downender (9169) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2017
Bottle from Brewer's Droop, Bristol. Deep and hazy brown in appearance, with a tight, off-white, head. Aroma of brown sugar, prunes, almonds and vanilla oak. Full Mouth feel, with rich flavours of liquorice, ripe figs, gentle spicing, red berries, and a hint of chocolate. The finish was soft and spritzy, with warming alcohol lingering on. An excellent winter beer.

oberschlesier (311) - Kattowitz, UPPER SILESIA, - DEC 29, 2017
Aroma: Coke, some spices, belgian yeasts note. Taste: the same + quite high bitterness (influence of mix of hops&alc., but more hops imo, alc. doesn't bother me). Rather high carbonation and fine, big head (but with big bubbles).

Appearance: Pours unclear dark brown with a creamy tan head, no lacing. 3/5 Aroma: Chocolate, liquorice, nutmeg, caramel, dark fruits, cherry, date, raisin, dried fruits, malt and yeast. 9/10 Taste: Chocolate, roasted malt, candi sugar, syrup, caramel, cherries, ripe fruits, dried fruits, spice and yeast, with a touch of wood, rich and luscious. The flavour is quite sweet and fruity with a good level of alcohol to balance, make it hides the alcohol well.
