Cotteridge #3: 20th May 2017. Cheers Dan (The Osprey) for this beauty. Deep, dark brown body, tanned topping. Nose had some caramel like sweetness and sour dark fruits too. Taste is also caramel sweet, less fruity sourness, more woody and sweeter fruits flavour wise. Liked it.

Heritage 2014 bottle 15277 gedeeld door Inoven, geprobeerd met JoepvW. Het is een donker bruin bier met een volle bruine schuimkraag. En geur en smaak van eik is lekker aanwezig met een wat zoete caramel achtige smaak.

kapusil (1412) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 9, 2017
0.75l bottle, vintage 2015. Very dark ruby body with a thick light brown head. Oak aging becomes obvious after the first smell in the form of wood, vinegar and white wine followed by some orange zest, sour cherries and raisins. Taste of caramel, orange zest, white wine, lemon zest, vinegar, dates, pepper and floral hops. Wow, this is amazing.

Scopey (14511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2017
Bottle at Cotteridge Convention 2017. It pours hazy dark brown with a thick beige head. The aroma is sweet, sticky, candy, toffee, fudge, wood, candied fruits, caramelised sugars and wood. The taste is soft, sweet, sugary, tangy, heavy sweetness, jammy fruits, warming alcohol, liqueur-like, stewed pear and apple. Medium+ body and moderate carbonation. A bit sweet and sticky for my liking. Okay in small doses..

Ysok02 (1519) - Mons, BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2017
Robe brune presque noire, belle mousse crémeuse, noisette, persistante. Nez puissant et complexe sur des notes de café au lait, de noisette, de praliné sur un fond boisé vanillé, un coté fruits secs et figue à l’aération, de la richesse tout en restant élégant. Bouche à l’attaque souple avec un coté vineux, tout en gardant de la rondeur, des notes chocolatées, une bulle élégante, de la fraîcheur et une finale longue et acidulée. Une des plus belle réussite de l’élevage en fûts d’une quadruple. Très grande bière qui pourra évoluer de nombreuses années
