BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2012
Cork and caged 37.5cl bottle: Given to me (like 6 other Batches), as a gift by Rudi from De Bierboom in Brugge, thanks Rudi. Poured into a Westmalle chalice and a Palm bulb for the sediment on 31 Oct 2012. Dark brown with red leanings, the head a thin wisp from the start, clear and clean, the Palm glass holding a murkier duller brew. The aroma and taste are fantastic: Port, liquorice, red berries, slightly sour, yet full in your face flavours to counter-act the sourness (chocolate malts mostly). Rich, warming and very, very nice. This is one very drinkable brew: I like!

Hasonlít a másik testvérére, de ennek például van egy vékony habja is és kissé szebb a színe. Illatában itt jobban érezni a hordós érlelést, ráadásul édeskésebb és marcipános. Ízében is ott a marcipán, bourbon whisky, aszalt gyümik, zöld alma. Az egész olyan behízelgő és igen selymes, itatja magát és a végén kirúgja a lábad alólad! Érdekességképen megjegyezném, hogy a papíromra az volt írva, hogy ez egy "Wookie bitch sör". Erre Te emlékszel Sörmók?

Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft, finish feel is light alcoholic. [20120928]

Bottle. Pours copper brown with lingering off white head. Nose and taste of raisin, vinous notes, dark fruit, dates, vanilla and oak. Medium body. Finishes with raisin/vinous notes. Creamy mouth feel. Nice beer.

Countbeer (4072) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle: Medium creamy head, changes slowly into a thick lacing on top of an amber brown colored beer. Smell raisin, wood, earth, oak, dust, light grapes, vinous. Nice aroma’s. The flavours are also very nice: nice wood, bourbon, red & dark fruits, some sweets (but balanced and nothing too sweet), light dry, grapes and cream. Very good Barrel aged quadruppel. Aftertaste is damn tasty too: dry wood, oak, bourbon-ish, vanilla. Low to medium carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel, medium to full body and a creamy texture. Very good thing is that the alcohol is very well hidden. Lovely beer!

BoBoChamp (5128) - Gent, BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2012
38cl, Batch 6, on new oak and used (White Wine) barrels, new exclusive Dutch brew Anno 2011, thx to Secret Santa!, complex brew, malty/sweet and slightly woody/vinous, yet not too heavy, balanced, cloudy, nearly no head, good Trappist, ’Thanks alot to Secret Santa for providing me the last missing puzzle!’

Ibrew2or3 (6530) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2012
37.5cl bottle pours murky brown with amber edges and thin tan head. The aroma delivers dark fruity esters like raisins and prunes as well as some molasses, a touch of caramel and then a mild oak to vanilla to boozy heat sort of sensation is noticed at the end of the pull. The taste is rich with robust notes of brown sugar coated prunes and raisins. It quickly picks up additional notes of sweet vanilla, molasses, a touch of oak wood as well as some oak spiciness. Nice quad.

Another one of these yummy concoctions // 375 ml. bottle split by 3 @ Kulminator // 2011 bottle // bright copper, tad brown, darker than usual & def much more touch of white head than usual // smells of very sweet caramel, toffee, sugar on this appears to be exotic, I am almost getting exotic fruits here, touch booze, very sweet wine, others get rice pudding. I sort of get that, especially the spices they use in that // taste is similar sweet caramel, toffee, exotic fruits, rice pudding, very sweet wine, small touch of wood, rice pudding spices, exotic sugar // slick, smooth // delicious as usual

Good taste, just strong enough. Nice glass, but take care when drinking... A must drink.
