lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, - DEC 24, 2007
Nice and rich chesnut coloured beer with great looking yellowish head. Aroma is a la mikkeller, exiting and interesting complex. It has hints of fresh birchwood, forest soil, bee wax, caramelized cerials, Grand Marnier, Hors dage Calvados de chez Roger Groult, nice refreshing hops, honey and old furniture. Taste is delightfull, strong and slight sweet malty. It also has a woody and earthy caracter with na boozy finish. In the finale there are nuts, dried leafs, carameized malts, some stonefruit pits and crispy green hops and herbs. Alcohol is presents but well integrated in this very complex calvados like barley wine.

eXORRO (170) - POLAND - JAN 18, 2017
Big white head. Sweet aroma: Licorice, red fruits, dried plums, caramel, some hops Very intensive. Taste is very sweet but not tiring because of high bitterness. There are caramel, malts, fruits, hops. Body is full, extremaly oily. Low carbonation. Fantastic beer!

mgajdaczewa (1858) - Katowice, POLAND - JAN 4, 2017
W aromacie słodowo, nieco karmelowo, nuty czerwonych owocw, chmiel kontynentalny, czyli lekka ziołowość, pozytywnie, ale bez szału. W smaku gorzej, płwytrawne, akcentw pozytywnego utlenienia tyle co nic, goryczka podwyższona, tępa, nieco szorstka słodowość, alkohol. Nie jest jednoznacznie złe, jest zaskakująco przeciętne, niedopracowane. Albo inaczej, staromodne. Kiedyś może i robiło wrażenie. Teraz robię meh.

Demens (322) - 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 its 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 (1147) - POLAND - NOV 22, 2016
Piana żłta, obfita i całkiem trwała. Barwa miedziano mahoniowa, opalizująca. Aromat średnio intensywny, słodki, likierowy - jest cukier kandyzowany, skrka pomarańczowa, keks, karmel, syrop klonowy, akacja, żywica... W smaku podobnie, dość słodkie, obok suszonych i kandyzowanych owocw, 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 l - Mine Is Bigger Than Yours przez wzgląd na brak nutek czerwonych owocw...

ALIBALI (1109) - Kiel, GERMANY - NOV 14, 2016
Mal wieder ein dicker Brummer aus der Mikkeller Schmiede. Roggig, wrzig, 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.
