UPDATED: JAN 11, 2014 drank by a bottle ( number somewhere around 1140 i think) 18 cl at kulminator. highley recomended, so high expectations on this one. pours red with a nice foam. not red like rodenbach, or something like that. its a bit between a brown ( double) beer and red. smell is just pure bourbon to me . i realy dont like it, but normaly BA’s are no problem for me. the scent on this one made it very hard for me just to drink this one... after struggeling for ceveral minutes i finaly tasted it.it was the right warmth ( 12-13 ° C ) wich this beer realy needs, it has a certain ( warmth’ than that goes so well with the beer, it just goes in very, very smooth ! like a shark knife in melting butter ! the taste is just.. liquid caramel, mixed with bourbon or womething? the bourbon in the taste was rather less than the scent, but came back in the aftertaste. i can tell this beer is very nice made, and i understand in many peoples opinion i gave this one a to low rating. but its just i realy dont like bourbon, and is this one aged or mixed? tastewise definatly muxed i’d say ! and caramel is just one of the tastes i absolutley hate! lucky for me this was a small bottle and went in smooth ... rerate ; bottle 1042 wow , i guess tastepalates change . Or i had a bad bottle before ? This one’s realy full , sweet, vanilla , oaky , bourbon . actualy, i realy , realy like this one . feeling like a 4,4 medium taken at 4 , since i trust my taste more now, than back than . Had sides by sides with wooden hell , and this one was equaly good .

Bottle. Thanks a bunch KingCecil for this Nice gift! It pours brown with a small white head. The aroma is alcohol, bourbon, dark fruit, molasses, fruity hops and it has a slight acidic touch. The flavour is quite sweet and has notes of sweet caramel, malt, dark fruit, light chocolate, bourbon and brown sugar. Lovely flavour. Oily texture. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a flat copper color with minimal carbonation. Aroma is dominated by alcohol. Some bourbon, vanilla, and caramel are there, but mostly just booze. Taste is a bit more balanced, though still boozy. Vanilla, bourbon, oak, brown sugar, and toffee are also present. Plenty of caramel and some hints of dark fruit. Not bad if you can get past the extreme booziness of the nose.

What an incredibly awesome beer! It was dark when I poured and drank it, so I don’t have any idea of the looks of it.the aroma is stunning, whiskey, vanilla, barley wine. Taste likewise with hints of wood. Body is full and almost oily and the carbonation is very present for a beer of this style and alcohol percentage. topbeer!

Beer5000 (5319) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 13, 2012
On draft @ HaandBryggeriet Beer festival 2012. An amber body with a small off-white head. Strong aroma of dry fruit, caramel malt and warming alcohol. Flavor is sweet, really sweet malt, dry fruit particular raisins, vanilla and burning alcohol. Full body and looong aftertaste with the same flavor. Fantastic BIG beer, even being this sweet the alcohol and bitterness seems to create some kind of balance. The bitterness is almost not notable, but it just has to be there. Amazing and wonderful.

Bottle consumed at t’Arendsnest. Pours reddish brown with no head at all and an incredible fruit and malt aroma. There is a fruit and vanilla flavor with a lingering alcohol finish.
