COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Beast is a seducer - accomodating, complicated, powerful, dark and created to last the ages. Beyond this, it’s futile to attempt to describe Him. He will unveil Himself differently to each of His followers. The mark is in His constitution. Brewed with two-row malted barley, honey malt, and imported Belgian specialty grains (aromatic, pale wheat, roasted wheat, and Special B), hops (Magnum, Galena, Saaz, Hallertau, Tettnang, and Hersbrucker), brewing sugars (raisins, dates, blackstrap molasses, alfalfa honey, turbinado, and dark Belgian candy sugar), water, Belgian yeast and another hellion of a yeast strain.OG: 1.138

yespr (30631) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2007
12 fl oz bottle, batch 3 - 2005. Pours amber with almost no head. Thick raisin aroma, dried fruit and quite strong. Malty, fruity and a whiff of liqourice. Sweet, very sweet indeed. Surpricingly wellbalanced. Although the alcohol is present and gives some warmth, it really doesn’t take over and leaves the feeling of a great brew.

Ungstrup (29022) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2004
A red beer with a beutiful light brown head. The aroma is fantastic; berries, especially cowberries, hops, and spices. The flavor is like black currant juice - that gives You warmth, since the alcohol runs down Your cheeks. An excellent beer. Thanks to Mads Berg for sharing this one.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Vintage 2005. Clear, dark amber with a small, beige head. Vinous and very alcoholic nose. The body is extremely full and potent with an overwhelming sweetness and alcohol. Complex character but I simply cannot abstract from my immediate impression of this tasting like coughing syrup. There’s definitely some herbal, medicinal notes in there. Very hard to finish, but probably would be interesting to age. As it it right now it’s simply too much of many good things. 170106

joergen (20493) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2005
Bottled, batch 3-edition. Cloudy orange coloured with an off white head. Acidic aroma with notes of fruits and dried fruits. Sweet perfumed fruity flavour with notes of dried fruits and hops. Dry hoppy finish.

oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 4, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2007 Bottled (Batch 3, 2005). Dark copper coloured, small beige creamy head. Glue and raisins in aroma along with stinging alcohol. Alcohol stinging in flavour. Kind of glueish and unpleasant plummy finish. Long sugary aftertaste.

omhper (19192) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2004
Bottled. Deep ruby, clear, small head. Big aromatic, vinous toffee aroma. Rich, soft maltiness. Sweet, but not disturbingly so. Almondy with a hint of licorice and some raisin. Thick, deep, syruy mouthfeel. Peppery hoppy finish. An enourmous, over-the-top ale that works well - at least in small amounts. This beer would do well from aging (and being available in smaller bottles).

anders37 (16250) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2006
Clear amber colour with small tan head. Very sweet aroma with some maltiness. Also some caramel aroma. Flavor is sweet and malty with some dark fruit and molasses. Some hoppiness in the aftertaste and warming alcohol.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2006
Dark amber color; small creamy head. Nice aroma, malt, very sweet, Barley Wine-like. Medium thickness, oily; malty taste, sweet in the beginning, balanced by a quite strong bitterness later. Too warming alcohol, light metallic aftertaste and not much complex. Good anyway. And powerful, of course.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2010 21st September 2008. Batch #4 16.4% abv. Clear brown beer. Very sweet creamy start with toffee and caramel notes. Some red fruit in the mid. Finishes with spicy licorice crispness and lots of spirity warmth. There is also a distinct honey note. Sumptuous. Delicious!
