Don, man...this is a nice beer. I just opened the bottle you brought down in March. The Bordeaux is coming through nicely, balanced very well with the Flanders...This is some fine work. Pic does no justice at all to the coloring...find job!

Wow, thanks for the kind words! :mug:

I have a bottle chilling in the fridge now. My Brother-in Law is in town so we'll be sampling later tonight. I absolutely love this beer! I must make more, that barrel is just sitting there waiting. :)

I'm extremely happy to be the proud recipient of a bottle of this fine brew. 'topia - I know this has been aged for quite some time already. Do you recommend laying it down for a while longer or sampling sometime in the near future?

I struggled with this Yuri...It's been screaming at me for almost 3 months. I had to give in...A little more oak coming through in the second pour. Damn good though.

I'll be bringing my bottle to NHC this weekend to share with fellow HBT'ers. I can't wait to try this, Don. :rockin:

+1. I opened my bottle a few weeks ago. Fine work is an understatement. You've really got to get another batch going on this Brewtopia!

Looks great, but I would expect nothing else from Brewtopia.:D.

This beer is simply awesome. I had no idea it was 14,5%.

The lactic is placed perfectly and the oak is subtle but giving you that smidgen of "hmmm, that's nice...what is it?" (I didn't know exactly what this beer was when I tried it).

Great job, I'm now thinking of scaling up my Flanders so I can use some of that in this brew.
