UPDATED: JUN 23, 2008 750ml bottle thanks to Bstill.... pours a cloudy deep brown with a moderate thick light tan head.... aroma of light oaky tartness, musty earthiness with some underlying sweet toffee malts..... sweet sugary malts upfront wtih earth dark fruits and also a fair amount of oak. aggresively carbonated with a fairly nice/full mouthfeel. finish was sweet and long lasting....can’t say that this is worth the pricetag but it was nice to try. the brett infused version was definitely more enjoyable.

Bottle. This was a real treat. Pours brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is oak, sugar, and caramel malt. Flavor is sweet with a moderate etoh presence, belgian candi sugar with no real hop character. A good offering.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2008
750 ml bottle - thanks to Fryecrakker05 for the trade; pours dark brown with slight white head; the main thing here was a dominating sweetness from the oak in both the flavors and aromas; had a real nice body to it and drank silky smooth; alcohol is hidden and the malts are rich, just a little overpowered by the sweetness

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - MAY 15, 2008
Bottle. Body-dark cola with a thin ring of bubbles. Nose-brandy, buttery, toffee, warm cream, raisin, fig, molasses, big soft creamy beautiful nose. Taste-low CO2, raisin, fresh fig, molasses, raisin/tannic bitterness, treacle, plum, prune, big dark fruit dominates, low to almost nonexistent Belgian characteristics, some apple/pear notes, caramel on the backend, very light sweet chewing tobacco, buttery. Excellent flavor that borders on sweet with dark fruits dominating. Cloying on the back end.

notalush (4631) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 14, 2008
Sampled at Dickinsonbeer’s Hoboken gathering - smells of oak, vanilla, boubon - light vinous tartness, brown sugar, loads of bourbon, and strong vanilla in the flavor - cherry, oak, booze - a tad too sweet, with apparent alcohol that burns a little too much - tasty none-the-less.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Bottle, shared I believe by eyedrinkale. Brown pour, off-white head. Aroma is strange malt, some sweet dark fruit but also burnt roast and wood. The flavor is the same, the wood is a little off, and there is some alcohol noticable also.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Bottle at Paul’s Hoboken Gathering: Amberish brown with a small but strong tan head. Good oak presence in the nose along with fig, raisins and very subtle chocolate. Sweet flavor with a slick body and less oak in the flavor than the aroma. Hints of chocolate followed by light oak hints leading to a sweet raisin and maple touch. Not bad, just a bit sweet.

Emil (6067) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2008
Bottle. Blind tasting. A red brown beer with a beige head. The aroma is of caramel malt, wood, vanilla and fruits. The taste is sweet caramel, fruits, vanilla and wood. Medium to full body with a light sweet, light alcoholic finish.

Beershine (5195) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2008
Hazy mahogany brown. Aroma of brown sugar and brandy. Flavors are for more complex and include sweet chestnuts, honey, and figs. Soft, creamy, smooth palate. Nice stuff.

after4ever (5929) - Brier, Washington, USA - APR 27, 2008
750, corked and baled. Thanks, SuzyGreenberg! Murky dark brown with bright ruby highlights. Light gray rim, laceless, still. Huge cherry nose with toffee, caramel, and white sugar there as well. Creamy body on the high side of medium, active carb. Plums, cherries, and other dark pitted tree fruit come through on the mid-palate. Mild sweet dark fruit finish.
