (10452) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - MAR 11, 2013
Bottle: Cloudy, deep chestnut-amber coloured, big beaten-egg-white-like off-white head, sweetish leathery nose with distinctive traces of dried black berries and a "medical" touch; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, full bodied; sherry notes in the sweet toasty and caramelly finish, that is followed by a solid bitterness in the aftertaste. Well balanced heavy brew, but where are the 1000 IBUs

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 5, 2013
375 ml bottle. Hazy dark greyish brown. Very coarse small head. Sherry-like peppery aroma. Low carbonation level. Nice hoppy bite mixed with oak and vanilla. Alcohol is definitely noticeable. The aroma is unbalanced and not particularly good, but flavourwise this beer is still pretty good after three years. 1000 IBU is not what I would first think of when drinking this. Its not that bitter. I would have guessed 50 IBU. Still, its a pretty good beer.

Yorker (1955) - Herning, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2012
Corked 37.5 cl bottle @ home. Pours dark brown with some sediment and an off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is peat, subtle smoke, iodine, and just a hint of hops. Flavour is peat, smoke, and subtle hops with a slightly bitter finish. A strange and original beer that is far from the regular 1000 IBU.

@ Mikkeller Bar: Fantastisk stor fatdoft, mycket god smak av kola och fat, nstan ingen humle(!) men tydlig whiskeysmak. mycket len och fin

gyllenbock (8684) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2012
Bottle at Mikkeller Bar, November 2012. A bit hazy dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma and taste of licorice, whisky, chocolate, some earth and fruit. Smooth mouth feel. A tasty one with a bitter finish.

Lowenbrau (3981) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle. Nice dark amber colour, with persistent tan head, creamy. Medium body, average to low carbonation. Aggresive bitternes, matured and balanced, but enjoyable.

garza (573) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - SEP 27, 2012
Pours a dark brown colour with a beige faint head. Aroma full of caramel, raw sugar, maybe honey and some fruity notes. Complex flavour with wood notes, vanilla, spices and a hint of fresh berries. Medium sweetness, medium bitterness. Full body, sticky mouthfeel, soft carbonation and a dry bitter finish. Excelent brew, but Im missing all the IBUs here. I was expecting more bitterness. Still very good and special choice.

daje (4245) - NORWAY - SEP 4, 2012
Bottle shared at beer tasting. Dark brown, big beige head. Aroma of pine, citrus and caramel. Taste is sweet with lots of caramel, some wood, and hops. Neither as good or as hoppy as the regular edition I think. The probably high bitterness is camouflaged by the heavy amounts of sweetness.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2012
At a beer festival in Melbourne, Aus. Deep amber body with a fine beige head. Powerful aroma that lept from the glass. Seriously bitter....aggressively so. The length of flavour is impressive with many variants along the way. Lovely and challenging all at the same time.

Martinus (4586) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2012
Clear brown colour, reddish hue, beige head. Malty aroma, wood and vanilla, caramel and subdued fruity hop notes. Madeira sweet flavour, malts, dark chocolate, caramel and coffee. Finish chocolate, coffee, light sour notes, caramel, and quite a bitter finish.
The hops bitterness seems to be quite mellowed by the barrel aging, but still a nice beer in its own right.
