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 Bourbon fade. Aromaen af denne helt ekstremt intense og komplekse øl er domineret af krydret bourbon og vanille med toner af malt og tørret frugt. Smagen er tør og kompleks med tydelig eg og et friskt lille syrligt ”touch”. Den lange eftersmag er krydret, rig og sødmefuld.

Woodshed 2.0. Huge thanks to stobbe74 for shipping me this over two years ago. Soeren!! The bottle pours out with a murky mahogany body supporting a thin tan head of foam. The modest aroma offers up brown sugar covered cherries and prunes as well as a bit of booze at the end of the draw. The taste delivers nectar like oxidized sherry goodness as well as prunes moving into more and more booziness. To midway it begins to get into smooth sweet bourbon booze. Into the finish the bourbon and sweet dark fruity esters end the sip with a wonderful integrated dance of flavor harmony.

Ibrew2or3 shares at woodshed 2.0 Dark brown pour, little head. Some oxidation present, but works in the beer. Bourbon, vanilla, some dark fruit notes. Still a nice beer after 6 years.

Bottle again shared by Ibrew2or3 @ Woodshed 2.0! This one held up a bit better than the Niepoort barrel. Get some caramel, toffee, sherry, honey, biscuit, cracker, and a hint of bourbon. Slight vanilla and wood.

pantanap (3340) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2013
375ml bottle... Pours a dirty murky and deep caramel toffee hue and topped with a minimal bubbly ring around the edges of the glass... Aroma of musty old papery, somewhat oxidized, deeper dark fruit and toffee with a rich fruit cake presence. A little past its prime but ok... Flavors are an improvement with a deeper richer yet sweet caramel toffee and dark fruit, namely raisin and dates. Somewhat fuller bodied with a lighter level of carbonation. Flavor profile is solid although somewhat falling of.

Cloudy dark brown beer. Intense condensed milk and vanilla nose. Light airy palate, semi soft and quite dry. Sweet vanilla buttercream malt with a hint of coconut cream and a nice dash of bourbon. The sweetest bourbon barrel beer I have ever tasted. A real dessert beer! Finishes light and dry. Very moorish and very good.

Going on 5 years of age, about 2,5 years after bottling. Love the bottle shape, love the label, hate those damn huge caps. The beer pours a lovely chestnut brown, tending ruby red as it’s held up to the light. As it was poured there was half a finger of head, but it quickly faded to just form a ring of foam. The aroma is just outstanding - lots of sweetness, caramel, maple syrup, figs, prunes, muted bourbon and vanilla notes - not overpowering at all. Chocolate, tobacco, sherry, all kinds of awesome - extremely complex. The taste is also very nice. Begins with an oxidized sherry-like fruity note, aged tawny port notes, dark fruits and tobacco. Still notes of cheese and chocolate, and a very modest sourness in the back, almost like an unripe strawberry or a gooseberry. Moderate bourbon impressions, but has some hot alcohol in the end of the palate. Texture is really fat and oily, the modest but velvety carbonation makes it sorta creamy. This is impressive. The whole Little Korkny series is impressive. I’m very happy that I still have bottles of the other two BA editions to revisit.

Bottle. Pours a dark ruby red color with a small beige head. Aroma is of light bourbon, vanilla and oak, with lots of dark fruits like raisins, figs and some caramel, buttery notes and booze. The flavor follows the nose, lots of dark fruits again raisins figs, some red grapes, brown sugar, some bourbon, vanilla and oak notes and some booze. The body is medium with a syrupy mouthfeel. Overall a pretty good take on Little Korkny but I prefer the cognac.

Enjoyit (3086) - Vadum, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2011
Deep brown of color with a small beige head. An aroma of sweets, port, dried fruit, chocolate, vanilla, weak liqurice and nuts. A flavor of port, liqurice, dried fruit, raisins, oak, weak sour and alcohol.
