Theydon_Bois (9993) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle shared at Craft Clerko, from thanks to Paulo - he had 5 guys the other night apparently ! 25/10/13. Lightly hazed chestnut brown with a thin light beige covering. Nose is dark fruits, toffee, oaky wood, tarte fruit notes, red wine, jammy soured berry mash. Taste comprises brown sugars, jammy fruit, booze soaked oak, red wine streak, dark tofffee. Full bodied, fine carbonation, light warming alcohol in the finish. Decent enough Quad, could not believe this was a 14% big boy - very well integrated.

adnielsen (9481) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle @ home, thanks to Lukaduke for sending! Pours a deep orangish red appearance with a lasting, foamy, dark brown head. Really complex nose. Cinnamon, plums, prunes, red grapes, apples, dark chocolate, and caramel in the the nose. The spicy cinnamon booze in the nose comes off like a mild form of Goldschläger. Medium body. There is some note of the booze but it’s not too strong. Kind of tastes like a tannic red wine that has some additional brown sugar and toffee. A fair amount of dark fruits as well as leather. The carbonation is a little dull. Some light oxidation. A little bit of residual sugar in the mouth after the finish. Damn, this is fine beer.

pivnizub (9039) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle: Murky brown, small off-white head, solid sweet fruity (plums) and molassy nose with a tinge of alcohol; sweet flavour with a discredt bitterness, full bodied, what else; sweet plummy finish, malt and molasses, too plus a tinge of alcohol. The perfect light thirst-quencher…

Meilby (8274) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 9, 2013
Draught @ Haand Ølfestival 2013
Pours slightly hazy brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, dried fruits, oak, alcohol, and brown sugar. Taste is heavy sweet and light bitter with a long sweet, oak and fruity finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat.

JorisPPattyn (8041) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 7, 2012
Short-lived cream-pink coloured head over deep brown beer with a foxy sheen. Very fruity nose, part cherry, part sugared preserved cherries, roses-flowery. Quite vinous in character, as sweet dessert wine, if a red one. Still sweet, but with a bitterish woody streak. Fruity, with a little sourish edge, which brings it to a superb balance. Again red wine like, if way less sweet than suggested by the nose; Retronasal something like old carpets, but much nicer than that sounds. Very slick, medium to well-bodied, serious alcoholwarming. Aftertaste has again a sweet cherry & roseflavour. Great balance. Arguably the most complex beer Alvinne ever succeeded.

crossovert (7977) - Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Tons of dark fruits, quite vinous, tannic, oak adds some subtley. A nice one in this series.

Scopey (7455) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle shared at Craft Clerkenwell. It pours deep brown with a small off-white head. The nose is earthy, wood, berry, vinous, jammy, dirt, vanilla and toasted coconut. The taste is sweet, juicy berry, dark fruit, vinous, jammy, red grape, wood, alcohol warmth, earth and mild toast with a dry, vinous finish. Med-full body, fine carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. Pretty jammy and vinous. Pretty decent, but perhaps a touch sweet.
