jesperhammer (3544) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2012
16-JUN-2012, draft @Un Mare di Birra. Hazy mahogany with almost no head. Alcoholic nose with caramel, brown sugar, bread, and herbs. Extremely tasteful, extremely alcoholic and sweet.Too alcoholic. More like 40% than 6,7%. Sticky sweet, cloying. Like a barley wine gone Belgian. Too much.

jbeatty (1210) - New York, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Bottle, 06/02/2012. Pours ruby amber color, minimal spotty beige head, syrupy legs of alcohol. Aroma definitely very malty, sweet, tripel-like fruitiness- apples, pears- dark caramel and spiciness that blends in with hot boozy finish. Taste is equally intense- apples, pears, plum identifiable in the myriad fruit notes, along with sweet toffee syrup bread maltiness, and serious alcoholic heat. Palate is ultra-thick, syrupy, liqueur like, mild carbonation. Probably a bit over the top, but lovely in small doses- if this really does mellow out down the line, will be much nicer.

ClubGonzo (4752) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2012
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Clear nougat brown/golden body, medium off-white head. Nose is intense syrupy candy sugars, booze, deep malty tones and hints of wood. Smooth, and the alcohol is well covered in other aromas. Taste is heavy sweet raisins, nougat, syrup, nuts, dark fruits and hints of wood and alcohol. Very nice and incredibly smooth for such a gargantuan ABV. A unique beer.

gEUS (1503) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 22, 2012
tap at cbc - pours amber with medium yellowish beige head. Aroma of peach, caramel, orange peel, honey, some yeast. The body is full and rich, sweet, some bitterness and some salty finish as well - no obvious alcohol warmth noticeable (poured very chilled). A clear taste of orange peel and chocolate in the finish. Nice beer.
