With the beer festival coming up next week and with the rumour of more special releases from Nørrebro I thought it was about time to wrestle this cognac age bastard. Bought at Ølbutikken, Copenhagen in these neat little 37,5 cl bottles. The pour is muddy brown with an almost non existing head - its pretty much gone after a little while. The nose is huge but so neat. You sense the alcohol but in a very tempered way. Dried raisins and vanilla with wooden notes. Caramel and bitter hazel nuts and wet topsoil. The taste is very intense with an extreme thick and oily palate... almost over the top. This bastard could easely battle a good port or other desert wine as served for the cheese or chocolate fondan. The taste is heavy with a vinoes and alcohol strong attitude. You really sense the stuff from the cognac barrels... and I kind of like the stuff it adds to the beer much more than bourbon barrels - it adds to the picture without overtaking it. The finish is long but low key compared to the taste. Its sweet with a alcohol impact that turns your lipps a bit numb. Bragesnak (5394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 19, 2010

Bottle shared with Craig, cheers to Craig and also to Jan and Charlotte who gave this to Craig I understand, Had this at my gaff, on third night of tasting 10-04-10 dark brown with a little rim of white bubbles. Sweet initially but then some lovely fruitiness floods through, soft in the mouth the barrel ageing is lovely. There are grapes, then dried fruit, sultana’s, raisin’s it’s a little like Christmas cake without the spice, marzipan and icing so actually not like a Christmas cake at all more like a fruit cake, whatever its like I like it, a lot.

2007 bottle via daknole on 1/25/2010.
orange brown with no discernable head though it does leave spots of foam behind when swirled.
the nose is insanely fruity... brown sugar, grapes, dates, vanilla and spicy booze.
the flavor is the same... very grape-y with defined cognac spice and a ton of sweetness. normally, it would be too much but this is a nice medium to full bodied digestif... too bad dak threw this in the middle!
