From cask at GBBF 2009. Very dark brown, small creamy capuccino head. Nice fruity, rummy coffee aromas and flavours, good tartness, bitter aftertaste. Soft as velvet. A treat for the senses.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2009 Bottle 70cl. Brewed 16/2 - 08 and bottled 9/7 08. One of the only fourty bottles that this rarity is filled on. Had the chance to taste this in the real sorrunding - and it couldnt be better. Sitting in de Molens warehouse, an old cheese storage house which has a naturaly cool temperature and an extreem coolnes to it. Situated next to the charming canals of Bodegraven on an summer afternoon. Sitting there among all the bottles and winebarrels from de Molen and taste a lovely and interesting beer like this is priceless. Thanx a lot Menno. The pour is darkbrown almost black. The aroma is saaz-hopped with nose of vinegar, apples, plum - a little lactose, english laqurice and alcohol. The taste is very complex with a nice sourness and tempered alcohol taste. There is notes of laquirice, ashes and chocolate. The palate is picking your tounge and is pretty dry with a loong lasting vinoes finish with notes from the bourdoux-barrels and some bitterness. Very nice.

SHIG (3883) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Bottle @ LCRBM 08: Poured a thick black color with a beige to brown color head. The aroma is roasted malts, fermented fruit, spice, and chocolate. Taste was simply devine with a chocolate and roasted malt, there is a nice mix of alcohol and fruits. These off set the sweet and make it very well balanced and tasty for sure.

bierkoning (10945) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2009 I couldn’t imagine any other beer for rating # 5000. So here it is. Bottle, kindly provided by Menno. Dark chocolate, raisin, oak and plums in the aroma. Sweet raisinny flavor with porto, oak, plums, dark chocolate and fairly well hidden alcohol. Vanilla and hops in the aftertaste. The young girl (somehow I find Tsarina Esra a very feminime beer!) has developed into a beautiful, strong, well developed woman with a lot of power and complexity. I will probably never forget this beer for the rest of my life... Bottled: 2009 version. Bordeaux barrel and you can notice that! Vinous aromas next to the coffee, dark chocolate, figs, raisinny and coffee notes you will find in the ’standard’ Tsarina Esra. Low on carbon. Powerful yet deceptively drinkable. Some alcohol in the finish. Once again a magic liquid.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2008
Bottle@LCRBM08. A black colored beer, with a thick foamy beige head. The aroma is gentle with roasted malts. There is chococlate with some coffee. Also hints of dark fruits. The taste of pure chocolate with a little bitter coffee. Dark fruits like overripe prunes with raisins. As aftertaste chocolate with prunes. Great beer.
