Bottled, Nov 13, large sample. Clear copper color, medium light brown head. Aroma of caramel malt, raisin, hint of chocolate, bit spicy. Sweet taste, hint of vanilla. Bit flowery and citrussy. Quite boozy. Pretty thick body, sirupy. Interesting brew, flavors go pretty much all the way at the moment. Probably improves with some age.

RW80 (550) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2013
30 cl bottle (shared) appearance: Clear red brown with a light beige head. leaving some lacing. Aroma: Alcohol,toast, caramel, dried red fruits (Raisins and plums), oak (quite sweet) Taste: Caramel, Dried fruits a bit of oak, spcices and some alcohol. Starts sweet then shows up a bit of more of the taste palate which doesn’t glue that well before it ends with a very Artificial candy sweetness and bitter maltyness. Not sure if this can be balanced out over time. But I will give a shot. medium body and cabonation. The candy artificial sweetness is really for me a dealbreaker. But even then I don’t see this comming close to the quality of the meesterstuk versions of the years before it.

MaartenRF10 (1566) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2013
Large sample at Pint tasting
Clear red brown. Light beige head. Aroma is an interesting combo of alcohol and (fresh grassy) hops. Taste still has a sharp alcoholic edge. Beneath that there’s a rather smooth beer with notes of portwine, overripe fruit, christmas candies. Creamy, almost buttery mouth feel, pleasant carbonation. Good beer, that will probably become even better when aged a few months.
