COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is comparable with the beer aged in the Armagnac barrels, however the aroma is much more subtle. You can experience a mild alcoholic aroma, with a balanced flavour of vanilla, coming from the wood, and a fresh fruitiness reminiscent of apricot. Tasting this will give you a velvety taste, the honey like sweetness masks the degree of alcohol. The aftertaste is dominated by almond so the comparison with Amaretto isn’t far away. In short, the perfect dessert beer!

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle, 75cl. An unclear one, pale amber in color and with a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma is rather sweetish, quite fruity and with peaches, white sugar, some faint spiced notes and a touch of oranges and banana. Herbal notes and some resiny hints. It’s full-bodied, sweet and pleasantly carbonated. White sugar, peaches, generic fruityness, orange zest and ripe banana. Some vinous, tannin-ish hints. Lasting sweet, fruity finish with tannins and vinous notes. Too sweetish for me, but nice anyway. The wine added some goodyness. 150718

Sudcutter (1) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 19, 2014 does not count
The Madeira barrels really come through in this beer with a dessert wine sweetness and smoothness. The high alcohol content remains relatively subtle beneath great flavor and crispness.

JohnnyJ (4948) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Sample from bottle. Hazy orange amber, with an off white head. Very yeasty, wood, dates, raisin, candy sugar, and booze. So far, I’m not liking these Dormaal barrel aged beers too much.
