Probably the best bonus ever. Honestly, are you kidding? Oteyj, jblauvs, and I are about to enjoy this to the absolute fullest. Pours a murky, brownish orange with a small bubbly head, nice lacing that renews incredibly well considering how old this stuff is. Aroma is incredible: tons of nectar fruit like apricot and nectarine, great sweet vinous notes, wood from the barrel aging, raisin and other dark fruits, and some angel food cake and Belgian yeast. Flavor is absolutely freakish. Huge notes of maple candy, nectarine, grape, caramel, brown sugar, plum, raisin, and wine-- so sweet, but so unbelievably good. Palate is obscenely smooth; 12% ABV what? This beer left my mouth agape, my jaw on the floor, and my love of Belgian beers renewed. Could be my favorite beer ever.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2010 MASSIVE thanks to Bo at BA. The pour is opaque apricot with a small white head and low carbonation. The aroma is massively nectar oriented with huge vinous barrel notes, fruity dough, massive dark fruit. The flavor is transcendent. Massive caramel, dark fruit, nectar fruit, dough, grapes, maple syrup, brown sugar, plum, and fig. The alcohol simply isn’t noticeable. The palate is perfect- massively viscous with a sticky coating mouthfeel that doesn’t ever quit. Absolutely divine.

Chris, are you shitting me? I mean really. I cannot believe I actually got to try this beer. Holy shit. Holy crap. Fruity aroma, with a great bit of fruit and oak on the tongue. Flavor is sweet and bready. Goddamn, fuck it. I just want to say thanks to Chris. You rock brother. You rock.

A Beer I thought I would never get to try. Bottle opened by Chris Q at Woodshop 5.0. Bottle poured fast as expected, thanks fully Denim Dave, found me in the bathroom and I got to try a quite small taste out of his glass. Thats more of this beer than most people will ever get to try and that makes me happy. Pour is orange with a bright white ring. Nose is sweet. Taste is sweet, rich with lots of dark fruits, EPIC!!!!!!

(750ml bottle, 2000 vintage) Pours a cloudy orange body with a small white head. Aroma of bread, toasted grain, raisins, honeycomb, molasses, caramel, and toffee. Flavor of raisins, orange, toffee, caramel malt, vinous, baked apple, and some brandy. Nicely complex and well balanced. Excellent!

( 750ml Bottle) Review #400! Shared by bu11zeye, thanks for letting me in on this Markus! Pours opaque orange with bubbles on the edges and no head. Good lacing. Nose of gingerbread, alcohol, pears, dark dried fruits, brown sugar and biscuit. Taste is figs, bready, candi sugar, undercarbonated but still a nice body. Lingers of spicy yeast, light alcohol, tart fruits, and rum soaked raisins. Very complex. Probably 2-3 years past its prime and its still a great beer, impressive!

bottle provided by bu11zeye. as soon as this was opened you could smell the aroma fill the room. there was a long silence right after opened that i felt the need to break by asking a dumb question. i think the silence occured 44 minutes into the tasting. this poured a murky amberish/orange with somewhat of a white head and when swirled could see the legs standing along the glass. aroma was a fruit basket with pear and orange followed by some honey, fingernail polish, and cinnamon. flavor was honey, pear, little citrus, and some alcohol was apparent. body was full with low carbonation and some slickness. very nice indeed and glad to of had the opportunity to try it.

Rating number 2600. Pours with minimal head and a hazy golden brown body. Aroma of Bordeaux wine fills the room after pouring. Aroma on closer inspection shows alcohol, caramel, florals, wet wood, fusel alcohol with a tinge of berries, wine, and cobwebs. Taste raisins, and rum raisin ice cream, sherry, port, madeira and a whole host of other fortified, vinous wines, rum soaked bred, wine barrels. There is a bit of oxidation, but it is light and pleasant. Some musty notes. Long duration. Warming with light bubbles and an awesome vinous finish. Very pleasant indeed!
