NeoHippie2 (1057) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle #11942 Dark brown pour with an off-white head. Aromas of yeast, brown sugar, dark fruits, and subtle oak. Flavor is very similar to the regular version, which is awesome, with just a bit of oak in the finish. Very tasty but the oak character wasn’t nearly as prominent as I would have liked.

IrishBoy (3871) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 3, 2014
750 ml bottle from Imbibe Wine (2012 bottle #14024) Nose is caramel and red wine barrels with some hints of golden raisins, the red wine being most prominent. Clear brown with a medium tan head that laces very lightly. Flavor is lightly sweet, caramel, and peppery with an oaky presence. Decent but no better than the non barrel aged version which was less than half the price.

JulienHuxley (3344) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle. Oh, I was sure this would be an alias of 2011. Oh well, here goes 2012! Dark brown pour with this off white head. Aroma is quite enticing, rich molasses aroma, plums, oaky notes, port, rich malty notes. Taste is sweet, boozy, really good molasses maltiness. Rich velvety palate, good carbonation. Really tasty quad.

sic1314 (3647) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2014
Poured a clear dark amber with a small tan head. Aroma of roast caramel malt and dark fruit. Full body, the flavour as the aroma, some wood from the ageing apparent, some liquorice amongst the fruit.

ClubGonzo (4168) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle from bieresgourmet.be. Pours a near-black deep brown body with large creamy off-white head. Nose is nutmeg, cinnamon, licorice, wood and hints of dark malts and lactic sourness. Taste is dark malts, cinnamon, candi sugar, oak and a pleasantly lactic "barrel-infection" sourness in the finish. Full body, dry finish, high carbonation. Quite a lovely creation from De Halve Maan.
