Cloudy brown beer. Dry and softish palate. A real gob full is this beer! Soft oaky tones with just a touch of vanilla. Red wine richness. Bubblegum esters and Belgian sweetness. Slight tart fruits. Complex and interesting if not quite as joined up as it could be. Talk about mixing the grape and the grain - induced a foul hangover!

sayravai (4669) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 29, 2011
(Bottled, 0.75l, 11.5% ABV) Murky orange-brown with a very small head. The Bourgogne barrel is evident in the nose, with grainy-caramely maltiness, dried fruit, and some typical aged Belgian character. Somewhat similar to Stille Nacht. Flavor is even more bourgogney, with grainy-caramely maltiness strongly present, and even some surprisingly fresh, exotic-citrusy fruitiness. Alcohol well hidden. Medium to full body, low CO2, refreshing. A reasonably successful barrel ageing, resulting in a complex and freshly fruity flavor.

Koelschtrinker (10000) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUL 25, 2011
Süß karamelliger Antrunk mit leichten Alkoholnoten, die nicht weiter stören. Vollmundiger und süßer Mittelteil, hier sind Holz- und Traubennoten vorhanden, auch hier ist der Alkohol erahnbar. Im Hintergrund lauern weinartig angehauchte Malzaromen. Der Alkohol steigt zum Ende in die Nase, dennoch kann man insgesamt von einer guten Balance sprechen. Ein wenig herb, Rund, vollmundig. Hellmalziges, fruchtig süßes Finish. Ein echt leckeres Bier! 11/12/12/12/11/12
