Thanks to Solan for the bottle. Pours with a lot of activity. Aroma is heavy on the oak, to the point of it being severe. Flavor is more of the same. Tons of oak. It tastes like it was left in the barrel for 15 months too long. A bite of vinegar accompanies the heavy oak. A dry finish with a bland cardboard maltiness. Perhaps we got a bad bottle, but the whole group I was with thought it was pretty bad, not just overrated.

Bottle (thanks Finol!). Notes of strawberries, chocolate, and sour cherries in aroma. Taste is fruity, sour, earthy and vinous. Notes butter, cookies, raisin. Some warming alcohol in the end. A bit dry. Overall: super complex and impressive, altough not as drinkable as the original version of Stille Nacht.

Bottle from a trade. Aroma of saffron and wine. Tastes like a heavy barly wine with raisins and a tart taste of red wine barrels.

This is absolutely amazing. Light bretta, light plum sour, lots of zing. Finishes tart with some plum, light florals. Wonderful balance. The Bordeaux wine barrel works in wonderfully in this beer. Pours golden with great head and lacing. Bottle pour at Churchkey’s 5th anniversary, and probably the best beer I had among a bevy of wonderful beers.

weihenweizen (1865) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle via JStax at a tasting, thanks Jerermy. Clear copper with small white head. Aroma is Bourdeaux, medium body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is caramel, barrel, some vineous (white wine). One of the best strong dark Belgian ales of the tasting.

JStax (3233) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Rate 3100! Pours a clear copper with a thin head of beige foam. The aroma is caramel, toffee, nuts, wine, and some spice. The taste is just a little tart, but mostly sweet and boozy. Big body. Low carbonation.

Experiment_Ale (1043) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2014
At my place with Jacob and Matt the girls. Pours yellow orange, light lacing. Aroma is musky, interesting, sweet agave, Mellon Rhine. Taste is interesting thick sweet in a funky tang way. I can’t put my finger on it, but it’s odd. It’s like a light colored slightly tangy sweet thick beer.

HonusWagner (1598) - Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Aggressive bourdeaux character in the nose, fruity and spicy with a nice little bit of tartness. The wine character really comes through in the front of the palate with the more typical spiced cake flavors of SN making themselves noticeable in the finish. Great beer.
