tricksta_p (1883) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2015
Aroma of malts, caramel, ripe fruits, bourbon, oak, some alcohol. Flavour is heavy sweet with a rich sweet finish. Dangerously drinkable for its high ABV. Rather sweet, but smooth and enjoyable.

Bottle from De Hopduvel. Dark brown colour, almost no head. Almost no carbonation. Nose of port, vanilla, bourbon, caramel and chocolate. Sweet and a bit vinous. Boozy. A tad too sweet in my opinion.

Bosbouw (1756) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2015
Chocolade bruine kleur met een kleine doch mooie kraag. Ruikt zoet, crème, vanille, alcohol. Smaakt vol, vanille, crème. Subtiele zoete smaak met iets alchol. Lekker, maar verraderlijk.

(Wild Turkey) Dark brown with creamy head. Bourbon aroma. Flavour is sweet with Bourbon and dark malts. Really smooth and easy to drink. Rather strangely there’s a very slight beefy, gravy-like edge in the background.

Tap at Winterbierfestival 2015, Gouda: Dark brown with red glow colored brew and the taste is pretty sweet bitter with an nicely burn. Hints of chocolate, vanille and dried fruits. Very dangerous high alcohol volume you don’t noticed very well.
