KombatAle (119) - New Brunswick, - MAY 15, 2014
33 cl bottle From Etre Gourmet beershop Cloudy copper with white foam, not very persistent. Aroma is full of fruits, spices, brown sugar, alchool, toasted oak and red fruits. Sippy mouthfeel, full in body. Taste is warm with red fruits, burnt brown sugar, caramel, toasted oak, vanilla, sweet spices, warm end and dry but fruity aftertaste. In the same way of Tjeeses Reserva. Supposed that they are italians, why not in wine barrels?

mmahut (1017) - CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle, trade from Benzai. Hazy bronze color body with medium white creamy head. Aroma has light acidic character, woody touch in the background. Taste is much more complex, begins with high malty sweetness with sweet brandy after taste, woody, light vanilla, low to almost none bitterness. Body is full, medium carbonation.

Een bier dat goed ruikt en een heel uitgesproken smaak heeft, maar het is niet mijn ding.

666ale (62) - Edimburg, SCOTLAND - SEP 4, 2014
Clear amber reddish with a thin white foam. Nose has red fruits, marmalade, brandy notes. Medium flat body with notes of brandy, warm, fruits, oak. Very complex and extremely balanced, dry warm finish.

JulienHuxley (3276) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle, 2013, says 10,5% on the label. Cloudy amber pour with creamy white head. Aroma of intense oak, brandy, rich vanilla, caramel, almost bourbon like, intensely aromatic and brandy forward. Taste is boozy, tons of barrel, brandy notes, fruity alcohol flavors, sweet, some acrid barrel notes. Palate is rich, full bodied with good carbonation. Not a bad beer, but pretty taxtbook over-aged, very unidimensional.

guitarhero (29) - Dante’s hell, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2014
Amber coloured, big foam not so persistent. Aroma is fruity and spicy. Medium bodied. Taste is dominated by the brandy. Very nice!

jmgreenuk (4625) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Kermis. Poured a murky medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet toffee caramel. The flavour is big sweet with a yeast, boozy alcohol veggie palate. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Not so great and that’s putting it mildly.

kermis (5433) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle shared. Pours hazy light brown with a small off white head. Aroma of calvados BA vegetables, orange and peas wtf. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter. Medium bodied with light carbonation. The Brandy barrel saves the vegetal crap from being really bad.

sic1314 (3468) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2014
Poured medium amber with minimal head. Aroma of sweet apple, caramel malt. Medium to full body, flavour of the aroma, vanilla smooth, mostly the barrel domiting.
