CBF09. From tap. Pours hazy orange with a fully gone head. Aroma is sweet, hoppy and caramelish. Sweet to sugarish flavoured with a distinct bitterness coming through. Light spiced, fruity and solid sweet to acidic flavoured. Very elegant and smooth, all though a bit on the sweet side. Slight warming finish.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2009
On tap. Almost clear amber golden with a small off-white head. Intense, woody Calvados aroma with some caramel. Very full-bodied, lots of caramel, wood and vanilla with an extremely warming alcohol. Hardly any bitterness. To me the best beer at the recent Copenhagen Beer Festival 2009, and I was glad when the brewer revealed that this is gonna have a bottle release at some point. 160509

Copenhagen Beer Fest. Had a few by the time this came out on Saturday. Intense spicy apple nose. Rich malt and more intense spicy apple. Wasn’t capable of more depth by that but the beer was clearly unapologetically Calvedos!

Hazy dark amber color; small creamy head. Nice creamy aroma, very strong: caramel, apples (how?), possibly vanilla. Strong body, caramel flavor with strong alcohol feeling, apples again. Extreme as usual from Mikkeller. I prefer Barley Wines like the Bad Worse, but very enjoyable anyway!

Handbottle, 20 days later, 7-4-9-4-17=41
Hazy brown color. I will say only that it has an excellent caramel flavor, woody, with warming alcohol.

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2009
On tap at Copenhagen Beerfestival. It’s an almost clear, orange-golden beer with a minimal sized off-white head. Calvados, or just generic apple-booze dominates the aroma, with some sweetness and alcohol notes. It’s sweet and full-bodied in the mouth, with a lovely alcohol heat, and flavors of apple booze, vanilla, rum raisin, sour apples, some caramel, and a lovely hoppyness in the background. Resiny, warm finish with lots of sweetness and a good bitterness. A lovely one, but I think the Calvados leaves too much flavor and aroma, overpowering the base beer. But lovely anyway. (090516)

Tap at KBH Festival, 2009. Unclear amber with a creamy white head and lacings. Strong, sweet, smooth, malty, oak, caramel, orange, acetone, warmth and hops. A big one - and nice one!
