Bottle. Muddy brown pour with large yeast chunks and no head to speak of. Aroma of redwine, port, butterscotch, plums, lemon, sugar cookies, light spices, cherry, red currant, berries and a few other fruits I cannot exactly place. Flavors of strawberry, bitter, super vinous, earth, vinegar, tobacco, wood. Oddly slick/oily mouthfeel that I find unpleasant. No carbonation. Different beer for sure. Long duration. Have very mixed feelings about this beer.

Sampled from Crown in Indy. The appearance is a darker orange brown. The flavors and aromas are medium tart grapes and cherries, some nice maltiness too. I like the bacteria in this one. Italians know how to make food and drink.

aroma is cologne, leather and well defined wood. cognac pour with nil carb. flat plywood mouthfeel, big wooden super developed caramel base with weak finish, too dry. much closer to an over aged barley wine then anything barely belgian.

This beer was kindly given to me by Pepsican, thanks much Andy. The beer pours almost flat with a hazy beautiful red color. Sam and my wife (Beeronmypants) both got some of that mocha swirl head so I guess this beer just hated my glass or something. The aroma holds such treats as toffee with some light tartness, some raisin and some brandy (specifically Cognac) with some cherry and earthy notes. A bit of wood shines through the aroma as well. The first taste of this beer was remarkably brash and didnt take on the subtleties of the aroma very well at all. The beer mellowed as it opened up though and the flavors tightened up a bit showing some fruitiness some booziness and some port wine with some dark fruit and plenty of tartness. A very delicious and interesting beer, Thanks Andy.

Light orange with almost no head. Caramel fruit and red wine aroma. Big tastes of red wine mild caramel and vanilla creamy palate and a smooth slightly oaky finish.

Thanks Pepsicanihave4beers! One of those trick beers one happens upon every few hundred rates where the taste is drastically different from the aroma. Aroma-mildly tart, vinous, slight caramel, bready. Flavor-a big slap in the face with cognac (although good, once I became accustomed to it). Candy, caramelly sweetness. Very low carbonation. A little spicy. Hated this at first, liked it by the end.

Few amounts on big loose bubbles. Dark toffee color. Sour, smokey nose and smells like an attic. First drink was a slap in the face as not what I expected. Flavor has smoke undertones with Carmel whiskey hints. Back of the palate leaves a slight pickle notes. The more I drink this the more I like it . Thanks pepsican

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 19, 2010
375mL at CK thanks to Travlr. Pours a muddy red maroon with no head. Insanely good nose: oak, tangy/mouth-watering balsamic, powerful lactic character, sour raspberries, lemon acidity. Great Flemish red style nose. Taste is weak, watery, void of pretty much everything. Slight acidic sourness and mineral water. Too bad. :(

Bottle at Churchkey. Murky light brown, five huge bubbles, no lacing. Aroma of citrus and clay. Flavor starts and ends sour, interesting bits of wood and earth. Worth trying.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2010
Bottle shared with fishingnet. Poured a deep amber color with a creamy, compact white head. Nose is vinous with notes of cherry, fig, oak, funk, and cough syrup. Thin to medium body and completely still. Flavor is sweet with moderate acidity, tart cherry, funk, oak, yeast, bread, and light vanilla. Finishes tart with lingering oak.
