JorgeLee (1572) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2015
Bottle from Bignens Vins. Poured a deep brown colour, high carbonation and thick white foam. Sweet and fruity. Spicy hop. A touch boozy. Light yeasty esters. A solid strong beer.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2015 Another looker from Unibroue - hazy deep brown with perfect lasting, clingy beige head. Aromas of yeast, candi sugar and tart fruit. Flavor is similar with some sweetness of malt and caramel balancing with a somewhat tart bitter.

Vignale (2847) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2015
Flaska på Beer-ditch. 2004 vintage, drucken rumsvarm. Djup mörk bärnstensfärg med krämigt skum. Stor riktigt fin doft av madeira, portvin, torkade dadlar, fikon och päron. Snudd på en 10:a. Smaken avslöjar tyvärr att konditionen inte riktigt är på topp, ganska platt munkänsla utan kraft och värme, torkad frukt och madeira men mer platt och sirapssött och en del lakrits eftersmaken dör ut ganska snabb och lämnar en eftersmak av lakritsal. Har druckit den färsk för löänge sedan och det var roligt att prova en gammal.

Lilja (2343) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2015
Flaska på Beer Ditch Malmö. 11-årig flaska, smak och doft av mörk sirap, mörk torkad frukt, plommon toner av karamell och lakrisalpastill. Fin doft av Madeira men smaken hänger inte med, platt, sötsliskig, ändå kolsyra kvar efter alla år. Svårbedömd!

I can’t help but be impressed when a brewer takes a naturally big and rich style of beer and makes it keenly approachable. Dark Belgian beers aren’t always easy-drinking brews, but Trois Pistoles offers some highly palatable darkness. Trois Pistoles pours brown with a sexy tan head. Aroma has dark fruits, caramelized sugar, toasted malt, and booze. Flavors redolent of molasses, plum, prune, raisin, grape, and a hint of chocolate. Yes, it’s similar to a Port. This is a dessert beer that’s actually mellow enough it can be enjoyed with actual dessert. And not so heavy you can’t chase it with another beer. Or maybe that’s just me... What? Who says you can’t have more than one Unibroue in a night?

tmongoose (1952) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 4, 2015
Bottle shared pours a dark cola color with a quick dissipating head. Sweet malty aroma, dark fruits, alcohol, and s Belgian yeast strain. The flavor is strong and more of the same. Very good flavor of sweet malts and dark fruits blended with a nice alcohol burn.

SG111 (806) - New York, USA - OCT 27, 2015
Best by 04-23-18. Pours a dark generally murky brown with a huge head. Aroma is (first) clove, banana, bubblegum (big ester tripel notes). Then after you get really classic quad aroma - dark ripe fruits, plums, fig, dates, roasted malt note. Flavor is sweet ripe dark fruits, again, plum, fig-heavy, spice notes prevalent. Solid quad. I’ve had this in the past and I remember it being better. It’s very good but it doesn’t stand out to me as being any better than any other really solid quad.

Speedy_Charly (190) - Plaisance, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2015
Bouteille de 341ml au Marché des Brasseurs. Brune foncée aux reflets de rubis avec très peu de mousse blanchâtre sur cette bière pourtant effervescente. Nez de malt fruité (dattes/figues?) et sucré sur un fond d’alcool boisé. Moyenne de corps, elle passe quand-même assez vite en bouche. Première sensation fruitée/sucrée suivie d’une légère amertume qui attaque le palais et le fond de gorge. L’alcool n’est ressenti qu’en rétro olfaction, mais réchauffe bien les tripes après quelques lampées.

Franckg (752) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 24, 2015
Embouteillée le 20/08/2015, bue après 2 mois. Robe brune foncée aux reflets acajou. Beau col de mousse blanc épais et onctueux. Dentelle mielleuse et collante. Arômes de baies confites, pruneaux, dattes, chocolat, levures, malt caramelisé. Belle complexité, légèrement épicé. En bouche, de belles saveurs fruitées prennent d’assaut le palais. Mûre, pruneaux, figues et dattes. Suivent les levures, épices et le cacao. Le houblon perce en finale par son goût plus amer. Texture plus légère que le laisse présager le style. Corps rond et bonne complexité. Mélange de saveurs et équilibre sans fautes. Un classique.
