3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

2007 bottle. Poured a brown color with a small sized off white head. Vinous / port, dark fruits, wood, vanilla, and caramel. Side x side with the ’07 Cognac - this one blew the other away.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer pours dark chestnut brown with an off white had. The aroma is an aged ale with that aged evolved aroma in the nose. The flavor is a medium sweet malty body with some light booze and sweet notes.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 2007 vintage. A rim of beige bubbles sits on top of a clear, reddish brown body. Dried fruits, hints of cellar and oak, and alcohol hits the nose. It’s quite warming on the palate, with sweetness, dried fruits, a touch of caramel and some oak. Full body. Alcohol and dried fruits in the end. Yet another lovely beer from Nørrebro’s barrel project. 110513

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled at Københavnske Øldage 2011. Cloudy dark brown, no head. Raisiny port aroma. Sweet and full bodied, malty and soft with lots of raisin. Warming with some acidity. A bit too raisiny for my liking.
