COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: 512 bottles of 37,5 cl made in the original 2007 version. A later 2009 version was released in 2011.

Danish: En Barley wine på 12% alk. Efter gæring har denne øl lagret i 9 måneder på ståltank, hvorefter den er lagret yderligere 12 måneder på Niepoort fade. Duften i denne ekstremt intense og komplekse øl er domineret af kraftige malttoner, hvor også rosiner og nødder trænger sig på. Smagen er fyldig, vinøs og portvinspræget med blød eg bag. Den lange eftersmag er varm og alkoholisk med en let sødme.

lusikka (6343) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 12, 2012
Bottle @ Ølfestival København 2012.
Pours a hazy dark brown colour without a head. Very rich aroma of dark chocolate, sour berries and red wine. Flavour of rich dark chocolate, toasted malts, nuts, sweet raisins, red wine and strong oak. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and a long, raisiny and sweet finish with some tangy red wine. Rich and complex.

Aroma is sweet and feels a lot like porto with sugary and fruity notes. Flavour is sweet with strong porto notes, raisins, some oak and sugar. Sweet stuff and very faithful to the barrel.

tiong (3818) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 12, 2012
Bottled @ Ølfestival København

Pours dark brown with no head. Aroma of strong port wine notes, tart berries and syrupy malts. Taste is very sweet with heavy malty and port wine notes. Finish is sticky, syrupy and overly sweet. Unbalanced, too sweet for my taste.

GT2 (8509) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 9, 2012
375mL thanks to phredrik. Hazy deep purplish ruby with low carbonation to near zero. Nose is super heavy black berry dessert/clafoutis French warm dessert with cherries jubilee. Taste is sugary to the max, mint, maple, alcohol, brown sugar, heavy cola. Palate is tangy, sugary, mild oil, bit malty starch. Okay. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Review # 3000, batch 2007, bottle... dark brown, a bit of mahogany, no head on the pour, light watery tan head barely visible after... the smells outstanding, fresh sweet malt, dark but sweet fruits - alcohol soaked prunes, cherries, red wine, rotten dark fruits, sweet alcohol notes, complex and perfectly balanced... the taste isn’t as balanced sadly, but still pretty damn good, the dark fruits really show but they are restrained not sweet, oak comes through a bit harsh, alcohol does too but not in a sweet spirit way as expected, a bit hot on the finish... I had the bourbon was better than this, but to me the bourbon is the best and one of most unappreciated beers out there

skortila (4558) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2011
Bottle, 2007. The aroma has wine/port, dark fruits, raisins, wood, yeast. Hazy, reddish dark amber coloured beer with a slightly off-white head. The taste is fruity malty, has wine, caramel, wood and is a little sour. Lingering taste. Full body. Warming. Very nice.
