Hazy amber with white head - Heavy wood and vanilla aroma - Malt body with a good wqood and vanilla flavour with some bourbon flavours in the back as well - The wood and vanilla flavours goes into the finish - This was real good

At Kerstbierfestival 2016 , thnx for sharing everyone ! Pours unclear amber, with sediment. Big white head. Smell is intense, oak. Vanilla, bit booze. Taste is sharp, full, oak. Vanilla. more to the bourbon side than to the port. Bit overcarbonated. Nice, but not the best they’ve made.

Benzai (16751) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2016
Sampled @ KBF 2016, Essen. Murky red-brown color, average sized off-white to beige head. Aroma is malts, bouillon, oak. Taste malts, whiskey, quite earthy, a bit dry, oak, bitter and sweetish at the same time. I guess the sherry might be the sweet influence.

kermis (14699) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2016
Bottle sampled at Essen Christmas Beer Festival ’16. Cloudy golden brown with a cream head. Aroma of oak, caramel, vinous notes, Bourbon, vanilla, toffee and malt. Flavour is heavy sweet and moderate bitter. Full bodied with alcohol warmth and soft carbonation.

[Thank you for sharing!][500 ml. bottle sampled @ O.B.E.R. Kerstbierfestival 2016] Dark brown amber, hazy going to murky, tanned head. Nose is wonderful very sweet bourbon dominating despite aging order, big sugar, vanilla, bourbon, raw pastry, dough, sugar, candy oak, dark fruits,... Lovely, taste is sadly not on par with the smell but still nice. Body is a bit too thin & fizzy,... Taste is boozy, fizzy, caramel, sugar, bourbon, lacks the necessary thickness to make it fully work, leaves, sugar, bread, raw pastry, bit too fizzy but still very nice. Quite an enjoyable beer still in the end.

daje (4548) - NORWAY - OCT 10, 2016
Haand Festival 2016. Red to amber body with a medium beige head. Aroma of sherry, funk, oak and peach. Taste of caramel, mild sweet, with dark fruit and grape notes, lightly boozy, slick malt and fruit finish. Very nice!

3.3
gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - AUG 7, 2016
500 ml bottle at home. Pours hazy - very hazy - murky brown, with a small pale beige head. Upon opening small gusher. Caramel malt and sherry in the nose - makes me somewhat think of the Cuvée De Mortagne PX. Also alcohol heat prickling the eyes. Medium body, high in alcohol heat. A tad sour and burning the throat. Taste is evolved malt, some oxidized notes, sweet PX sherry, sticky bittersweet hop. A bit of a bomb, and perhaps drank it too young.

3.8
TychoJames (1474) - �rebro, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2016
Fat brewers bar, Göteborg. Rödbrun kulör. Mycket grumlig. Doft och smak av bourbon, smörkola, äpple och fat. Något spritig
