COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There’s plenty of fruit like orange, tangerine and sweet apples. It’s powerful and full bodied but still easy going. Although the name would suggest otherwise, it’s our favourite amongst the female clientele yet also highly appreciated by the other sex. Well hopped as always, but the obvious alcohol and the massive malt and fruit character restrict the hops to the background, only to reveal itself in the finish. Full bodied, notes of champagne. Champagne mousse after pouring in the glass. Grapes and a hint of mandarin curacao in the aroma, together with a hint of vin mousseux. Malty sweet flavor, immensely full bodied, with mandarine curacao and vinous notes. Thick mouthfeel, just a touch of yeast in the aftertaste. Huge beer. ABV on the label reduced from 15 to 11.9%. Recipe remains the same

Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - JAN 28, 2012
Bottle at Bishops Arms, Karlstad. Pours a red-brown color with a very small head. Aroma of caramel, toffee and fudge with some very slight dried fruit notes.. also some alcohol, of course, since this is a young bottle. Flavour is dominated by caramely- and toffee like malt, and warming alcohol. Fullbodied with flat carbonation. This is tasty, but needs some aging. But very good for being this young and strong.

MotherBrother (872) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2012
Pour hazy deep amber reddish, with a very small white head. Aroma is heavy of orange, caramel, syrup, candied dried fruits. Quite malty. The taste is pretty sweet, yet some bitter hoppyness at the end. Full body, with an oily texture, and a very flat carb. The 15 % of alcohol is very well hidden.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2012
On tap in 4:20, Rome. Dark reddish amber with a healthy off white head. A more subtle aroma than I was expecting of fruit, sugar and cake. Very tasty. You can taste the strength but it’s not too much which is of my liking. Flavour has sugary dark fruits, strawberry jam, more cake. I like it.

_angst_ (4142) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2012
330 ml bottle bought @ Ølbutikken and consumed on Januray 15. Pours viscous mahogany brown with almost no head. Smell is sweet with lots of caramel, raisins, figs and alcohol. Taste is very sweet and slightly bitter with lots of sundried fruits like raisins, figs, dates and prunes combined with caramel, burnt sugar, almonds, overripe oranges, wood, nectar and alcohol. Mouthfeel is sweet and sticky with almost no carbonation. Finish is sweet and floral with some caramelized sugar. Gets way too sweet after just a few sips but those first sips are very pleasant.
