TET (1756) - FINLAND - JAN 17, 2014
The bottle no. 29071. A very beautiful beer, colour is dark reddish brown, a head is medium and creamy. The nose is quite sweet, dried fruits, orange marmelade and some caramell and herbs. Taste is rich of malts, dried fruits, some wood and caramell, nice bitterness for drying the taste. Almost full bodied, still easy and slippery to drink. At least a fresh as now, this yearís Vintage 2013 isnít so good as a one year matured 2012 version. This isnít so rich of nuancees. Tastefull anyway, nice winter warmer.

JorisPPattyn (8032) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 12, 2014
Part of a vertical comparison, many thanks to M & L V.!. Small tan head; orange-amber beer. Sweet, banana, caramel and toffee. Liqueurish flavours, caramel in force, parsley and lots of alcohol. Finish is utterly sweet, on the edge of cloying. Slick, alcoholic, viscous. Probably too young for such a powerful ale, might be better in a couple of years.

Wonderful, really wonderful piwo. Look of bottle and beer are beautiful but that doesnít matter. What matters is that warm welcome of fruits, caramel, grapes and bit sugar you get. A deep piwo you can easily compary to a dark, sweetish and heavy wine. Wonderful.

Bottle, #034778, at Kick. It pours s small, light beige head over a mostly clear looking Amber colored body. The aroma is quite fruity, dried fruits mostly but also some plums and ripe pears. Almost meaty malts, toffee and prunes, and piney hops. Some alcohol. Thereís a little warmth in the mouth, itís full bodied and soft on the palate. A nice bitterness deals with the malty sweetness and dried fruits. A little meaty touch on the flavor too. Cellar is mentioned around the table, I agree with that. Warming, sweet finish with a nice bitterness. Pretty pleasant this one, bet itís even better in a year or three. 140111
