(375ml bottle at Lark on the Park) cloudy medium brown-copper, fine bubbles that are sparse. Nose of rich wine, sweet marshmallow, cherry, brown sugar, dark raisin, super complex. Taste of caramel, rich wine, marshmallow, light vinous and raisin, light carbonation which is good on this beer. Excellent. Meilby (11495) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle 375ml @ Geokkjeryngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2013
Pours clear dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, chocolate, dried fruits, oak, vanilla hint of red wine and alcohol. Taste is heavy sweet and light to medium bitter with a long sweet caramel, oak and fruity finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
Bottle, 375ml corked. A rather flat one, no head, and with a more or less clear, dark brown body. Some caramel in the aroma, with hints of oak, as well as alcohol, dried fruits and some vinous hints. A faint hint of chocolate and vanilla. The flavor has a nice sweetness, with dried fruits, caramel, alcohol and some choclate and vanilla. Full body, warming and soft on the palate. Lasting finish with caramel, some vanilla and quite a lot of vinous notes. Chocolate too. A quite pleasant one, but lacks a bit. 130510 Geokkjer (7627) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours amber with a tiny off-white head. Aroma of malt, prunes, grapes and caramel. Flavor is sweet and malty with some grapes, red wine, vanilla, oak, alcohol and caramel. Medium to full body, average carbonation. NikkTwist (3225) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2013
Bottle at Eulogy in April 2013. Fantastic! Poured dark copper with no head. Great wine barrel aged notes. Has not turned. Deep and complex dark red fruits. Raisins. Dates. Nice dark caramel sweeetness but feels balanced. Heady aroma. Full body. For an aged beer with such dark fruit notes it still retains a nice bite. Again fantastic!

37,5cl Bottle, courtesy of Wim. Brown coloured beer with some very light carbonation and small white head. Sweet yeasty malty veggy to toffee elder hinted aroma. Medium to full palate. FInish is alcoholic, rather sweet with a woody older taste. Medium one. bbbeer (819) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 8, 2013
Dark rusty brown with a sickly looking small tan head. A wonderfully complex and intense aroma, of caramel and brown sugar, wood, dark fruits, and probably some other things. Full bodied. Pretty much no alcohol. Flavor is pretty sweet. Molasses, dates, just a little toastiness from the oak. My only complaint is needed a little something to balance the sweetness. Great beer.

Bottled, batch #9, enjoyed at Micro Bar, Reykjavik
Pours brown with a thin tanned head. Smells of raisins, dark fruits, nice malts, oak and yeast esters. Heavy sweet, quite oaky, very fruity with the main focus on rainsins and similar flavors, alot of dark malts and dark fruits. Medium bitter finish. A very nice brew - good oak infusion
