Vaiz (3275) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2013
Bottle at home, slight gusher. Murky brown pour, thin off-white head. Aroma of yeast, ripe fruits, alcohol, licorice, spices, candi sugar, caramel and some wine. Flavor is fruity, sugary sweet and quite boozy. Still well balanced and impressive flavor. Lively carbonation.

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 25, 2013
3cl Bottle, Vintage 2011, Vertical tasting with the BBA, Metallica playing on the background. Dark amber to light brown coloured beer with some medium carbonation and a large more sturdiy than the BBA off white head. Light sweet malty more herby hinted aroma. Nice creamy palate with some sprankling feeling. Finish is stronger herby with a longer bitter almost spicy ending. Port barrel not really comming to the front. Expected some more rounded fruity notes comming through with some short alcoholic notes. Nice but not overwhelming. Prefer the BBA.

Idiosynkrasie (3617) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 20, 2013
330ml bottle. Cloudy amber colour with average, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Malty aroma with hints of honey, hoppy overtones with a touch of peppermint. Taste is minimally biting hoppy, slightly herbal and spicy with more or less unspecific flavours; the same applies to the malty basis: unspecific, somewhat heavier flavours, maybe some vinous notes. Hard to describe more precisely.

Martinus (2742) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2013
Clear fox red colour, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, alcohol, wood, malts, raisins and red wine. Sweet flavour, malts, sweet port notes, wood, quite bitter. Finish honey, wood and malts.
Nice beer, good balance between beer and porto flavours.

txspartan (962) - Wilrijk, BELGIUM - FEB 15, 2013
Aroma of wood and licorice. Heavy sugared wooden flavour. Syruppy texture. Awesome!

suprchunk (2085) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2013
A slight haze to an otherwise clear amber/red colored pour. Small off-white head. Some minimal lacing. Big boozy aroma. Same booze in the mouth. A slight off-ness in the nose, but otherwise drowned out by the booze. Sweet taste. Boozy in the back as well. An all around boozy beer that doesn’t offer much else. Oh well.
