Gription79 (2408) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JAN 26, 2013
On draft at Humpy’s. This is the easiest drinking 17% beer that I have had. Burnt sugar, caramel, toffee, raisins in the finish. So damn good.

ekstedt (5708) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2013
Draught at CBC 2013. Clear copper/mahogny, light to medium beige head. Sugary, nutty, caramelly malt aroma, some herbal hops, alcohol extremely well hidden. Full bodied, medium carbonation. Sweet, medium bitterness.

mcberko (8113) - 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.

j12601 (7350) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Pouring at The Festival in Portland with Kramer, Andrew, and J-Dadmond. Pours a hazed brown with a thin white head. Big sweet plum and raisins, oxidization and wood. Big and chewy, lots of chewy malt. Sweet and very drinkable for its size. Oxidization, big plums and caramel. Definitely a beer best in very small amounts.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 4, 2014
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café during Hard Liver 2014:   3oz pour, big and sweet, boozy, some caramel, but not as complex as last years.   Rich fig/dates, lots of heavy raisins, bready... did I mention sweet?   Not as Cognac like as last years, that one had more barrel aging.   This one just seems super big and sweet, albeit its not too cloying.   Good, big, and strong, bit less barrel aging.   Still happy to have tried it tho.   Perhaps next time we can get some bottles to age...

marcus (7090) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dark brown with almost no head and a massive treacle and cognac aroma. There is a hearty dark molasses and brown sugar flavor with lots of cognac. Complex and tasty.

RasmusOtt (1353) - Aarhus, 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!
