Lilja (1553) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2013
Fat på CBC 2013. Ett välbalanserat och komplext öl. Smak och doft av choklad, karamell, romrussin, ekfat, vanilj och tobak. Rund och lent och ligger kvar länge i gommen. Trevlig chokladbitterbeska.

mcberko (6047) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2013
On tap at CBC, pours a reddish dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma of toasted caramel and brandy barrels -- doesn’t taste that pungent to be honest. Flavour is very potent, with cognac barrels and caramel. Quite complex, considering the ABV, and the alcohol is very well-concealed. Very different for Anchorage’s typical beers. Great stuff.

caesar (4966) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2013
Tap @ CBC2013. Slight hazy amber color, just some lacing. Cognac and raisin in the aroma, toffee, caramel. Quite sirupy. Caramel malt. Big sipper, I like.

Vignale (2004) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2013
Draught at CBC 2013. Ett riktigt elegant öl. Fullpackad med söta smaker av romrussin, fat, söt tobak, vanilj, creme caramell och cognac. Kraftig med värmande alkohol som snarare lyfter smakerna än stör. Välbalanserat, komplext och lent. Ett underbart öl.

jmgreenuk (4112) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2013
Tap at The Mikkeller Bar. Poured a dark mahogany colour with and orange hue. The aroma is rich fruity and alcoholic. The flavour is rich bitter and with an oily texture. There is lots of alcohol based liqourice but it doesn’t dominate. A truly awesome beer, but I’d prefer a lower ABV so I could drink more of it!

Draft at Mikkeller. Pours cloudy dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, toffee, bread, raisins, overripe dark fruits and brown sugar. Flavour is heavy sweet. Extremely thick mouthfeel. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Very nice, but too strong.
