Silvan7 (903) - Samarate, - NOV 21, 2013
Bottle @ Il Porco , Corbetta. Reserva 2010. Schiuma beige, abbastanza fine abbastanza persistente. Colore ramato,riflessi aranciati, opalescente. Profumo abbastanza intenso, poco persistente. Fruttato, di albicocca , pesche in sciroppo, molto speziata, sa di zenzero, lievito belga e coriandolo fresco. Alcool ben avvertibile. Complessa. Gusto Molto intenso e abbastanza persistente. Dolce amabile, poco amaro, nessuna tostatura e pochissima acidità. Si distinguono miele , zenzero, un gusto "terroso" che potrebbe essere la cannella, una sensazione pungente che potrebbe ricordare il pepato di alcune saison e si ritrova il coriandolo. é abbastanza corposa, carbonata, poco rotonda. Equilibrato il gusto , abbastanza armonica nel complesso per via della disparità di intensità tra profumo e gusto (entrambi comunque molto fini).

rami_pl (640) - Warszawa, POLAND - OCT 4, 2015
butelka, kufle i kapsle. Bardzo ladnie wygladajace piwo, do samego konca ladna, drobna piana zostaje. Bardzo mocno slodowe, slodkie, swiateczne, troche przyprawowe. duzo owocow, dojrzalych brzoskwin. zaskakujaco malo beczki w nim czuc, to lezakowanie daje tylko jakies fajne posmaki, zreszta bardzo dlugi, po kazdym lyku mozna robic kilka minut przerwy a i tak czuc smak. w ustach syropowe w konsystencji, nisko wysycone, bardzo slodkie, do saczenia powolutku. klasa piwo!

Barrel and malty aroma is awesome. It looks in the glass great as well, deep golden color and nice delicate head. In taste it’s disappointment in my opinion. I was expecting massive explosion of flavours and barrel notes. There is a little bit of barrel ab front, but after this it’s rather empty for such a huge beer. A bit of wooden notes in the aftertaste, great pleasant mouth feel with great alcohol touch. Quite a big gushing while opening the bottle. In overall it’s still a great beer, but I was expecting so much more, especially after other beers from these brewery.

chinchill (3229) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 10, 2015
11.2oz bottle poured allowed to warm for a while then poured into a snifter. 2012 vintage. A: Foam rose up the neck upon uncapping and would certainly have overflowed the bottle if not quickly emptied into my glass. It poured a murky & cloudy chestnut brown color with a well-proportioned, off-white head that had good, but not excellent, retention. Some spotty lacing left behind. Aroma: Too much alcohol, but otherwise very nice, with a rich and complex mix of dark fruits and light spices and with a bready yeastiness. Flavor - similar to the smell, but with more hidden alcohol, light woody notes, and a less pronounced fruitiness. Some mild barrel aging evident in the aftertaste. Feel: Ample but soft (natural?) carbonation that’s well matched to the flavor profile and medium body. O: impressed by the balance and complexity, I’ll head back to get some more of this for Xmas gifts.

Bule (1332) - California, USA - SEP 5, 2015
12oz bottle pours a hazy brown color without much head. Lots of malt and some bourbon spirit flavor. Spices are a little overpowering. Smooths out with some time to breathe.

ChtiBreizh (258) - Rennes, FRANCE - AUG 30, 2015
Clear light brown with fast vanishing head. Caramel, bourbon, wood cask. Sweet with a dry and light sour finish. A very good siruppy sipper.

mgajdaczewa (1033) - Katowice, POLAND - AUG 26, 2015
W aromacie cudowna belgijska brzoskwinia, wyraźna pieprzność, pikantność od drożdży, nuty dębiny i bourbonu świetnie się komponują, do pełni szczęścia brakuje wanilin, te są, lecz śladowe. W smaku pełne, słodowe z belgijskim brzoskwiniowym sznytem, drożdzowe nuty pikantne, bourbon, nieco dębiny. Świetne piwo!

VastActiv (4071) - Oulu, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2015
Bottle 0.33l at Stadin Panimobaari, Helsinki. Colour is deep orange with very small white head. Aromas and flavours: Some fruits, candies, dryness, some wood and malts. This is very strange.

matbli (143) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 14, 2015
Bottle 330ml, very strong gashing - at least 1/4 of the bottle were lost. Pours cloudy dark amber with strong and pillowy white head that remain for a very long time. Aroma of cherries, vanilla, raisin, toast, caramel and wood. High sweetness in foreground dominates the taste, in the background light bitterness with some sourness in the aftertaste. Medium bodied but all in all quite flat for that high abv. Drinkable but I expected more.

Icedwarf (855) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2015
Roodbruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is zoet en krachtig, fruitig abrikoos, en aardbei. Helaas is de Bourbon smaak niet zo mijn ding vandaar de wat lagere rating, echter dit doet niets af aan de kwaliteit van dit bier.
