Bottle, thanks Pete! Hazy brown liquid with medium light tan head. Aroma of dried fruit, raw sugar, raisins, light port wine and vanilla. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with notes of raisins, raw sugar, toffee and bourbon. Medium to full bodied with low carbonation. Quite nice still.

750 ml bottle to taster at the Ratebeer Best Awards (thanks phaleslu). Looks good; a cloudy caramelish brown with lighter beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells hot and boozy with notes of dark fruit and Belgian yeast. Tastes like it smells with a mildly tart medium-full to full-bodied mouthfeel. Not bad, but underwhelming.

This bottle was offered by Peter hale at rbwg. Thank you pete! A bit hazy reddish brown appearance with a thin brown head. Caramel, oxidation, cardboard, toffee aroma. High sweetness and low bitterness. Syrupy and very rich. Caramel syrup and vanilla. A little old but I’m excited to try this none the less.

Bottle at RBWG 2016. Thanks phaleslu for knocking out a huge want. Aroma is dried figs and some dried leaves. Light tea. Dark red with a small off white head. Taste is deeply cherry and dried fruit roll up. Some light cherry flavors as well. For a beer this old it has held up well. Thanks Peter!

Way better than I expected, big thanks to Adam for the bottle many years ago, opened Zwanze 2014. Sweet with caramels, vanilla, dark fruits, but not cloying and surprisingly a really nice texture. Smooth, almost creamy. Drinking very well at the moment, don’t regret opening this one bit.

Lots of pear some. Funky pear flavor but it doesn’t mix well worth the palate. OK to drink but difficult to pair.
