Clear brown pour with a super small head. Caramel and toffee with oxidized malts and lots of dark fruit notes. Not massive oxidation, but enough. Full body with low carbonation and a succulent sweet finish. sfhodense (4789) - Odense NØ, DENMARK - APR 9, 2012

At HallingHansen Grand Tasting, thanks for sharing. Pours an unclear and dark brown beer with a weak beige head. The aroma is malt, fruit, dried fruit, sweetness, vanilla and wood. The flavor follows the nose with additional alcohol. The palate is sweetness and alcoholwarmth. Overall a really good beer. Christian (13670) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2012
Near black with ruby highlights, small off-white head. Malty aroma with a bit of caramel, notable oak and bourbon, and a touch of fruitiness. Sweet malty flavour with a complex oak character, and quite a bit of alcohol Dedollewaitor (16171) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2012

Thanks to Mike Dash G!!
Appearance: pours a dark brown with no head and no bubbles. wagman (14) - - NOV 23, 2011
Aroma: Dark fruit: fig, raisin date. Apricot. Not any booze.
Taste. Dark chocolate alcohol cardboard, hazelnut, coconut.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied modest carbonation.
Overall: Nothing like it was 6 years ago, obviously. I would suggest doing your "vertical" now.
Had during a 10-15 vertical on 11/20/11. Slightly cloudy, dark brown. Hardly any head at all. Sweet chocolate coffee smell. Really complex aroma. Tasks slightly sweet and very smooth. You can taste the alcohol come through almost like a bourbon. May be past its prime. But was still incredibly enjoyable. scotchzi (302) - Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2011
