On tap at CBC 2013, Saturday evening, spices, wood and alcohol on the nose, a huge alcohol bite, woody and bitter with a roasty syrupy character and barleywine notes. Bragesnak (5394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2013
Copenhagen Beer Celebration
Amber with white head. Aroma of malt and wood. Flavour with some caramel and spices with a tangy note ComradeK (1256) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 13, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy deep copper, with a moderate off-white head, which does not last all that well but does leave good lacing. Savoury biscuit malt, spicy, fruity hops and a touch of smoke create the aroma. Spicy, peppery hops up front give way to a sweeter candied fruit flavour. Savoury nut and biscuit malt notes in the mid-palate blend with vanillin oak, with oak and smoke in the finish, which leaves a lingering warmth. This is quite a pleasant, flavoursome ale from a quality brewer.

Bottle pour deep amber color. Nose very barleywine like with loads of sweet malt, booze, and the faintest hint if smoke. Taste bracing bitter up front, then toffee, caramel, and sweet malt. Syrupy mouthfeel. Finish bitter with smoke. Very interesting beer, but didn’t love it. Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle @tasting. Pours brown, malty sweetness to the nose with some smoke there as well. Fruity on the tongue but with a big smoke flavour, you also get a big alcohol hit, you know this one is 11%. Also right at the end you get this yeasty bread flavour. Marduk (8219) - Reval, ESTONIA - JAN 28, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear ruby red color. Alcohol, malty, caramel, sweetish notes in aroma. Roast, malty, hazelnuts, mild coffee in taste. Coffee in aftertaste. It’s bit raw, but still very drinkable. Yorker (2032) - Holstebro, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2014
