COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In this version HvedeGoop has been barrel aged in Malaga wine barrels. Malaga wine is a variant of Sherry, which you clearly can sense in this very complex beer. Rare and delicious.

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2015
January 30, 2015 - tasting session with blankboy, gregclow, jercraigs and mabel. Green 375ml corked & caged bottle. Bubbly light amber with a solid frothy tan head. Aroma has quite a tang to it - (wine barrel?) - sweet, a bit boozy. Taste is fruity and sweet and floral and a bit boozy - very light barrel character, more on the nose. Average body, sticky, undercarbonated, with a quickish sweet only slightly tart and alcoholic finish. I didnít find it all that complex, but not bad.

blankboy (6412) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2015
[Bottle (375ml) shared with HogTownHarry, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m] Pours a deep orange-amber with an average size long-lasting frothy tan head. Aroma is sweet, fruity and alcoholic along with caramel malt and brown sugar. Flavour is odd one to nail for me: Hoppy and sweet and I donít know...finish is bitter. Medium bodied. Not great but pretty good.

jercraigs (8276) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2015
2015-01-30. Dark golden body with a small off white head. 3+ Aroma is quite fruity and sweet, dark fruit, figs, something else I canít place. Lightly oxidized I think? Notes of port wine. 7+ Flavour is odd, sort of a mix of bitter and sweet on first sip. Lightly warming alcohol, cognac or port like alcohol on the back of the tongue. Interesting fruit notes have a vaguely citrus like quality. Smooth medium bodied palate, light carbonation is possibly insufficient to carry the beer. 3+ Solid, but I am not entirely sure what I think of it. Bottle via trade with Duffman.

Bryophyte (1) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 2, 2015 does not count
Delicious and complex, nice foamy head, with a well balanced bitterness. High alcohol content not apparent in the taste.

reebtogi (4555) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 28, 2015
375ml bottle pours a hazy amber brown color with a finger of light beige head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is red wine grapes with some caramel and light fruits. Taste is a fruity and caramel malty sweetness and a grassy hop bitterness with a dry red wine finish. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. A decent barley wine, but finishes a little too dry for my tastes.

jookos (3105) - FINLAND - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle. Amber hazy. Slight woody, vinous, toffee malty, sour berries nose. Full bodied, quite smooth. Woody .. oaky ... light malty. Sort of a dissapointment. Nose has interesting stuff in it (mainly from the oak aging), but otherwise quite .. plain.The high abv does keep one sipping though.

mcberko (8269) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 30, 2014
375mL bottle, pours a cloudy dark mahogany with a medium white head. Aroma is full of wine barrels, oxidation and wood. Flavour is about the same, with the wine barrels upfront, oak and oxidation,. Something seems slightly off here due to the oxidation, but itís certainly still quite nice.

375ml bottle

BBE 06/12/17 - Pours dark reddish brown with a small head. Aroma of caramely malts, syrup, wood and berries. Taste is sweet, mildly hoppy and malty with some caramel, berries and hints of wheat. Finish is smooth, hoppy and grainy with notes of berries, syrup, berries and caramel. Not sure if I like this or not, quite dull actually.

laiti (6495) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 5, 2014
37,5 cl bottle @ home, BBE 06.12.2017
Aroma is sweet with caramel, some harsh malt and raspberries. Flavour has strong woody notes, some harsh malt, caramel and sherry. Alcohol is present but does not disturb much. Quite easy-going. Wouldnít call this a "very complex beer".

VertBaconStrips (2144) - Asshat, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 5, 2014
Face caverns: sweet sweet raisins, brown sugar, muddled orange, strawberry on the edges, fragrantly herbal, ripe cherry, caramel - in my category of best smelling brews. Tooth farm: strength with sweetness and an obvious herbal grip, thickness, brown sugar, caramel, orange, dry mouth, pepper, berries, elbows.
