Grzesiek79 (4276) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 9, 2014
Vintage 2012 in Cognac Barrel. Czarne geste i oleiste piwo z pachnacym koniakiem i armaniakiem zarazem. W smaku beczke koniaku od razu sie zauwaza pieknie to pachnie i smakowite mocne piwo, no wlasnie podwyzszony alkohol nieco tu przeszkadza w posmaku daje sie go odczuc ale naszczescie przychodzi finisz gorzkawy i mocno wytrawny ktory zaglusza go. Pozostaje koniakowy i drzewny posmak w ustach. Piana srednia i srednio trwala. Ciekawe swiateczne podejscie, polecam nie tylko na wspolke z Mikolajem:)

4.5
Alengrin (5255) - BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2014
Special edition of Santa’s Little Helper, elected best Christmas beer in Denmark. Has the same basic profile as the regular version but with sweetish cognac accents and sharpish tannins in both aroma and taste, as well as a dryer, more woody finish. Very demanding but rewarding ale but I liked the Grand Marnier version a little bit better. Undoubtedly a great provision beer.
