Due to a string of coincidences, an oak barrel of Podges’ IS was kept for 6 months. At the end of its lagering, it was remixed with young I.S. in full fermentation, to form this unique cask - obviously very limited in supply.

yespr (37028) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2008
From bottle at Alvinne. Pours dark brown with a little lacing off-white head. Aroma is quite woody. Flavour starts with a distinct vegetable note, descendts into a caramel malt flavour before a solid liqourice note kicks in. After this mild wood note with vanilla reappears. Lingering spiced, woody and liqourice finish. Nice.

Ungstrup (31474) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 6, 2008
Bottled. A murky brown beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of whiskey, medium notes of over ripe fruit, and light notes of soy sauce. The flavor is sweet with notes of over ripe fruits, soy sauce, whiskey, and yeast, leading to a dry woody finish.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 19, 2008
(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Comes as "Alvinne Podge Oak Aged Stout" at 11% ABV. Clear, reddish brown with a dense, beige head leaving some lacework. Distinct oaky nose, some hard roasted malt and a light acidity. Medium-bodied, very lively, plenty of hard roasted malts, fruit and distinct oak notes. Lightly tart finish - mainly from the malt. Quite lovely but not that Stout-like really. 040408

Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival in KEGS. Bottle share. Dredged from the Podge archives. Almost clear dark brown beer, good pale tan head. Smooth palate, semi dry. Mild fine carbonation. Lovely mellow dark malts with mild dark chocolate. Mild oaky sweetness, little vanilla. Light gueuze vibe. Really well integrated apple calvados, mildly tangy. Returns for a brief hit of dark chocolate before a smooth semi finish. Never got to try this in 2009, despite several attempts. 6 years down the line this is drinking very nicely indeed.

Twickenham Brewery tasting 08. Very dark brown thick beige head. Some of that vanillary oaky flavour. Woody and herby. Not bad, but not my kinda beer. Some sourness.

Koelschtrinker (14127) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 20, 2008
Leicht süßer Geruch, etwas nach Kaugummi, karamellig. Sehr komplexer Antrunk, überaus malzig-süß-herb, minimal alkoholisch. Im Hintergrund etwas säuerlich, das Malz übernimmt die Führung, das Bier wird noch vollmundiger und extrem komplex, es findet ein ständiger harmonischer Wechsel zwischen süß-malzig und röstig-herb statt. Röstiger Schluss, etwas nach reifen Bananen, zum Schluss vergoren. Super Produkt!
