38cl, new exclusive Danish brew Anno 2011, from De Hopduvel Gent, very complex brew, alcoholic/vinous and slightly woody/sweet, heavy, yet balanced, cloudy, good head, very good brew, yet very expensive!

A big beer. Plenty of nice lacing in the glass of this brown colored beer. I am getting notes of vanilla and coconut. Expected some tannins and I am getting rum. Nothing else really comes through. Very smooth though. Not bad but I am glad that I got a sample and not a full glass.

Complexa aromŕticament. Notes d’envelliment en fusta, aroma a fruita i un punt de flors. Cremosa. Final sec i alcohňlic. Per prendre amb calma després d’un ŕpat.

jesperhammer (3368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 27, 2012
27-APR-2012, bottle @home, from "Řlbutikken". Red/amber with lasting beige head that laces. Nose is tart almost sour-like with oak’y notes, alcohol, red wine, berries. Very dry. Taste is much the same. Not much big worse lesft. Dry, red Wine like and fantastic. Lovely. Even more so ón warming.

flemmingwillum (1079) - Nysted, DENMARK - APR 27, 2012
Rating #728, bottle from Toft Vin. Brown beer with a small and dissapearing head. Excellent aroma od vanilla, chocolate, coffee, cocoa, moisty wood and alcohol. Flavor of vanilla, hops, a touch of red wine, wood, smoke, citrus and it is quite dry as well. Finish is roasted and warming with a bit alcohol, smoke and wood. Nice bitternes. One of the most complex finishes I’ve witnessed so far. Could be sweeter and less dry. Nice carbonation but could use just a notch of more sturdy body. Really great beer all in all, though.

fiulijn (16144) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 17, 2012
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Cloudy dark amber and ruby color. Wonderful aroma, the classic malt of the Bad Worse merges perfectly with light red fruits, berries, and very light vanilla and oak. Strong malt and caramel flavor, evident but not excessive sweetness, some vanilla, with a mild note of red fruits and light acidity; the strong bitterness is maybe a clash here; there is some expected alcohol warmth; light impression of nuts too in the final.
The wine barrel adds an interesting note, but it’s not very cohesive, and doesn’t stand up against some best examples from memory (Fish Tale…).
