bartlebier (3507) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2016
33cl freshly bottled 09/2016, bb 09/41 from De Molen, shared. - Freshly siphoned Bourbon vanilla and fine marzipan smoothes out an already suave bitter chocolate soufflé. Ties cocoa, bourbon and a still fresh hop bitterness together in a clean bitter (chocolate and almond) finish. Basic in its richness, not to be taken for granted considering what can go (fusel-)wrong in barrel-aging...Alas this did not even make it 2months into its 25+yr lifespan.

dutchbeerpages (2294) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2016
It has the flavor of peat, but doesn’t have the biting characteristic it sometimes can have. Mild, flavorful, sweet on the lips. Beautiful. Tap at Borefts 2016

Werckmeister (2285) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - AUG 12, 2016
0,33l bottle at home bought at Beergium. Bottled June 11th 2014. black color, very small coffee-colored head. smells of wood, bourbon, light dark fruity, some alcohol, liqueurish, some earthy notes, coffee, a bit glueish, some marzipan, light grape notes / sour notes. overall very nice barrel notes. full body, soft carboantion, slick mouthfeel. tastes earthy, light bacon, some alcohol, spices, bourbon, nice wood notes, marzipan, bitter almonds, some glue. finishes rather alcoholic / glueish with notes of marzipan, wood, bourbon. overall quite good one, but still quite alcoholic (too much so), if it wasnt for the nice marzipan / wooden notes this one would get even less points. gets even more alcoholic once it starts warming up (so better drink cold).
