5cl sample from Carlo at the Oude Schooltje brewery on 23 Dec 2017. Really difficult to rate as a beer, as it's more like a nice whisky layered with chocolate and dark fruit notes. Very technically impressive, given it's still enjoyable and zero off flavours, even after the double eisbock process. A perfect nightcap. neepsntatties (2084) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 9, 2017
Bottle shared by “hannont”. Colour... very dark brown with no head what so ever. Nose...intensely boozy with dark raisins, dates, Brooks prunes, oak and plenty of phenolic goodness. Palate..big, broad in the beam and as boozy as a fine liqueur, this offers gobs of dried dark fruits, molasses,golden sirop, and fruitcake. Given the ABV, it’s not surprising that the booze is prevalent across the palate and well into the finish. This is good stuff but not a beer; rather a solid liqueur.

It's so special that we are not sure how to evaluate this beer. We like it, and we think it's a good complement for desserts martjoobolut (5468) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 23, 2017

375 ml bottle that AdamChandler received in a trade. Thanks guys overseas!! Almost a clear brown color. Aroma is mild malt and huge grain alcohol. Maybe raisins, maybe.

The flavor is not mild. Holy hell, massive alcohol. More rubbing alcohol. Massive burn, harsh. Yikes.
crystal clear pour with a raisin tint. no sediment. smells wonderful. salt, smoke, cocoa, sweetener. oh jeez. intensely bitter, boozy, just insane. The Laphroig barrel comes through quickly with smoke and sea-salt. wow. UUUUUUUH. insanity. nice bitterness there. Nisse666 (8212) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2017

F: alcholic, wee smoke, ash skortila (6025) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2017
Bottle at THT tasting. The aroma has chocolate, hint of peat, massive alcohol. Black coloured stuff, no head. The taste is East Europe home-distilled grappa/wodka with some tones of chocolate and peat. What a disaster. Luckily I am not blind now. Homer321 (5255) - Melboring, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2017
Bottle from a share. Nose is smoky soy sauce. Burns the nose hairs. Taste is charred alcohol and burns my chest. Holy bad. No. Just stop. Just a ton of smoked alcohol. Owe. dnstone (4019) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAR 8, 2017
Deep ruby-brown color with no head. Peaty scotch aroma, boozy, honey (mead-like). Smooth very peaty-scotch flavor with some chocolate and heavily charred oak, some honey sweetness. Like a chocolate scotch, or a scotch that had been aged in a stout barrel. The scotch-like burn lingers quite a while.
Notes: Bottle from the Struise shop in Bruges, Sep ’16; 2012 vintage opened Mar ’17.
