11.2oz bottle. Pours reddish amber with a medium beige head. Aroma is fruit cake, toffee, port, sugar, spice, plum, and light roast. Taste is toffee, toast, some port, Belgian yeast, spice, fruit cake, and very light wood. A hint of raisin at the end. Some chocolate surfaces slightly from the port. Belgian yeast lingers, as does a little wood. A little bitterness. Some alcohol on the tongue, but more subdued than in the regular Tsjeeses. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Crisp-ish mouthfeel.

Bottle at home. Pours cloudy brown with a medium, bubbly light beige head, medium-short retention. Aroma is moderately oxidized (wet brown paper, sherry) port and rich, dark fruits with rich malt (bread, caramel, cookie), candied fruit reminiscent of fruit cake with soft alcohol notes. Flavor is bright alcohol, not fusel, with moderate oxidative notes of sherry and wet brown paper, rich bready and caramel malt, dark fruits and port with a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation with medium alcohol warmth. carlom (92) - ITALY - OCT 10, 2017
2013 - Colore ambrato, schiuma compatta e persistente. Aromi di uvetta, caramello. Al palato caramello, zucchero, canditi, legno, vino liquoroso, leggere note fruttate. Una birra dal corpo medio, dove le note barricate e di porto sono evidenti. La più equilibrata e forse migliore della serie. dorain (647) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2017
Die Version 2011 aus der Flasche im 2017-08 getrunken. Die 7 Jahre Reifung und der Portwein-Einfluß haben aus diesen Bier ein wunderbares komplexes Teil gemacht. Bislang mein Bestes aus der Tsjeeses Serie. Verdammt Lecker!

Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur ocre rouge- brun, mousse assez faible , tenue moyenne. J’imagine qu’ à la base, c ’est le même brassin que pour la "Bourbon barrel", pour autant, le viellissement en fût de porto change radicalement le breuvage, c ’est un peu plus doux et plus fruité, bref, oui on sent carrément le porto! Carbonnation moyenne. Trouvée à Roby - Menin. drpimento (3755) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 21, 2017
Really smooth, balanced stuff. Aroma is caramel malt yeast and grapes. Flavor is similar to nose comma sweet dominates along with caramel malt a little Spice in the background and bitter in the Finish. Excellent carbonation and body. Very nice drinking beer erikaraeb (269) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 19, 2017
Very-well rounded BSA. Mild aroma of roasted nuts and port. Tastes of even more port and woody brown sugar, finishes bitter with dried fruits. Avoids being syrupy or overly sweet. MelvinKalksma (1717) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2017
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, wood, overripe fruit, red fruit, chocolate and roasted malts.
Turbid/opaque dark orange/brown beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium beige head.
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, wood, overripe fruit, red fruit and chocolate; ends slighlty bitter and dry with roasted malts.
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Great to have a fucking 2012 version of this beer that I found online. That port barrel and the age softened all the flavours, but made it beautiful at the same time. What a lovely flavour, so rich with loads of flavours. The aroma is the only downfall of this beer, but the taste is marvelous.
