dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Bottle opened at my "Massive Mikkeller" tasting. Opened right next to the regular Big Worse. This one, in comparison, had a nice peppery spice aroma mixed with the boozy maltyness. Took me a while to get around to landing this one but I’m happy I finally got it ticked.

Vestergaard (454) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2012
Pours rustic, filthy, cloudy brown with a thick light brown head. Smells surprisingly fresh. The red wine is present already, and combined with the sweetness it’s almost smells like apple pie. The taste is sweet, but works very well with the wine. Toffee and malty. Very nicely executed!

Cloudy dark red beer with a big pale tan fluffy head. Light palate, smooth and a little dry. Low carbonation. Light malt with traces of cream and barrel induced vanilla. Nice touch of red wine, not dominant but with good red berry fruits. Finishes smooth and semi dry. Very nice BA beer that belies it’s strength.

brnandersen (2027) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2013
375 ml. bottle, bottled a year ago. Poured in to a snifter. Dark amber colour with a reddish hue. Thin, tan head. A vinous aroma mixed with a heavy caramel malts. The red wine barrels really shines through: Red berries, oak, vanilla, and dark, dried fruits. A good hops presence, resin and floral. Taste is sweet. Full body, oily feel and a soft carbonation. Long lasting bitter finish with that excellent red wine barrel touch. A slight hint of alcohol. Excellent, this beer shows the perspective of barrel aging.
