Bottle from Vinmonopolet Manglerud enjoyed at home
Pours copper clear with a big beige head. Smell of spices, oak, caramel, dust, some yeast esters and clove. Heavy sweet, quite yeast dominant, flour, some spices and malts, alot of strange toast from the toasted oak. Moderate bitter finish. This wasn’t my glass of beer for sure. The oak toast mess up an ok belgian and makes it a bit less interesting.

ClubGonzo (4238) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy deep amber body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is vanilla, oak, red berries, apricot, grains, hints of candi sugar, nuts and amarone grapes. Taste is caramel, bread dough, candi sugars, oaky tannins, nuts and hints of alcohol, nougat, roasted bread, straw and red berries. Full body, medium to high carbonation. Complex and very pleasant, somehow without quite reaching Olympian heights, nevertheless.

gEUS (1267) - Linden, BELGIUM - DEC 11, 2014
750 ml bottle at home. pours cloudy orange light amber. Nice small steady head. Yeasty aroma, don’t get lot of the oak character, but some subtle vanilla and gentle wood. Love the full body, nice mellow mouthfeel. Taste is not really outspoken; some vanilla pudding alike flavours (ok crême brulée), candi Sugar, light caramel, flowery butter notes. Nice all-round full beer.
