Lukaduke (2658) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Pours a rich mahogany color with a foamy khaki grey head that rises up out of the rim. The nose is complex and inviting, dark molasses, soft caramel, plum, vinous fruit and touch of nutty wood. The palate follows with a soft silky smooth mouthfeel that rolls the complex flavors from front to back . Beautiful elegance and focused balance. Damn this is top notch quad !

Martinus (3638) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2012
Black colour, very little head. Aroma of roasted malts, red wine, port and chocolate. Rather dry, red wine flavour, astringent, vanilla. Dry, astringent finish. Quite lovely.
Definitely amongst the top beers served at Zythos. Nice one!
(From bottle @ VBF ’12)

jackl (5601) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Keg @ Borefts 2012. The pour’s completely still reddish brown. No head, not bubbles. The nose is spple, spiced mulled wine, some cocoa posder and red fruits. Te taste is sweet liquid cotton candy, some spiced fruits, more mulled wine and caramel. Hints of red grape and rich rotting wood (in a good way). Diverse, complex palate. Soft, very drinkable. Wow, what a beer. One of the best of the festival. Complex, rewarding character.

gEUS (1424) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 15, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2013 tap @ borefts - taken from notes. Pours dark amber with small head - aroma of nuts, plums, raisins and some vinegar hints, alongside the touch of red grapes. Medium body, sweet , small madeira hint. Very drinkable, like! ----- Had the bottled version + another draft pour at Struise. Beautiful bourbon notes, toasty, bread and hints of caramel. Upped from 3.6 to a decent 4.2

VT (1795) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2013
750 ml bottle from czar at blind tasting. An opaque, orangeish brown with a nice beige head. Aroma is oak and vanilla. Flavor is vanilla, tons of fruits, burnt caramel, tons of oak. Finish is somewhat herbal, roasted. Touch of booze, but in a nice, warming way. Lingering hints of spices (cinnamon, coriander). Average body. Very, very solid offering!

Foffern (1405) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a clear deep reddish brown colour with a small coffee-beige head. Powerful and nice aroma dried fruits, sweet malt, caramel, alcohol and wood. Complex. The flavour starts as the aroma and even more like a proper dark and sweet Belgian ale. Suddenly the flavour ends with a lot of lingering wine berries. Has a rich and silky mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A fantasticly complex and balanced ale. Just wow!

bartlebier (2533) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2015 (backlog ZBF 04/2013) from the DSB/Alv. ?tap train. Extremely well-rounded, bourbon-barrel-inspired vanilla caramel malt profile, producing a wide range of smooth sweet chocolate and cake notes, truly a desert for any tasting session - near-cloying in that sweetness, with hops playing humble second fiddle to this explosion of near madeira-aged malts.

Holmen1 (3409) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2014
Flaske fra Belgisk Bryg, delt med Ovesen som avslutning på Holmens aktivitetsdag 1.mai-14: picobryggeriet Alvinne fortjener makrorenommé! dette er et superb øl med overveldende aroma og smak som minner om de fineste årgansportviner og -sherryer. Vinøs, kompleks og uhyre velbalansert. Ettersmak som varer og varer, uten å bli hverken vammel eller skarp. De 14 ligger bare som en diskret varme i bakgrunnen.
