UPDATED: MAR 15, 2017 "this is close to nailing the style right on the head. wonderful complex malty sweet aroma. flavor and feel are very nice, but not quite up to par with the smell due to the alcohol presence. roasted malt, plum sweetness. good brew."

On tap at Founders while in town for RBSG. Pours a clear ruby orange with a thin white head. Soft alcohol on the nose, sweet fruit. Medium bodied, caramel and booze. Long slow bitterness on the finish. While not bad at all, I was surprised how I got more alcohol in here than in the barrel aged treatment I had earlier, which had a higher ABV. madsberg (11770) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2007
Bottled. Amber coloured. Unclear. Dense light brown head. Pine, sweetness, vanilla and light fruits in the aroma. Quite complex and balanced. Flavour as well is on the better side. Loads of vanilla (bourbon barrels?), soap, fruits and flowers. This must be the 2006 edition. The barral notes are very dominant but yet nicely integrated in the beer. Medium to full bodied. Quite dry. Light bitter sweetish end, where the barrel notes again plays a major role. Nice alcoholwarmth on the lips. deyholla (11605) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 1, 2009
On tap at MBG Summer Festival. Poured a reddish hazy amber with a light brown head. Aroma was sweet throughout with barley notes. Began with sweet malts but dark notes as well as alcohol grew throughout. Quite thick on the tongue, rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2010

Pours slightly hazy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, raison, plums, dried fruits, wood and vanilla. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long very smooth, caramel, vanilla and dried fruity finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2007 Bottle 2006... Mostly clear, burnt orange ale with a small , creamy, khaki head. Malty, woodsy nose with lots of bourbon. Boozy, bitter flavor. Malt sweetness followed by hop and alcohol bitterness. Full-bodied and oily with faint carbonation. Finishes grassy and woodsy. Thanks go out to growler for sharing the bottle. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Bottle. Glorious orangish pour. Very small head. Aroma is very interesting. I got some fruit notes, syrup and good malt. Flavor is very unique with some spices, fruit, sweetness and yeast. Damn good. I would like to be able to drink this on a regular basis.
