kapusil (1561) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 16, 2017
0.25l bottle. Hazy brown body with a light brown head. Aroma and taste of red wine, balsamic vinegar, cocoa and caramel. Like a strong Flanders red. Nice beer.

Gusher, though that may have been my fault. Big, pillowly tan head, deep dark brown. Nose is definitely a lot of red wine, red fruit, musty grapes, slightly lactic? This is supposed to be a clean beer I think, but it certainly smells a little funky. Flavor is rich plum, red wine, lots of oak, stewed fruits, but also lightened by a bit of horsey funk, clovey esters, a little tart as well. Finish is not as heavy as you would think, lightened by the tartness. Either this has soured or it was meant to be this way, but either way I'm liking it. Very complex, lots of dark quad flavor but a bit lighter from the funk and sourness. Delicious, love the red wine character, wonderful at almost on 5 years.

explosivedog (1816) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 25, 2017
250ml bottle. Bit of age on it, imported to NZ in July 2013 so a bit older than that. Pours black. Dried figs, brown sugar, dried cherry, biscuit, toast, raspberry, blackberry, blackcurrant, sour cherry, prunes, marzipan, chocolate, molasses, oak, sweet red fruit finish. Bit of booze to it. Certainly a little oxidation but I think it integrates well. Medium body with quite high carbonation. Absolutely delicious.

4.3
Fules (1425) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - AUG 22, 2017
Kicsi, tartós, bézs hab, sötétbarna szín. Halványan édeskés, vörösboros, aszalt gyümölcsös, szilvás illat, némi fahordós beütéssel. Édeskés, karamelles, sötét és aszalt gyümölcsös, vaníliás, fahordós, vörörsboros ízvilág. Testes, a gyümölcsössége miatt mégis könnyedén csúszik, közepesen szénsavas, enyhén keserű. Csodás kreáció, jó egyensúllyal, nagyszerű, egymásba simuló ízekkel.

4.3
kaserov (1102) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 14, 2017
Color marrón oscuro, opaco, con capa de espuma marrón claro de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación suave. Textura oleosa. En nariz hay mucha barrica, mucha madera, recuerdos de mueblebar, ligerísima acidez, un mínimo de alcohol (recuerda a algún Oloroso o vino de Oporto). En boca entra dulce, con mucha presencia de la madera, con contrapunto ácido y dark fruits. Final licoroso y con mucha madera. Madera empapada en boca entre trago y trago. Sensación alcohólica en todo momento pero sin llegar a quemar o molestar lo más mínimo, verdaderamente fácil de beber.

Sit in front of a fire and contemplate life. Wow. Aromas of muscat. Sweetness but not at all sickly. Savour; you're lucky to be drinking this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Svesse (8942) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2017
(Bottle) Dark brown colour with hints of ruby. Lasting beige head. Fruity, malty nose with dark fruit, cherries, caramel, chocolate, orange peel, black rye bread and hints of red wine. Malty, fruity, slightly tart taste with notes of cacao, dark chocolate, sour cherries, red fruit, blood-orange, liquorice, black rye bread, oak wood, red wine, spicy hints of tamarind and a tart, vinous finish with a balanced bitterness. Almost full body, with a touch of sweetness. Quite complex, with both chocolate, caramel, red wine, cherries and a slight sourness. Still in very good balance, and really tasty. Excellent beer.

4.4
DwarfeD (3539) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAR 17, 2017
25cl bottle at home. Enormous gusher. Dark reddish brown with a full off-white head. Medium to full body with low to moderate carbonation. Well balanced complex bitter and sweet brew. Oak, raisin, wine, red fruit, vanilla and grapes. Very good.
