Rune (12071) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle from Kihoskh, provided by Skinnyviking for the Absalon tasting session ’13. Devil-black body, tan-coloured head, spotty lacing. Smell of red wine mixed with dark malts. Vinous flavour joined by malts and a touch of lactose. Tart and sweet ending. Quite well balanced. Partially pleasing (hotel room, Copenhagen 26.05.2013).

Fin (10304) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle picked up somewhere consumed at Mums, Worcester, Thames, Friday 28th November 2014. Pours almost black with beige head.Tangy, tart with a nice fruity sourness. Red wine ageing showing, a real sipper is this. It is really zappy, fruity and tart. Really likeable but would have like a smaller bottle or to have shared, its hard going on yer’ own.

DuffMan (10070) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 24, 2013
Bottle shared at RBAG 2013. Very dark brown, pretty murky, with a light brown head that laces sparingly. aroma is distinctly bretty with rich roast and light sour cherries. The palate delivers funky sour edges to a solid lovely stout base. Really tasty. as an aside, I find it interesting that at 8.5% this beer is listed as a stout, whereas the Fort Garry Kona Imperial stout weighs in at a whimpy 6.5% yet is designated "imperial". Not that it matters, but it seems pretty arbitrary.

KyotoLefty (9982) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 13, 2013
Draught at Delirium Loft Brussels. Acidic, lactic nose, vinegar, chocolate, cherries. Great, complex nose. Pitch black with a super fine tan head. Flavors of chocolate, wood, vinegar, yogurt. Very tangy, lots of chocolate. Good, not completely exciting, but good.

olio (9941) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2013
50 cl bottle @ PBF 2013.
Pours deep dark ruby red color with a small off-white head. Aroma of sour fruits, dark berries, some wood and hops. Flavor of sour dark berries, faint malts, and some bilberries. Sour and somewhat one-dimensional but excels at that.

sebletitje (9910) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 25, 2012
50cl bottle, BB 2016, cheers David for the bottle. Brune foncée, col léger moka laissant un léger filament huileux sur le verre. Arôme est malté moyen avec cette pointe de barrique-chêne et un bouquet de brett léger se mariant parfaitement au côté malté. Ce dernier tire vers le caramel et grillé De fines effluves de vin rouge et fruits sont à noter, le tout est très bien en balance. Palais est agréable et ici le brett tout comme le vin rouge, barrique et malt sont en belle harmonie sans que aucuns ne prennent le dessus. Malt est dans le style grillé/caramel pour un fini assez sec de vin rouge et fruité arrivent en retrait et sont complétés par le brett qui vient donner une pointe d’aigreur-funk subtile à la douceur du vin rouge. Le boisé complète le tout avec une pointe d’épice. Le tout reste léger malgré les 8.5% facile à boire et bien complexe. Je ne sais pas ce qu’il se passe chez Mikkeller mais ces qcq dernières bières BA m’ont très bien plu ce qui n’était pas trop le cas auparavant.
