sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 28, 2013
Draft sample @ ZBF’13 shared with the RB Belgian crew. Cuivre, col beige crémeux. Arôme donne de suite le ton avec un alcool qui est prenant. Ayant pu sentir la bière encore dans la barrique chez Alvinne, cette version est déjà plus atténuée avec un fruité et sucré moins visible. Grade néanmoins ce bouquet fruité de raisin et vin très agréable et des notes maltées. Palais donne de suite le côté réchauffant de l’alcool, note de spéculoos, sucre brun et ce vin espagnol rouge prenant sans pour cela dominer. Malt caramel, grillé en fin de bouche. Je n’ai pas vraiment pu détecter les houblons, qui ici semblent noyer dans les 13%. Peut sembler un peu trop douce, à voir comment cela va évoluer dans le temps.

Barrelbelly (647) - BELGIUM - APR 28, 2013
Thick, almost sirup like with a medium head. The aroma and taste are very sweet. The high alcohol comes through a lot in the aftertaste. A bit too sweet for me.

JorisPPattyn (8032) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 28, 2013
Draught Small, if rather stable head, cream, over brown-ruby beer, not opaque. Old brandy, brandycake with preserved fruit, dried fruit on brandy. Sweet, alcoholic, but with a wry, burr-like finish. Wood, solvent or woodstainer, severe. Very thick, well-bodied, oily-viscous feel. Sever, but great. Loved it.

Acid303 (406) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - MAR 14, 2013
On tap at Barcelona Beer Festival 2013. Small Pint (20cl). Amber-red colour with an off-white creamy head. White grape and sugary malts on the nose. Pretty much the same regarding taste, fruity, with a lot of sweetness derived from the blend Moscatel + malt. Balanced by the wood and the alcohol. Medium/creamy mouthfeel, good carbonation. Really unique.
