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.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 24, 2010
Bottled (from Ölkonsortiet). Very deep ambery brown colour, close to opaque, small beigeish brown head. Aroma is plum, some raisins, mild nuttyness as well as some winelike notes. Also some mild spicyness. Flavour is mildly toasted, some raisins, nuts, smoked wood as well as some rather plummy notes. As it warms up it gets more wooden and vanillaish. Brutally nice. Quite different from the other Barrel Aged Little Korknys... More? Yes please.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - JUL 28, 2010
(on bottle) This might be one of the best BWs I´ve had. Very complex and smooth, the mix of heavy beer and the port is present in such a fine aroma; I could snif the whole bottle dry, did I not have such a weak personality. Tart woody notes, soft with vanilla, wet leather, and fresh figs, combined with he rich maly and robust alcohol is great. Just a slight carbonation to swrl all the goodiness up. Draw a thick curtain of lacing on the glass, the taste is also hols liqouríce, some dried fruits; over al, a more heavy profile, wich the alcoholwarmth really compliments beautifully. Long and warm finish, some tobaco and more leather/port It´s simply a gem of a beer.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2010
Bottle shared by Max- Thanks! Pours a deep muddy brown with a thinning head. Aroma is oxidized already, fairly woody and earthy with some slight sweet wine notes, cognac, soy and meaty oxidation- almost pork or pig like- ham, some bacon in there as well- some sugary sweetness, and slight maple sweetness/oxidation with figs, and other dried sweet fruits. Flavor is more sweetness, maple, honey, soy, ox saltiness, meat, raisin, fig, deep toasted and stewed malts, caramel, toffee, molasses, plums, brown sugar, soy and slight papery oxidation. THe barrel aging really sped up the aging of this beer such that it seemed over 10 years old already. Not bad.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - APR 1, 2010
Bottle from Max. Big, sweet, lightly port, oxidized aroma, a lot of grape, malt, beet sugar. Strong, very flavorful, I guess, some metal and sherry oxidation notes, decently drinkable, heavy but not too rough. A tad boozy. A decent experiment, better than most.
