czar (9338) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
bottle shared by albatross, thanks jeff! pours unclear dark brown-burgundy with a small light beige cap showing minimal retention and lacing. obvious grand marnier and its fragrant sweet oranges and almost astringent woodsy notes, tobacco; sweetish fruity, spicy and nutty caramel, hint of maple syrup, grass, minerals. average carbonation, light to medium body - surprisingly lean considering the abv, slightly boozy, oaky, semi-sweet, tannic and grassy-spicy finish. miscellaneous and motley flavors. very interesting grand marnier features though. but all in all the barrel blending doesn’t seem really convincing.

Alengrin (5633) - BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2014
Another special edition of Santa’s Little Helper, very similar to the cognac barrel aged version, but much less sharp tannins; subtle orange liqueur and orange peel from the Grand Marnier pierces through and adds to the complex but elegant and gentle character of the basic beer. A masterpiece, the perfect sipper on a cold winter night.

Yorker (2032) - Holstebro, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2014
37.5 cl bottle @ home. Pours dark brown with a little sediment and a light tan head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are chocolate, fruit, liquorice, and alcohol - with a slightly dry finish.

kathouse (1930) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Pours dark brown with a rich foam. Aroma of brown sugar, figs, and tree bark. Low carbonation with a medium thick mouthfeel. Complex flavors of toast, oak, sugar, and dates. Grand Marnier has an orange citrus note, but not really detecting here. Maybe some peel in the finish. Drying from the alcohol. Enjoyable.
