Bottle from batch 742. Hazy deep copper color without head. Aroma of bubblegum, candy, vanilla with notes of apple juice. Very sweet and a bit sour, complex taste. Just some initial bitterness. Medium body. A bit oily feel. dorain (483) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 29, 2017
Aus der Flasche (bottled 2011-12) im 2016-11 getrunken. Dies hebt sich deutlich durch seine japanische Sake-Hefe ab und kann doch mit klassischen Noten dieses Stiles überzeugen. Ein sehr edles Teil. Korcz (3389) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 7, 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!!

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 (1066) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 30, 2016
Look: cloudy copper.
Aroma: brie cheese, bisquits, rum.
Taste: moderate to strong sweetness balanced with hoppy bitterness.
Flavour: cheesy and earty, dark fruits, some leather, some phenols.
Good. dnicolaescu (2642) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - AUG 24, 2016
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 (5139) - 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 (1002) - 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.
