Excellent brew, armagnac cask is noticeble, some vanilla, alcohol warth, fruit notes and very delicate grape taste. Excellent body, some sweetness, not too much. Some delicate calvados notes - apple, an excellent brandy-beer hybrid. Perfect strong ale. bartlebier (4526) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2017
500ml bbEND2022 No15579, origins unknown, could be a HH gift...? Paired in discerning Bcompany to go with crisp goatcheese & apricot brick dessert. #4000 - Now if I’d known this goes for £100 at the source nowadays I might have kept it cellared & served a pedestrian KBS instead... - Smooth & svelte mahogani pour, deepbeige head. Lighthearted aroma=bouquet of vanilla, fresh red plums as in ruby port, apple brandy (Calvados) and poireau, subtle cognac whiffs, milk chocolate left behind by Mon Chéri. - Fruity with apple&pear in flavour, like a distilled essence (Poire Williams, Zibärtle), chocolate underneath spread thin like a vapour. Amazingly light and silky on the palate, ideal for dessert pairing. The cask character outgrows the beer, especially the malt base on repeated sipping - a delightful dessert share.

The nose is quite nice: dried fruits, vanilla, toasted malts, woody, slightly liquor sweetness. the nose is getting sweeter and sweeter. Taste of wood finish from the cask, dry, toffee and caramel, dried fruits. Nice cognac/armagnac finish. Good one. Glad to have some in the cellar :-) DSG (18214) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 22, 2016

Garrafa nº 22653
Cor âmbar com tons caramelo, brilhante e translúcida com perlage intenso e denso; espuma marfim de alta formação e alta persistência com pouco lacing.
Aroma muito fresco e agradável. Em primeiro plano, muita maçã; percebe-se também caramelo e frutas secas (uvas-passa); em segundo plano, leve álcool e Madeira com um toque de conhaque e com a elevação da temperatura, vinho do Porto.
Sabor inicial de caramelo e maçã com final seco, picante, um pouco amadeirado e muito refrescante; retrogosto com dulçor de maçã , além de amadeirado e alcoólico, lembrando um pouco conchaque.
Corpo médio, alta carbonatação.
Altíssima drinkability, o que surpreende por ser uma cerveja envelhecida. MrTipple (11102) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2016
Wine barrels, oak, wood, light and dry tartness, undefined dried fruits, maybe apple. Clear brown, massive frothy and lightly creamy, beige head. Light, dry sweet. Dry sweetness continues, wood, some cognac (or armagnac probably in this case), alcohol, more dry liquor, maybe some dry apple schnapps, toasted malts, lively carbonation. Very interesting ESA, very complex, great aroma and taste, not overly sweet, nice touch from the armagnac barrel ageing. Bottle from The Bottle Shop, Bermondsey.
