Vleteren Bruin 12° Oak Barrel Aged pours a very dark brown coloured beer, with a light beige head on top, almost two fingers in size, thick enough, with average retention and light lacing left on the glass. Aroma is dried fruit, honeyed caramel, light grape and port notes, vanilla, dark rum soaked bread, drier barrel elements. Taste is caramel and fruity port, dark toffee, yeast and honey, spicy bitterness, finishing with light chocolate and brown sugar. Smooth, medium heavy body. Pretty nice.

Monsieur Rock 6.6°
A traditional beer made with modern techniques. Bottle fermentation and dry hopped beer. Bottle-fermented and dry-hopped, Monsieur Rock is a bottom-fermented beer brewed using traditional methods by Jean-Marie Rock, a master brewer with almost 40 years’ experience. Monsieur Rock is a blond beer with a 6.6% alcohol content. It is brewed using just 4 ingredients: Pilsner malt, aromatic hops, water, and a specially selected bottom-fermenting yeast. This very low-temperature, bottom-fermented beer is produced using the same methods as were used to make certain special beers more than 40 years ago, making it a traditional beer brewed using modern techniques. The fermenting period lasts for over a week, and the beer matures in the maturation tank at a low temperature in the presence of aromatic hops. A specific yeast strain is used for bottle fermentation.
Petrus Aged Pale
Available online at http://store.belgianshop.com/special-beers/1368-petrus-aged-pale-73-13l.html
Petrus Aged Pale is honeyed lemon. Thick and sticky white foam. Attractive aroma of lemon rind, brett, and rose petals. Deeper swirls brings out sweetish malts and rich toasted oak. Soft but creamy carbonation. Iron comes and goes, with continual acidity and a restrained brett flare. Finishes slightly moist and sweet with a gorgeously harmonic culmination of oak and toasted malt hulls. Absolutely amazing.
