The Port variant of Tsjeeses is something special. Its a spicy, malty Belgian holiday ale in the traditional sense, yet it tastes like nothing else out there. Brown pour that has red hues when held to a light. Smells like port, fruit preserves, and toasted barley. Prune, fig, plum, raisin, berry, vinous noir grapes, candy sugar, and honey flavors. The booze comes through just slightly. Theres a fat malty sweetness yet its countered by some complex spiciness. The feel is velvety soft. Were it not for the price tag and somewhat limited availability in my area, I would spend a lot of time with Tsjeeses.

Bottle. A- Caramel, butterscotch, raisins, candied plums. A- Brownish orange color, cloudy liquid, beige head. T- Candied dark fruits, caramel, complex. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth finish. O- A very fine beer. This one had about 3.5 years of age and it showed beautifully. Very smooth for 10% and drank almost like a port wine. Not too strong or too sweet, just really balanced and complex.

Hazy red body has lots of red fruit in the aroma and on the tongue. Belgian yeast plays deliciously with the port and oak barrel. A little sweeter than other versions.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2017 Bel. Colore ambra scuro, perfetta schiuma beige pannosa e compatta. Splendida al naso per complessit, con malto e caramello, frutta secca, canditi, uvetta e sentori vinosi. Buonissima anche al palato, bella la nota di botte, dolce con intensa cremosita, alcol ben spinto, corposa, speziata, riscalda benissimo. Carbonazione medio bassa.

Ik ruik en proef steeds minder, verkoudheid op komst? Wel lekker, en proef de Port er wel aan af.
