Filipbeer (160) - - MAR 24, 2017
Barley wine with a strong liquor aroma (sherry wine). Not bad flavor but unbalanced due to an excessive liquorous note. Intense taste and aftertaste

Ungstrup (36189) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2017
Draft. A hazy dark Amber Beer with a beige Head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, Port, grapes, Wood, and prunes. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, caramel, Wood, sine, and over for fruits, leading to a dry finish.

hawthorne00 (3754) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2017
Bottle. Clear deep amber with a good coat of beige head. Aroma of fruitcake with just little edge of recently decorated room. Lots of dried and macerated fruit, bread. Alcohol and other fumes are fairly prominent. Sticky but perhaps less body than expected - maybe its the paint thinner. The hints from aroma become more obvious upon a sip: as well as dried fruit and strong bread theres quite prominent solvent notes. They mostly go after a time, consistent both with fumey things dissipating but also with knocking back a big glass of barleywine. It does dry out a bit and finish with firm but not excessive bitterness. Wood creeps up. Interesting but not convincing.

Davros (3028) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 17, 2017
Pours brown with a small head. Nose shows fruitcake, sherry, figs, sultanas and soft booze. Flavours include sherry, woody notes, sultanas and golden syrup.

alteregoo (1235) - POLAND - FEB 1, 2017
Piana niewielka, nietrwała. Barwa cmiedziana, opalizująca. Aromat alkoholowy, lekko winny, lekko sherry czy porto, lekko rozpuszczalnikowy, parkietowy. W smaku płwytrawne, jest troszkę kandyzowanych owocw, suszonych fig, karmelu, ale głwną nutą jest bejca, lakier, bimber... Niska goryczka, bardzo niskie wysycenie, lekko oleista faktura.
Coś ewidentnie poszło nie tak, alkohol może nie jest palący, nawet nie rozgrzewa za mocno, jednak jego zapach, posmak dyskwalifikuje walory całości. Do edycji 2013 nie ma startu...

Korcz (2409) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 29, 2017
Bardzo słodkie, dużo ciemnych owocow, sherry, słodyczki, karmelu itd. Znakomite i przerażająco pijalne.

Vrsbe fordul borostyn szne van, egy hajszlvkony bzs habbal, kinzetre nem rossz. Alapjban vve az aromkkal sem lenne problma, legalbbis kezdetben, akkor ugyanis mg felfedezhető valamifle koncepci a padlson porosod aszalt szilvs, mazsols, desszertboros, fanyardes hangulatok kavargsa kzben, melyek all eleinte nem is olyan bnt mdon rppen fel nmi zavaros, vegyszeres, acetonos buk. Idővel azonban egyre inkbb sztcssznak az illatok, eltoldnak valami tmny, fehren s vkonyan, testetlenl alkoholos irnyba, amely egybknt sem tl bizalomgerjesztő; srről lvn sz, radsul ilyen kllemű főzetről, ez esetben mg kevsb hzelgő. Szval az aromk tern akr j is lehetne az ital az emltett htrltat tnyezők nlkl, klnsen pedig azrt, mert valahogy mgsem lland mdon vannak jelen az illatokban, nha egszen kifogstalannak tűnnek az don fahords, dis vonalak, főknt akkor, ha a kortyolsa sorn szembeslnk velk. Az ze ugyanis ppoly hektikus, mint aromi, nhol egszen kellemesre rlelt elemek, cseresznyels, marcipnos, vrsboros teltsgű jegyek jelenlte, nhol vzna, faragatlan alkoholos kicsengs. Ez utbbi bnt hats klnsen az utzben rhető tetten; valami balul slhetett el azokkal a hordkkal. n azrt lekzdttem, s amennyire csak lehetett, figyelmen kvl hagyva a kellemetlen benyomsokat, egszen tűrhető srnek tartottam.

Nische (2098) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2016
Bottle from Etre. Pours dark rusty with off white head. Aroma and taste of earth, harsh bitterness, a bit of caramel, stale and woody. This beers a mess. Drain pour.

Lore (2503) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 25, 2016
hazy brown colour, some beige-ish off-white head; aroma of acetone, raisins, some cocoa, walnut and herbal liqueur; taste of acetone, herbal medicine (mixtura pectoralis), some chocolate and raisins; this chemical acetone in the aroma and taste is too much for me...well, it makes this beer almost undrinkable

FatPhil (15362) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 17, 2016
330ml bottle (Pothouse, Tallinn)
Misty rusty colour, couldnt pull a head. Wooooh, bit acetone aroma, and after that a huge sweet raisiny kick. Fortunately, the taste doesnt have that horrific solventiness. Alas it has alternative flaws that are no less unpleasant. Stale and sweet, woody in a dirty way. Flat palate, sweetish. Finish stale and oxidised. Classic case of barrel ruining, this is a mess.
