0.375L bottle kindly shared by larsga. Low, lightly tanned head. Body is amber to light brown with ok clarity. Aroma starts with sweet alcohol steam in your face. Some fruit and bourbon and chewy malts can be noticed. Sweet and boozy flavor. Thick malty. Barrel tones and noticable bittering hops. Fat and syrupy in the mouth. Hot alcolhol finish. What a monster!

Thanks to yespr for that one. Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass also, brown, very small head. Fiery aroma. Starts very strong, malty, some fruity notes, but alcohol is dominating. Burning finish, a bit oily, long warming aftertaste. Really impressing beer!

Clear amber with a white head. Aroma is sweet malty, dried fruit and moderate alcoholic. Flavor is very sweet and light bitter. Very sweet finish with loads of alcohol. Sticky. Too sweet and too much alcohol for my liking. 230311

Medium beige head. Hazy brown body. Alcoholic fruity aroma. Sweet alcoholic taste with raisiny fruity notes. Full-bodied. Hot, sharp mouthfeel. Dry-sweet wine grapes and sugar aftertaste with oily hoppy notes. Lots of alcohol, but not much else. (0.375l bottle, Ølbutikken, Copenhagen.)

Agreed, there’s lots of alcohol... But what is so special is that the alcohol only comes after the taste explosion in the mouth: first a nutty hint, then chocolate and finally confited orange peels... The danger is that it srinks so easily...
