COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Ingredients: Floor malted Optic malt; Fuggles and Super Styrian hops.
Edition of 100,000
This full-bodied vintage is brewed with Fuggles and Super Styrian hops that create a tapestry of rich, spicy flavours. Orange, citrus and fruitcake notes are all present, and are balanced well with the biscuity, creamy malt flavours leaving a soft and warming finish.

Defreni (2618) - Husum, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2010
Flaske: Ravfarvet let uklar øl med et fint lille skumhoved. Meget vinøs duft. Smagen er også vinøs med tørret frugt og en anelse tobak. Rigtig god humlebitterhed bakker øllen fint op og giver en god mundfylde. Fin øl med et godt lagringspotentiale.

manuchampions (1237) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2010
Seasonal bottle from LCBO. Clear orange/amber colour with firm off-white head, leaving lots of lacing. Fruity nose with a rather restrained, but solid, malt background. Notes of dried fruit (apricots), orange peel, nuts and floral hops behind sweetish, fiery alcohol notes. Fruity, malty taste with orange, dried fruit, raisins, dark rye bread, hints of chocolate and a long, fiery finish with a solid, grapefruity, hoppy bitterness. Hops mingling well with fiery alcohol and sweet fruit. Medium to full body. Lovely finish.

Bottle, thanks Søren.
Had this after 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004 and 2005
Pours light hazy amber with a small, creamy, off-white film head. Aroma is sweet, malty, light metallic with some herbal hops. Medium carbonation, nice dry mouthfeel. Flavour is a little sharp, fine malty caramel, vinious and a light spicy hoppiness. Feels a bit sharp, but still a good drink.

Ughsmash (7159) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 3, 2010
Bottled. Poured slightly hazy peachy-golden with a nice cap of beige head. The aroma was most certainly delightful.. warm, lightly aged toffee, sourdough bread, and a blend of redder fruits accented by black pepper, blood oranges, and earth.. balance was spot-on, and there was just enough warmth to really make the character pop. The flavor opened with a little of the orange and peppery spice, backed quickly by sweet toffee and bready notes.. spicy on the back-end with increasing warmth.. fruity notes and a toasty, peppery yeast rounded it out well on the finish. Medium-bodied with relatively low carbonation on the palate.. well-balanced and engaging the whole way through.. it was really hard to find anything wrong with this.

Borup (5947) - Albertslund, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2010
Bottle. Deep red amber colour with a medium off-white head. Aroma and flavour of spice, fruit, malt, hops and sugar.

DSG (6162) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 26, 2010
Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks zvikar. Bottle #98283. Hazy reddish-brown. Very malty aroma with some wood, sherry, molasses, caramel and a bit of chocolate. Sweet flavor with chewy malt, cookies, wood, vanilla, caramel and a bit of dried fruits. Finish is drier with some hops. Thick mouthfeel. Pretty good but not my thing.

tomer (1747) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JAN 26, 2010
At a tasting, many many thanks Zvikar, almost no head, amber to deep red colour and a little hazy, aromas of dates, figs, some oxidised notes and hints of Pedro Ximenez sweet sherry. Flavours of figs, mollases, prune brandy, demerera sugar, dried apricot, raisins and fermented soya beans, with a touch of alcohol making its presence felt, body is big but certainly not heavy, long and exquisite sweet and sour aftertaste. A great beer to sip leisurlly.
