bierkoning (10563) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2010 Bottled. Amber color. Vinous aroma, like oak aged burgundy wine, hiding the malt. Malty sweetish flavor with hazelnuts, strong notes of red wine, toffee, oak, alcohol and raisin. The burgundy wine barrels dominate this beer, but also add complexity. A very good marriage! 750 ml bottle, enjoyed 21.07.10: 11,5%. Light amber color, cloudy. Oak and citrus in the vinous aroma. Oak in the slightly tart flavor. Lemon. Vinous notes. Malt. Alcoholic with soft Rodenbach-like notes. Good and complex.

JorisPPattyn (8032) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 9, 2009
No head - looking for all the world like a 20yr old, forgotten beer. UFO’s abundant. Very old wine/old sherrylike, prematurely oxydized, like sour sherry. Sweet, lightly oxydized flavours, again sherry, but turning out not to be really sour. Completely flat, needs desperately some conditioning (BTW, bottle was filled to less than 1cm from the top). Alcoholburning, very slick, and of course very light-bodied. Impression as from partly dried unripe grapes on sherry. Whatever happened to this one?

Fin (7692) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2009
Had this at the Borefts Beer Festival, De Molen Brewery, Bodegraven, Netherlands 30-10-09 Pours orange/amber with a white head. The alcohol is quite heavy and this is a little sweet. Bit fruity with the wine cask influence a touch muted, I might have got a little woodiness I’m not entirely sure. A6 A3 F7 P4 Ov13 3.3
