Franckg (1542) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2015
Bouteille date de 2011, bue aprs 4 ans. Liquide brun tirant sur le orang, trs trouble avec un pais col de mousse blanchtre persistant. Armes de caramel, fleur de sel, sucre dorge, bleuets et raisins confits. En bouche, un bon got de sucre dorge et de baies envahit le palais. Le houblon perce un peu par ses effluves de pamplemousse rose. Les saveurs du porto se font sentir rapidement, alors que les tanins du raisin ainsi que son sucre fondent dans la bouche. On se rapproche beaucoup du vin dorge anglais mais la touche de Porto en finale donne une belle dimension au produit. Leffervescence est juste point, le liquide a une texture tout de mme paisse et une belle rondeur. Manque un peu de complexit par contre. Le haut taux dalcool ne parat aucunement.

Icedwarf (1516) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2015
Lichtbruin bier met veel schuim. Smaak is bitter hoppig en krachtig, fruitig aarbei en bessen en iets van grapefruit. Deze versie is wat mij betreft vele malen beter dan de Bourbon versie. Erg goed.

Bottle share round at Richys. Clear amber, with a bubbly, off white head. Very lively. Vine fruits. Port. Woody. Taste is tart, fruity dry. Its a bit too fizzy, but manages to feel fairly rich and smooth.

mR_fr0g (11413) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle shared at the Cads 10 year birthday tasting. Picked up from the school yard. Aroma is nice plumy fruits, stewed fruit, caramel. Mid amber coloured pour with a lasting greyish cream coloured head. Flavour is composed of plum, raspberry fruits, caramel, dark and nutty grains. A little warming booze in the finish is nice. Palate is semi-sweet, mid carbonation.
