750mL corked & caged bottle from Beer Cartel.
It must be said - this beer has majesty before even sampling - an amazing bottle, a placard full on info, an just amazing appearance before a deep copper body is presented.
Aroma exudes ripe fruits, dried fruits, burnt caramels, typical phenolic & esters!
Body is unbelivably strong but works so well - wow! fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - NOV 27, 2008
Awesome beer. 750 ml bottle shared at WeeHeavySD’s 2000th rate tasting. Very sweet and fruity aroma. Flavor was more fruits and yeasty bread. A little tartness in the flavor as well. Some grape and apple fruits. Sweet malts 13% alcohol? I would never have guessed. Very very tasty. armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 16, 2012
Bottle...Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - MAR 29, 2009
Murky hazy copper/mahagony red one with a fine creamy off white head. Aroma brings the first shock. Woody tartness, some barnyard, berries, a lot of berries, tropical fruits, overriped bananas, spicies of vanilla, clove, dried fruits, prune...uhhh and the flavour: Oily bodied one, soft carbonation brings the wonderful character with a lot of fruitiness: figs, woody tartness, berries, dried fruits with some alcohol, soft texture, grape and some must. What a complexity, i can not believe, thanks!

0,75 bottle shared with markoijelena during a fantastic evening at Kulminator pub in Antwerp-Belgium. Thank you mortlach for the tip and many thanks to Dirk and Leen for being so attentive to our demanding requests :-) Pours amber clear with a decent white head. Nose is spirit, malty vinous notes. Mouth: slightly tart feel, sour in a way, light feel of liquor with a background of sugar. Nice one!

Bottle shared by matsciguy. Pour is cloudy copper with nice frothy head that settles to a collar around glass. Aroma is sour funky fruit. Taste is sweet and sour fruit with a tangy malty finish. Palate is medium feel with solid carbonation and a chaulky finish. Very good! craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 12, 2010
09 vintage. Dark brown pour with a good-sized, frothy white head. Aroma holds definite notes of wine at the start, then shifts to massive components of raisin, prune, date, sweetbread, candied sugars, caramel, and molasses-- classic Belgian strong, but with increased wine presence. Flavor is lighter and carries more of the wine barrel aging-- plum, nectarine, oak, bready Belgian yeast, and a beautiful presence of Cointreau and red raspberry at the finish. Palate is smooth and luscious, but you can definitely feel the bite from the 13% ABV, though it’s welcomed. Very very nice brew. Fred82 (2324) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2010
Bottle at a tasting thanks to glouglouburpNoiZe (2323) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2010
Appearance : Dark amber, medium creamy head.
Aroma : Vinous and woody. Notes of cherries. Quite fruity.
Taste : Vinous, oaky. Oak sourness. Tannic and a bit mineral. Very woody. No traces of alcohol.
Overall : Very enjoyable and interesting. At first nobody was sure if they liked it or not but after each sip it became better and better. Nose is awesome. Taste is a bit less. Very unique brew. Thanks Dany.
Had this one @ Unofficial Dutch Ratebeer Meeting. Copper colored brew. Sweetness, fruits in both aroma and flavor.
