On tap at Rose Red, Bruges. Pours mostly clear dark red with very thin white head. Aroma is lots of licorice, malt, hint of smoke. Flavor is malt, licorice, wood, smoke, port wine, alcohol. Very sweet. Sweet aftertaste. I was honestly a bit disappointed.

66 cl. bottle with the usual gift-wrapping @ home. Obtained in a trade with Martinus. Thx! Bottled on 08/2013. Pours a dark wooden brown with a very milky mocha coloured head consisting of larger bubbles. Smell is brown sugar sweet, biscuit, malts, faint dark fruits covered in a layer of seaweed, iodine, peat & pleasant minerals. Taste really opens up when it get a bit warmer, preferred it slightly chilled as opposed to room temp. Upfront it tastes of soy sauce, teriyaki, thick dark bread, thick caramel, brown bananas, lots of lots of milk chocolate, sugary sweet with a distinct meaty / gravy quality to it, the yeast pushed to the max I assume, finish is bitter, faint charred oak, light peated earth, rounder & more mellow I feel compared to some of the other editions but it has been a while for me. There is a more delicate balance here, way more sweetness, biscuit, gingerbread, dark bread this time around. Mellower, more balanced brew not that the others were more than potent in their own right. I am really liking the sweetness here. In the finish you get this nicely warming sensations once the flavours fade, almost whiskey-like. Excellent, really outstanding brew. I have trying these variations since they first showed up I feel like they keep evolving in an opposite way. Really stellar this one, my fav. so far for sure.

Thanks to Martinus, Secret Sinterklaas 2013. Dark brown body with puffy tan head. Nose is oaky, malts, toffee, chocolate. Taste is nice roasty malts, espresso, whisky notes, dark chocolate and toffee. Just great. Thanks so much!

Bottle @ home, thanks for getting this for me Martinus! Dark brown to black color with a nicedeep dark red glare coming tthrough, full sized beige head that leaves splendid lacing and lasts for quite some time. Aroma has malts, whiskey, lightly smoke and peat. Taste malts, lightly smoke and peat again, whiskey, lightly bitter, but also a touch of sweetness. In my opinion the beer is a bit thin considering the barrel aging and the 9% ABV. Very tasty though, and very balanced.

66cl, at 10%Vol, as Embrasse Peated Oak Aged, with sticker ’Lagavulin Edition’, new exclusive brew Anno 2013, from De Hopduvel Gent, very complex smoked brew, smoked/spicy and slightly woody/fruity, yet not too heavy, balanced, cloudy, good head, very good brew, yet expensive!
