ALLOVATE (2981) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2017
Second of three, missing the first. Cheers to a good mate for sending this across a few years ago. Cellar temperature and into a snifter. Muddy brown and lifeless with heavy yeast sediment forming a sub-level oasis of fun for the daring. Deeply earthy, umami nose. Sprinkled with lashings of fish sauce, rubber, fresh strapped leather, Jarrah timber, muddy loam, light soy sauce and kecap manis; it might well be a salted salad in Thailand. Yeasty and sherryish on the palate. Salty with gammyish notes of toffee and praline; nutty, lightly piney woodiness under-served. Body medium and oily. Soft in carbonation. Vinous, drabby; low hop to nil at all. Taste is light smoke, caramel, beurre noisette, almond meal and muscatels with that hint of nước mắm just aiding the funk of this. Lasting ash and nước mắm with a mid to high recoil of residual sugars from all the nuances. Alcohol evident but masqueraded and hidden well. A smoky, sweet earthy risotto in a glass, with funk and junk not well but well incorporated. Not a mind bending experience, but a beer with prowess and dignity!! (25cL, gift from a good friend, #00398)

Bottle at home from storage. Pours a brownish red, no head. Aromas near second edition, dry fruits, raisins black cherries. Light sour, light sweet. Better control of alcohol taste than second edition. Lovely

Rating #2212 - 2015.12.02 - Beer School @7Degrees. Pours a bubbly ruby colour with a decent off white head that fades rapidly. Aroma is feet & cheese, caramel toffee malt, dired fruit, raisin, prune. Lots of similar flavours on the palate, lots of floral notes, and a bit of a syrupy, boozy texture. Neat.

artemb (843) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 30, 2016
Look: cloudy copper. Aroma: brie cheese, bisquits, rum. Taste: moderate to strong sweetness balanced with hoppy bitterness. Oily body. Flavour: cheesy and earty, dark fruits, some leather, some phenols. Sweet finish. Good.

Shared BOTTLE 25 CL. Hazy amber, almost no head. Big fruit upfront, then goes old smelly cheese and a good deal of band aid. The taste is much sweeter, creamy malts, hints of band aid and burnt paper. Bit of grassy hops - just a bit. Interesting. And overpriced.

MarcoDL (4624) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2016
Bottle. Red brown color. Aroma has caramelised malt, raisin, mild pine and ripe fruit. Rich taste of caramelised malt, ripe fruit, spicey yeast and a little cardboard unfortunately, seems a bit carbonated. Still nice, special and creative.

bunget (929) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2016
Sampler from a bottle. Cloudy red-orange dirty body, no head. Aroma of caramel malt, old cheese, plums and rotten fruits. Taste of beet juice, sugary malt, yeast, plum butter. Flat and oily. Too sweet and simple.

Gerbeer (3533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 18, 2016
250 ml bottle. Pours a murky brown with dark floaties and little head. Aromas of brown sugar, bacon, and old malts. Flavors of same tending towards burnt meat and burnt sugar. Not a fan. Maybe too old.

Komeassa boksissa on erilliseen punaiseen paperiin käärittynä pieni pullo, jonka sisältö ei juurikaan vaahtoa lasiin kaadettaessa. Väriltään olut on melko keskiruskea, aavistuksen punertava. Lähes kirkas. Tuoksu alkoholinen, luumuinen, maltaisen toffeinen ja hiivainen. Maku luumuinen, toffeisen makea ja hieman alkoholinen ja konjakkimainen ennen kaikkea jälkimaultaan. Melko täyteläinen suutuntuma, hiilihappoja vähänlaisesti. Ei tästä eroa löydä kakkosversioon, kun ei maistele rinnakkain.

Bouteille de 250 ml dans un tube partagée lors d’une dégustation entre amis. Arôme: Odeur de caramel avec une très légère pointe de vanille. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée voilée. Saveur: Goût de caramel fruité avec une pointe de réglisse et d’épices. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence d’alcool en arrière goût. (Rating #7014)
