Had a sample at mikkeller bangkok. Huge beer. Aroma of molasses, spices, orange, caramel. Bitter, very sweet and a little bit sour.

Procent (87) - POLAND - AUG 31, 2014
Aromat słodkich, aż kandyzowanych owoców, łączy się z winnym aromatem po leżakowaniu. To połączenie przywodzi mi też na myśl dodawane do piwa papryczki chili, jest dość ostry. Smak to połączenie owocowej, gęstej słodyczy barley wine z intensywną winnością, kwaśnością. Ciekawe połączenie, aczkolwiek dla mnie trochę zbyt kontrastowe. Alkohol wyczuwalny, ale na akceptowalnym poziomie.

Holmen1 (2467) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2014
Fra fat på Cardinal, Brewers’ Night (en herlig kveld for ølinteresserte): uklar gylden med hvitt filmskum. En innertier for alle som liker chardonnay. Fatlagringspreget og honningaktig alkoholsødme, uten å være klebrig søt i ettersmaken. Godt ganglag for sjelen.

DWF, tap på Cardinal’s Brewers’ Night. Dyp gyllen farge hvit skum, Vanvittig kraftig smak, for mye alkoholsmak. Denne var ikke etter min smak. En munnfull var nok.

abemorsten (2767) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2014
On tap at Cardinal during Brewers Night, Misty golden body with a white rim. The chardonnay barrel notes and the honeyish barley wine aromas mix very well. Sweet and fruity and alco warm. Full bodied and light syrupy texture with a dry tongue in the end.

Sigmund (5116) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2014
On tap at Cardinal’s big Brewers’ Night. Deep golden to orange colour, low white head. Revoltingly sweetish and alcoholic aroma, also strong notes of oak. Very sweet, oaky and alcoholic flavour, a little fruitiness helps the drinkability. To be enjoyed in small portions.

Holmen2 (905) - NORWAY - AUG 13, 2014
Hazy dark orange. Almost no head. Heavy aroma of sweet, white dessert wine. Similarly heavu taste, but the combination with a drier mouthfeel and lighter taste make sthe drinkability surprisingly good.

beer-yum (470) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 11, 2014
A huge beer that manages to conceal its strength with a finely balanced and full bodied flavour. Definitely one to sip and savour.

fiulijn (14533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2014
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Viktoriagade, as Big Worsterer Chardonnay
Muddy orange golden color with basically no head. The aroma is a punch of alcohol with some fruit (grape and peach), paint thinner. Full bodied, malty, fruity, jam; some glue; very sweet although the sweetness is cut by the burning alcohol. A bit vinous in the final.
Less cloying than the regular version, but still excessive and not exactly what I would like to drink in larger quantity.

vtafro (3422) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Draft. Orange pour with white head. Huge sweet aromas, light barrel and hints of wine. Sweet malty barley wine, not hop kick, just sweetness, some light oak and hints of Chardonnay on the finish.
