Bottle generously shared by Tony. Thick soupy pour that’s a murky poo brown in color with a fleeting mocha head. Sweet caramel aromas. Sweet caramel, brown sugar, and toffee upfront with the boozy cognac bite in the finish. Huge body with a mind numbing mouthfeel. I would love to have a bottle to sit down for five years or so.....

With a sweet nose, this cognac barrel aged Barleywine is loaded with sweet toffee and rich dates. This boozy friend will treat you well all night then take you home.

CBC. Light haze on this amber beer, no real head. Palate is soft and a little viscous. Mild minerals. Rich sweet malt. Toffee - slighly burned. Nice touches of dry wood and vanilla. Sweet cognac. All comes together in to a big old sumptuous treat of a beer. Best in fest for me! Fabulous!

Bottle pour at the Brouwers event. Pours dark brown with a dark fruit, boozy raisin aroma. Very bran flavor, and very smooth. No way this is 17%. Drinks easy. Great stuff. Love it.

On tap at Brouwer’s Hard Liver 2013. Really glad I got to try this one -- it was something else. Murky, muddy brown, with a tan head. Booze, caramel, some tart cherry, and gobs of brown sugar on the nose. Huge flavor that covers the 17% beautifully -- I really couldn’t believe the abv was that high. So much malt in here -- the flavor just explodes with dark fruits (overripe cherries), molasses, some seafoam candy, maybe a bit of cacao -- unreal that this much complexity came from a single malt. Huge, and very, very tasty -- I’m quite impressed!

Ktwse (1996) - SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2013
Pours reddish amber with minimal tan head. Aroma of sweet cherry, figs, brown sugar, cask. Very sweet port flavor with light balancing bitterness, some butterscotch in there as well. Full bodied and creamy with low carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vignale (2061) - 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.
