jbeatty (1244) - New York, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Bottle, 2011 vintage, 11/26/2012. Pours deep, dark brown, dense stable beige head with cohesive curtains of lace. Aroma is tart green apple and berries, candied fruits, yeast, faint caramel and vinous character. Taste is moderately sweet dark caramel malts with mild tartness, toffee, slight roast, dry woody chocolate bitterness in the finish. Medium full body, tingling carbonation. Ok, decent brew.

vincentvega72 (363) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2016
Mooi donkerbruin bier met fijne mokkakleurige schuimkraag die goed aan het glas blijft plakken. Overweldigend aroma van whiskey, chocolade, caramel, toffee. Warme zachte smaak. Eik, cognac, toffee, chocolade. Een explosie van smaken in je mond. Heerlijke warmende afdronk, Irish coffee achtig. Hier zijn geen woorden voor. Subliem subliem subliem....

Draught at Delirium Monasterium. Chocolate coke flavor, a bit simple really but still fun and dangerously drinkable for the abv.

Zlotta (1905) - Hagen, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2016
0.75 l bottle, 2012 vintage, shared at Not THT, from my Secret Sint 2015, thanks! Hazy, dark ruby with a beige head. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity aroma of caramel, raisins, prunes, brown sugar and some oak. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity taste of caramel, raisins, prunes, some brown sugar and oak, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter, a bit warming-alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very nice!

Finn (6269) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 27, 2016
Flaske 750ml fra Vinmonopolet Troms - Langnes. Drukket på Bergstua 26 Jul 16. Kork-kork med streng. Åpner med et lite “puff”. Mørk amber. Lavt, litt farget skum. Vinøs aroma. Plommer. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken kompleks. Mest plommer & søte epler. Lett tørr etter hvert. Litt bunnfall. Skikkelig koseøl.

kathouse (1605) - Nevada, USA - JUL 10, 2016
At the brewery. Deep brown and hazy, but this beer shines. Plums and red fruit, Belgian spice, and candied sugars blend with the oak splendidly. Maybe it was the freshness or the cask. Either way, I want another.
