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.
