fonefan (48109) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2009
Bottle 75cl.
Clear medium dark red brown color with virtually none head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, fruity - berry, apricot, wood, portwine, alcohol, overriped fruit - berry. Flavor is heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a long duration. Body is medium to full, texture is oily and sticky, carbonation is soft to flat, finish feel is light to moderate alcoholic. Nice work Menno but i think some more aged will be good for this beer. [20090306]

75 cL bottle, courtesy of Ungstrup and Menno. Pours hazy deep orange with no head. Sweet and dense caramel malty aroma and alcohol presence. Sweet and dense caramel malty flavoured initially. Thick and syrupy mouthfeel and flavour with a nice smooth sweetness and dense malty base flavour leading into the finish. Slowly increasing warmth into the finish. Lasting sweet and fruity to malty flavoured into far finish. Lovely stuff.

Entered to celebrate my 12,500th rating. Huge thanks for this beer goes to Menno, I was overwhelmed by having three bottles of this for my birthday and getting to name it - also thanks to the middle man (yespr) for bringing these beers home from Belgium.

A hazy deep red beer with no head. The aroma is quite complex with notes of alcohol, wood, Cognag, and over ripe fruits. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of alcohol combined with medium notes of over ripe fruits, wood, and Cognag. The body is powerful and the mouthfeel very smooth. Great beer, and I believe it is going to get better with age.

Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours a slightly hazy amber golden with basically no head. Sweetish and somewhat unclean caramel aroma. Very full-bodied, hardly any carbonation, very sugary caramel with a somewhat unclean and not overly pleasant rubbery edge. Hardly any bitterness. 010509

omhper (24783) - Tyres, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2009
Bottled at Monks Caf Sveavgen, Stockholm. Murky amber, more or less no head. Woody caramel aroma. Sweet and soft, totally full bodied. Spun sugar and caramel together with woody cognac. The softness lifts the beer to its full potential. Alcohol is evident, but works as a dimension adding flavour enhancer. A vinous wonderful sipper with peppery bitterness that keeps growing. As it warms dimension after dimension appears. Cheers Jens!

Hazy red-amber beer. Aged malt nose. No head, low carbonation. Semi dry palate, a little soft. Rich sweet malt, fruity. A nice low key blend of orange and cranberry and generic fruits. Very light vanilla wood, subtle brandy and provides a brief warm note. Nice liquer beer!
