3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cork and caged bottle via SL. Pours a muddy red brown color.. when I popped the cork barely any carbonation response... Poured aggresive, no head to speak of. Decent amount of sediment in the bottom. Smells nice though. Raisons, plums, other dark fruits. Malty, raw brown sugar, with some oaky notes. Taste even better. Malty, brown sugar, raison, plums. The oak taste has just the right amount. All blended well togther. Body is oily, slick smooth.... carbonation level is low but far from flat. The alcohol is not noticable but slightly warming. Enjoyed sipping on this beer. Overall: Nice BA quad

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.
