English: This beer was a lovechild from start to finish. Born as a result of good times at Fanø Bryghus between a bunch of thirsty and ticking frenzy ratebeerians and the hospitable brewer family The Witter-Merrithews. The occasion was “Fanø Bryghus Slumber Party 2012” a really terrible excuse for a great barbecue, good beer, funny games, excellent company and….brewing a beer. The beer was developed as a joint venture with everybody allowed to join in. Then brewer FrumptyDumpty transformed the input into a functional recipe. Although brewed in the midst of the bright (well…) Danish summer we brewed a rich and potent beer for those darker days: a Belgian-style Quadrupel made with heather and rose hips. Contributors (one way or the other!): Brugmansia, Christian, Dedollewaitor, FrumptyDumpty, Papsoe, princesslala, Theis and thewolf.

TBone (14782) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 19, 2013
Bottle @Konttori. Dark brown color, small steady beige-cream head. Aroma of plums, date, also kind of musty dark maltyness. Medium to full bodied. Plums, dates in the flavor, some alcohol. It has W12 feeling but lacks depth and has less alcohol. Candy sugar sweetness. I like brewing gang more than this beer.

KnutAlbert (6398) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2013
Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Very dark brown, fluffy head. Stable/barnyard aroma. Packed with flavour, but the figs are ruling. More like a private joke. Bittersweet.

Bottled. Reddish brown, murky beer. Creamy, thinnish head. Aroma: fermented berries, strawberries, clove-like yeast, a touch of herbs and alcohol. Slightly sour but more sweet flavor. Candied raisins, figs, a touch chocolate in the finish. Frothy texure, slightly sticky/sugary. A bit thin in the finish. Pleasant, but not very complex.

Bottle 50 cl, BBE 2015. Pours reddish brown in color with a fluffy tan head. Dark fruits, dark sweetish cake, some vinous notes on aroma. Smooth mouthfeel. Plums, vinous notes and just a bit of bitter grass comes forward towards the end in taste.

ClubGonzo (4889) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep, near-black, red-hued brown body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is a strange complex of red berries, meaty tones (!), caramel malts, herbs and hints of raisins and sweet estery yeast notes. Taste is sweet candi sugars, raisins, rose water, hibiscus, caramel, sweet yeast tones and hints of bitter herbs. Dry aftertaste with some bitter-herbal hop notes. Medium to full body, medium to high carbonation. A very strange creation and not really my thing, but I’m sure the merry crew of Danish Ratebeerians had a great time brewing it! :-)

Bottle at WWT III. Pours brown with a small to medium off-white head. Aroma is quite sweet with raisins, vanilla, dark fruits and alcohol. Taste is very sweet with raisins, dark fruits, quite some alcohol. Too sweet for me.
