Zlotta (2262) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2016
Sampled from 0.375 l bottle. Slightly hazy, dark brown to black with a light brown head. Sweetish-malty, quite spicy aroma of milk chocolate, lots of coconut, hazelnut and some nougat. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty and quite spicy taste of milk chocolate, coconut, nougat, vanilla, cinnamon and hazelnut, followed by a long, slightly roasty-bitter, quite warming-alcoholic and a bit spicy finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very good!

Bottle thanks to Vestergaard. Pours almost black with a brown head. Aroma of cinnamon, buttery cognac, raisins, syrup, dates, plums, orange crunch and sweet esters. So christmassy Geeee! The taste also has that cinnamon, some orange, dark sweet fruits, syrup, liquored marzipan, coconut cakes (kokostoppe) and a big amount of sweet barrel notes. Wow this was surprisingly good! A perfect christmas beer.

77ships (8211) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 21, 2015
Thank you! Sampled 375 ml. bottle @ Kerstbierfestival Essen 2015. Very dark brown to black, mocha bubbles. Nose is warming, lots of spirit, big booze with light vanish, mocha, chocolate syrup, powerful,… Taste is gorgeous, coconut, raisin, dates, sugar, candy, marzipan, huge vanilla from the oak, sugar, sweet dough,… Beautiful oxidation, this is everything an aged Belgian wants to become when it grows up. Body is touch thinned & oxidized. A truly rare & beautiful example of everything gone right in an aged beer of this kind. Lovely.

gyllenbock (8003) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 6, 2015
Bottle, bought at Bierkompass in 2014. Dark brownish/red with a small head. Quite a lot of cocoa both in the aroma and taste. Also some chocolate and oak. Almost full body and with a low carbonation. A smooth and pleasant one.

SirLimpsalot (3817) - SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2015
@ Eddan 15-12-5: lätt och len doft med små cognackstoner. Smaken är tydlig kokkos och inte så mycket annat. Inte helt balanserad.
