Sanslöst stor doft, sött, fatigt och en massa torkad frukt. Aprikoser å russin. Fyllde munnen på ett kladdigt och storartat sätt! Fan vad jag önskar att jag hade köpt en till av den här!! davidm (2080) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Bottle from Slowbeer. Aromas of cognac, cherries, peach, grain. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and long length. Honymand (3) - - JUL 9, 2013 does not count
This ale is very well balanced even though it is 8.5% and oak-barrel aged. Smoke and vanilla are very well balanced. Bozo_skeleton (1157) - Grenoble, FRANCE - MAY 18, 2014
Robe orangée limpide, tres grosse carbo, collet moyen de grosses bulles.
Aromes très marqué sur le cherry, le bois, un régal rien qu’au nez.
Du velours en bouche, une attaque douceâtre, pour un final délicatement parfumé sur la liqueur. Manque juste un poil de rondeur. TheJestersBeer (2430) - SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2014

Bottle from the brewery. Pours shiny copper with a creamy beige head. Aroma is floral, grapey and perhaps oaky. Nice, very nice, aroma. Med body. It’s very, very smooth. There’s a definite brandy character, heat in the tummy, mild roast malt and some floral. Extremely tasty. Brilliant ale. Erasmus_ro (2945) - Alabama, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle #31681. Pours a dark amber with a medium, off-white had. Aroma is supercharged with pear, sweet pears and pear soda or candy. Caramel, light toffee and light butter. Later settles down to a load of oak, caramel and orange marmalade. Taste is quite dry with the oak dominating. Caramel is strong as well. Armagnac comes on strong on the finish along with grapes, dark fruit, dried fig and date. Light sour. Palate is medium, a bit sticky, not much carbonation. Very pleasant.

Fra flaske på Tap1 mai-13: litt for kald, men det skjuler ikke det faktum at dette er et godtøl fra øverste hylle. Kommer jeg over denne i butikk skal der handles sporenstreks! 10 cl av denne ga et nytt koordinat å navigere etter. bjakk (774) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - FEB 19, 2014
Sour, oak fruit orange, apricot in the aroma. Sour, orange raisins oak, alcohol, bitterness in the aftertaste with raisins and alcohol. Medium body high in bitterness. TET (3033) - Kaarina, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle no. 18804. A beautiful beer, dark red and slightly brown, a head is quite big and beige. The nose is rich of nuanceess and tastefull. Riped fruits, lots of perry, sweet apples, nice fructose, vanilla, also some berries and wood. Very fruitfull aroma. Taste start with lots of fruits, perry, plums, hint of alcohol and sherry that is only strenghtening the fruitness. Then dryer, some barrel. Medium+ bodied, powerfull and slow to drink, still quite fresh. Very interesting, it’s rare to find the beer that is so strong and fruitfull, at least the aroma is pure fruitcake. Tasts is not so fashinating than aroma but still very close to it. The great beer.
