On tap at Borefts I. Unlike the base beer this version is cloudy amber - brown. Smooth oak with just a touch of vanilla and a very nicely judged amount of Cognac. Smooth woody brandy finish. No real alcohol heat! Lovely lovely beer!

harrisoni (13144) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
On tap at Borefts BF 09. Very cognac-y. It is good, but maybe not as good as the 2 other versions. Some toffee and some goodish orange fruit.

thewolf (11099) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 3, 2009
Tap @ 1st BBF, De Molen.
Pours muddy brown with a small film head. Aroma has lots of cognac, sweet caramel, oak, some herbal notes and raisins. Alcohol as well. Highish carbonation, nice dry and oily mouthfeel. Flavour is very sweet, caramel, some sharp alcohol and lots of cognac. There is really a lot of cognac going on in there... Still fairly drinkable.

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Trockener Cognac-Hefeantrunk mit mittelstarkem Hopfen, der sich schnell erschöpft. Tiefmalzig, ab dem Mittelteil sind die Cognac Einflüsse angenehm gesetzt und integrieren sich perfekt in das Malz. Aromatisch, dabei grasig, hefig, malzig, wenig bitter-scharf, was das Ganze abrundet. Zum Ende kommt ein Hopfenschub über das Bier. Genial!! 11/13/13/14//14

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2009
Tap @ 1st BBF De Molen. Very woody oaky aroma with some mandarin curacao and mango. Sweet flavor, very oaky with melon and mango. Pipe tobacco in the aftertaste. The experimental beer lacks balance, because of the dominant wood. Nevertheless a very interesting experiment.

Had this at the Borefts Beer Festival, De Molen Brewery, Bodegraven, Netherlands 30-10-09 I had only a very small sample of this courtesy of Ken? Cheers mate. Much better than the Simcoe version, pours mid brown bit murky, quite fruity once again the alcohol is very well disguised, the cognac really does show, good stuff. A8 A3 F7 P4 Ov15 3.7

A Mes rate. Draught at 1st Borefts Beer Festival.
Cloudy mahogany with a thin film of off white collar. Looks like it means business and my god it does. Amazing smoky wood and sweet congac litterally fall out of the glass and bombard the senses. It’s seriously over the top yet, for all I’d like to cut this beer in half, it’s just awesome. The dry, charred oak and the boozy spirits sit together REALLY well. Some alcohol flavours but remarkably little heat, burnt fruit pie, and excellent caramel. Surprisingly drinkable for what it is, yet I know I couldn’t drink much of it. Way over the top and over indulgent but wow wow wow, it’s just an epic beer.
