Theydon_Bois (7944) - 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.

JorisPPattyn (7816) - 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.

Benzai (7322) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2012
Draught @ Borefts 12. Hazy orange color, small to medium sized off-white head. Smell malts, fairly sweet and slightly wood-ish. Taste malts, sweetish and winey. Nicely balanced. Medium to full body and relatively soft carbonation.

Meilby (7280) - 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.

crossovert (7008) - Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Tons of dark fruits, quite vinous, tannic, oak adds some subtley. A nice one in this series.

Thanks Glenn for the shares. Holy hell, found the holy grain of beer. A sipper for sure, but dman this is as close of wine being used to brinkg beer to a whole new level. Land van Mortagne was already enormous, but this takes it to a new direction. Couleur bordeaux, acajou voire pourpre sur un col léger beige. Le tout donne un bouquet énorme de Pomerol dont les notes de vin sont accompagnées par un malt caramélisé qcq sucres résiduels. En bouche, on reconnaît là ce mélange de barrique de chêne français et américain avec un Pomerol divin laissant un profile de vin chaud, sucré prendre le dessus tout en laissant à la bière toute sa place pour se développe. Palais reste doux sucré avec de brèves notes aigres fruitées de grappes de raisins qui rajoutent un plus, cela se note aussi en fin de bouche. Se boit lentement, se déguste à t°avec des vagues de raisin, de vin de cerise caramélisés qui attaquent le palais le tout est réchauffant donnant des notes de vin sur un léger boisé. Vraiment une bière de dessert à boire avec un bon morceau de chocolat.

Sampled this at Campground Brewdown 2. Pours a hazed brown with a thin white head. Soft caramel, toffee, light acid. Tangy and oxidized, malt, soft caramel. Tart, long chewy caramel into the finish.
