COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Like you expect from a beer that has matured on an Armagnac barrel, the aroma after pouring out is intense, complex and alcoholic wich can point out the robust character of this special beer. You can smell some caramel and some biscuit odors. These come from the different malts and by fermenting on the wooden barrels. All this can also be found in the taste with some subtle nutty flavours, especially almond. The sweet aftertaste reminds of truffle. Domaine Marquestau provided us the barrels. They contained Armagnac for over 30 years."

kraddel (7530) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - APR 25, 2017
Sampled at Zythos 2017. Thnx for sharing, Ruben and Tim ! Pours unclear blonde, not much head. Smell is a bit plastic-like dry. Some apples. Taste is apples, weird funk. Overripe, sour-ish touch. Taste is a little cider-like, really.

mike_77 (6264) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2017
Clear pale blond appearance with no head. Aroma has lots of fruity and honey notes. Tastes quite thick and syrupy. The alcohol is balanced well by the sweetness.

ippopotamo36 (2293) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 11, 2017
Tap at Luppolo Station in Rome-Italy. Dark golden semi-clear pour, minimal foam. Nose: a bit acetic, really. Far too woody. Mouth: the barrel helped it a lot imo. Watery but with character. Wood and white wine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CapFlu (5123) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 28, 2014

hopdog (12129) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2014
750ml, caged and corked bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with an averaged sized head. Woody, vanilla, and fruity. Alcohol content well hidden. On the sweeter fruity side, but enjoyable.

Damico (3146) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Pours thick syrupy honey amber with a sandy colored head. Aroma brings the aramagnac barrel and syrupy booze. Flavor of the barrel comes forward as well with notes of honey a bit of tang as well.

NikkTwist (3051) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Draft at Eulogy. Top of an old keg. Cloudy brown pour. Minimal head. Browned amber fruit. Sulfured apricots. Golden prunes and raisins. Well aged. Thinned out quite a bit but still some hop brightness above the desiccated fruit table. Wood tannins. High ABV is felt but moderated by juicy dry caramel undertones. Eminently a strong sippable decadent desert beer.
