Ungstrup (29143) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2011
Bottled. A hazy deep red beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, malt, caramel, and spices. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, malt, cognac, caramel, and a bit of wood, leading to a dry alcoholic finish. Thanks pinball for sharing.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2011
Bottle 18 cl. Courtesy of Pinball. Pours a hazy amber with no head. Very sweet nose, caramel and overripe fruit - not so much Cognac in the nose. Very solid body, completely flat though. Sweet caramel and honey, vanilla and an oxidized touch. The barrel comes through a little here. Very warming alcohol in the finish. Delicious indeed but perhaps also a little sticky. 230311

omhper (19220) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2010
Draught at Monk’s Porterhouse, Stockholm. Clear reddish brown, miniscule head. Aroma of cognac and wild strawberries. Sweet and soft with deep, vast malt character. Fruity and intensely malty, warming and potent, yet balanced and elegant. Soem figs and port, fairly low bitterness. Fantastic stuff, like a cloud of flavour that surrounds all your senses!

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2011 24th September 2010. Borefts Beer Festival.
Clear red amber beer, no head. Light soft palate. Sweet malt with subtle port flavours with lovely sweet cognac. A little lactose sweetness in the undertone. Very well hidden 17.0%. Some strawberry sweetness before a dry finish. Immensely drinkable and I spent a good part of the second day with 8 glasses of this treat. It stood up to and was better than every other beer at the festival (and there were many great ones) with the exception of the Kaggen. Absoloutely delicious.

8th and 10th March 2011
Draft at Arends Nest. This great beer has developed further. Amber beer, clear. Zero head. A light touch of apple on the nose. This tastes like a quality sweet dessert wine that has a drop of cognac added. Lovely! On the 10th had a couple of glasses where it came across as more sherryish with sweet woody cognac. My work mates and many others - including the bartender - could not accept this as a beer. Shame for them - I think it’s a classic beer.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2012 At Borefts BF 2010. Very deep red colour thick beige head. Wow, that is quite magical. Sweet. Yes, some biterness. Full and fruity. Fruits are jammy and strawberry. Hops on aroma. Beautiful beer. No alcohol burn. Just rich warmness. Hell of a beer. Superb, rich and glorious. A sipper of a beer. Just the right side of sweet 849417 4.3/5.0 Re-rate At ACBF 2012. Even better. Love the fruit, cognac is just at right level. No woody flavours. Wonderful. No heat.
