Sigmund (7818) - Tau, - JAN 14, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2013 250 ml bottle in silk paper and metal cylinder, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 12.5%. Sampled side by side with 2. edition. Deep reddish brown colour, clearer and slightly paler than the 2. edition, low off-white head. The aroma here is somewhat better, notes of red wine and red beets. The flavour is definitely better, vinous notes (fortified wine), hints of oak, nicely balanced bitterness in the finish. Warming mouthfeel, but slightly less alcoholic than 2. ed. Quite good stuff.

Bottle @ "X3 får skideren på af mange share (og brygger cider)". Pours red amber with a beige head. Aroma of old rice, ashes, metal, caramel and clay. Taste is like nothing else I have tasted before - in a bad way. Like playdough mixed with cigarettes, sweet malts and uncoocked rice. Naaaahhhh......

Klimaet (2958) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2017
Bottle shared @ X3 Får Skideren På af Mange-share. Pours clear dark brown with a small offwhite head. Aromas of barley, toffee, caramel, tobacco, soya, dark fruits, smoke. Taste has dark fruits, toffee, clay, earthy notes, tobacco, ash, soya. Fuck me this is bad hahaha.

Idiosynkrasie (7837) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2017
250ml bottle [#01618]. Cloudy, dark amber colour with a thin layer of beige bubbles. Slightly smoky, spicy, and sweet-ish malty aroma, notes of plum wine, sherry, hints of peat, marmite. a touch of blue mold cheese. Taste is sweet malty, peaty, slightly yeasty spicy, notes of plum wine, sherry, hints of peat with a cardboard touch, a marmite touch, hoppy counterpart struggles to fight the sweetness. Warming, alcoholic finish; oily to viscous texture, slightly sticky palate. Too sweet, but a nice, original sipper.

kingstoni (2145) - FINLAND - JUL 29, 2017
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 (514) - 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.

ALLOVATE (3055) - 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)

nudiebear (359) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 7, 2016
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

bulldogops (2726) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 23, 2016
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 (1129) - 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.
