Tsjeeses Reserva, bottle from 2010 I believe. Pours almost a pinkish amber, 1-finger head which disappears quickly. Aroma has tons of fruit ( cherries, plum, grapes), Christmas spices, and candy. Very easy drinking and quite potent. I make it a point to get a bottle of this brew every year for New Years Day! ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Aroma deutlich nach Bourbon. Sprittig, alkoholisch. Geschmack deutlich alkoholisch, leicht süßlich nach trockenen Früchten. Sehr stimmige Kombination aus Whiskey und Bier. Sehr rund und ein angenehmer, mittellanger Abgang.

biilz (276) - SPAIN - DEC 29, 2017
Аромат насыщенный. Чувствуется ягоды и карамель. Цвет темно янтарный, пена отсутствует. Вкус весьма пряный, сильно ощущается карамель, в оттенке ягоды включая землянику. Послевкусие слишком сладкое и пряное. В целом это хорошее пиво но все же спорное для повторной покупки.

simontomlinson (673) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2017
Minimal off white head left a skim on a spritely light copper coloured body. Big aroma of oak, wood & booze. Medium to full bodied, thick & chewy on the palate with a cloying back. Very rich tastes of oak, sherry, brandy, berries & sour plums with long tangy finish.

tapefuzz (923) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 23, 2017
11.2oz bottle. 2013 vintage. Pours amber-y red with a small beige head. Aroma is spice, Belgian yeast, bourbon, plum, cherry, some oak, and some toffee. Taste is toffee, bourbon, vanilla, fruit cake, Belgian yeast, spice, plum, raisin, sugar, a little bit of oak, and some toast [7.5/10]. Finish of bourbon and spice. Medium-full body. Moderate carbonation. Mouthfeel is slightly oily and a little creamy. Best version of Tsjeeses.

alex_leit (5246) - Minsk, BELARUS - DEC 23, 2017
Bottle, vintage 2014, №11. Sparkling, brownish-amber color, very noisy yellowish foam. Very good aroma: old sherry, light sweet spice, vanilla with bourbon, plum wine, sweetness, oak. Taste: sweet plum wine comes from the yellow plum, sherry, bourbon, raisins, sweet spices, vanilla, light tannin's and bitter finish, very warming and powerful. Great beer for X-mas.
