4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thanks Benzai for trading this one! Great beer! Appearance is not the best, but as expected, clear dark reddish brown, small head, fading quickly to nothing. The aroma is wonderful, wood, vanilla. Taste is great as well, like aroma. Carbonation is good, body ok, but might have been fuller.

375 ml bottle @ Kulminator // split between me & Man-ki// tasted along with batches # 3 & # 4 // from a tiny La Trappe tasting glass // 2011 Vintage // touch darker ruby amber than nr. 3 & 4, clear, head is interesting enough snow white as opposed to #3, #4 & Quercus #2 // sweet on the nose syrupy, hint of liquorish, plenty of dark fruits in this one, touch bitter // sweet syrupy, dark fruits going more towards dry & some canned ones as well, winter spices in the finish, toffee, vanilla, small touch wood, touch bitterness in the finish, that one is new, the wine?, otherwise not picking up distinct white wine or at least not what I would expect white wine to do // smooth, touch syrupy, carb. going closer to soft, out of the 3 prefered #3 & #4 but this is nice as well, grown accustomed to these
