Denne unikke øl på hele 10% alk. blev brygget julen 2005 og har været længe undervejs. Her er den så - kraftfuld, sødlig og blomstret med en viniøs og krydret aroma af bl.a. ingefær og muskat. Vinder ved lagring.

Bottle 50 cl. Small bubbly light white head that mostly diminished. Spare display of lacework. Cloudy golden color. Aroma of mild bread, caramel, alcohol, hint of fruit and a distance of spice in there as well. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation and alcoholic texture. Moderated sweet flavor with some bitterness. Alcoholic malty finish.

[bottle #1262]
Pours beautyful amber with a big frothy/creamy offwhite head. Nice aroma of spices - cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger... these spices are also apparent in the flavour, with cinnamon being the strongest. The mouthfeel is rich, creamy - prickles a bit on the tongue - it is vinious, but hides very well the 10% - has a hint of hops in the end. A very nice beer, with a christmas feel to it.

Bottle, bought @ the brewery.

[bottle #1262]
Pours coppery golden with a big, frothy/bubbly yellowish head. Fair amount of bubbles in the liquid. Complex aroma, lots of liquorice, some pepper, light cinnamon, quite a lot of nutmeg. Fine mouthfeel with medium mouthfeel. Some plummy malts as well. Impressive, powerful flavour. Light viniousness, some plums, grapes and oranges. Lots of ginger in the flavour and nutmeg has a clear place in the beer. Very sticky finish, where the spices play around in my mouth. Impressive, even though it is far too spiced for its own good.

Skinnyviking (8958) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2007
Bottle. Very high and good looking off-white creamy lasting head. Hazy orange body. Powerful spicy and promising fruity barley malt aroma. Bitter sweet and fruity fcoriander flavor with alcohol sneeking up from behind. The alcohol percentage well balanced with the sweetness of the beer. Low carbonation and long sweet aftertaste.

yespr (40865) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2007
CBF07 sample from bottle. Pours amber golden. Aroma is sweet malty. Mouthfeel is fullbodied and carbonated. Flavour is sweet caramel and raisin. Finish reveals some alcohol and sweetness lingering long into the finish. I had to sample this from the stand NEXT to Skovlyst af CBF07, Skovlyst didn’t bring the bottle, and the stand next to them was not allowed to pour any Skovlyst beer, but a bit of talking convinced the nice people at All-Drinks/Øltorvet to give me a sample anyway, cheers!
