Hansen (8248) - Assentoft, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2006
Very big differance between aroma and flavor. Aroma is a bit "thin", small hints of laqurice and medicine. Flavor is big, lots of fine laqurice, heavy complex bitterness, and long, long, long finish. Oily texture.

johndoughty (4772) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2006
Bronze and clear. Slightly fruity witj no carbonation and left no lacing. Very mellow, just like drinking a well rounded Sherry.The alchohol doesnít take over as it often does with beers of this strength. A lovely Christmas gift to myself!

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2006
Bottled. Pale reddish amber clear body with a low sticky white foam. medium sweet aroma of caramel, cherries, figs, licorice and alcohol. Cramel, toasted bread, figs, raisins and alcohol in the flavour. The alcohol shines through a bit too much in the finish with notes of almond, orange-peel and mild spices. This one really has potential,

Drank in an English pint. Clear copper poor with a THICK sticky light brown head. Aromas are of bread, peppery, hoppy, butter, a hint of vanilla and cask. Incredibly well balanced beer. Flavors are exploding. Flavors of caramel, nutts, maple syrup and casis. You can definitely the alcohol.
