Draft at Whole Foods PM. Pours hazy dark straw with minimal head. Complex nose of hops, malt, woody tannins, red wine, grapes. Tastes like a slightly sweet barleywine, with more oak, red winey notes, berry-like fruit, and hops. Gets more winey and hot as it warms. Somewhat of an enigma, this beer straddles the beer/wine/spirit triple point marvelously. Inoven (766) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2016 Fles, editie 2015, gedeeld door TomHendriksen en gedronken met familie. Diep donkerbruin troebel bier. Aroma is zuur. Ook de smaak is heel zuur. Nasmaak is bitter en zuur. TomHendriksen (557) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2016
Bottle shared with Inoven, Joep, Bart en Hillig. It had a strong taste, sour and wood. Hopverdju (1313) - BELGIUM - SEP 15, 2016
Bruin bier met een robijnroode gloed en witte schuimkraag. Geur: Cola, Cuba libre, citroenzuur en melkzuur. Smaak: onrijpe druiven, zure krieken, niets van Madeira te bespeuren! De afdronk is een afknapper: looizuren en rottigheid.

750ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Clear dark brown color with red hue. Small size, beige head, stays. Raisins, bit acidic, woody, cherry stones in aroma. Red wine, woody, dry yeast, fruity in taste. Nice dry mouthfeel. Reminds me Rodenbach which is always nice thing to say about beer. I like it. FatPhil (16357) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 31, 2015

Belgian rating number 1000 - you’d better be good. Hmmm, erm, OK. Buttery barrely aroma, some spiritiness, more like a brandy, not getting madeira /per se/. Rather pleasant taste, plenty of woody tones, some cherry hints from that and presumably that’s the berries from the madeira. Sourness is spot on, like a rodenbach red, and has the butteriness to boot. Final pour from the bottle has a bit more vanilla. This is Dormaal’s strong point, and I almost forgive the earlier gushing horrors. Finish is brutally dry - banana strings, but I like it. WIney aspects in nice balance. WANT MORE!
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out Belgian yeast upfront, along with light oak. Flavour is very yeasty, with Belgian yeast, light rubber, and barely any barrel quality. Seems to be a bit oxidized. Not overly complex and the booze isn’t that apparent. Not so thrilling. wchesser (2082) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Muddled dark brown. Nose of tart dark fruit. Flavors of rye bread, caramel malt, tart dried fruit. Low carbonation, medium body. Ok, but falls flat. mstrcrwly (1000) - New York, USA - JAN 25, 2015
