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.

It’s dark, red mahogany with a small head and the aroma is vinous with notes of raisin, malt, caramel, grapes, “fat” toffee and light wood. The flavor is sweet and vinous with notes of raisin, caramel, malt, light wood and cognac. It is very, very well balanced, incredibly nice and harmonic.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2011 A Special treat from Keith! Pours an opaque orange, golden into the glass. Aroma is intense raisin, wood, intense toffee caramel malt, dates, bit of booze. From the first sniff it’s obvious that this is something very special. Mouthfeel is thick, chewy. Flavor is concentrated toffee, raisin, dates, lots of woodiness, brown sugar. So well structured and such complex maltiness that the concentration of the flavors doesn’t seem the least bit overbearing

Great beer from Nörrebro. Smoth and elegant feeling for a beer in this alcoholic region.

Miksu (4938) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - NOV 9, 2010
0.375 l bottle, thanks Timo A! Opaque reddish brown color. Thick aroma of soya sauce, cherry, raisins toffee, vanilla, oak and complex alcohol. Sweet complex toffeish and raisiny flavor with raspberry, oak, vanilla. Thick full body. Very thick condensed taste, a great sipper! The aroma is so rich that I’m fully satisfied by the aroma only.

Murky red brown color with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of sherry, cognac, red wine, cognac, caramel, dark fruits, vanilla, and alcohol. Taste of vanilla, caramel malts, nuts, wine, cognac, dark fruits, and somewhat sharp alcohol.

jrallen34 (3478) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2011
bottle... medium shiny brown, thin tan head, no lace... the aroma is all smooth cognac, smells great, accented with brown sugar... the taste is equally outstanding, has me be debating my long standing belief that the bourbon is one of the best barley wines out there, brown sugar, molasses, malt, raisins and cognac, love drinking this... must try

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle shared in London - huge thanks to Paul. Pours hazy brown with a bubbly, tan head. Great nose for an old B-wine, lots of toffee, aged fruits, light feet, old ship wood. Big sweet flavor with gooey coffee, some alcohol-soaked dried fruits, major raisins, dates and figs, some fruit cake. Full bodied with fine carbonation and chewy mouthfeel. Warm finish with lots of liquefied dark fruits,buckets of old dates and figs, toffee. Delicious. Rich. Decadent. Excellent.

Thanks to David for this in trade. Ruby brown with virtually no head. Aroma is raisins, brown sugar, caramel, cocoa. Medium-full bodied, slightly sticky mouthfeel, sweet on the palate with a fruity finish. Flavours are chocolate, raisins, fig, prunes, dates, honey. Absolutely delicious.
