Demens (445) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 23, 2016
0,375l bottle. Very thick hazy dark brown colour with long lasting tan head. Aroma: Very rich, rasin notes first, caramel, nuts (especially almond when the beer gets a bit warmer), redcurrant. Not harsh, sophisticated. Taste: Oh yeah. Sweet and very rich in malts, thick syrup like drink. Than the high alcohol shows up with some tarty caracter (redcurrant) but just for a few seconds before the full pleasent bitter mouthfeel rules the feel. (almond) Than the sweet dessert like caracter comes again and it’s well balanced with the bitter tone. This is what I call a complex beer. Very thick and creamy the texture. Full body with almost no carbonation at all. Long dry and bitter finish (with the almond tone in the taste). Amazing beer for celebration times.

alteregoo (1451) - Kalisz, POLAND - NOV 22, 2016
Piana żółta, obfita i całkiem trwała. Barwa miedziano mahoniowa, opalizująca. Aromat średnio intensywny, słodki, likierowy - jest cukier kandyzowany, skórka pomarańczowa, keks, karmel, syrop klonowy, akacja, żywica... W smaku podobnie, dość słodkie, obok suszonych i kandyzowanych owoców, likieru i miodu jest wyraźna goryczka, iglaki, zest z grejpfruta. W posmaku lekka pikantność. Niskie wysycenie, oleista faktura, alkoholowe rozgrzewanie.
Fajny Barley Wine, faktycznie jest to amerykańska, bardziej chmielowa interpretacja, aczkolwiek faktura i aromat jednoznacznie wskazują, że nie jest to IIPA. Dla mnie odrobinę słabsze od To Øl - Mine Is Bigger Than Yours przez wzgląd na brak nutek czerwonych owoców...

ALIBALI (2122) - Kiel, GERMANY - NOV 14, 2016
Mal wieder ein dicker Brummer aus der Mikkeller Schmiede. Roggig, würzig, dunkelrotfruchtig, rosinig und sherryrumig....japadapadu...schwerwiegender Dufter, voll erdig britischer Empathie. Gerade der Trunk bringt dann auch noch viel brenzliges Lakritzflair. Garstig aber doch unwiderstehlich rund. Geschmacksexplosion par excellence. Mal wieder.

drjoeng (1291) - SINGAPORE - OCT 9, 2016
12%ABV. Barleywine. Poured out brown and rusty. 28ºSRM. Nose is sweet ripe citrus. Fresh ripe valencia oranges. Alcoholic on the nose. Mouthfeel is syrupy. Palate is sweet with candy, malt sugar, waffles with maple syrup. Hops are bitter, herbaceous. Finish is medium bitter and with that residual sweetness of honey or syrup.

3.1
libertine (433) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - OCT 3, 2016
Pours a murky burgundy with minimal head. Aroma is a sweet malty mess. Notes of raisin, prune and toffee. Flavor is also extremely sweet with notes of toffee, raisin and dark fruit. Medium body. Oily texture. Soft carbonation. Dry finish. At 11 bucks a bottle and from Mikkeller was expecting so much more.
