pantanap (3365) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2011
De molen moot and machtig cognac ba. Little nip bottle #201 of 624 it seems. Purchased at olbutikken and consumed on iu first night in oslo (twas a good day).. Pours a hazy semi-transparent mahogany reddish brown pour with minimal head. Decent lacing/legs around the sides... aroma of a light charred wood and a oozg feel throughout. A distant note of peat, slighty fruity with a sweeter caramel backing... Flavors are of a medium sweetness with dark fruits and caramel. A slightly woody aftertaste is left as well as a boozy afternote. Slighty spicy finish. Rhin to medium bodied, hardly syrupy by any means. Pretty nice and above average. Thanks jeppe. 8/4/7/3/14

Rune (8202) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2011
180ml, bottle no. 103, bought at Ølbutikken in Copenhagen. Orange-brown body, missing head. Aroma of bready malts mingled with dried fruits and cognac. Complex taste profile with dried and ripe fruits, marzipan and earthy malts. A touch of cognac can be detected. Dry and sweet ending with warming alcohol. Slow sipper (Tromsø, 06.06.2011).

madsberg (10309) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2011
Bottled. Dark amber coloured. Unclear. Almost no head. ARoma of ripe fruits, sweetness, alcohol, spice and some caramel. Flavour as well is fruity, sweet and syrupy as hell. Lots of prunes and plums. Alcohol notable, but not overwhelming. Medium to full bodied. Ends on a quite sweet note. Very warming on lips and palate.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2012 2010 Vintage bottle@Kulminator: dark red/amber colour with virtually no head that quickly vanishes, very little smell, taste very sweet with lots of Sirop de Liège & brown sugar, cognac jam (patent pending), syrup, sweet malt, caramel, cognac-soaked raisins, almost liquor-like, warming but no alcohol taste, light, flat, amazing stuff, bottle nr. 378 /// draft @ ACBF 2012 / 2012 version: still same syrupy, sticky, messy goodness, love it

Amber coloured and faint hazy. Has an off-white head, fully diminishing. Aroma is heavy to harsh sweet, rosins, dried grapes. White port. Faint cognac perhaps. Heavy sweet flavor, dark berries, dried grapes too. Almost no bitterness. Syrupy texture and flat carbonation.

hopscotch (9242) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 26, 2011
Bottle… Clear caramel-colored ale with no head. The nose is a mélange of caramel, Cognac and a hint of beef stock. Full-bodied and velvety with lame carbonation. The malty, vinous flavor consists mainly of caramel, toffee and Cognac. Nourishing, lightly sweet, praline finish. Bottle courtesy of Plovmand!

marcus (6589) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 10, 2011
On tap at The Trappist. Pours dark brown with a thin beige head and a smoky chocolate aroma. There is a thick sweet toffee flavor with some plum and a syrupy finish. The alcohol is noticeable, but in a pleasant way.
