Also known as Hof Ten Dormaal BA Project 2014 (Blond Ale) Porto
The wonderful aroma of this beer is clearly indebted to the time that has matured in port casks. This manifests itself primarily in a well-balanced marriage of hand fruity notes of apricot and dried raisins, complemented by full-flavored caramel and honey accents and also a range of flavors from the wood. These can be divided into several, perfectly complementary fractions, from the resinous spiciness of green wood, a creamy center with hints of vanilla to the deep flavors of mature oak and dried tobacco. Towards the end, the intensity of the flavor is greatly increased by the presence of alcohol and impressions of solvent, which is especially the fruitiness benefits and reminiscent of apricot and fresh fig. This assembly is perfectly finished with a long lasting, slightly syrupy aftertaste that leaves barely resting on the palate.
