omhper (20678) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2011
Bottled, thanks Pallieter85! Cloudy orange/brown, no head. Aroma of caramel and whisky. Sweet and full bodied with soft mouthfeel. Layer flavour of caramel and whisky, a bit vinous with quite some alcohol warmth in the finish. Intense and flavourful, yet relaxed.

gEUS (1391) - Linden, BELGIUM - FEB 6, 2011
Red-amber color; In the nose: caramel, sherry/madeira touches, makes me think of a barrel aged Burgundt Pinot Noir type of wine. The wood flavour comes back in the mouth as well, giving the traditional quadrupel taste that extra "wow" feeling. Quite balanced; sweet in the beginning, dries out and becomes bitter after 3-4 seconds. Nice but expensive (>8€, about 9.5$ for a 37.5 cl bottle)
