Rosslew (254) - - MAR 8, 2014
Nice honey in the glass. Definitely ripe fig. A waft of fortified wines. Sweet but then a welcoming equalising sour in taste. Very thick in mouthfeel. Not to be gulped. Surprising orange on the finish. Enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rangi (605) - NEW ZEALAND - DEC 5, 2014
A big beer this full of flavour and body. Aroma of fruity cloves. Appearance is just slightly hazy gold, superb lasting head. Very soft full bodied ale some nice sweetness present. Very easy to drink and forget about the high abv and price tag. Some nice ageing has gone on here and the cognac barrel has added a nice slight addition to the fruity clove flavours.

Cam_Dynamite (39) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2014
Still not my preferred style. Pours a nice golden light orange. Nose is a bit tarty and fruity. Taste is kinda sticky sweet, fruits. I'm a bit pissed. Judgement is not super

Shark_Pants (266) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle from Barny’s. Cloudy copper colour with nice fluffy beige head. Aromas are candi sugar, grains, cognac barrel, candied banana. Tastes fantastic - honey, multigrain bread, cognac, a little candied apple and spices. Medium bodied. Hides the high ABV well. Really love this.

Bottled, from Slowbeer, Melbourne, Australia. Hazy deep amber, small head. Oaky nose with banana and marzipan. Sweet with medium-full body and well rounded mouthfeel. Tropical fruit, marzipan, cocos and sugar. Mildly warming finish.

The second in the long journeyed range and a Tripel to boot, my old favourite of style. Well here goes....
At just on cool and into a snifter. Cap comes off and the beer foam rises up to meet me. Pours with little life; a hazy orange copper with a light, sudsy white crown that yields. Candied plum and pear greets the nose with more plump, ripe fruit underneath such as honeydew and cantaloupe but there is something else altogether in the aroma. Really hints at sautéed mushrooms, chilled cooked beef, brine soaked oysters - a lot of umami in this one.Quite ripe and juicy, sweet and plump on the palate. Lightly spritzy in feel with good body.There is pronounced Belgian yeast trait to this highlighted by juicy navel orange and tangelo, cantaloupe and fruity bubblegum. Tangy length, residually sweet but with a light warmth and lasting peppery note. The umami of the nose is there, melded well into the fruit, yeast and heat of it. As it warms it lends towards vinous, Semillon grape, with a sourness that balances the sugary notes. I like it. The aroma is descriptive of its journey; the palate is classic BIG Tripel. I could go another right away!! (33cL, no date stamp, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

Dervock (505) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle - pours hazy gold with a big white head. Straight out of the bottle there were definite port note, these subsided to a nutty apple and something else that I couldn’t get. Slight sweet spicey taste up front. It takes a while for the bitterness to come through in the finish, which when it does lingers for ages. Mouthfeel is creamy and feels like it cover the whole palate.

Imaril (36) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle, from the Purvis cellars. The Cognac barrel (and the high ABV) makes its presence known immediately on the nose and follows through with a rich high flavour in the mouth. Pours deep amber with light white head. Malt backbone is sweet but not overly so letting the cognac and a little sourness shine through, there is tartness like blackberries, malts have a pastry or croissant character. The feel in the mouth is full but not a syrupy as I was expecting, but rolls nicely through the centre of the tongue. Finishes fairly dry with a touch of timber.

On tap at Scratch Bar 070314. Version 2 of this great beer is even better than the first version.

maneliquor (3283) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2014 Bottle cheers to the boob at GABS. Pours light straw with a sticky white head. Nose is very grassy and earthy with bright lemon curd and an odd meatiness to it. On re-rate, absolutely huge apricot jam. Weird but it’s something I tend to get in cognac barrels. A touch vinous with loads of lime, grass and summer fruits behind a largely straw like base. Sticky and dried apricot throughout this brew. Balanced stuff. Not quite the standout like the previous versions but a very solid drop
