5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
72 cl flaske, 225 kr for 4 cl. Purpur rød farge. Minner om fatlagret sherry mer enn portvin eller cognac. Tørket frukt og karamell i smak. Tørr finish. 4 cl virker lite for en øl men den drikkes som en typisk avec, og smaken eksploderer i munnen. Varer lenge.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted from the bottle, @Mikkeller bar, Copenhagen, 04/05/2013.
Pours ultra muddy, ditty dark brown, with some particles floating in it.
Aroma is phenomenal, no alcohol at all! Raisins, dried fruits, some port notes, slightly woody.
Taste is immediately warming, but with signs of booze again. A lot of sweetness, dark fruits, cherries, plums, slight tart cherry notes in the end.
Aftertaste is alcohol tickling, with lovely sweet prunes character.
A beer to drink on very special occasions, for sure -

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pour at Mikkeller&Friends from the 10th anniversary. Smells intense, of sweet brown sugar, alcohol. Tastes sweet, intense dark fruits, and tons of alcohol. Palate is harsh alcohol. Finishes sweet and strong.

Poured from a bottle, at Hank is Wiser, priced per oz. danish style ( lol) 2011? bottle I believe.
Rich caramel elixir, smells super rich decadent even and taste is no surprise. big strong flavors of caramel and vanilla come through no real burn though which I expected at 27% thats the most shocking thing, how smooth this is. great sipping stuff. glad to try this.

Line share at DLD: 10th Anniversary 29%
copper/brown....no discernible head.
Boozy bourbon,caramel, wine aroma.
Flavour of dark wine, fruits, caramel...
Almost a chocolate/sugary, molasses feel...
Amazingly smooth for the ABV...though it does sting and kick a bit.
Many thanks to the generous folks who wanted to share a taste!

Bottle (shared by a great guy at DLD13). Orange, cherry alcohol aroma. Dark amber color. Very sweet vinous plum malt flavor. Cinnamon in the finish. Very pleasant sipper (obviously) - surprisingly smooth.

30ml at Mikkeller Bar, served in a tiny tulip tumbler. Legs on glass. Smells of sherry and the taste follows. Mid bodied. Some burn in the finish. Enjoyable, although I preferred Brewdog’s Tactical Nuclear Penguin.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle share at DLD. Sweet boozy oaky aroma. Clear copper, no head. Syrupy sweet vinous dark fruit, woody, plum flavor with a light lemony finish. Smooth full, hot boozy body. Reminds me a lot of of a strong plum wine or a madeira. Was good, but not in a beer kind of way, and not worth the crazy price tag, in my opinion. Many thanks to the guy in line at DLD who was willing to share!
