Bottle. A very interesting beer, that I simply can´t really find out what to say about. Dark brown with nearly no head, looks a little flat. Aroma sweet licorice and burned sugar, reminds me a lot of medicin for sore throat. Taste sweet licorice, burned sugar and thick as oil. I can´t understand if the ABV is right at 16%, it´s dangerously easy to drink. My main concern is, if I really do like it, maybe it should score a lot higher on overall impression. But again Beer Here are worth to look out for, Christian Andersen is making some very very interesting beers. OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 11, 2009

Øldage 2009. Sinfully black. No head. Extremely aromatic; Hard roasted dark malts, alcohol, rum&raisin and English fruitcake. Thick and chewy malt body. Sourish-sweet and roasty. Notes of dark dried fruits with an acidulous twist. Fat body, barely any carbonation. Juicy texture. Loads of dark malts and warming alcohol in the ending. As powerful as it get, and also kind of balanced in its extremness.
Historical story telling - I love it. And when it is putted together with a beer the pictures tends to be perfect. The story is delivered in and on this tiny bottle (25cl) You get the story on the label, and the cap on the bottle is rusty as hell - leaving the impression that it actually could be as old as the beer it wants to lean towards - from the 16. century. Storytelling is also what makes alot of beers go round, and makes them interesting - thats cool and I like it. In this case you can have your doubts weather or not the egg or the hen came first. Is this the story of a beer made for exactly this expression or is it the story of a project/brew turning bad and then brillantly wrapped in a story of old brew traditions - I dont know. The pour is moisty brown with no head at all. The nose is sweet sweet, with notes of alcohol, som spices and a little oxidice. The taste is huge and i taste laquirice (Piratos), tobacco, soya and coffee...actually it reminds me of the danish bitter "Nordsøolie" The palate is thick but waterish and its completely flat with, as it is said on the lable, totally free of carbonation. Its strong alcoholwise.. you need someone to shar with.
What ever the story with this beer is, it is fantastic to get the chance to challenge your taste buds with this intersting and alternative beer. Beer Here keeps challeging and thats what suddenly bring fantasitc beers on the shelves..This one is good - but maybe not for me...yet skortila (5850) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2009
Bottle @ København Ølfestival 2009. Aroma is winey with dark, roasted malts, coffee. Black coloured beer with not much head. The taste is sweet, has coffee roasted malts, chocolate. Bitter, roasty finish with some alcohol. For a 16% beer the alcohol is actually well hidden. This is a good beer. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2009
Bottle 25 cl. Pours completely pitch black with no head - pure motor oil. Distinctly burned aroma of black malts and massive alcohol. Quite full-bodied, completely flat, wood and sherry notes, loads of burned malts with a heavily alcoholic finish. Pretty damned extreme! 160509
