Berghoeve Tsjuster Barrel Aged Jura Whisky Heavy Peated 3.8
bottle (from hetbiermoment.nl). Pours dark brown-black with brown head. The head stays. Aroma is peat, sweetness, dark chocolate, whisky. Flavor is sweet and bitter, roast, dark chocolate, malt, whisky, peat. Finish is long roast bitter with some whisky thrown in. Overall: very good, feels a lot like beer mixed with some nice whisky. Maybe a bit too much whisky/alcohol, but it’s less heavy than imp souts and works if you like nice beer-whisky mixes (I do).

Benzai
Berghoeve Tsjuster Red Wine Barrel Aged 3.5
Bottle [from trade with bierkoning] @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Opaque black color, average to medium sized brown head that diminishes fairly quickly. Aroma is malts, dark malts, only slightly a hint of red wine. Taste malts, again only slightly red wine, dark malts, softly bitter. Not a lot to tell but, lightly weird perhaps, somehow quite nice.

Berghoeve 1842 Hammer Brand Chili Porter 3.7
5/8/2012 1:28:34 PM Bottle from Bierkoning. I was resisting trying this beer, leaving it for last, as I’m no fan of the style and chili in a porter just seems weird. But very pleasantly surprised. Dark black body with thin tan head. Nose is malts, molasses and licorice. Taste is similar with molasses and licorice. Slightly watery texture. Chili is well done, not overpowering at all. Warming finish.

Berghoeve Tsjuster Barrel Aged Jura Whisky Heavy Peated 3.9
0.33 l bottle from ’Hetbiermoment.nl’, best before June 2017. Pitch black with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, brown head. Roasty-malty, slightly peaty aroma of dark chocolate, hard roasted coffee, tar and some licorice. Sweetish, roasty-malty aroma of dark chocolate, hard roasted coffee, burnt nuts, tar and licorice, followed by a long, heavily peaty, warming finish. Medium to full body, creamy to oily mouthfeel, flat. Very nice sipper, lots of peat, great mouthfeel, lacks a bit of complexity though.

Berghoeve Tsjuster Red Wine Barrel Aged 3.7
0.33 l bottle from ’Stanislaus Brewskovitch’, best before June 2017. Pitch black with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, brown head. Roasty-malty, minimally fruity aroma of dark chocolate, hard roasted coffee, licorice, tar and maybe minimal hints of red wine. Sweetish, roasty-malty taste of dark chocolate, hard roasted coffee, licorice, tar and maybe minimal hints of red wine, followed by a long, warming, peaty and roasty finish. Medium to full body, creamy to oily mouthfeel, flat. Really tasty, don’t get too much of the red wine barrel though (only if you know it - or am I just biased?). It’s actually an Imperial Stout/Porter since the hops are totally gone. By the way, I do not really see a big difference between the red wine and the whiskey version.

Berghoeve Tsjuster Barrel Aged Jura Whisky Heavy Peated 3
W aromacie bardziej jak słodki mocniejszy stout, dużo mlecznej czekolady, nie ma za badrzo ani nut chmielowych ani beczkowych. Podobnie w smaku, jest raczej pełno, czekoladowo, ale i cukrowo słodko, lekka nuta whisky wyczuwalna na finiszu, brak wanilin, no i co najważniejsze w stylu - chmielu. Goryczka też raczej niska. Takie se. Thanks @Douberd

Berghoeve Uut Eerder Tied 2013 Red Wine Barrel Aged 3.9
0.33 l bottle from ’Stanislaus Brewskovitch’, best before March 2016. Clear, very dark red with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Sweetish-malty, slightly boozy aroma of molasses, caramel, brown sugar, red wine and raisins. Sweet, malty and slightly fruity taste of molasses, caramel, brown sugar, some red wine and raisins, followed by a long, warming, sharp-alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Heavy winter warmer, very tasty and intense with clearly detectable barrel notes. One might find the finish a bit harsh but it balances the sweetness quite well. Nice sipper!

Berghoeve Uut Eerder Tied 2013 Red Wine Barrel Aged 3.8
330 ml bottle from my EU Secret Santa, many thanks!
Dark brown, slightly copper body, with almost no head.
Aroma of oak, red wine, ripe fruits, dark berries, caramel, leather, slight vinegar.
Tastes of heavy barrel notes, red wine, cocoa, dark fruits, caramel, vinegar, some tobacco, some booze.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes dry, sour, medium bitter, a bit roasty, a bit warm, wooden, vinous, with some cocoa, some fruits.

Very nice. The nose is really lovely, almost like an Oud Bruin, taste has more malty notes, but feels slightly unbalanced, although the barrel notes are really nice. Overall a really characterful sipper, while not the best such beer I’ve had.

Berghoeve Zwarte Snorre 3.8
Bottle [from trade with bierkoning] @ home. Opaque dark brown to black color, full sized brown head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts, light roast, dark malts, light hint of coffee. Taste malts, dark malts, a hint of hops, nice dark malt and slight hop bitter flavor, while overall it’s not so bitter at all. Some liquorice sweetness prevents bitterness from becoming to dominant, which makes this a pretty balanced imperial stout even at 11% ABV. Medium to full body, soft to average carbonation. Very solid, though a bit onedimensional perhaps. Would love to see what thus would taste like on a good bourbon or cognac barrel.

330 ml bottle from my EU Secret Santa, thanks!
Black body, with a big, creamy, coffee-colored head.
Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, some coffee, tropical fruits, orange.
Tastes of chocolate, coffee, biscuit, citrus, orange, some tropical fruits, some vanilla, alcohol.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes alcohol warming, roasty, moderate dry, a bit sweet, zesty, a bit fruity, with coffee, chocolate, cocoa, wood, some liquorice.

Tasty. The hops are a bit more in the background, but providing pretty tropical fruit notes. Although alcoholic, very smooth overall, because of quite a lot of dark malty layers. Characterful BIPA how I like it.

0,33l bottle at home shared by Saeglopur, big thanks. BB 03/2017. black color, small dark coffee-colored head. smells strongly of coffee, licorice, marzipan, nuts, toasted malts, hints of hops. quite nice smell. full body, light carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes rather alcoholic, some coffee, marzipan, licorice, some nuts, toasted malts again, a bit glueish, again only hints of any hops. finishes alcoholic with notes of coffee and licorice. overall good stuff, if I did not know this was supposed to be a Black IPA I would put it down as a Imp Porter or Imp Stout, good stuff, alcohol a bit too aggressive though.
