Bière quadruple de 10 % abv, dont le brasseur fait le commentaire, tout en parlant de barley wine, mais on sent qu’il la classe effectivement en quadruple. Ce qui, nous allons le voir, est exact. Couleur brun roux bien foncé, et roux en transparence. Bulles fines en colonnes partout. Mousse beige clair, bien nappante à 2 mm, dans une belle texture. Arômes de fût de chai, raisins secs, malt noir, pointe de baies noires. 1ère bouche soyeuse à veloutée, à l’entrée très vineuse, avec du bois, des fruits noirs. Arrière-bouche très maltée, superbe. 2ème au grand équilibre malt/houblon/fruits mûrs. Arrière-bouche dense, très bien formée, équilibrée. 3ème avec malt, fruits noirs, bois de fût, écorce de pin. Arrière-bouche très belle, forte, savoureuse. Longueur très intéressante, nuancée, à la fois fine et forte. Jambes très denses, très serrées, mais bien fines. Levure jolie, fine, très belle veine. Alcool très bien, beau travail sur toute la longueur. Finale profonde. CONCLUSION : bière tout à fait apte au vieillissement. Le brasseur parle de 25 ans … C’est suffisamment rare pour le souligner, et c’est bien sûr un beau programme !!! Ceci me fait penser que j’ai quelques Chimay qui sont à 30 ans d’âge cette année ... à consommer donc avec prudence, mais sans modération !!!

olsvammel (4237) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2015
Bottle at a big tasting (Nördprovning 2015). Light smell with some fruits. Malty and fruity taste. Feels a bit like a lager beer and not very exciting. Too old or just not in the right category?

Aroma is sweet and rich malt, dark fruits of plums, figs, and dates, nutty notes and earthy yeast. Flavor is sweet and rich caramel malts, light alcohol, dark fruits are abundant and a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

Bottle 30cl. Deep dark brown with a medium off white head. Aroma of fruits and malts. Taste is sweet at first. Then a bitterness kicks in that’s very nice.

Huge thanks to WillemsUrenkel for that one! Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass dark brown, nice head. Starts strong, intense malty, light alcoholic, not too intense. Light fruity notes of plum. Earthy hints. Finish well balanced, warming-malty. Really nice!

0,3 l bottle bought in the Mitra Haren/Groningen. Brewed 2014. "Binnen 25 jaar opdrinken." Okayyyyy ... Pours out nearly black, little bit oily, small low tanned head. Heavy nose. Chocolate, dark berriefruits, sweetness and hop. Starts really smooth, sweet dark fruits, sugar, chocolate, also some hop and malt parts. Some bitter sequences in the late aftertaste. Hidden alcohol, due to the sugar? Very high drinkability.

BlackHaddock (4964) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2014
30cl bottle: brewed in 2012. Opened and drank during a ’Dutch Beer Evening’ on 31st Oct 2014. Poured slowly into a Westvleteren Trappist chalice at home and shared with no one. Ruby edges to the dark body, a soft, deep tanned blanket sat on top, sediment could be seen floating within the beer: I allowed it to slowly settle, while taking a sniff and occasional sip. Heavy brew with plenty going on: the nose is boozey and Port like, sweet and malt/fruity. The taste is very similar to the aroma, Port, malty and alcoholic with a dark fruitiness. Almost ’barrel aged’ sort of feel to the beer, some spirit type flavours within the ones already mentioned (Port, malt, dark fruits). Very, very drinkable for a bloke like me with a sweet tooth. Rich, full bodied and a joy to have found.
