RasmusOtt (1255) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2014
Pours dark brown with almost no head. Aroma of sweet cognac, big syrupy notes, dark sweet ripe fruits, vanilla, sweets and a little bit of wood. Just big and sweet monster barley wine aroma. Taste of syrup, sweet ripe fruits, some dates, vanilla, molasses, sweet cognac and some "kongen af Danmark" sweets. Really big and slick Barley wine. This is good!

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Draft @ Humpy’s. Pours a very murky, rusty copper color with a tiny off white head. Aroma is almost all raisin and toffee, there is some light fruity esters and wood. Flavor is toffee/caramel, dark dried fruit mostly with some light bitterness and a very tame alcohol presence. Medium body with a mild, soft carbonation. Hard to believe this one is 17%, drinks like a 10% beer, really reminds me of smoother, cleaner, Tomas Hardy. I hope Gabe bottles this.

jmgreenuk (4922) - 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!

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.
