Tap @ ’t Arendsnest, Amsterdam.
Pours hazy red amber with a nice, small, staying, off-white film head. Aroma is oaky, caramel, dried fruits, yeast, vanilla, light chocolate. Soft carbonation, impressive oily mouthfeel. Flavour has notes of red apples, banana, raisins, oak, caramel, lightly vinious with fine vanilla notes. Not as good as the 5-year old regular one, I had the day before, but still very nice.

JorisPPattyn (7977) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 30, 2010
Sampled under the moniker Quercus Draught. Very good off-white head over hazy orange-brown beer. Very vinous nose, old oak & wine, brandy even, fruits (apricots?) on alcohol, preserved oranges. Dry, fruity, alcoholic & estery flavours. Very complex with rosewood, and sweet(ish) rosewater. Unfortunately - all proportions taken into account - the flavour fades a bit in the aftertaste, getting just lighter. Still - slick, near-viscous texture. WOW! Lowieke, an absolute hit!

Fin (7540) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2010
On tap at The Kulminator, Antwerp, Belgium, 20-02-10 Pours hazy amber in colour. Soft and velvety in the mouth, really smooth and the alcohol is so well hidden, Some sweetness and warmth showing through, this is fruity and with oak vanilla coming though its powerful, an iron fist in a velvet glove.

Scopey (7079) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2013
Tap at the Kulminator. Definitely the dregs of the keg....It pours murky, muddy brown with a medium beige head. The nose is wood, earth, dark fruit, spice, candy and caramel. The taste is caramel, earth, roast, candy, dark fruit, wood, decent bitterness, alcohol warmth, toast and chalk with a dry, earthy finish. Full body, moderate carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. Alcohol well hidden. A decent quad, but would like to have tried this at top form.
