gramity (1301) - Edmonton, Alberta, - DEC 30, 2012
Pours really murky dark brown with some beige bubbles for head. But they try to lace. The aroma is amazing. Citrus, dates, mango. I’m sure there’s a lot more, but I just can’t deal with it. Med body. It’s just slightly sour, a little bit earthy. It’s almost tannic. Raisins. Earthy turns towards barnyard. It does have the feel and some of the sweetness of a liqueur. But also a suggestion of brandy. Citrus. Mango. It’s a little astringent. And it keeps changing with time. Heat is not really noticeable. This is a quad to die for.

Lots of died fruity aromas of fig and raisin, surprised to read this has Brett. Very rich and not really tropical in any way. Alcohol very present but still pretty decent.

angel77 (511) - oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 30, 2013
Botella de 75 cl. En León durante buena parte de una noche de agosto de 2013. Aroma muy afrutado y floral, sobre todo al principio. Color ámbar-miel turbio con espuma blanca persistente. Sabor muy afrutado al principio (melón, mango, melocotón, piña… ) muy bien combinado con la malta. Amargor poco acentuado acabando con cierta acidez de la levadura brettanomices muy bien combinado con la madera de envejecimiento de Grand Marnier. Cuerpo medio fuerte con 11.4 vol maravillosos que hacen durar y durar a la cerveza. Muy Muy recomendable volver a tomar esta maravilla de cerveza, genial colaboración Mikkeller y Cigar City.

rxeight (1042) - Illinois, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Sample at faux-bab. This thing is a wave of tropical fruit. Orange, mango, pineapple, etc. Interesting to taste all of these flavors without the bitterness of an ipa. Very sweet, the orange cognac give it some booze but it mixes well with the fruit. Interesting concept and pulled it off quite well.

Bottle from Voldby. Clear dark brown with a big and lasting beige head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, dried fruit, fruity, dark sugar, wood and alcohol. Flavor is very sweet and moderate bitter. Sweet and moderate bitter finish with warming alcohol. Good beer but very expensive. 261013

Habanero (2134) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2013
Bottled. Pours slightly hazy and deep amber with a small. lacing tan head. Aroma of tripical fruits, brett, wood and citrus. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry, with some alcohol and bitter. Medium bodied, oily text. and soft carb. A nice and complex quad.

NatKadaw (93) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 16, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2013 Funky yeasty smell but incredible depth of fruity malty deliciousness. The body of papaya and the tangy edges of mango are clearly evident. As the beer warmed to near room temperature it noticeably improved. I was pleasantly surprised!
