jackl (7063) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2016
Sampled during RBWG Tampa 2015. Amber pour with a practically non-existent head. Very strong, boozy sweet nose. Hot caramel and apple. Aggressive, nose-tingling stuff. The flavor’s hugely sweet. Apple and pie crust. Toffee. Hot, but not overbearing. Oily, rich body. A real sipper. Decent in small samples.

Bottle split at Angry Chair during RBWG ’15, 20/02/15, big thanks to one of the guys there... Twas a fart dungeon of a raking emporia ! Rich amber with beige spotting. Nose is bitter dark fruit rinds, slightly harsh and boozey, dates, candied fruit peel. Taste comprises rich fruits, syrup, sweet licks, figgy pudding, dates, booze. Full full body, cloying feel, warming alochol in the close. Ok considering the ABV, a warming sipper.

Somehow AdamJackson got a 750 ml bottle, with only a dozen bottles sold to the public... Ok. Dark caramel color with lots of suspended yeast particles in the liquid. Aroma is booze upfront with dates, figs and caramel. Lots of booze.

Sweet, syrupy, booze bomb, molasses and a shit ton of dark fruits. Hot warming sensation after the sip. Thick full body with a dense texture over the tongue. Well this is more like a Liquor. A small shot for me after 4 oz. it is entirely to sweet and syrupy.

Chalumeaux (1041) - Methuen, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Poured from bottle thanks AdamJackson. Pours a syrupy amber no head. Aromas of alcohol and dark sweet fruit. Taste is thick and syrup like with notes of caramel booze and fruit. Interesting to try. Whalezz bro!

750mL bottle shared by AdamJackson. Thanks! One of just a handful bottles from 2010, or so the story goes. 25 fricken percent. 50 proof. Are you kidding me? Pours grade a maple syrup brown with a beige head and big chunks of floaties. Aroma is raisin, date, brown bread. This smells like a pretty good quad. No hint of the crazy high abv in the nose. Flavor is caramel, toffee, raisin, a bit of wet cardboard. Very syrupy and sweet. An interesting beer, no doubt.

I got this bottle some how....I can’t remember how. Split a few ways with some Americans

A - Very dark burnt orange to brown color. A small 1 finger tan head formed then quickly faded.

S - Smells really strong...honestly like an iced Belgian Quad should smell. Intense aroma for sure, lots of strong dark fruits.

T - Well, this is freaking syrupy...so darn thick and sweet. tastes like a strong black tea with a lot of sweet raisins and currants. The taste is just so intense.

M - Dense, thick, straight up syrup.

O - Probably the most intense thick beer I’ve ever had. Very unique, very special but unfortunately, the taste is very hard to get through. mouthfeel is out of this world. Need to make some pancakes.
