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.

Wood at the taste for sure, slightly spiced and boozed. Slightly aged bottle, this will affect it a bit probably. Dark amber couloured brew that looks like brown in the glass. A nice, mostly sweet, beer, not bad at all.

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.

Comes in a 375ml bottle with a cork and cage. The cork was plastic and I had some difficulty getting it out! Pours a murky brown with little head. The oak is quite present in the aroma, along with a little of the white wine, plus vanilla and brown sugar. There’s a good level of carbonation and a slightly creamy texture to it. The taste is of caramel, crisp white wine (perhaps Sauvignon Blanc), spices. Quite a unique beer.

Light brown with a small off White head. Aroma of Wood, vanilla, grapes, and the whitewhine barrel notes makes perfect sence, they are there along with the rest. Heavy toffee flavor, alchohol, lots of vinouse notes, again vanilla. Desert like finish with the previous notes lingering. Great
