brnandersen (4065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2013
Sample from tap, CBC 2013. Pitch black with a thin, fading tan head. Roasted aroma with rich, roasted and caramel malts, chocolate, coffee, oak, vanilla, alcohol and a hint of tart apples. Taste is heavy sweet. Full body, thick feel, soft carbonation. Finishes slightly bitter with rich, roasted, caramel malts, a tart apple note, which I guess is the calvodos barrel. Excellent and complex.

4.2
haukur (2073) - Kópavogur, ICELAND - MAY 6, 2013
Obvious Calvados in the aroma, compared to the original this one is quite over the top on the sweetness and the calvados, loads of calva notes that are simply overpowering the beer when it first hits the tongue but then is goes out in a long roasted but sweet finish. Dark and complex but I prefer the original

4.2
Tinco (621) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2013
(Short review due to the massive amounts of beer I drank during the CBC13.) Not as good as the regular 06 but still an impressing beer. Very well done!

3.7
kermis (14478) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2013
Tap at CBC 2013. Pours dark brown with almost no head. Aroma of calvados, molasses, dark fruit, caramel. Flavor is very heavy sweet as with the non-BA version, a bit too much. Full bodied with soft carbonation.
