yespr (31503) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2011
37.5 cL bottle. Pours dark amber to brown with a huge tan head. Aroma is wooden, acetone and phenols. Rather chemical - my wife gave up on this after a few sips. This malty, persisting chemical and ethanol dense. Light raisin sweetness beneath. Acetone and sweet malty finish, light pine touch way underneath. Difficult.

thewolf (11193) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2011
Bottle, bought @ Řlbutikken, Cph.
Pours deep brown with a nice, staying, creamy, grey-beige head. Aroma is sharp, has acetone character, oak, raisins, chocolate. Low carbonation, fine dry and fat creamy mouthfeel. Flavour starts with mild acetone, raisins, liqourice, roasted, fairly sharp tartness, oak, some rum. Okay dryness. Drinkable and pretty, but only just drinkable.

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 3, 2011
Dark mahogany pour with crimson edges and a tightly packed latte head. Aroma of rum-soaked raisins, plum, caramel, vanilla, ad a touch of cocoa. Flavor is quite boozy with hot alcohol, dark fruit, cherry skin, and chocolate. Medium mouthfeel...nothing special.

RasmusOtt (1212) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2011
Bottle. Pours dark brown with no head. Aroma is slight alcoholic with all the rum barrel quality, some acetone, caramel, dark sweet fruits behind and the usual christmas spices.Taste is red wine’ish, caramel, rum, caramel and sweet ripe fruits here aswell. I really liked the 2009 on red wine barrels much more than this, maybe I’m just not in christmas mood yet? Gonna try this again during christmas.

Papsoe (25084) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2011
Bottle 37,5 cl. Pours a very dark brown - close to black - with a creamy beige and lacing head. Odd acetone aroma, there’s really heavy paint thinner here! Solid body, some sweet overripe fruit but the acetone overpowers everything. No real traces of rum though. Something went seriously wrong here! 131011
