ClubGonzo (3985) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2013
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew and Foffern. Pours a cloudy deep mahogany body and a small white head. Aroma is fruity red wine notes and candi sugars up front, then red berries, grains, wood and hints of vanilla and raisins in the back. Taste is bourbon, vanilla, red wine, tobacco, chocolate, caramel, candi sugars hints and sour-ish grape-like hints in the back. Full body, medium carbonation. Very complex and nicely executed from my favorite Belgian brewers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Martinus (2782) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2013
Black brown colour, beige head. Aroma of caramel, molasses, light sour note and candy sugar. Reminding of dark sourdough bread. Light sour flavour, caramel, lots of red fruit. Finish red fruits, sourdough bread.
Wondering what the effect of bottle aging would be on this beer.

Dark red, big head, very nice appearance. Smell is quite sweet, wood, burned. Now this is quite a good beer! The soureness is quite abscent, but will get through by aging. This is going to be a very good beer when getting older! Very nice brew! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sebletitje (6624) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 20, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2013 50cl bottle sample @ RBBWG 2013, courtesy of Travlr. Brune foncée, pointe acajou, col beige. Arôme présente un peu de ce côté Wild Turkey (caché) mais le tout reste assez discret. Qcq effluves de fruits rouges se font à noter avec un léger bouquet malté caramel doux voire presque sucré. Palais fait bien ressortir le Wild Turkey, Bourgogne reste discret, pointe effervescent, avec un côté malt caramel sucre brun et en retrait un léger profil brett. Le boisé donne très peu de complexité à la bière et au final, je ne sais pas si ce double-barrique change vraiment la bière de manière drastique, les notes de ce dernier n’en restent que faibles. Au final, décevant surtout pour une bière ayant mûrit autant de temps en barrique. A redécouvrir car là je manque pas mal d’éléments de la bière.

Bottle. Hazy brown color, small tan head. Aroma of funky briwn bread. Taste is port wine, very softly sour fruit.

Benzai (8111) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2013
Sampled from bottle @ RBBWG 2013. Dark red brown color with a red glare coming through, small off-white head. Aroma is a bit chemical and it reminds me of vegetables. Don’t like it. Taste is sourish with plants and wet leaves. Don’t like the taste either. Ok body and carbonation.
