Ungstrup (36422) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2010
Bottled. A hazy dark brown beer with a lazing tan head. The aroma has notes of caramel, bread, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, wood, and alcohol, leading to a dry woody finish, where the alcohol burns the tongue.

mcberko (16597) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 29, 2013
22 oz. bottle, sent from BrewtopiaofPJ (thanks a lot, Mark), pours a deep dark mahogany / dark brown with a fairly large foamy beige head. Aroma of red wine barrels, alcohol and dark fruits - very boozy, vinous and complex. Flavour brings out loads of raisins, red wine, caramel and booze. Very raisin-y, with quite a bit of sweet caramel and moderate red wine notes. The near-15% is incredibly well-concealed. It is a big cloyingly sweet, but very well-rounded nevertheless. Drinkable in small doses. Good stuff, but highly overrated.

brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 11, 2012

The flavor is quite nice. Lots of chocolate and dark fruit notes. A really nice Cabernet flavor. Solid stuff. Medium and medium.
