Yes! it was a few weeks ago.

They only had two bottles in stock. So I asked them to keep one for me and my friends. Big Smile

It undergoes three different fermentations, one of which is in oak barrels, for around 5 months.. Smile

Yes the barman told us the story before he'd let me buy it!

They have a Jeroboam of 9% chimay special reserve in the fridge that I have my eye on.

Well, you are the first who seems to be seriously interested... Smile

Of course we can make it in September.

I'll open a specific thread and try to see how many people I can gather, ok?

Please help me!

Hi Jon, welcome to Beoworld and the beer thread.

That is a good Belgian ale.  Tried one a couple of weeks ago.  I understand it ages well in the bottle, changing significantly taste-wise over a year or two hence the release date.  Have you managed to drink any that is eighteen months/two years old?

Hi Duels,

Thanks! It's really nice, isn't it? I haven't yet sadly, I've had one a couple of weeks ago that was about 9 months old (was the August cellar release, and they leave it for 3 months before releasing anyway) and the taste and colour was noticeably different. Next time I go shopping I'll get a few bottles and leave one in the cupboard until it's ~18 months old and see what it's like!

I have a plan to buy 12 bottles and try one every couple of months for two years. It's great plan but I can see the potential for it to fail.

Brewed to coincide (roughly) with St Patrick's day last week by my local brewer.

Rich and dark (just like you Paolo!) stout with some good oatmeal flavours. At 7.2% heading towards an imperial stout. Doesn't taste anywhere near that strong and by the pint it's pretty deadly. Helluva good way to start a Friday!
