reorulezzz8 (15) - Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Aroma-spicy fruit and fig.
Pours cloudy brown with a tan head.
Taste comes through with a whole lot of barrel character while remaining fairly balanced. Deffinately leaves you wanting another!

bottle shared by tom10101, thanks bro! pours almost clear brown-mahogany with a nice reviving light beige cap, some retention and lacing. spicy candi and lots red fruitiness - cherries, some sweetness - brown sugar and lean molasses, oak, minty and soft resinous notes. lively to average carbonation, medium body, very lightly tart and astringent grassy-oaky-spicy finish. not very complex but a very satisfyingly tasty barrel-aged dark fruity belgian. reminiscence of unibroue 17. quite enjoyed this one!

Bottle (375 ml). From Mark, thanks!



Appearance: Slightly hazy deep mahogany with a medium beige/brown head and little lacing.



Aroma: Dark fruits, strong oak presence, hints of vanilla, light spiciness and toffee.



Taste: Oak forward and quite acidic too with not much residual sugar, light spiciness, vanilla notes and subdued toffee.



Palate: Medium body (light for the style). Medium carbonation. Tannic. Fruity finish.



Overall: Not bad at all, but I’m not sure the result here is what was intended. It’s light and quite acidic for the style. Still, it’s tasty and somewhat enjoyable.

daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Brown pour, wispy tan head. Sweet and tart flavors. Oaky, brown sugar, hints of cherries, yeast. Interesting if not a bit odd.

3.8
Ibrew2or3 (8860) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 1, 2014
375mL bottle pours with a clear amber body that supports a light tan head. The aroma offers up malts, barrel notes, nuttiness, chocolate and brown sugar covered dark fruitiness. The taste is malty sweet yet it has some tart barrel notes and then more fruitiness toward the finish. The fruit leans toward dates with a smidgen of fig. Another tasty one from Justin. Keep up the goodness.

Bottle share T. Hanks to Beachner90210. Pours a hazy brown minimal head. Light brown. Taste is slightly woody with some alcohol from the beer, not the barrel. Maybe a Virgin barrel? Pretty solid but not phenomenal.

3.7
DrewFace (970) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Bottle share thanks to beechner224. Pours a fairly cloudy reddish brown color. Fruity esters, cherry, sweet malty and some light funk. Light cherry notes, alcohol, sweet, some light tartness in the finish.
