benpickens (400) - Camarillo, California, USA - APR 27, 2012
Inky brown; very little head and fades into non existence even with a vigourous pour. Grape aroma; pleasant similar to Abt 12 and Roch 10. Nice sweet taste and finish with an undercurrent of fiery contained alcohol burn.

Sammy (8382) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2012
Bottle at Volo, served way too cold. So much better as it warmed with grapey aroma and winish rich, dark bodied. A good barleywine, and real wine substitute. Alcohol well hidden. Almost no head.Above average mouthfeel.

Gerbeer (1674) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 24, 2012
330 ml bottle. 2012 vintage. Pours a deep red brown with a light head. Aromas of sour roasted malts right from the brewery with a hint of toffee. Malt, brown sugar, and prune flavors. Sweet and warm. Young. A great beer for the cellar.

MaartenRF10 (1556) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2012 Bottle@Home Very dark, creamy beige head. Aroma is alcohol, dark fruit, woody earth. Taste is rather dry, with quiet some alcohol, some dark fruit and distant dark chocolate. Far less sweet than ordinary dark Kasteelbier. Not sure whether I like it better or not.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - APR 14, 2012
Dark copper coloured beer with a medium light brown head. Weak aroma of allcohol and maybee coffee and liquorice. Light bitter alcohol finish. This beer needs to mature a bit.

Defreni (2463) - Husum, DENMARK - APR 4, 2012
Flaske: 2012 årgang. Mørkebrun uklar øl med et tætsiddende skumhoved. Duft af rosin og tørret frugt samt en stor sødme. Smagen er igen meget sød, portvinsagtig. Man kan virkelig smage lagringspotentialet, men som den er nu er den en tand sød.
