bu11zeye (12405) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 30, 2009
( 750ml bottle, courtesy of Ungstrup ) Well another beer named after…the man, the myth, the beer legend. Pours an amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, vinous, brandy, oak, and vanilla. Flavor of vinous, caramel, green raisins, dried apricot, and some light spices. Happy 40th, Jens!

Bottle. Clear light amber pour with a white head. Sweet cognac bouquet. Sweet and syrupy with caramel malt and cognac highlights. Maybe even a bit of honey & melon in their. Almost mead like. Average body and mouthfeel.

330 mL bottle. Murky deep orange. Smells of caramel malt. Oxidized with some sherry and oak. A little fruity. Tastes fruity too. Lots of oak. Raisins. Oxidized. Very sweet. Low carbonation. Heavy and sweet. I get no cognac, but it’s still pretty good.

mcberko (11204) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 7, 2015
Vintage 2009, 330mL bottle, pours a deep rusted opaque burgundy with a tiny white head. Nose brings out lots of cognac, with notes of oxidation, dark fruits, and alcohol. Flavour is extremely sweet, with lots of residual sugars, minimized booze, some caramel and a touch of cognac. The alcohol is very hidden; the sweetness is front-and-centre. Not overly complex, but a nice sipper. Very good.

TorbenJensen (1408) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2015
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.

rikstar (1766) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2014
fles uit 2009 bij speciaalbierpakket.nl vandaan, gedeeld met Bryanvdv. Dik roodbruin en zonder schuim of CO2. Geur is volzoet met overrijp fruit. Smaak is diksap met in de afdronk ook wat cacao en hout tonen. Coqnac is zeker aanwezig, maar ier wel erg zoet.
