UPDATED: NOV 17, 2012 Bottle (330 ml) 2002. Huge thanks to David for sharing this beer! Hazy and thick dark amber with almost no head (as expected for a 10 years old beer) and some lacing. Aroma is incredibly complex with red wine, wood, apple, caramel, cherry and spices. Oxidation is barely perceptible. Taste is also really complex with wood, red wine, apple, caramel and spices. Thereís an important acidic presence (a good one) that made this beer unique and itís hiding the oxidation (which is still more perceptible in taste than in aroma). Mouthfeel is vinous, almost sirupy. Alcohol is warming, but when you realize the beer is 12% abv, you also realize that alcohol is pretty well hidden. This is really an amazing beer! Wonderfully complex and near perfect balance between acidity and big malty body. I would be curious to taste a younger version of this one. Merci David!

SkillsFactory (739) - ITALY - MAR 11, 2017
Special Reserva 2007, aperta l'11 marzo 2017. Rossa limpida con riflessi color rubino, schiuma beige non troppo persistente. Aroma di susina, fichi secchi, prugna, aceto di mele, barrique. Al palato prevale la componente acetica, mela verde, barrique, cantina, finale legnoso ed acetico con una nota di fichi secchi e la prugna che accompagna tutta la bevuta. Astringente, molto carbonata, corpo medio-leggero.

De Dolle Oerbier Special Reserva 2013 Pachnie trochę jak wnętrze browaru Cantillon :D Ogrom drewna, vanilia, wiśnie, ciemne winogrona, karmel, nuta dymiono-palona, czerwone wino, nieco funku. Nos jest tutaj cudowny, taka złożoność, ogrom nut aromatyczny, wzzystko intensywne o świetnie zgrane. Smak mocno wytrawny, lekko kwaśny, delikatna słodycz praktycznie tylko nadaje piwu kremowości i gładkiej faktury. Ciało nie jest za duże, ale to też przyczyną głębokiego odfermentowania. W smaku też ogrom się dzieje; jest bardzo winnie, są też dojrzałe wiśnie, dużo drewna, mokrej skůry, nuta karmelu. Posmak bardzo wytrawny, taniczny, winny, długi i interesujący. W tle lekki i przyjemny alkohol, piwo ma w końcu 13%. Jeśli ktoś by dostał to piwo na ślepo, to nie ma możliwości żeby nie pomylił go z winem. Cudowny, złożony i pyszny trunek. Wybitnie do powolnej degustacji i cieszenia się każdym wąchnięciem i łykiem.

Bottle shared with ebone1988 for the Koleminer20 turns 3k and Ebone1988 turns 1.6k Bonanza. 330 mL bottle received in a trade with berntholer, vintage 2012, bottled 2013. The pour is a darker brown color with a couple shreds of ruby coming through. There is a thicker egg shell colored head that falls to a thick ring and film leaving a few spots of lace. The aroma is really winey. There is a strong grape fruitiness and a good wine barrel character to it that Iím not crazy about. Itís decently crisp and clean but there is a bright wine character. The flavor isnít as good. Itís more wine forward with a heavy grape and a strong barrel character. This isnít really my jam. The mouth feel is crisp and clean and carries a good bit of carbonation and a lingeringly wine barrel and hint of grape on the back end. Itís good, but itís not that good.

Bottle shared with koleminer20 for the Koleminer20 Turns 3k and Ebone1988 turns 1.6k Bonanza. For the book. 2012 vintage, bottled 2013. Aroma is wine, barrel, sweet fruit, tart, sour, floral, good. Appearance is red brown, light brown head, mostly hazy. Taste is woody, some wine, fruity, tart, sour, eh. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, woody wine tart aftertaste. Overall, Iím not as impressed as I thought I would be.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2017 Gedronken januari 2017; flesje van 2012: Mooie geur met tonen van van (wilde?) gist. Complexe zurige smaak in balans: licht azijn, lichte eik, licht zoet; rond en mooie tannine. In de afdronk iets jong, íjongerí dan 5 jaar oud bier zou doen vermoeden. Gedronken februari 2017; flesje van 2010: De smaak is doorleefde, gerijpter, en krijgt nu een í9í.
