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

Muggus69 (2002) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2016
330mL bottle from Yarragon Ale House. Pours a deep hazy orange peach body, small white head. Aroma quite intense & intriguing - dried apricot & peach, oaky notes, phenolic spices, oxidised apple/acetaldehyde. Surprisingly lean for strength, drying, lingering, kind of oily low carbonation. There’s a lot going on here - butter, burnt popcorn, bruised apple, peach nectar, ripe apricots, sultana, toasty oak, grass, Port-like, Tokay-like, Brandy-like even, odd at times, delicious at times, finish is drying, a bit warming, a bit tannic & astringent and weird. Complex, excellent, but i’m somehow sitting here thinking "Wow on paper this has almost everything wrong with it by the book" but who needs the book

yngwie (16389) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2015
Bottle, shared by bergstaden. A hazy, dark orange colored beer topped by a finger-thick off-white head leaving some lacing. The aroma is lightly vinous, with some berries, tannins, cellar and wood. It’s full-bodied and lightly warming, with a soft carbonation. Fruityness, some tropical fruits, sugary sweetness, woody hints, tannins and a faint cellar tough. Bitterness and alcohol towards the sweet, fruity finish. Overall a bit too warming, but sure a nice one anyway. 151010

beer-yum (1243) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 14, 2015
Sweet and malty aroma in a cloudy amber pour. Typical tripel taste is full bodied and well balanced. Barrel ageing makes for a smooth but complex drink.

Beer5000 (5776) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2015
330 ml bottle sample at Kjetil’s farewell party. Slightly hazy amber body with a moderate sized off-white head. Nice mature aroma of malt, caramel, dry fruit, mild whisky and wood. Flavor is sweet, smooth malt, caramel, dry fruit, smooth, sweet whisky, warming alcohol, wood and moderate but balancing bitterness. Fine balanced body and long aftertaste. Well aged profile, very tasty, perfectly balanced, super smooth. Extremely happy to finally have the opportunity to taste this one.
