Another crazy bottle hooked up by Greg. Black pour. Sweet malt, booze, and chocolate nose. The taste is almost barley winish (think i just made up a word) with sweet caramel malt, chocolate, vanilla, apple, and dark fruits..

Rating #700 Bottle, huge thanks to IBrew2or3 for sharing. This beer was an experience. Poured black with a creamy dark brown head. Nose is intensely roasted with big notes of chocolate, oak, and brandy, lighter notes of vanilla, apple, and anise. Full body with a creamy, viscous mouth feel and soft carbonation. This beer is incredibly rich and decadent, I found the combination of roasty chocolate and apple brandy notes to be amazing. Finished moderately sweet with a lingering fudge note. Delicious!

Defreni (2997) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2010
Flaske: Kulsort øl med et lille skumhoved og nærmest tyktflydende olie i dens tekstur. Duften er ekstrem sødlig hvor calvados er tydelig. Smagen er igen fuldstændig domineret af en ekstrem sødlighed der fuldstændig overdøver alt andet. For meget for min kone, men jeg kunne sagtens nyde dens flydende dessert egenskaber, men 37 cl var faktisk for meget.

askofficerfriendly on the mad hookup! Black pour. Brown head. Loads of chocolate, molasses, booze, smoke, sherry...damn the flavor is even better. Chocolate heaven with some hints of sweet apples, raisins, molasses, light coffee and a hint of smoke. So good.

Big thanks to bu11zeye for this one. Poured an oily black with a deep khaki head. Nose is wood, wine, roasted malts, vanilla, and a bit more. Great on the palate, flavor is apples, vanilla, wood, roasted malts, chocolate, wow, that’s good.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours an inky black color with a few brown bubbles but no real head. The aroma is alcohol, dark fruit and roasted malt. The flavor is a mix of vanilla, brown, sugar, oak, smoke, cherries, other fruit and tobacco. Low carbonation and thick mouthfeel. A ridiculously complex beer that is very well done.

Aroma of chocolate, brandy, fudge, rich, wood, berries-fruity, barrel, caramel, apple, pretty awesome. Intense and complex. Also a bit musty. Flavors of fruit, tobacco, cedar, berry, calvados, fudge, molasses, port. Super rich, minerals, sweet, desert-wine, earthy. Sweet, thick, fortified wine, absolutely coating. Amazing.
