Defreni (2603) - Husum, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2010
Flaske: Lækkert pop som flasken åbnes. Rødbrun klar øl med et fint skumhoved. Duft af frugtet gær. Smagen er klassisk belgisk med tydeligt lagringspotentiale. Rigtig fin skjuling af alkohol men man kan stadig mærke øllen er potent. Fin, smuk og flot øl.

Corked and nicely decorated bottle from ØlKonsortiet, Aalborg. A finger of dense yellow tanned head over a clear, dark mahogny colored body. Lovely aroma of cream caramel, milk chocolate, roasted nuts and pepper. Taste is more than medium sweet. Lots of English licorice and some burnt sugar/caramel. Notes of sourish malts and a certain fruity bitterness. Well-bodied. Alcohol warmth and a light astingency on the palate. Peppery, light sourish and light hop bitter endnotes.

ClubGonzo (3995) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2010
Deep coppery-red body with thin off-white head. Aroma is very fruity and sweet, with strawberry, peaches, wine yeasts and molasses. Taste follows suit, with cane sugar, deep malty fruitiness and caramelized apples. Palate is smooth and oily. This is a satisfying and very dense, sweet beer that verges on the edge of being too much but just barely makes in into balanced territory. Nice drinking.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2014 Aroma is Sweet. Some caramel, sugar, raisins and alcohol. Taste is sweet with toffee, caramel, raisins, yeast, a bit of alcohol and some bitternes in the finish. Decent!
