3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled @ Jbrus’. The aroma is winey, grainy, fruity. Bit on the weak side. Hazy, red coloured beer with no head at all. The taste is quite sweet and fruity (oranges and tangerine), grainy. Quite thick and liquor alike. Reminds of the Utopias, but this one is better and cheaper. Can use some cellaring though. Then it will be the bomb.

Bottle@Home. Thanks Menno. Lovely aroma and flavours that combine great beer and nice cognac together in a balanced way. It would have been a masterpiece if it was only aged a bit (much?) longer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2010 From unlabled bottle @ jbrus’s place, kindly donated by Molenbrouwer. Marmalade in the aroma. Tangerine soaked in brandy. Immensely sweet flavor, but not really sugary sweet, more like malty sweet. Tangerine cake soaked in top class brandy. Flowery notes. Already delicious with strong mountain cheese, but needs a few more years to fully develop. Then I’ll re-rate...
Bottle @ home. Amber color. Dried figs, raisin and cognac in the aroma. Very low on carbon. Malty, almost sugary swwet, with clear notes of cognac, loads and loads of malt, dreid fruit, mango, tangerine and a hint of pepper. Thick and sticky mouthfeel.

Tasting session at jbrus. Bottled. Orange-brown coloured, no head. Cognac and fruity notes (predominantly tangerine) in aroma. Strong and fruity flavour, sweet with some sourness as well. On the sweet side, but i guess it’s made to be like that. Perfect dessert beer.

Drukket sammen med "slænget" på Ølbaren. Jens’ fødselsdagsgave.
Ræverød og uklar, intet skum.
Sød og vinøs, godt med alkohol i duft og smag. Rosiner og andre tørrede mørke frugter, karameller og noget krydderkage, træ. Ingen bobler he,r men let klistret og en anelse tykflydende.

Bottle at Alvinne pre-ZBF09. Good apricot, dried fruit aroma. Cloudy orange colour. Good vanilla flavour. probably from the oak chips. Very fruity and sweet, but balanced by a solid amount of alcohol. Syrupy mouthfeel, but that works well with the low carbonation and the high alcohol content.
