Thank you kraddel & tderoeck! Sampled 330 ml. bottle @ VCBF 2017. 2016 Vintage. Great history lesson / throwback treat. Amber orange, little white head. Nose is sweet oily toffee, low oxidation, orange peel, sugar. Taste is boozy orange peel, toffee marmalade, oily, more monolithic in taste than you would expect, bit boozy with toffee. Body is warming oily toffee, marmalade, oily. Feels like it might benefit a bit from a touch more oxidation so well made & well suited fro aging as inteded. Nice work for sure.

Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgie, consumed at Isobels, Eardisley, Herefordshire Thursday 22nd December 2016 Woah.....this is one sweet beast, crikey. A pretty tasty beer, its very potent, very thick in the mouth, really quite hoppy, but the sweetness is quite hard to cope with. This is one that I wish I could have shared with others. Ok.

Joli orange foncé. Mousse dense ne tombe pas, un exploit pour une bière aussi forte.
Au nez, ça sent l’alcool bien évidemment et le grain, un peu malté.
Dégustation 0.1 l à le Braufest Berlin 2016,
Miel acacia, grain avec force.

500ml regular bottle from Bochka in Moscow. Pours amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is caramel, malt, marmalade, alcohol. Taste is very alcoholic, bitter hops, marmalade. The booziness made it undrinkable, perhaps this was a bad bottle, because everything else I have tried from this brewer has been excellent at best and drinkable at worst.
