Cigar City / Mikkeller Swinging Harry Tropical Quad featuring papaya, mango, simcoe and citra hops and aged in grand marnier barrels with brett C. This sounds like a totally insane beer that is all over the place but in reality the fruit and crazy hops and weird barrel end up being really subtle and complimentary. A touch of tropical character here, a hint of orange there, but mostly all delicious brown sugar quad. The base quad style is a little on the less dark and rich side of say Gulden Draak which was somehow the right place for all the other fruit and hops to come in, all in all it was actually really enjoyable. The old school Pitfall! video game inspired label is sweet.

Beerheart65 (1503) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 11, 2016
Brown with bit ruby, creamy beige head and good lacing. Aroma has warm caramel malt, dessert spices (cinnamon, vanilla), mocca, dried fruits, raisins. Full and soft, sweet, sticky, smooth and chewy, low carbonation, alcohol as warmth more than as flavor, long finish, winey notes. Lots of nuances, balanced, great enjoyable flavors, very well done.

Cool beer - unique, fruity, yeasty and boozy. A little murky, but the flavor profile just really won me over. Baked bread, dark and light fruits.
