Barwa rubinowa, klarowne. Piana jasna, drobno pęcherzykowata. Oblepia szkło. W aromacie beczka, karmel, ciemne owoce, miód. W smak bardzo podobnie. Trochę słodkie, dużo ciała, alkohol świetnie ukryty. bierkoning (13239) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 6, 2017

Deze Batch was mijn eerste oak aged batch. Aroma is voornamelijk rode wijn, zoet, en wat eikenhout.
Smaak is rode wijn, eikenhout en wat zoets in de achtergrond. Vanille is nauwelijks terug te vinden in de smaak. Inbreak (5802) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - DEC 17, 2016

Bottle shared during the November THT tasting at deanso’s place. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a white head. Lots of caramel, grainy, sweet malts, oak, dark fruits. Flavor is over medium sweet, light bitter and a bit boozy. Good brew, not my style. mariuspoenari (2636) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2016

Bottle at almost Dean’s final tasting, but we’ll call it his final tasting anyway. Pours a clear amber, honey colored beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is oaky, syrupy, some port notes, light madeira, touch of booze. Flavor is very sweet, boozy, juicy oak with a nice hints of the base beer. Carbonation is soft, aftertaste is long and sweet. Nice.
