Palme (4410) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2016
On tap @ Borefts 2012. This is a dark brown one with a small heavy lacing brown and sidesticking top. Not extreme on the aroma but I get some chocolate-thing with woody borboun, red berries, vanilla and some alcohol. The aroma really opens up after a while. Oh, tasty! Chocolate powder, tons of woody borboun, vanilla and oak. Loads of flavor! Somewhat on the sweet side. Its thick and oily in texture with a average- carbonation level. Ends wood-dry with a lasting caramel-chocolate aftertaste. Impressive stuff. 30.09.2012

VDuquerroux (1453) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - JAN 30, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2015 Bottle, 75cL. Home. A dark brown-nearly black- beer with a big beige head : poor retention ; no lacing. Roasty aroma, caramel, fruit (prune, raisin), licorice, alcohol. Medium sweetness with a warming background, balanced with a medium herbal bitterness. Medium to full body, thin texture, soft carbonation, sweet warming everlasting finish, spicy fruity note (!). Overall, a fantastic belgian ale, interesting character, delicious.

Draft. Dark brown pour. Lots of tangy fruitiness on the nose. Dark fruits and citrus specifically candied orange. Flavor again is hugely fruity. And nice. most tropical, very sweet.fruits kind of ambiguous buy maybe berries. The bourbon lingers in the background with mostly general booziness.

Brown bomber poured into a glass. Black with dark brown highlights with small beige head. Aroma is dark candy sugar, medium body, low carbonation, and little small-bubble lacing. Taste is dark candy , bourbon, and dark fruit. This is good,I would have guessed bourbon barrel Pannepot.
