2011 vintage. Poured a murky amber with a thick, frothy off white head. Aroma of sweet malt and spice. Medium body, sweet malt flavour with caramel and dried fruit, just a slight hint of the port in the aftertaste.

Robe brune, fine mousse, dense et concentre. Nez puissant et complexe sur des notes de caramel, de bois, de chocolat au lait, de figue, de raisin de Corinthe, de vanille, de cerise confite. Bouche lattaque lgante la fois fruite et pice, une bulle crmeuse, fine, de llgance malgr le taux dalcool, longue finale sur la figue et un cot chocolat. Une bire puissante qui garde de llgance. Superbe.

omhper (24781) - Tyres, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2017
Bottled (2011 vintage) at AndySnow tasting. Clear deep amber, rich head. Aroma of sweet red apples, caramel and raisin. Sweet with full body and well rounded mouthfeel. Oxidized caramel, mild tones of port, dough. Mildly warming finish. Very harmonious, but probably past its prime.

basjansen14 (304) - NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2017
Kwam uit het flesje sprietsen toen ik het dopje eraf haalde. Aroma: graan, zoet, donker fruit, port wijn. Smaak: zoet, graan, fruitig, wijn, alcohol. Veel koolzuur en een medium mondgevoel.

Erasmus_ro (2864) - Alabama, USA - APR 16, 2017
Bottle, 2013 vintage. Starts to come out of the bottle as soon as the cap is cracked. Left alone, starts to climb out on its own. Pours an auburn red with a very large, beige head. Aroma is fruity, fruitcake, boozy, yeast, fermented fruit, dried fruit. Hard fruit candy. Port wine in the background, somewhat sweet, honey. Taste is port vinous, dried fruit, caramel, fruitcake. Alright, but not too special.

jinroh (1505) - ESTONIA - APR 9, 2017
Nice wine barrel nose. Sweet dried fruits and caramel. Bit of musty wood. Sweet caramel glaze and honey sugar in the taste. Not so clear port there. Otherwise similar to other versions.

dnicolaescu (2477) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - FEB 12, 2017
BOTTLE 33 CL. Clear dark copper, compacted sediment, diminishing beige head, latent gushing. Vibrant sweet sugary dried red fruit, sweet dessert wine, light musty notes. Similar luscious sweetness, not alcohol whatsoever, light musty bitterness. Very good, but seems a bit flawed.

Goudbruin bier met crmekleurige schuimkraag. Aroma van alcohol, vijg, pruim, mout, suiker. Erg zoet, licht droog op de nasmaak. Flink wat co2, volle body. Melig in de mond.
