Defreni (2860) - Husum, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2009
Flaske: Åbner med et pift hvilket er beroligende. Farven er sort med et minimalt skumhoved. Duften er meget alkoholisk med en svag bourbon note. Smagen er kraftig bourbon på en uraffineret måde. Base øllen må sådan set have været ok, men alt drukner i bourbon. Ikke nogen fantastisk øl, der dog alligevel sniger sig op på over 3 bare fordi.

GBBF. Roasty malt - smooth and not too bitter. Good sourish whiskey like note but not peaty or smokey. Smooth ending with a touch of sherry. Lots of warmth.

GBBF. Opaque black beer. Soft palate. Rich and slightly spicy dark malt. A little unsweet wood and repressed chocolate. Less sweet and sherry like than last year.

GBBF. Barrel. GBBF would not be GBBF without this annual treat! Opaque black beer, bubbly tan head. Light and fresh dark malt. Seltzer like minerals, trace of herbs. Rich chocolate malt with a mildy sour woody tang. Finishes semi dry. Marvelous beer!

caesar (5828) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2009
Bottled @ BBF. Cloudy brownish color, medium off-white head. Aroma of chocolat and coffee, but also fruity red wine. Perfect balance in taste between the roasted coffee from the tsarina esra and the vinous notes of the barrel aging. Awesome stuff.

jerohen (2076) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2012 On draft at 1st Borefts Beer Festival, Bodegraven. Completely dark appearance, beige head. Very complex nose, chocolate, coffee, malts. Very complex flavor, some sweetness, nicely balanced. I like it eeven a lot more than the regular version (altough that one was very young). Absolutely fantastic. Re-rate: bottled, number 622 bottled Feb 19th 2009, sampled Dec 2012. I didn’t think it was possible, but it actually got even better after 3.5 years. Wow...

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.
