JorisPPattyn (7817) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2011
Small dirty-cream head over clear copper-amber beer. Superb nose as from old, sweet wine, very vinous, vanilla. Sweet, brandy, vanilla, vanillabeans, coffeemilk, alcohol-preserved fruit, winecasks. Very complex, yet balanced flavourprofile. Better carbonated than most such ales, slick, alcoholwarming. Spectacular nose. Beer, however, is more sweet than suspected.
