superspak (5891) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - AUG 29, 2017
375 ml bottle into snifter, no bottle dating. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy dark orange/amber color with a small dense cream colored with with good retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of huge raisin, plum, fig, date, peach, pear, apricot, red apple, orange zest, sherry, cognac, brandy, vanilla, toasted oak, caramel, honey, brown sugar, toffee, and biscuit; with light notes of herbal, grass, leather, tobacco, pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Incredible aromas with fantastic complexity and balance of fruity yeast, dark/bready malt, brandy/wine barrels, and light earthy hop notes; with big strength. Taste of huge raisin, plum, fig, date, peach, pear, apricot, red apple, orange zest, sherry, cognac, brandy, vanilla, toasted oak, caramel, honey, brown sugar, toffee, and biscuit; with light notes of herbal, grass, leather, tobacco, pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/grassy hop bitterness and brandy/oak spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of dark fruit, peach, pear, apricot, red apple, orange zest, sherry, cognac, brandy, vanilla, toasted oak, caramel, honey, brown sugar, toffee, biscuit, leather, tobacco, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Amazing complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity yeast, dark/bready malt, brandy/wine barrels, and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Slightly increasing dryness from bitterness and brandy/oak spiciness. Light-medium carbonation and very full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky, and lightly slick/syrupy/sticky/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Alcohol is very well hidden; a light-moderate increasing warmth, with minimal booziness lingering after the finish. Overall this an insane English barelywine! All around amazing complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity yeast, dark/bready malt, brandy/wine barrels, and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to sip on for the massive ABV. Insanely rich and complex; with perfectly balanced fruity yeast, sweet dark malts, and (assumed) Brandy/Sherry barrel flavors; with just enough hops to balance the sweetness. A highly amazing offering.

DuffMan (10610) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 23, 2017
Bottle, shared with thephantomhennes. Golden amber with a creamy head, looks pretty much identical to the Troncais. Fruity, golden syrup and apricot jam, definitely more toastiness to this one, with similar prominent vinous notes and nice acidity in the finish. Boozy, but not at all unpleasant or harsh. After two in a row from this series, we were pretty boosted.

Speko (471) - DENMARK - FEB 16, 2017
Bottle 0,375. Pours hazy orange with small off-white head. Aroma of wine, barley, molasses, banana, yeast, alcohol. For some reason I thought of the glue in model planes. Taste is molasses, yeast, bread, alcohol, some sourness in the aftertaste. Medium body, oily texture and soft carbonation.

Dégustation Mikkeller Fôret du centre light et medium, Fôret du Troçais light et medium, Fôret Limousine light et medium.
Une dégustation côte à côte avec ces 6 bouteilles avec Pat et Pat. La moins bonne Limousine et la meilleure du Centre. J’ai laissé SlovakSniper prendre des notes.
Limousin Medium 2,7; Limousin light 2,4, Tronçais medium 2,9, Tronçais light 3,1, Centre light 3,3, Centre medium 3.

SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 4, 2016
La plus intéressante du lot. Malts et liqueur. Il me semble que c’est davantage raffiné ou cohésif ou simplement plus buvable. Chaude en titi en fin de bouche mais à 19.3%, rien pour s’en étonner.
