Pour is dark amber to brown with a small off white head. Aroma is sweet,malty,yeast and dark fruit. A very nice sipping beer with sherry type flavors and lite smoke and wood notes. Zer0 (1224) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2014
Draught at ’t Klooster, Delft, 2,5 years old. Pours cloudy copper with a thick long lasting beige head. Aroma is caramel, wood, grapes, fruits, toast, floral and malts. Heavy sweet and light bitter. Barrel aging really smoothened this out and it’s my favourite of the bunch so far. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Very good!

bottle. Pours a muddy brown with a tan head. Nose is of bubblegum and raisins. Taste is of raisins. Not very complex, but still tasty. Mouthfeel is medium and tingly with alcohol noticeable. GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Opens without a sound but pours with plenty of carbonation producing a fast head that rises and falls to a pancake that sticks. Smells of mineral, sweet malt and dried fruit. Full nectar with mild carbonation. A very malt forward brew with mild acidity. Sweetness on the tongue with nuances of dried fruit and butterscotch. The barrels are very noticeable creating a nice alternate to the usual quad. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 29, 2011
