Meilby (8551) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 28, 2015
Bottle 375ml @ Geokkjer
Pours cloudy orange with a small off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, raisin, plums, prunes, apricot, alcohol and sugar. Taste is heavy sweet and light bitter with a long warm, boozy, dried fruity and malty finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is flat.

Geokkjer (6239) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 28, 2015

yngwie (14715) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 28, 2015
Bottle. An unclear, orange colored beer with a small, off-white to light beige head. The aroma is rather sugary and alcoholic, with canned peaches, some pine cones and booze. It’s full-bodied and warming on the palate, with a soft carbonation. Booze, white sugar, canned peaches, bitterness and some resiny notes. Lasting finish. Way too warming this one, but there’s some nice things going on here as well. 150328

Ibrew2or3 (7262) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 17, 2015
37.5 Cl bottle pours with a crystal clear deep copper body that supports a nice tan head of foam. The aroma offers up big sweet malty sweetness, sticky brown sugar coated sun warmed smashed prunes and dates with restrained boozy heat at the end of the draw. The taste starts smooth, slick and luscious where sugary sweet malts mingle with molasses, prunes, dates and honey. It gains a nectar richness midway and then slides into a modestly boozy finish that feels like 9% rather than 19. Another great sipper.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
freretoc (982) - Besançon, FRANCE - FEB 17, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 37.5cl chez Will, couleur blonde avec pointe ambrée peu de mousse et effervescence moyenne. Une bière avec une forte attaque sur l’alcool et le bois au nez. En bouche début sur la noix trop prégnante. Continuité sur l’alcool très fort. On a l’impression de boire un vin oxydé à l’extrême avec beaucoup trop d’alcool.

bhensonb (11920) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours copper with a near-white head. Aroma indeed is somewhat roasty/toasty, and it smacks of brown sugar. Ahint of wood. Near full bodied. Flavor is oaky, mallty, treacle. Heat is present, but not very. Nice sipper.

marcus (7095) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours orange copper woth a nice beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a full-bodied sweet molasses flavor wirh a smooth oak finish, but a more harsh alcohol finish. Quite delicious.

Lore (1338) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 2, 2015
very hazy orange to light amber colour, practically no head; aroma of spicy alcohol, herbs, wood, caramel, as well as raisin notes; taste is the same with salty notes and highly alcoholic spicy aftertaste; ok, this high ABV is really too much for a beer - even for a Baley Wine

Renobob (1054) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 31, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 37,5cl. Nez boisé. Au palais, alcool, vanille, bois, pointe de sucre. Équilibre quasi parfait, concentration d'alcool assez prégnante presque trop d'ailleurs. Beau produit mais difficile d'accès.
