Bijl (907) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2018
Bruin, crèmekleurige schuimkraag die snel zakt, wazig  en iets koolzuur. Aroma: Moutig, donker brood, voldoende hoppig, donker fruit, rozijn, karamel, zoetig en iets fruitig van Amerikaanse hop. Duidelijk nog het basisbier herkenbaar. Op de achtergrond iets oak en cognac.... vrij rustig. Smaak: De smak volgt dezelfde weg.... vooral in de nasmaak hinten van het vat...droog hout en cognac. Geeft zeker een mooie twist aan dit al lekkere bier. De Amerikaanse hops zijn wel wat afgezwakt... iets meer hinten van donker fruit, rozijn en mouten. De finesse zit in de nasmaak....mooie barrel hinten. Wat alcohol warmte en iets plakkerig zoet. Beetje droog grassig en een prima bitter. Volle body, romig genoeg, iets siroopachtig. Afdronk is zoet met een mooie bitter en lang hinten van oak en cognac.....fruitig. Mooi!

Aromat za mało żłożony - czuć głownie chmiel, do tego alkohol i beczka. Wygląd ładny, ale trochę za mało ciała. W smaku ciekawe połączenie słodkości quadrupla belgijskiego z amerykańskimi chmielami, nie gryzie w przełyk. Alkohol, który w zapachu jest wyczuwalny, w posmaku nie zaznacza się tak mocno. Całkiem ok piwo.

Christos (5938) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2017
(Jopen Ongelovige Thomas BA Cognac) Bottle 330ml at home,ABV 10% Brown coloured body with red hues when hold against the light, small and thin tan head on top. Aroma of caramel, dark fruits, malts, some spices too, I don't get much of the cognac. Taste is sweet with caramel and dark fruits again, sugars, light spirits, alcohol, again cognac not so clear. Medium thin body, soft carbonation. Good, not much different than the standard version though.

mariuspoenari (3202) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2017
Semi-hazy ruby-brown pour with a thin beige head. Notes of toffee, dried fruit, figs, raisins, caramelized apples, overripe apples, smooth sherry, cognac, a bit of vanilla and mould. Super smooth texture, full body, sweet but also a bit bitter finish. Good stuff! I’m a fan of Ongelovige Thomas and this BA variant is right up my alley.
