Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 20, 2011
Dark brown coloured beer with lots of carbonation and a medium off white head. Yeasty banana fruity with some spicy hinted sweet malty aroma’s. Full light creamy tingling palate. Finish is roasted sweet bitter malty and creamy with a longer light yeasty fruity and alcoholic hinted taste. Ending is a very subtile burn of alcohol at the back of the throath. Creamy beer with some very subtile flavours.

On tap at Bier Temple, Amsterdam. Slightly hazy amber beer, small white head. Smooth semi dry palate with mild fine carbonation, Sweetish malt with some dried fruit. Quite a lot of estery bubblegum. Dry woody finish. Not really getting this batch. Unsatisfying. Original rating 2.7.

2nd March 2012.
A bottle this time. Cloudy brown beer, small pale tan head. Smooth palate with nice fine carbonation. Smooth mild caramel with estery bubblegum that isn’t too sweet. Holding it together is a nicely integrated red wine (red wine?) vibe that has Port like cherry and blackcurrant. A little spice and a trace of wood. Semi dry finish. Very nicely integrated.

sebletitje (8789) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 24, 2011
Draft @ Delirium Monestarium, Brussels. 15cl LaTrappe chalice. Orangée, brumeuse, col beige, fin et crémeux. Arôme est phénoménal avec des notes de fruits et de chênes somptueuses. Bois est bien placé ace des légères notes de tanins et sucre candi. En bouche, bière avec belle balance. Note de chêne et de bois qui ressortent bien. Malt bien en avant avec un caramel sucré et en retrait note biscuité. Fruits noirs donnant à la fois une impression de pomme caramel, avec raisins, prunes, note de sucre candi. Une bière somptueuse sous tous les points, et à 10% reste d’un pure plaisir à déguster.

haukur (1623) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - SEP 17, 2011
I was not expecting much. I love the orginal, and know it quite well, having sampled it at various age, but this is something different. Very woody aroma, same thing when taking a sniff of a good Chablis, same oak. Some wine grapes. Looks like a regular quad, coppar dark brown with a small head. Taste is complex, the maltiness of the original is gone, but instead I have a very complex taste of raisins, toast, some chardonnay acidness. I first though I had some whiskey notes but that is that oakey alcahol burn. This is incredible, well worth the price tag. 12 $ in Reykjavik.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 12 cl tap at Arendsnest, Amsterdam 12/09/2011. Pours hazy, burnished copper with a medium, slightly yellowish-brown head. Aroma is white winely acidic, white currant, oak, sherry-like. Taste is raisin, prune, reminiscent of sherry or port wine, sweet. Alcohol comes through a bit as a warming sensation. Palate is full and a bit sticky. Very nice.
