berntholer (1566) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - OCT 30, 2013
slight beige head that disappears fast without lacing. cola coloured. aroma of grains, anise, spicy/pepper, malt, boozy. taste is sour, boozy and medicinal. nothing special about this beer at all and where is the whisky supposed to be?! i really don’t know how i got tempted in buying this, i really had my doubts and regret it. this is bad or make that .. extra bad. perhaps the fresh beer at the brewer is good and this got infected, but i will refrain from trying!

MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2013
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, dark amber to brown colour with a small and tanned frothy head. Belgian yeast-spicy character with notes of dried fruits/raisins, mildly toasted malt and delicately woody notes of vanilla. Moderately sweet and delicately sour flavour, medium to full bodied with a calm carbonation. Fruity and mildly toasted malty base with notes of prunes, a touch of raisins, caramel and vanilla; sweet and slightly sour-fruity, if not delicately lactic finish. No revelation, but has some lighter attributes of a Flemish Red. 06.X.13

La verdad es que era bastante extraña, no sabía a cerveza ni como otras cervezas envejecidas en whisky que he probado. El sabor es fuertecillo. Al principio no me convencía pero después la disfruté bastante. Muy curiosa.

ClubGonzo (5422) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle from bieresgourmet.be webshop. Pours a deep mahogany brown body with a small off-white head. Nose is rum, raisins, wood, dark chocolate and hints of whisky and honey. Taste is sour-ish yeast notes, deep malts, raisins and loads of metal which is really disruptive at first but thankfully disappears after a while. Hints of red fruits and citric peel, which really feels out of place and makes the whole beer seem a bit like some strange juice or something. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Half-decent, but very weird.

Sourness was quite a lovely surprise. Barrel contribution to flavor is appropriately restrained. Complexity on the finish tops the cake.

Brune rougeâtre, pas de mousse, pétillance légère. On est sur les fruits rouges et foncés, un peu vineuse surette et boisée. Alcool peu présent malgré un ABV élevé.
