(Draught at Ölbaren, Copenhagen, 17 June 2010) Dark brown colour, almost black, with creamy beige head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of dried fruit, raisins, prunes and dark bread. Malty, fruity taste with dark bread, roasted malt, raisins, prunes, dried fruit, brown sugar and a spicy , herbal bitterness in the finish. Full body, smooth and rounded moutfeel. Fairly sweet with a whiff of warming alcohol. Rather heavy beer in excelllent balance, which makes it very drinkable. Lovely beer! Bragesnak (5394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2010

Brown with beige head. Aroma complex of malt, spices and fruit. Flavor with caramel, esters and hops. Papsoe (25062) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2010
On tap. Surprisingly close to black with a warm reddish hue and a creamy beige head leaving laces. The nose has plenty of fat prunes and other dried fruits, brown sugar and friendly phenols. Very full-bodied with lovely dried fruit notes and also some licorice. The yeastiness is rather downplayed but lots of friendly phenols and a warming alcohol. Has a vague late tartness. My kinda beer! 180910 sfhodense (4788) - Odense NØ, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2010

In short: A super sweet 15% burgundy fruity beer. Relatively easy to drink monster, excellent for what it issuurjuust (3569) - ESTONIA - OCT 24, 2015
How: Bottle 50cl, consumed relatively fresh, almost 4 years before expiration date
The look: Cloudy dark burgundy body topped by a small beige head
In long: Uber-rich toffee and dark fruits nose, this beer smells like a million calories. Also present in the aroma were some less pleasant paper notes. Taste is caramel, toffee, dried dark color fruits, figs, bubblegum. There is also a liquorice flavor but not like typical beer liquorice flavor, actually the liquorice flavor was like a liquorice alcohol such as Sambucca or something like that. What’s surprising about this beer is that is doesn’t taste as sweet as expected. It’s still sweet but there’s something about the tobacco-ish hops and paper off-flavor that seem to suck away the sweetness. Anyway I thought it was actually quite easy to drink for a 15% monster of a beer. Certainly not a great Abt (this is far from a classic abbey style Abt) but as a big fruity sipper I thought this was excellent. I’m usually not a fan a big monster beer but I can sometimes stray away and indulge in such a beer, I’m sure that even the cute Tony the Tiger occasionally puts the Frosted Flakes aside and rips apart a gazelle for dinner.

Keg from the Black Heart in Camden. Alcohol surprisingly well hidden for the ABV, very smooth, coffee, chocolate, vanilla and caramel all coming through. Satisfying beer. DuffMan (10456) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 10, 2015
