bastarda (429) - Freiburg, GERMANY - FEB 25, 2016
kindly shared by bartlebier@pre-BKL-tasting, thanks a lot; aromas of sherry, raisins, pear compote, all that getting denser in taste, morphing into port wine, dried pears, dried dark fruits and vanilla bean. Layered sipper.

bartlebier (3408) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 24, 2016
75cl shared at bastarda’s pre-BKL tasting, 2014 vintage? - Smells like an old sweet grape rosé, a touch of those destilled wine fumes, simpler malt sugars. Quite flat and unspectacular in flavour profile: mainly dark malt fruit sugars flattened out by a barrel and grape peel astringency, quick finish. Past its prime?

jaghana (5491) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - FEB 19, 2016
Bottle 75cl shared by Bartlebier, a dark amber beer with low head. Nose is on chocolate, yellow fruits, bit sour like. Aroma is on sweet caramel, vinous, dry grapes notes, finish on fruits.

Luvystypotables (1651) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Aroma of malt with a hint of smoke and cognac. Reddish brown color with a lasting tan well laced head. Taste of malt and cognac with a light body and a cognac finish.

mike5326 (1624) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Dark maroon color, small off white head. Light liquor and malt aroma. Light body with a sweet malt flavor that is accented by its alcohol content and a medium finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

xlts (76) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAR 24, 2015
Pours dark brown, small, quickly-dissipating head. Aroma of dark fruit, very woody. In taste it’s very sweet, malty and fruity. Hints of vanilla and chocolate as well. No hints of alcohol. Nice and complex.

slowrunner77 (10112) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 20, 2014
A nice enough dark belgian strong aged in cognac like barrels...but if memory serves, these are upwards of $30 per 750, and after trying this one so graciously provided by a friend, i would not spend half of what these cost on the others. Belgian spicy yeast and brown sugar comingle with the barrel. High ccarbonation covers tha abv pretty damn well. Good, just not elite, which is how it is priced

lusikka (7689) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 16, 2014
750 ml bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere. Pours a dark ruby colour with a creamy white head. Aroma of cognac, lovely oaky notes and vanilla. Rich deep flavour of malts, bread, oak, vanilla, cognac, red berries, earth and caramel. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a sweet, lingering, vanilla finish. Elegant.
