Crosling's rating

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Holy hell. Complex. So much going on. Smokey, richly malty, with intense sweet dark fruit (acai, blackberry, blueberry,) chocolate, toffee, caramel. This beer is a damn meal. It has the dark fruitiness of a Belgian, the roast and chocolaty richness of a stout and the malt complexity of a good English Old Ale, with a touch of smoke, hops and a long, lingering finish. Its a prime candidate for 2-3 years of cellaring.

BVery (9788) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2016
Tap at Churchkey. Hell yeah. Dark brown pour - rich. Wonderful smoked meat aroma. Sweet taste, mild woody and boozy, but not boozy, you know? Not that cheap ass whiskey boozy, but a dark fruit / port thing rolling over oak staves kind of boozy. Rich and decadent. This rocks.

Saeglopur (1822) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - NOV 18, 2016
From bottle at CBF Wien.
Dark brown body, with a small, creamy, beige head.
Aroma of peat, cocoa, dark chocolate, some dark fruits, some coffee.
Tastes of dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, dried fruits, peat, some citrus, booze.
Full, creamy mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes roasty, citric, medium alcoholic, a bit wooden, with cocoa, subtle coffee.

Very nice. The nose is a bit too peaty for me, which I don’t like much, but the taste is really lovely, big, smooth and diverse. Quite heavy stuff, but a really enjoyable sipper.

BB log, Bottle in 2011-12 from Canals west Deptford, shared with Joe. Pours a pitch black color with one finger sized head. Smell and flavor of peat, smoked malt, nuts, dark fruit, and other candy sugar type sweetness but its also pretty smokey. Not my favorite style but alright

langeveld12 (467) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2016
Almost black very thick barley wine. Clear smoke and licorice on the nose, yet quite subtle. Dark roasted malts giving coffee, chocolate and roasted bitterness. Yet also sweetness and dried fruits. Smoke not too present. Alcohol well hidden. Wow!
