Borresteijn (5312) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2009
Bottled at Borefts Bier Festival, De Molen. Black with a beige head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, some coffee and dark fruits. Flavour is all of the above, nice chocolate and vanilla sweetness ending in a nice soft bitter finish. Fullbodied. Outstanding.

Wow. Bottle from our Mes, yet again fine work mate. Black as Tevezís heart, with elbow patch brown head. Aroma is head swimmingly awesome and heart achingly lovely. Like a dustbin lid sized chocolate cake. Rich but smooth flavour. Perfect mouthfeel. The oak aging gives a hint of vanilla, almost bordering on coconut. Almost liquor like. Has a wine like quality somewhere in the huge finish, not in the palate er somewhere else. Lovely. Will definitely have to re-rate in a larger quantity if I get the chance. And Iíll certainly be looking for it.

Chocolate and fine cigars, washed down with eyebrow-raising quantities of schnapps and cherry brandy, itís an entire christmas holiday condensed into beer. I donít care that it is August.

TBone (13816) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 6, 2009
Wooden cask@GBBF2009. Opaque black, small steady tan head. Lots of vanilla and whisky in the nose. Full-bodied. Flavor is dominated by roasted malts, vanilla, whiskey, some peat. Itís a bit sweeter than toasted. You find Tsarina Esra base here easily. Good beer ;)

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.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2009
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.
