Musty chocolately smooth flavor. Little carbonation left but this beer travelled a lot. Some faint wine notes.

@Nuchtere Noorden Tasting I, schenkt donker bruin/rood met enorme kaki kraag. (?), verder heeft het aroma enorme aardse tonen, maar als we dan overgaan naar de smaak dan valt het op dat er een redelijke zuurgraad in zit, en na een aantal slokken krijg ik de associatie van nagellakremover/lijmachtig. Volgens mij is het wat verkeerd gegaan. droog. matig body. is volgens mij niet goed !

gEUS (1676) - Linden, BELGIUM - JUL 24, 2014
750 ml bottle 0187/459. Pours deep dark brown with a steady beige head. A very subtle nose for a 5.7%er: mahony wood, brown chocolate, warm roast, hint of fresh coffee. Nice light body but with a decent amount of roastiness, without being watery at all. Dry woody finish. Taste is all the goodness of a light and very drinkable porter... Little wine aftertaste. Beautiful little beast for this amount of alcohol.

dnstone (2457) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 22, 2014
A nice chocolate-brown color with slight bubbles but not much for head (accounting for the age). Light roast malt and red wine aroma. A light-bodied roasted porter with rounded with red wine and wood notes. Fantastically flavorful for a lighter beer and at 4 years old. Notes: Bottle # 0034 picked up Amsterdam in 2010 at De Bierkoning’s 25th anniversary. Bottle opened June 2014.

Ughsmash (7503) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 30, 2012
750mL bottle, bottled 8/25/10, #88. Poured cola brown with a fairly dense, yellowy-beige head. The aroma picked up sweet cocoa, molasses, and singed black malts with oak, vanilla, and lightly-metallic vinous notes around.. some oxidation and a little too barrel-centric, but solid. The flavor found burnt black and chocolate malts at the core, with light cocoa bitterness, complex vinous, oak, and earthy notes from the barrel, and a hit of oxidation around.. finished a little sharp with vinous notes and oak leading. Medium-bodied, dry, and tangy on the palate.. moderate carbonation.. not the best feel.. interesting barrel treatment on this one.

DutchDrebus (5454) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2011
Bottle 100/459. Dark brown colour with some ruby redness, off-white head. Smells coffee, oak, pine, mint and chocolate. Tastes deep coffee, chocolate, wood - quite powerfull. Full body, great co2 and quite warming even though it’s only 5,7% abv.

Benzai (12338) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2011
75cl Bottle at Cafe Buitenlust, Oirschot. Shared with DutchDrebus. Nice dark brown color with a deep dark red glare coming through. Small beige to light brown head. Smell sour, oak, wine, dark malts and lightly coffee. Taste oak, coffee, dark malts, bitter and chocolate. Superb complex taste and only 5,7%ABV! Remarkable. Full body, medium carbonation.

sebletitje (8789) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2011
Bouteille 75cl #436/459. Couleur cuivrée foncée, mousse beige. Arôme donne bien le profile des fûts de Bordeaux, le tout restant fruité et boisé avec des notes de malt grillé avec une fie touche de houblon amer. Bière agréable, malt grillé/café qcq note de malt fumé et on ressent bien le fût e Bordeaux qui apporte ce côté boisé avec des notes de fruits noirs et raisins/vin. Le tout est suivi par un houblon amer/citron qui reste agréable. Bonne chose que étant donné le faible abv de la bière, l’usage du Bordeaux ne prend pas le dessus, tout en restant bien présent. Une bière qui reste sèche au palais, avec des notes de bois, et un profile plus malté qui reste néanmoins balancé par cette amertume venant du houblon. Cet aspect sec venant du bois et du malt se ressent, restant agréable et fruité.

Bottle. [thanks skortila & caesar]
Pours nutty brown to black with a big, fizzy, frothy, beige head. Lovely aroma of milky chocolate, clear red wine, mild roasted, mild vanilla, some oak and a floral spicy note. Medium to low carbonation, fine light and very dry mouthfeel. Flavour is elegant, peppery (chili), roasted, dry, dark chocolate, a bit milky feel, vinious, oaky dryness. Chewy liquorice and tobacco notes. Piney, malty dry and grainy in the finish. Very lovely and elegant!
