Malzig-saurer Geruch, harmonisch. Malzig und vergoren fruchtiger Antrunk sowie Mittelteil, etwas süßlich, außerordentlich harmonisch. Im Mittelteil wird das Bier würziger was zum leicht sauren Hopfen passt, der schnell wieder verschwindet. Weiter sehr würzig, angenehm süß. Süffig, harmonisch, stark, lecker. Riesen Dankeschön an den Doppelbock für die Ermöglichung des Tests von diesem seltenen Stück. 11/13/11/13/13/13

750ml bottle shared at a beer friends birthday party. I’d been saving this beer for years! Wow, the years have been very kind to this beer! Still quite sweet but an awesome beer. Well worth the wait!

bottle provided by bu11zeye. Yay! My 100th rating lol! Poured a hazy caramel brown. Aroma was of brown sugar, banana, and sour cherry. Flavor was of brown sugar, tart cherry, and apple. Light carbonation. Not too bad!! Kind of tart!

Sampled at woodshop 5.0. Pours a deep translucent amber. Aroma is sweet and fruity, with cherries, prunes, raisins, and an understated sourness. Flavor has golden raisins, chocolate, orange peel, and some alcohol, very well balanced. I’ve been told that the bottle I had the pleasure of being able to sample wasn’t among the best examples of this beer.

Rating #2000 Original rating from about 2 years ago. I was lucky to have this again just recently thanks to chrisq, but sadly that bottle just hadn’t quite held up nearly as well. It was a bit more oxidized and seemed rather muted.

Bottle shared with 3/4 and kmweaver. Sweet vinous nose, lots of candied red fruits, toffee and caramel in abundance, light oxidation. Sweetness is upfront on the taste, but it’s not overwhelming, alcohol is there, but kept in check. Caramel and toffee is lightly oxidized producing a sherry note along with a bit of figs and raisins. The red fruits are still very bright and vibrant. Finish is oaky and tannic with a bit of vanilla. An amazing treat. Thanks for sharing guys!

Holy Shit, I never thought Id get to try this, Thanks to OteyJ! Pour is a murky orange with a surprisingly lively head of offwhite. Aroma is lively as well, Apricot and nectar fruit dominate in the nose, A bit of brandy, very vinous, great sweet vanilla barrel notes, super creamy and perfectly carbonated. Falvor is bursting with sweet molasses, sweet barrel notes, white wine, caramel, with a strong finish of maple candy. Incredible, Jaw dropping, This is a vivacious beer that despite its age is one of the best Ive tasted

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.
