Entered to celebrate my 7900th Rating. Bottle @ Danish Summer Gathering, Ulfborg 2011. Pours cloudy amber with a small off white head. Bourbon, dark fruit , caramel and vanilla. So uffin complex. Kahlua, coffee and sweet milk - just much more complex. This is amazing. Sippable...

Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. Not much head produced, some beige bubbles though, clear, dark brown body underneath. The booze on the nose is sure present, but it just fills out the blanks, if any, left by the caramel, vanilla, oxidation, dried fruits, hints of chocolate and coffee and oxidation. The alcohol is much more evident in the flavor, sort of pushing, but far from annoying. Oxidation hints, some vanilla and a good dash of caramel and dried fruits. Full-bodied, warming and low on carbonation. Long, warming finish. A really nice beer, not sure if it deserves a top 50 rating, but it’s sure nice. 110819
