First bottle that Dirk served at the Kulminator, September 2008. Another in the recent trend of champagne beers, a notch above Deus, cloudy amber, acidic and oaky. Tastes of alcohol. Nutty, dry finish. Should age nicely.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 75cl corked, at Bier Central. It pours an unclear, reddish amber to brown body and a dense, light beige head. The aroma is intense and lovely. Vinous and slightly acetic. Slightly woody and a bit sweetish, with the alcohol sure present. Some peppery notes. Very warming on the palate, full-bodied and smooth, with a fine blend of flavors. Red wine, vinegar, dark fruits, sugar, hints of dried fruits and a yeasty hint. Super-long finish, where the warmth stays the longest time. A true beauty. Just lovely. 110429

Bottle at the Spotify tasting. Barrel aged funk. Pretty good in mouth. Lovely toffee and subtle toasted nutty woodiness. Some decent fruit. Very good and a lot better than I was expecting.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at Bagers - on christmas evening - shared with Mette, Bager, Per & Farmand. Cloudy red/brown - white head. What a lovely beer.... the winecasks helps the Bush de Nöel very much.... it turns it from way too sweet, to nice balanced and very complex. Soapy, citric, wood, nutty, light sourish (the good way), light sweetness, nice hoppy, dark fruits, fruity, caramel.... and so on.. very nice - lovely complexity.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Intensiv hefiger Antrunk mit übertriebener Alkoholigkeit. Dies überrascht, dennd as Bier ist ansonsten eher mau und zeigt, abgesehen vom Antrunk, keine weiteren intensiven Aromen. Minimal nussig, hier noch wenig hefig. Schlichter Abgang mit wenig Süße. /9/9/9/fl/9

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 shared by Marcus and I at Delerium. Bottle is 2008 Cuvee Special. Pours a dark amber with a decent beige head. Aroma has notes of oak and apple. Sour notes. Body is full and carbonation is fairly strong. Flavor is dark malt, and somewhat plummy sour. Malt is present to offset the sour. Becomes a bit vinous. Sour disappears with time. Changes. Goes really smooth in less than half an hour. Great beer.
