Holmen1 (6466) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2015
Flaske (årgang 2010), på rbhd-samlinga feb-15: vi nærmer oss slutten, men stemningen fortsatt preget av optimisme og entusiasme, tross mange middelmådige og noen katastrofale øl. Rødlig kobberfarge med svært kort skum. Vinøs aroma og smak - rosiner, kandis, fiken, svisker. En god og typeriktig dubbel. abemorsten (3683) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2015

Bottle from ABC. Pours a very dark brown with almost no head or lacing. Aromas are strong malts - toffee, caramel, molasses. Some dark fruits as well, with a solid yeast backbone. Really quite complex on the nose. Taste is sweet, full bodied, and long on the finish; quite boozy as well. Pretty creamy on the way down. Acquire. johnnymusky (1004) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 7, 2015

10 ounce sample on tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma is fruity, sweet, and full of caramel. Plenty of yeast esters here. Mostly hazy amber body with a medium to large off-yellow head. Good lacing. Starts quite sweet and sugary with Belgian Candi Sugars. There is a bit of a dusty yeast flavor in the middle. Finishes with caramel and toffee. Very easy drinking. A little too sweet.

April 2012 bottle opened for the new year of 2015.
Pours hazy amber brown with copper highlights, thin beige head that leaves trace lacing.
Big nose: sweet malts provide raisins, cherries, blackberries, figs, caramel with a touch of earth and a hint of spice.
All that continues in the glass with slight touches of nuts, hop bitterness, brown sugar and mild alcohol heat. Big, smooth, creamy mouth with low-medium carbonation.
Under AB-InBev, Pere Jacques continues to demolish most American craft beers. This is a step below Rochefort or St. Bernardus, but it is not embarrassed by being mentioned in the same sentence.
