Kleveretien Oak Aged is our barrel aged version of the Kleveretien. For our barrel aged experiments like this one we started up a cooperation with Pirlot. The 2012 version is whisky barrel aged for 6 months (Belgian Owl). The 2013 version will be wine barrel aged.

Draught at Mugs on for 12 days. Pours reddish with lots of heads and good lace. Aroma is apple and malty sweet with dusty spices. Flavor is that fairly balanced with moderate whiskey notes in the middle that build with a esthy bitterness. This keg is described as having anise added which I get in the feel but no much in flavor. It is fairly watery and at this point a little dead. Interesting and good.

NikkTwist (1581) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Very dark clear red pour with a large bubbly tan head that mostly disappears. Definitely feeling the Whiskey Barrels here so this must be the 2012 version. Tasting vegemite. Medicinal notes in the nose. Feels like an aged Scottish ale. Celery seed. Peat. Rotted dark red fruit. Medium body. Juicy despite the darkness. Nice challenging unique mix. Interesting try if you can find it.

Quite thick and syrupy. Has some smokey malts. Light whiskey flavour comes through in the aftertaste.

Draft sample @ 18th Christmasbeer festival in Essen. Dark red brown with little head. Smell is sweet woody blend of liquorice, sugar & syrup de Liège + malts. Taste is sweet liquorice, wine, vinous, glue, lightly roasted malts, very bitter herbs, wood, bitter coffee, sugar sweetness. m/m. Quite a bit better than the base beer, lovely.

sebletitje (6624) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 16, 2012
Tap @ 18de Kerstbierfestival, Essen 2012. Brune, col beige. Arôme est malté avec ce léger bouquet de chêne, nez moyen épices et houblons. Palais est agréablement bien malté, léger noisette, chêne plutôt bien placé tout en restant agréable en bouche. Pointe d’épice boisée et un fini houblonné citronné moyen. Agréable surprise de voir une bière finalement en fût d’un single malt belge quoique je n’ai pas vraiment détecté une grande influence de ce dernier. A revisiter.

Sampled at OBER Kerstbierfestival 2012. Dark red brown color, virtually no head. Smell and taste malts, wood, some fruitpeel and a slight bitterness. Medium carbonation, low to medium body.

Sweet peaty aroma. Absolutely black. Cold coffee. Absolutely delicious. Rather smooth texture.
