Very tasty. Had the vintage 2012. Complex flavor with burned malts dark fruit and a nice mildly bitter hop finish. A bit boozy but in a nice way. Prickly soft carbonation. Do not get the port so much but that doesn?t matter. Highly recommend!
Copper color with white head. Light woody/winey aroma and taste. Light malty with with net boozy edge.

Wonderful stuff, with great balance. Florals, citrus, prune, and some we done port like the harbor is on fire. Murky maroon pour with great head. Sweet finish. Everything a Belgian dark should be. Bottle. geolgau (544) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - NOV 18, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2017 Aroma: nice, complex, warm. Dried fruits, sweet malts, biscuits, caramel, standard belgian strong smell with just a hint of port wine. Taste is also standard for a belgian, sweet and oily (just like a port wine). Nutty, woody.Not much wine in the taste, but nice nonetheless. bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 8, 2017

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.

Full body and medium carbonation with medium alcohol warmth. carlom (119) - 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 (714) - 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! john44 (3456) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2017
