COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: 491 bottles of 37,5 cl made.

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 cognac fade. Aromaen af den ekstremt intense og komplekse øl er domineret af eg og frugtnoter såsom blomme og fersken. Smagen er yderst fyldig, med præg af cognac, rosin og vanille. Den lange eftersmag er vinøs og sød med eg som et tørt islæt.

Sigmund (4956) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2009
375 ml bottle, kindly shared by my beer pal Olav, who bought it at Nørrebro Bryghus. Dark reddish brown colour, low head. Distinct aroma of oak and brandy, notes of raisins. The flavour is distinctly oaky, notes of brandy and rum-raisin. Good stuff!

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2009
Murky dark amber, opaque in the center with dark brown edges. A small off-white head that settles fast. Basically no lacings. A very intense smell with heavy malty aromas, leather, toffee and abundant boozy fruit aromas (mostly cherries and grapes) and raisins. Vanilla. Prominent alcohol fumes. The smell is not perfect, far from it. But it’s very impressive, and if the alcohol would have been more restrained, it would have been really good. The taste is way better than the smell, and even more intense. It’s very sweet with fat malty flavors. Caramel. Wonderful notes of wood and vanilla. Rich vinous and boozy fruity cognac character. Notes of toffee, leather and raisins. The finish is mildly bitter and packed with hot alcohol. Notes of caramel and cognac in the end. Full body, low carbonation. Very smooth, sticky and heavy. A very good beer, rich and creamy. It’s very heavy in character and definitely a sipper - it almost drinks like a fine cognac. Serving type: bottle (Copy of old Beer Advocate review)

The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, alcohol, cognac, and berries, leading to a dry alcoholic finish. The body is thick.
