markextrae (2146) - NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2015
Bottle shared with a friend. Poured a murky dark cola Brown colour with a off head. Bursting aroma of over riped fruits, sweet pineapple, orange, mango, tropical fruits, Some honey sweetness, bitter orange Peel. More sweetness in the end. Can’t really detect any barrel ageing here. But i’m sure that’s where all the sweetness is coming from. Very enjoyable quad. Wich also could go as a barley wine after this age. Very Nice!

Weird, weird beer. Sweet and fruity, but a little bit funky and tart with a surprising lightness of body (almost a fluffiness). Pretty good, I guess.
