COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wrapped bottle, striped black paper.(Oak Whisky Barrels)
An 9% ABV beer in which the fermented sugars were all obtained from malt (20 degrees Plato). A generous dose of hops and a long maturation time makes this beer best of the best. This beer is bottle conditioned and will go through taste evolution during many years. Matured for a quarter of a year on a selection of whisky casks. (Translation by Martinus)

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, - JUL 17, 2011
{thoughts} Balanced, sourish flavor differs greatly from the succulent, sweet aroma.

{elements} Dark, cloudy, brown hue; short, tan froth. Intoxicatingly forceful aroma of chocolate, prunes, whisky and toasted walnuts with a hefty kick of vanilla. Moderate-heavy sweetness, moderate-heavy acidity, light-moderate bitterness; tastes something like a Belgian brown ale; sweetness is countered by a (slightly too strong) sourness; finishes with good tannic firmness. Medium-full body, lively carbonation, silky texture. 22 oz bottle @ GP Tuulensuu.

Alengrin (5902) - BELGIUM - JAN 2, 2018
Bottle from De Hopduvel shared with Goedele. Regular, moussy, yellowish beige, lightly lacing head, dissolving in the middle; misty brownish bronze robe with burgundy hue. Aroma of stewed pear, plum, candied cherries, butterscotch, whisky (indeed non-peated), gingerbread, wet straw, red apple peel, vanilla, old wood, nutmeg, brown bread, banana, candi sugar, vanilla-ish oak. Sweet onset, residual brown sugariness over impressions of banana, apple and peach, sourish blackberry-like note, noble and non-sticky sweetness remaining over a medium carbonated, supple and rounded caramelly malt sweet middle, softening bready edges, some spicy phenols in the end mixing well with the whisky impression, adding a gingerbread-like note, mild toasty bitterish accent, dryish tannic oakiness, warming alcoholic but not overly boozy finish. Very noble, elegant and technically perfectly executed update of a classically conceived Belgian quad.

Bijl (882) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2017
Bruin, veel gist, troebel, beige schuimkraag, weinig koolzuur. Aroma: Fruitig, donker fruit, rozijn, licht chocolade, oak , whisky, vanille. Smaak: Veel chocolade en koffie... mooi wat geroosterde mout, vol moutig, donker fruit en iets zoet. De vat rijping is subtiel.... duidelijk droog hout/oak, iets whisky en wat vanille. Deze houd het midden tussen stout en barley wine. Mooi zacht biet zeer subtiel. Alcohol merk je bijna niet. Redelijk volle body, dik en romig genoeg... niet helemaal stroop achtig. Afdronk is roasty, warm, bitterzoet en iets droog. Zeer Goed!

alteregoo (1829) - Kalisz, POLAND - AUG 13, 2017
Piana dość obfita i trwała. Barwa rubinowo miedziana, klarowna. W aromacie nuty quadruplowe - rodzynki, daktyle, melasa, kandyzowany cukier, do tego trochę wanilii, czekolady, parkietu i wosku pszczelego... W smaku sporo słodyczy, poza ww pojawia się paloność, lekka dymność, kakao, karmel, toffi, na finiszu rozgrzewające whisky, odrobina ziół, nieduża, pikantna goryczka. Średnie wysycenie, dość pełne (zwłaszcza jak na BA), treściwe, gładkie w odbiorze.
Piwo równie dobre, co wersja podstawowa. Wydaje się, że trochę mało w aromacie wniosła tu beczka - wanilia i dębina na poziomie leżakowania z płatkami (czy kostką) dębowymi. W ustach pojawiła się za to bardziej mięsista, oleista faktura oraz motyw whisky i motyw dymu ogniskowego, których nie było w podstawie...

Pretty much black. 1 finger express Crema. Smells like a fund aged barleywine with whiskey and vanilla. Tastes similar to HOTD adam with a bit more barrel. Same smoke content. Marshmallow, cream, Peat, smoke and vanilla. Smokey finish

Dark brown colour with thin head. Aroma and flavour have plenty of chocolatey malts. Light sweet whiskey and a slight but pleasant warmth of alcohol. Smooth and rich.
