Borefts Beer Festival 3. Hazy brown beer. Residual tan head. Palate is a little dry with fine carbonation. Sweetish malt with a trace of toffee caramel. Nice minerals. Fresh tasting! Just a trace of the port barrel but its there providing subtle red fruits. Finishes semi dry with some lacto. Very nice indeed!

Dark brown. Not much head. Dark fruits and alcohol. Lighter body than I would have thought. A little too much alcohol for me, but with enough age it would be mellow and wonderful.

From Tap. Dark brown with creamy foam head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, wood. Taste of vey sweet caramel, chocolate, coffee, toffee and wood. Some sticky wine, like tanines, and dry wooden aftertaste. Warm alcohol finish. Much more complex than the original pannepot.

Sampled from the tap at Three Floyds XV. Poured a clean black with a brown head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a good amount of dark fruits, with notes of dark grains and roast backed by a nice port note. Flavor again had a nice combination of dark fruits and port with backing sweet dark grains and a bit of molasses.

Zu Beginn nach Honig, typisch belgische Hefenoten. Geringes Alkoholauftreten mit dunklen Kräuternoten. Edrig, süß-würzig, gelungen, vollmundig. 10/12/11/11//11

Draft on tap at FFF XV Party (Munster, IN). Pours a roasty blackish brown pour with good frothy offwhite head, laces small. Aromas are crisp toffee and caramel and vanilla, touches of red fruit and oak. Initial is red fruit, cherries and raspberries, a touch of boozy cough syrup, vanilla, oak, toast, and sweet malts. Middle is a bit coughy syrupy, more red wine tannins, caramel and toffee, vanilla, touch of spice. A nice touch of booziness, vanilla. Red fruit. Finish is just a touch a tart, red fruit, a bit artificial, oak, and sweet malts. Ok, a bit cough syrupy but the oak and Port element are well received. Would like to try again, it’s a bit inviting beer.
