The beer is to be produced in 350L every year. Oak chips have been put in 40 year old cognac and then added to the beer.

Special brew made for Jens Ungstrups 40 year old birthday. Name is still provisional, other options were: Fourty, Fat and Finished (suggested by "friends" of Jens) - Fourty, Fit and Firery (Jens’ own version).

Thanks Patrik! Hazy dark amber. Crazy aroma - lots of wood, complex cognac that is deeply vinous, sultanas...gorgeous. Very sweet, syrupy, but very soft. Sultana palate with almost rummy cognac notes. It’s a little bit stiff in the finish, but remains soft, balanced and complex. Rich brown sugars - might be the most complex of the superheavyweight sipping beers. Indeed, this category has come a long way since SA Triple Bock - we are seeing real creativity and quality these days. Fantastic stuff.

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!

Bottled at Monk’s Café Sveavägen, Stockholm. Murky amber, more or less no head. Woody caramel aroma. Sweet and soft, totally full bodied. Spun sugar and caramel together with woody cognac. The softness lifts the beer to it’s full potential. Alcohol is evident, but works as a dimension adding flavour enhancer. A vinous wonderful sipper with peppery bitterness that keeps growing. As it warms dimension after dimension appears. Cheers Jens!

Slender foaming barley. Sweet aroma. The taste is explosive of sweet caramel, port wine, grapes, plums and a woody taste. It is a sweet barley with clear hints of fruit, heavy alcohol and malt. Soft, round and long finish where sweetness is highlighted. An exquisite beer that despite the sweetness, exudes quality and class.

Bottle at Ølbaren, thanks to Jens for sharing. Hazy orange redd coloured with a small (almost no) head. Sweet and vinous aroma of caramel, dried fruits, sherry, oak and vanilla. Sweet and vinous flavour of oak, vanilla, sherry and dried fruits with notes of alcohhol. Warming finish of alcohol and dried fruits.

Bottle from De Bierkoning. Pours almost without any head and a deep red copper colour. Wonderful vanilla oak and raisins aroma. Sweet flavours, some raisins, marcipane, nuts, slightly drier towards the finish. Like a great vintage port. Sirupy and full-bodied. Just loving it.

33 cl bottle, thanks Roger. Bottle #855/1134. Dark amber/brown color, almost no head. Aroma is dried, sweet fruit and alcohol. Flavor is very sweet, fruit and dried fruit, alcohol and oak. Not much bitterness. Very long aftertaste. Almost no carbonation. Extreme beer, but very good.

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.
