Pours dark red with light beige head. Aroma of fruitcake, aromatic hops, caramel and wood. Very fruitcaky flavour with some piny hops. You can feel Cognac in the flavour but not so much in the aroma. And this tastes really good.

Bottle share at Tribes Alehouse. Pour is hazy amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma and flavor of orange liquor, wood chips, peach, oak, spice, and a touch of booze. Finish is fruit sweetness and mild alcohol.

Sample from a 750 at fauxbab. Glad to try this one, didn’t realize there was a ba version at the pub when they sold them a few months ago. Orange and stale hops. Lively but thin mouthfeel. Just ok.

angel77 (800) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 11, 2014
Botella de 75 cl en llamas en el momento en 03-05-2014.,,, fcp para 11-10-2016,,, color cobrizo muy oscuro y bastante turbio con espuma color beige persistente. Aromas dulces maltosos con toques de caramelo tostado y maderas empapadas en licor. Cuerpo medio alto con 10.4 vol que le dan una buena sensación de licor. Sabores bastante dulces y secos de maderas empapadas en licor con cierto final amargo. Regusto seco de maderas ligeramente tostadas y con toques de caramelos bastante duradero. Toques de naranjas amargas. Bastante buena para repetir sin duda.

gyllenbock (4433) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle, thanks Eddan. Dark orange/red with a large head. Sweet with raisin, orange, hops and alcohol. Not bad but not as tasty as the original one.

@ Eddan: tydelig lite søt smak av apelsin. Doften är inte så stor men smaken är rätt trevlig. Ingen större hetta med tanke på att det är en bw men ändå hyfsat trevlig. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy red brown beer, good pale tan head. Softish palate with fine carbonation. Creamy malt with a bitter toffee streak. Trace of dry wood. Bitterish orange and dark marmalade. Finishes creamy and dry. Bitter orange aftertaste. Very nice!
