Bottle split at Madmitch76 20K tasting, massive thanks to Kenwold himself, 15/01/16. Clear golden amber with a big ole off White covering. Nose is dates, sweet’n’sour exhaust, mellow dried fruit, xmas cake, airy malts, caramelised sugar. Taste comprises figs, dates, shades of port, alcoholic tickle, caramelised brown sugar, toffee, light spice, almonds, sweet licks. Full bodied, fine carbonation, warming alcohol at the curtain call. Solid Belgo strong ... has aged very well and masks the alcohol to good effect. Nice gear.

Bottle shared at Kenny’s 20K tasting - London. Did not expect that I would ever get to try this one, so a massive thanks goes out to Kenny for sharing this with us all! Pour mostly clear, bright orange-gold with a frothy white head. The aroma holds a lot of vibrant fruits, ripe apples, melon. citrus. Medium to heavy sweet flavour with notes of smooth apple sauce, light woody dryness, peach, pear, honey, stewed citrus fruits. Full bodied, lightly chewy, with fine carbonation. Warming finish with more ripe and chewy fruits, honey, pear, citrus, some pale bread, toffee. This stuff is just absolutely outstanding. Great depth, nicely rounded. It has aged immaculately.

Bottle share at Chriso’s, many thanks to madmitch20K for sharing this one. As ’De Dolle Stille Nacht Reserva 2000’. Vibrant orange, opaque, small off-white head. Aroma is port wine, icewine, light sourness. Smells like a mix of red, white and port wine. Body is medium, tingly carbonation, smooth. Taste is thin port, syrupy fruits, apple, musty with touches of elderflower, dry finish with some booze. Lovely.

75 bottle shared at Kenny’s 20K tasting @Chriso’s, huge massive crazy thanks to Ken himself for this rare gem. It pours a clean amber color with medium white head. Aroma is intensely sweet and lightly boozy and etery, wih notes of raisins, apricots, almonds ligt lemon juice. Taste is also mostly sweet upfront with notes of raisins and red berries and almonds. Turns then more tangy and very mildly acidic with lemon juice. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, still delicious

Old crappy notes, so bear with me. Madeira, caramel, cherries, coffee crisp jump out of the nose. So much going on. The mouth feel is creamy, and velvety smooth. Chocolate cake dumped into port with dark cherries, caramel and touch of thyme. Alcohol is totally hidden for 12%. Smooth mildly bitter finish with lingering port notes. Amazing.
