(50 cl bottle from Holte Vinlager Roskilde; BBD: August 2014) Pours dark brown with little, tan head that diminishes quickly leaving only lace. Aroma is oxydised and boozy: Thin molasses and no hops. Perhaps a hint of bourbon but not for long. Flat carbonation, medium body, watery texture and a boozy finish. Taste is aromalike - sweet, boozy and oxydised. Not a harmonious marriage between beer and cognac and not terribly pleasant either. ABV is far too high for what it is. saxo (18208) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2012

There are notes of raisins and plums, liqourice and molasses. Medium carbonation, fine fat and fairly dry mouthfeel. Flavour is mildly sweet, lots of caramel, again some sharpish herbal liqourice, light plums, mild hoppiness. Warming, slightly sharpish viniousness, some cognac booziness.
