330ml bottle, vintage 2009, brought back home from Ølbutikken in Copenhagen. Shared with Finn at the greatest tasting of De Molen ales beyond the Article Circle! Near-clear, apricot body. Polished surface. Sweet apricot and plums in aroma and taste with warming alcohol. Impression of sherry. Sweet, slow sipper (Tromsø, 17.11.2010).

These guys are great at making big beers that go down way too easily. In drinking Ungstrups tribute beer I feel like I am venturing into other people’s houses on tour. A tasty fruity sweet and subtle creation from the Dutch. This is a lesson in well used malts and other additivies in a way that is much more subtle than many of the monster US beers. There is a syrupy fruity aspect to the flavor I’m guessing is coming from the brandy soaked oak chips. Pours a murky muddy brown. Aroma of plum fruit and raisin. This would make a nice dessert beer.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2010
(Bottled, sampled 2010-03-02) Hazy amber with a very small, bubbly head. Rich-malty nose with berryish and dark-fruity, alcoholic warmth. Sugary-sweet flavor with grainy malt, dark fruit, some alcohol (not burning). Surprisingly drinkable for beer this strong, yet not quite an example in balance.

Thanks to madmitch76 for this fine brew. Pours clear copper with off white head. The aroma is rich smooth prunes, peaches, ripe juicy plums, apples, semi sweet sherry notes, caramel candy some oak and orange hard candy. The taste is upsettingly smooth and wonderful (where have you been all my life?) and rich and complex. It offers up succulent notes of rich smooth blended dark fruitiness, ribbons of creamy caramel candy, smooth molasses covered oak and sweet citrus orange like hop flavor. Amazing!
