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.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dark brown with a reddish hue, almost no head and a tobacco and dark fruit aroma. There is a raisin and red wine flavor, just like it says on the label, with a fruity finish.complex and very tasty.

larsga (6240) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2012
Smallish beige head. Hazy deep brownish red body. Fruity vinous sugary aroma with wooden notes. Dry-sweet wooden fruity taste with funky caramelly notes. Fullish body. Hot, rounded, smooth mouthfeel. Dry-sweet roasty wild berry and fruit aftertaste with peppery vinous wooden funky notes. Traces of wine grapes, earth, spice and menthol. Complex, interesting, and unusual. Subtle, and full of flavours. Wish they’d sold it in 0.25l bottles though. (0.5l bottle, wine monopoply, Vika, Oslo.)

Rastacouere (6134) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2012
Dense caramel ice cream and cookie dessert hits on the nostrils with just a whisper of alcohol, certainly less than I would have expected from a 14% brew, in the nose at least. A broad little fruit array is quickly ventured in, earth cherries, marmalade and peaches are all visited every other whiff. The rich and sweet type, halfway between liquid chocolate and port wine and yet with this alcohol level, you would have thought that a fair attenuation had been reached - perhaps, but there’s plenty of complex sugars remaining. While little head formation punctuates the pouring motion, in mouth, the carbonation is initially fairly active, though it slowly diminishes to leave a more liquorous texture after the beer has been sitting around for a few dozen minutes - which is almost inevitable if you drink a bottle by yourself. Raisiny, chocolatey, caramely, very desserty palate. Fair oak character with noticeable tannins, but not to the point where I feel the smooth, silky, currant-like Pomerol character is highlighted very much. That’s something rare enough in beer that I would have enjoyed it to take more room; it is tough for a sweet dark Belgian beer to make an overdose of balancing gracious tannins. An interesting recipe, but not one I’d like to revisit very often considering the price tag and rarity.
