Bouteille 37.5cl @ Sebletitje’s Farewell Tasting. Orange, col blanc. Arôme au nez malté renforcé, touché de barrique, vin léger chêne, purée d’abricots avec un bouquet consequent d’laool et de fruits confits. Palais est épais énorme dose de sucre résiduel et une chaleur d’alcool très dominante. Raisin sec, abricot grille voire pruneau. Juste surfeit, et ne vaut certainement pas le prix, content de ne plus avoir acheté de Mikkeller depuis.

Thank you Sebletitje (?) / tderoeck (?)! 375 ml. bottle sampled @ Sebletitje’s Farewell Tasting. Blond, brief white patchy bubbles. Nose is extremely malty, sweet boozy orange peel, sugar, malt, faint esters, touch honey. Taste is very boozy, touch harsher than you would expect even for the ABV, orange peel, sugar, warmin, low honey, thick malt, fresh wood, some BE esters, thick sugar warming. Thick chewy malty sugary body. Bit too simpel but pretty nice beer, not the easiest one to drink.

375ml bottle from last night’s share. Hazy amber pour with small beige head. Sweet nose, fruity, a bit of booziness. Sweet malts dominate the taste, and then there’s the alcohol heat. Wow!. A big, big beer, and tasty too.

BuckeyeBoy (7387) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 14, 2016
375ml bottle pours out a cloudy copper topped with a sand head. Nose is super sweet pit fruit rich malts barrel notes. Taste is more of the heavy sweetness pit fruit rich malts nice barrel. Wow almost 20% this is money.

SlovakSniper (5525) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2016
Une robe qui n’a pas fière allure. Un nez de caramel, de bois et de vernis à plancher. Un goût de malts et d’alcool plus ou moins fruité et plus ou moins habile. Une bouche molle. Une finale chaude qui n’est pas plaisante. Ça commence bien mal. Ce n’est pas vraiment bon. Ceci dit, un échec qui pourrait être bien pire.

shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 3, 2016
Bottle. Aroma is super boozy, paint and meths. Almond and coconut. Too much. Full on alcohol. Taste is better, boozy still, but also fruity, apricot, sweet. Alright but not sure.

Bottle shared at Gremlin! Thanks Hamilton & Tohara-san! Happy birthday 4 months late! Big intense alcohol nose with brown sugar, caramel fall fruit and bit of paint thinner....full on for sure. Body is quite light with oak and more fruit: apricot, persimmon and more brown sugar notes. Finish is alcoholic with a lingering burn. Not very beer-like at all. Fun, but a lot to ask without friends.
