JorisPPattyn (8041) - 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.

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.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 6, 2014
Sampled from tap@Haand Fest 2013. Deep orangey amber body. Low sand-colored head. Sourish vinous aroma with notes of dark dried fruits, currants and tart cherries. Medium to full body. Oily on the palate. Taste is nicely balanced dry/sweet, vinous and fruity. Alcohol warmth in lasting complex finish. Highly drinkable.

Beer4000 (4619) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 11, 2013
Sampled @ Haand 2013. Hazy reddish orange with a tan head. Aroma is vinous alcoholic with dry fruit and caramel malt. Flavor is sweet, fruit and berries, sweet malt and alcohol in the range of port vine or sherry. Full body and almost sticky sweet aftertaste with warming alcohol. A bit too sweet and boozy, but somehow quite pleasant in smaller amounts.

Benzai (8999) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle @ Sticky floor tasting II. A bit hazy red color, medium sized quickly diminishing beige head. Don’t get too much aroma other than malts and overripe fruits. Taste malts, alcohol, overripe fruits, a touch of sweetness, wood. Full body, medium carbonation. Nice.

yngwie (14170) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2013
On tap at Haand Festival. Unclear body, dark amber in color and with a two-finger off-white head. The aroma is vinous, with alcohol, figs and raisins and some vinegar notes. The flavor has a decent bitterness, vinous alcohol and dark dried fruits. Bitter, lighlty sweetish finish. Full-bodied, dryish and with a nice carbonation level. Vinous, lasting finish. A quite pleasant one, showing how well barrel ageing can be done. 130525
