3.7
PowY (908) - AUSTRIA - MAY 26, 2017
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear dark copper with a quickly diminishing off-white head. The aroma is malty, caramel, honey, brown sugar and also some alcoholic note, slightly medicinal, glue. Full oily body with a low carbonation, a light sweetness and a medium bitterness. The flavor is very malty, honey, molasses, prunes, dates with a light alcoholic warming and a decent hoppy bitterness to balance the sweetish malt.

Pours a dark brown. No head. Looks like iced tea. Label has the date on it but I can’t read it. Sweet, sugary molasses aroma. Intermingled with liquor soaked plums and figs. Flavor is sweet but not cloying. Plums, digs, dates, and brown sugar. Malt driven is an understatement. There’s a touch of soapiness to it as well. Not much, if any, hop character. Barley wine similarities. It’s actually better than some barley wines I’ve had. Full mouth feel. It’s lush. More winter warmer or fireside brew than anything. Nicely done.

erikaraeb (262) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2017
Flavour-heavy with tastes of sweet molasses, yeast, and a touch of licorice. Essentially a german dubbel ale

ironcontra (367) - POLAND - APR 29, 2017
Somewhere between liquid bread and a belgian ale. Good balance between sour (umami?) and understated sweetness. As far as alco, wouldnt even guess it contained any.

3.6
wlf (677) - DENMARK - APR 29, 2017
From Freistädter; dark brown to black, unclear, with small to medium off-white to brown head; aroma is very sweet malty, caramel, dark malts, plums; taste is very sweet malty, dark malts, yeasty spicy, perfume, alcohol, molasses, herbal hoppy bitter finish; texture is sticky with medium carbonation and thick body

3.8
rodbod (398) - Motherwell, SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2017
Bottle from the Good Spirits Co Wine & Beer. Pours a slightly hazy dark brown witha short lived tan froth. Nose is intense malt loaf and fruit cake plus a touch of banana. Taste is treacle toffee, bittersweet. Palate is a little sticky. The alcohol is rather noticeable.

4.2
Cristobal37 (1176) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 6, 2017
Dark ruby muddy brown. Yeasty aroma, cherry, brown sugar aroma. Similar to the sticke, but somewhere between a doppelbock and English barley wine. Raisins, cognac, cherry, nice really tasty brew. Best Uerige hands down.

4.1
kapusil (1465) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 6, 2017
0.33l bottle thanks to Cristobal37. Clear dark amber body with an off white head. Aroma of caramel, orange zest, raisins and cloves. Taste of toast, orange zest, caramel, raisins, roasted malts and floral hops. Great beer.

3.8
nihtila (3754) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 22, 2017
Bottle at Great Grog fair. Dark reddish brown. Nose is almost like malt extract. Tastes very malty, sweet caramel, some fruitiness, almost knocking on barley wines doors.

4.1
bastarda (506) - Freiburg, GERMANY - MAR 13, 2017
kindly given by Impuritylaw, thanks a lot! at a blind tasting, I would have guessed this was a British Ale, with its nose of dark caramel, dark fruits and herbal hops and its malty body with rum raisin hints and quite some residual sweetness. Unique in this scenario is the dry finish and the moderate bitterness that is building up towards the finish and in aftertaste. A great beer I would absolutely drink again.
