bierkoning (10484) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2012 From bottle @ BBF 2010. Amber color. Candied fruit in the aroma. Sugary sweet with clear bourbon notes. Very alcoholic. Candied fruit aftertaste. Too much for me. (7 3 7 2 13 = 3.2) @home in december 2012. Deep amber color. Dried red fruit, oak and grassy hops in the aroma. Full bodied. Grassy hopbitter, oaky, leafy flavor with dried red fruit. Bourbon, tobacco. Complex, not too sweet any more. Just needed the time to mature.

Vaiz (3523) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2010
Bottle at 2nd BBF @ De Molen. Very round and smooth. Quite sweet and with a nice malt base. The alcohol is however too much on this one and makes the finish very boozy. Still a very decent brew.
