PowY (714) - AUSTRIA - JUN 24, 2017
330 ml bottle. Pours a nearly black dark red-brown with a quickly disappearing light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, though not too heavily roasted, with toffee, molasses, dark fruits, raisins, plums and noticeable alcohol. Full body with a low carbonation, a medium to heavy sweetness and a light to medium bitterness. The flavor is full of sweet, roasted malt with brown sugar, molasses, dates, raisins, chocolate, cognac hints of vanilla and woody qualities along with some alcohol towards the finish. A good beer, but for me the sweetness is a little too dominant.

fantti (1012) - FINLAND - JUN 2, 2017
Pullo @ Alko. Kaatuu snifteriin sysimustana, paksuna ja noin sormen paksuisella tummalla vaahdolla. Tuoksussa tuntuu Öön lakritsisuus ja soijakastikemaisuus lievän kahvisen paahdon kanssa. Lisänä perusversioon konjakkitynnyri tuntuu selvästi: hieman alkoholia, tammea ja ylikypsää hedelmää. Pehmeyttä saisi olla enemmän, tällaisenaan on turhan kovaa ja hyökkäävää. Maussa lakritsi ja soimaisuus tulevat heti alkumaussa, mutta pian tammisuus ja konjakkimainen ylikypsä hedelmäisyys valtaavat alaa. Pohjana olevassa oluessakin on hiven luumuisuutta mukana, kypsytyksen tuoma hedelmäisyys on enemmänkin hieman käynyttä hedelmäisyyttä. Suutuntuma on alkuun paksu, mutta tynnyröinnin makujen tuoma alkoholisuus terävöittää ja ohentaa tuntumaa aika lailla. Alkuun makea, mutta loppun kuivempi. Kokonaisuutena konjakin aromit on saatu hyvin mukaan, mutta ne tekevät tästä oluesta turhan hyökkäävän ja alkoholisen omaan makuuni. Mainio perusversio on huomattavasti parempi.

4.5
Lore (2671) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 26, 2017
dark brown colour, moderate sized dense beige head; aroma of dark chocolate, cherry liqueur, or rather cherry bonbon filled with liqueur, raisins soaked in cognac, and some vanilla; taste is the same, but still, somehow not as harmonic and perfect as the aroma...well, the aroma is just simply amazing! I can hardly imagine more perfect aroma and it is definitely in the top 10 aroma, I’ve ever felt...if the taste was similarly ’full’, this beer would be denfinitely among the best beer experiences of my life...
