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.

Very brown reddish color. Rich sweet malty nose. Cherries, milk chocolate and apricots in the nose. Heavy full body. Lots of apricots in the mouth with sherry. Very interesting finish that tastes like sherry and oak. Very dry.

minihame2 (327) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 1, 2015
Dark brown, murky body, thick tan head. Sweet aroma, some malts but mostly you get the wine, raisins and such. Somewhat sour taste, yeasty, it’s almost like red wine with some carbonation. Soft mouthfeel, some bubbles but not too heavy. It’s an alright barley wine.

Davros (2545) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 22, 2015
Pours dark amber with a small head. Nose shows sweet caramel and figs, sultanas and sherry notes. Flavours include sultanas, fortified wine, caramel and oxidised sherry notes. Carbonation seems a bit full on for the flavours.

MarkoNm (1997) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - SEP 17, 2015
From a bottle at the Bevog 2nd anniversary. Pours a clear amber color, topped with a rather small off-white head. Biscuity aroma, some resin notes as well with a fruity backbone. Strong alcohol presence. Taste a bit resiny with a decent hoppy bitterness. Not a bad one, a bit strong, but nothing really amazing.

mabel (8014) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2015
[7042-20150130] 375mL bottle. Floral sweet toffee and earthy grains aroma. Slightly hazy, red orange body with a medium-lasting creamy light tan head. Bitter fruity pineapple flavour has a hot biting base. Medium-full body. Strange and hot. (7/3/6/3/14) 3.3

Overheard: "Is there a beer called ’Urine of A Coke Addict’?"

cmacklin (574) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - APR 24, 2015
375 ml bottle. Pours a ruby amber with a large, creamy, long lasting, beige head that laces. Malty aroma with dried fruit, caramel, wood and sherry. Sweet flavour of dark fruit, wood, sherry, a hint of caramel and a dry, bitter, hoppy finish with warming alcohol. Full body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. A complex sipping beer.

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 didn’t find it all that complex, but not bad.

[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 don’t know...finish is bitter. Medium bodied. Not great but pretty good.

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 can’t 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.
