2008 vintage pours deep reddish hues. No head. Loads of dark fruits on the nose. Plums and raisins. Some peach. Tastebuds very sweet. Very fruity. Intense but booze is well balanced. Candied sugar. It's good!

Kaatuu lasiin tummanrubiininpunaisena ja todella niukalla vaahdolla, hiivojen kanssa punaruskea. Haju on alkoholin polttama, rusinainen, kuivattua hedelmää, ruohoisuutta, maltaisuutta, hieman suklaata ja persikkaa/aprikoosia tuntuu myös. Maku on aniksinen, kuivatun hedelmäinen, alkoholin polttama, lievän tuhkainen, rusinainen, suklainen ja lakritsinen, ainakin. Suututuntuma on täyteläinen, alkoholinen ja katkerahko. Olut suorastaan hyökkää suuhun. Kokonaisuutena hieman liian alkoholinen, mutta maultaan monipuolinen ja sitä särmää on kyllä kunnolla. Tykkään.

Had this beer at Nørrebro Bryghus In Copenhagen. The one I had was a 2008 vintage. It pours dark and hazy. The aromas are sweet and strong, with almost port like notes. The taste is complex... VERY complex! This is more something you would share like a fine wine. It goes extremely well with dessert. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kevinsenn (1301) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle traded from paulhegedus. Very cloudy brown, with lacing, and little floaty bits. Aroma of marshmallow and raisins. Sweet marshmallow and raisin flavour as well. Only slight hint of alcohol in the taste. I could do with a little more bitterness, but it is very good as is. Actually the more I drink it, the more the sweetness becomes an issue.

toffsbury (115) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle shared by kevinsenn. Aroma not dissimilar to 4th Dementia. Toasted marshmallow, raisin, and wood. Possible hint of vanilla. Pours a cloudy, ugly brown with no head. Flavour is gorgeous. 4th Dementia and Dragon’s Milk, minus the blue cheese. Caramel, marshmallow, and whiskey... Sweet, but not overly sweet. This is absolutely lovely! Not worth $20, but possibly $10 or $15. Even the flavour that comes out of my burp is happy and good. I love this stuff. Somebody get me a clone recipe. Later adjustment: sweetness gets a bit overwhelming after a while. I keep wanting to adjust my score as I drink it... The sweetness is just too much, even the 250 mL.

33 cl. bottle @ home. (2010) pours a dark brown hazy colour, no head. The aroma is very complex; dark fruits, nuttiness, plum and cherries, chocolate and a hint of toffee. the taste is very complex aswell, but mainly dominated by raisin and chocolate. slightly alcoholic, but not unpleasent. almost sherry like

Ingevara (827) - SWEDEN - OCT 30, 2012
Small head. Dark brown, christmassy smell. A flavor that reminds me very much of julmust, but with an apparent alcohol content. Not very bitter, but still rich in aroma. Goes well with fatty food or on its own, but a bit too strong to imbibe a lot of.
