mR_fr0g (5026) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle shared at the Cad’s 10 year birthday tasting. Picked up from the school yard. Aroma is nice plumy fruits, stewed fruit, caramel. Mid amber coloured pour with a lasting greyish cream coloured head. Flavour is composed of plum, raspberry fruits, caramel, dark and nutty grains. A little warming booze in the finish is nice. Palate is semi-sweet, mid carbonation.

Azazello (106) - POLAND - MAY 10, 2015
Struise Tsjeeses Reserva - Port Barrel Aged to jedno z dwóch zakupionych przeze mnie piw świątecznych - to było leżakowane w beczce po porto, a ja w porto zakochałem się będąc w Portugalii. Wygląda przepięknie ze swoją barwą będącą na granicy burgundu i miedzi. To lekko wysycone i gładkie piwo cieszy aromatem suszonych owoców, delikatnymi przyprawami, wiśnią i mocnym aromatem drewnianym. Wiśnia przydaje piwu cierpkości w smaku, ale generalnie piwo balansuje ku mocno owocowej słodyczy brzoskwini i ananasa. Piwo mocno rozgrzewa i chyba tylko delikatnie zbyt mocna pieprzowość mnie w nim gryzła. Tak czy siak jest bardzo dobrze!

cards04 (2162) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 7, 2015
This is pretty awesome. Pours a dark honey colour. Lots of sweet Belgian candy goodness going on in the aromas and flavours. I don’t get much port. Nice hoppy end. I really liked this.

northropfrye (2527) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 2, 2015
Dark maroon body with light foamy head. Belgian candy and dried fruit aroma. Taste is sweet vibrant fruity with a touch of the port. Rich and flavourful with a frothy zippy palate. Very nice beer.

spacecube (1232) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2015
330ml bottle, pours clear amber with a small bubbly off white head. Aroma is complex, cherry, dates, rich caramel, oak notes, banana, raspberry and blueberry. Full bodied with a lively, dancing carbonation, the texture is lightly oily and lightly creamy, thinning out to a pithy bitterness balancing out the sweet malt. Very drinkable, not much alcohol in the taste, with a great depth of different flavours.

TheCametron (2014) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 26, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy Amber with an off-White head. Sweet plummy aroma. Booze and caramel. The flavour follows suit with lots of thick caramel sweetness. The port component is well measures. Adds a richness to the affair. Warming and delicious. I love the Tsjeeses range.

Unde (541) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 24, 2015
(2013 bottle) Clear copper colour and nice beige coloured head on top. Aroma has port wine, nuts and some dried fruits. Taste has sweet berries, dried fruits. You can feel the alcohol but not taste it. Full body with really high carbonation. Maybe the best edge has disappeared from this one, still an ok beer.
