DSG (5829) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 14, 2013
[5/6/13] Bottle at my hostel room in Copenhagen. Thanks fonefan. Vintade 2011. Hazy amber with some floaties. Aroma of malt, alcohol, yeast, fruity esters, oak and vanilla. Sweet flavor, slightly tart, fruity, with malt, caramel, oak, a bit of vanilla hints and a spicy alcoholic finish. Medium to full-bodied.

ej (720) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle, vintage 2011. Gushes, but not so fast i can’t get it over my glass. No love lost.. :) Head is thick and creamy, slightly tanned. Aroma is candy-sugar, hints of alcohol and notes of vanilla and oak. Taste is rounded woody notes, sweet malts and candy sugar, hints of well hidden alcohol and mild fruityness. Mounthfeel is creamy.

Bontus (634) - Flanders, BELGIUM - MAY 7, 2013
Bottle, 33cl, Geers. Pours dark copper, doesn’t look much like the regular Tsjeeses anymore. Small head, diminishes quickly. Aroma of ripe fruit, banana, candy & booze. Then port & liquorice over booze. Flavor is rather sweet, a bit sticky too. For a barrel aged beer, good carbonation. Technically it’s a good brew, but the purpose & harmony is a bit lost imho.

snzcujo (282) - RUSSIA - APR 28, 2013
Tasted from the bottle, on 20/04/2013 @Antwerp. Pours muddy dark amber/brown, with gushing, even being overly cold. Aroma is of candy sugar and faint oak. Taste is tripel-ish, candy sugar, slightly fruity, no wood, nothing else. Recommended for trippel style fans. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

czar (4378) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2013
pours hazy, almost cloudy, golden orage with a very nice white head, good retention and lacing. tons of fruitiness - apricots, hint of guava and mango, lightly oaked with a coconut hint - some sweet vanilla esters too, even more than BBA, caramel, light toffee, spicy red apples. sweetness. soft carbonation, medium body - oily and sticky, grassy, herbal and spicy with a mdeium long assertive citrusy finish. again, this is a good use of barrel (just like BBA), but it does not seem to add much to the original brew..

kraddel (3136) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - APR 17, 2013
Pours dark amber ( darker than tsjeeses) Rather small white foam Smell is like a more alcoholic tsjeeses .. Sweetness , more complex back than the regular . Aftertaste is sweet , complex . Yet nowhere near the best aftertaste ever , in the regular . It is way better than thought, though .. And way better than the bourbon edition

Bottle (330 ml). Vintage 2011. Small gusher. Deep amber with a medium to huge long lasting thick off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is of fruits, sweetness notes, port, spices and alcohol. Taste is moderately to heavily sweet with fruits, port, spices and alcohol. Mouthfeel is vinous, dry. Medium to heavy body. Moderate carbonation. Warming alcohol and spices.A bit too sweet, but quite complex and pleasant to drink. The barrel treatment isn’t overwhelming and give a good result.
