Bottle at oak aged festival. Very dark brown with barely any head. Sweet chocolate, chocolate icecream with red berry sauce and bourbon on the side... Very sweet but with a light fruity tartness. Medium to full bodied with medium alcohol presence. Beautiful.

Pint Oak Aged Beer Festival 2015 @ Stadsbrouwerij De Pelgrim, Rotterdam. Bottle. Iets te alcoholisch maar daardoor wel lekker veel pit, geweldige afdronk en nasmaak. Mokka ijs en bessensaus! Backlog from 2015/03/15.

erickok (5629) - Leuven, BELGIUM - SEP 24, 2016
Black body with small head. Served a bit cold TBH but still directly hit you with its rich sweet bourbon vanilla, milk chocolate and clearly present but well integrated smoked malts, of the woody kind. The aging didnt thin the beer much and added a strong character of its own. The smokey malt further help to make sure this is still a solid stout in the beginning. Grat stuff! (On tap at Borefts 2016)

Werckmeister (2512) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - AUG 12, 2016
0,33l bottle at home bought at Beergium. Bottled June 11th 2014. black color, very small coffee-colored head. smells of wood, bourbon, light dark fruity, some alcohol, liqueurish, some earthy notes, coffee, a bit glueish, some marzipan, light grape notes / sour notes. overall very nice barrel notes. full body, soft carboantion, slick mouthfeel. tastes earthy, light bacon, some alcohol, spices, bourbon, nice wood notes, marzipan, bitter almonds, some glue. finishes rather alcoholic / glueish with notes of marzipan, wood, bourbon. overall quite good one, but still quite alcoholic (too much so), if it wasnt for the nice marzipan / wooden notes this one would get even less points. gets even more alcoholic once it starts warming up (so better drink cold).

Big impy stout, that has a lot of character. Little subdued initially but when it warmed up it began to shine. Yum - like drinking an old leathery boot!
