Bottle I took to Max’s for his birthday celebration. Pours a hazed amber brown with a medium sized tan head. Big sweet caramel, oak, soft toffee, a bit of banana and sweet malt. Medium-bodied, sweet with some big caramel. Some sweet caramel and a bit of chocolate. Warm and smooth, nice oak touches on the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ ’t Klooster (said 2011 white wine, so either batch # 5 or 6). Hazy amber to red with a small white head. Sweet floral aroma of malts. Very sweet taste, some white wine and booze, but mostly just sweet. Too sweet for me. Looking at the other ratings, I should probably try the bottle.

Draught at ’t Klooster, Delft, 2,5 years old. Pours cloudy copper with a thick long lasting beige head. Aroma is caramel, wood, grapes, fruits, toast, floral and malts. Heavy sweet and light bitter. Barrel aging really smoothened this out and it’s my favourite of the bunch so far. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Very good!
