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!

Bottle at home (batch 1134 bottle 760, vintage 2009). Orange-red beer without head. Aroma heavy malty ( wood, over ripe fruits, notes of cognac). Flavor very sweet with strong notes of alcohol. Body almost flat, very smooth, the alcohol is well hidden.

Defreni (2845) - Husum, DENMARK - APR 17, 2010
Flaske: Brun øl uden antydningen af skumhoved. Absolut ingen karbonering. Tilgengæld en lækker duft af karamelmalt der fortsætter i smagen. Vanilje og eg giver også et fint bidrag. Minder faktisk om Angels Share, men har det samme problem med manglende karbonation hvor vi havde været helt oppe og ringe. Men daym øllen smager godt.

Bottle. Pours cloudy amber coloured with no head and no bubbles. Aromas of caramel, oak, dried fruit, honey and warming alcohol. Super soft texture. Warming flavour with notes of honey, syrup, wood, raisins, alcohol and malt. Heavy and sweet, yet very drinkable stuff..

larsga (6684) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 8, 2010
No sound on opening of bottle. Thin coarse head. Hazy amber body. Deep syrupy toffee aroma with marzipan notes. Intense sweet plummy alcoholic dried fruit taste with syrupy earthy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild mouthfeel, but flat. Hardly any CO2 at all. Sweet honeyish strawberry and peppery marzipan aftertaste with earthy plummy notes and traces of apple. Totally lacking in bitterness, and therefore unbalanced. Not too bad, but would improve with a decade of cellaring. (0.33l bottle, Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. Bottled 2009-04-10. Bottle #532.)
