Beer4000 (4313) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2014
Sampled at VANØ annual meeting 2014. Clear, deep amber body with a small tan head. Aroma is slightly roasted caramel’ish malt and some dry fruit with an impression of dust or maybe lacquer. Flavor is medium sweet, toast, toffee, slightly hint of dry fruit, moderate bitterness and some of the same impression from aroma of dusty cellar or lacquer. Medium body and moderate in aftertaste. OK drinkable, but nothing really impressive going on.

On tap @ L’Express de Lyon (Paris). Brown with a medium beige head and good lacing. Aroma is of toffee, raisins, Belgian yeast and caramel. Taste is of yeast, toffee, caramel, raisins, spices and moderate sweetness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Decent/good Dubbel. Alcohol is showing up a little too much and reduce drinkability.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 18, 2014
750ml flip top bottle served in a Southern Tier tulip A - Pours a dark ruby brown great clarity with a sandy frothed head. Collar starts thick but turns tin with zero lacing. S - Brown sugar, cooked pears, burnt caramel malts, soapy/spicy/floral hops, cocoa powder, toasted dark bread, alcohol. T - Very deep malts, charred caramel, general dark fruit, dark chocolate breads, floral hops hit on the outside edges along with vanilla and notions of cocoa. It’s sweet but there is a grassy/alcohol like dryness to it that builds into the crisp finish. M - Moderate cola carbonation, medium body, slick feel with the carbonation racing to the top even when swished around. The alcohol starts showing up more as it warms thinning out the body. Finishes crisp. I really liked the aroma, complex and changing. This beer does a serious shift from cold to warm. The alcohol starts light and spicy when cold and moves into bulldozing everything when allowed to warm. Very interesting for the style and in general. It seemed to have Belgian influences. Pick this up if you see it around. Serving type: bottle 07-29-2013
