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.

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 (3257) - 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.

rane (956) - Nibe, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2010
Bottle. Dark brown with small brown head, looking quite flat. Aroma first off all sweet, alcoholic, prunes and a little oxidised, not much port. Taste way too sweet, cloying, strong alcoholic and some very weak port notes. Finish weak port notes but most of all cloying sweet. I still haven´t tasted a barrel aged beer that convinced me that barrel ageing add anything positive to a beer. It takes away the freshness and and adds a lot of sugar and cloying sweetness.

Bottle. Almost identical to cognac-version. Frothy white fair mostly deminishing head. red-amber colour. Light malty and hoppy intense aroma. Light sweet and moderate bitter vinius flavor. Long nice finish. Creamy palate. Again too expensive and a little boring.
