MrHangover (2452) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle @ THT May, courtesy of me. Pours a clear brownish beer with a huge off white head on top. Aroma is very fruity, oaky, caramel and red fruits. The base beer is still defintely there, backed up by some oaky goodness. Flavor is sticky sweet, fruity and caramel. Loads of sweet stuff going on. Carbonation is good. Very decent beer!

Bozo_skeleton (437) - Grenoble, FRANCE - MAY 7, 2014
Belle robe ruby foncee, peu de carbo, petit collet de fines bulles. Arome un peu leger mais complexes et envoutant.On y retrouve les fruits mures, raisins, des notes de brandy de caramel. En bouche c’est une liqueur ! Le fut de chene fait sont office et les notes boisées apparaissent. Elle garde malgre tout une amertume prononce sur le final, ce qui lui octroie une longueur a la fois sirupeuse et astreingente. Etrange mais pas desagreable.

raj201 (6) - Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2014 does not count
I think would have been a great quad but the aging on wood really detracts from the beer

McWorta (555) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 21, 2014
Mahagony coloured with a toast head and no CO2, crystal clear liquid. Noses of liquorice, coffee, chocolate, herbliquor, portwine, wood and dried fruits. Soft lively with a light saltyness, a bit creamy and a harmonic sweet and roast bitter aroma with a full body. A slight touch of sourness and long lasting warming finish.
