From backlog 2012. Appearance of flat cola. Flavour has some warming alcohol and spiciness (ginger?). Sharp, sour wine-like finish.

Not that good. Brewery decided to mix 4 beers, and the end result is kind of a mess. Pours a thin black color with no head. Smell is decent, cherries and sour apple. Taste is sweet and sour, a mix of a sour ale and wine. Almost more wine then beer. Leaves a bad aftertaste. Had on tap at the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Beer Rev Tastival. Aroma and flavor is a plethora of imperial stout, barley wine, and grand Cru. Really a crazy mix of big beers. I'm not sure about this one. I mean, it's like a dump can of beers. Ok beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PotjeBier (2278) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2013
On tap @ the brewpub. Details: a blend of their Quad, Cherry Brown, Dubbel & Imperial Stout, aged for 12 to 6 months on Pinot Noit & Chardonnay barrels. Dark brown color, no head. Aroma’s: sweet, sour, cherries, vinous (red wine). Flavor is medium sweet&sour. Alcoholfeel is quite strong, body is medium. Finishes with strawberries, slightly dry. As I’m usually not too crazy about sours I was quite surprised to find this very enjoyable.

Draft. Dark mahogony beer with a low tan head. Light caramel and light fruity aroma. Dark fruit and light darker malt flavor with tartness. Medium bodied. Dark fruit and light chocolate lingers with light toffee and light tartness. A little messy.

On tap. Clear reddish brown with no head. Lightly sour green apple and caramel aroma and taste with a smooth palate. Not bad.
