Piana obfita, średnio trwała, pozostaje w postaci chmurki. Barwa miedziana, dość klarowna. W aromacie głównie nuty calvadosu, jabłek, cydru, do tego suszone owoce, miód i zioła. W smaku półsłodkie, dojrzałe jabłka, rodzynki, figi, karmel, miód, melasa, kandyzowane morele, czerwony pieprz... Jednym słowem spore bogactwo. Goryczka ziołowo migdałowa, nieduża. W aftertejsie wosk pszczeli i toffi. Lekkie rozgrzewanie alkoholowe, średnie do wysokiego, drobne wysycenie, niezbyt gęste w odbiorze.
Paradoks, bo zabrakło mi tu troszkę pełni i słodyczy z wersji nieleżakowanej, która tam mi nieco przeszkadzała ;)

How the heck haven't I rated this? Bottle thanks to Todd. Pours a dark copper orange hue with a large white head. A big fruity spicy yeast nose. Big spices and yeast, oak, clove, some darker fruit. Huge flavors, soft palate, very smooth. Lovely.

Hazy brown colour, moderate sized creamy beige-ish off-white head; aroma of a bit too intensive yeast and alcohol, whisky, cognac notes, apple, biscuit, dried figs, cloves maybe walnut, too; taste of a bit burnt plum jam, raisins, burnt sugar notes, whisky, herbal liqueur bitterness and spicy alcohol; amazing 'beer' ! Many thanks for sharing, my friend, kapusil!

0.75l bottle. Hazy dark brown body with a beige head and floating sediment. Wood and oak comes first in the aroma, followed by cloves, toast, yeast, dark sugar and figs. Taste of plums, raisins, toast, oak, bourbon and some medicinal hops. Interesting that I would have thought that it was aged in bourbon barrels than in calvados. The taste is flawless, but the aroma is a bit too boozy. I like the non-oaked version too. This one is not necessarily better, but different. Like the other one this is awesome too.

Bottle Amy bought a couple of years ago at Hop City Birmingham. Honestly forgot about it. First beer for the rest of my life and celebrating having two phones. Chestnut brown color with a foamy tan head. The aroma is dark roasted malt and caramel plus Belgian yeast. Classic quad taste with a slightly boozy hit. As it warms, the Calvados really come to the front. Wish I could try them side-by-side but this seems slightly sweeter.

Beige creamy head left a good cover on an opaque, rustic, finely carbonated body. Malt, cream & dark fruits aroma. You can definitely smell the Calvados. Medium to full bodied. Big & creamy on the palate with a highly effervescent, tingly back. Very malt forward tastes with dark fruits, apple, demerara & hints of vanilla.

Donkerbruin bier met beige schuimkraag. Geur: moutzoetig, kandij, fruitig, appelmoes, alcoholisch. Smaak: licht zoet, appels, peren, alcoholisch, karamel. Medium koolzuurprikkel. Redelijk volmondig. Afdronk: warm alcoholisch en licht zoet, karamel en wat fruit. Klasse!

From bottle at VCBF; calvados barrel aged. Pott’s murky dark brown with yeast particles. Aroma is heavy calvados barrels influenced. Mostly wood, some apple. Nice!! Taste is malty, some yeast, also the wood and apples are nicely playing a big role. Above average carbonation, medium to full body.
