Copenhagen Beer Festival. So it’s called Sherry Oloroso but was aged in a Taylors Vintage Port barrel? What? Confused on the day and confused ever since about this one! Rich malt sweet stout. Can’t taste any barreling here. Decent but was expecting more from a such a fine Port Barrel.

2009-05-26, draught at Plan B, Copenhagen, 6-4-8-3-15=36
Black color; medium head. The aroma is slightly better than the Conditioned, with light cask and glue. The mouthfeel is smoother, with a better harmony of malts, and a better balance for a bit more sugars in it.

2009-05-16, draught at Københavnske Øldage 2009, 6-4-7-4-14=35
Black color, no head. Too light aroma, for this beer. Quite good chocolate and roasted malt flavor, but the mouthfeel is drier than the Regular. There is a light Sherry touch, but overall, even if good, it’s less interesting.
