Nice oak aged aroma. Dark amber color but not much suds. Nice and smooth on the palate. This was cellared for a while and I think it helped.

thedm (4968) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 21, 2012
This $13.19 bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy with a frothy top fine to medium sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated light brown colored body and a good lacing. The vinous aroma was nut brown malt and dough. The mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mellow finish and a strongly vinous aftertaste with an alcohol burn to it. The strongly vinous flavor contained notes of old ale resinous pine and alcohol. A wonderful best in class brew.

Lukaduke (2313) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Pours a deep dark mahogany with a litttle tan film skimmed across the top. Aromas are deep oak, sweet malts a touch of earthy maple and some boozey dark fruits. On the palate its not quite as oakey but maintains a big barley syrup mouthfeel with notes of vanilla, boozy dark rum and touches of caramel burnt toffee and rotten fruit.

larsga (6260) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2012
Medium beige head. Slightly hazy deep amber body. Deep earthy toffee and chocolate aroma with vanilla fudge, sherry, and linoleum notes. Sweet-dryish earthy toffee and vanilla fudge taste with chocolatey alcohol and honey notes. Fullish body. Mild, soft mouthfeel with slight heat. Dry-sweetish roasty vanilla fudge aftertaste with chocolate, honey and linoleum notes. Really nice, but a bit too sweet and perfumy. (0.65l bottle, Fish & Beer, Copenhagen. Cellared for 1 year.)

arminjewell (6322) - lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, dark reddish brown pour with thin to no white head, aroma brought notes of deep toffee, molasses, dark raisin, some slight plastic notes, hints of oak, vanilla in there, touch of slight cocoa powder. Taste is very plasticky, touch of vanilla, slight oak, lots of dark fruits and toffee/molasses, finishing fairly sweet. Eh something is off about this, but there are enough good tastes to help a bit.

adnielsen (9417) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Bottle @ Armin’s house. Somewhat cloudy, reddish orange appearance with a small tan head. Somewhat oxidized, toffee, light vanilla, dull flavor hoppy, fairly intense aroma. Fairly boozy, cardboard, plastic, toffee, caramel, bitter floral flavor. Pretty strong.

Palme (3474) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 23, 2012
0.65l bottle courtesy of Meilby and shared with the Kristiansandsmafia. Never thought I’d get to try this, so big thanks for sharing! The pour on this one is clear dark nutty brown, actually quite lovely looking, and it has a low light sidesticking off-white head. On the aroma it’s lovely sweet and kinda oaky with lots of sticky sweet strawberries, some vanilla-oaky touches and caramel. Feels quite complex and very nice. It has a near creamy-sticky texture with a average small bubbly and quite comfortable carbonation level.The flavors are sweetish, caramely and sticky with sweet consentrated strawberries, vanilla and some rum raisins. Wish I could just pop a bottle and enjoy it over an evening because this was really nice! Again, big big thanks for sharing! 30.03.2012

phaleslu (6701) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2012
22 oz. bottle I bought in Cincinnati back in 2009. Pours a hazy plum-amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, brown sugar, oak, dark dried fruits, vanilla, and syrup. The flavor is fruitier, with brown sugar, caramel, vanilla, oak, and resin. Medium-full bodied, with a super sweet, syrupy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. I actually liked this one better than the others in the Cuvee Series.
