Tap @CBC 2014Niall73 (2434) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 19, 2014
Dark brown color, steady beige head. Alcohol, some caramel, fruityness. Medium-bodied. Caramel sweetness, alcohol in nicely balanced way. Liquerish.
Bottle at home. Aroma is lovely - sweet dark fruit - dates, figs boozy raisins and rum, touch of grass too. Medium to full body, mild carbonation. The sweet rummy fruitiness switches gear towards boozy woody dryness in a flash. It might leave a touch dry, but its a treat. thewolf (12711) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph. Pours light hazy dark chestnut with a medium, staying, super-creamy yellowish head. Aroma has fat caramel, red wine, oak, raisins, apple, Calvados. Low carbonation, fine oily and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has fine malts, good caramel and raisins, light chocolate, red wine, a bit of port, softly vinious and warming. Nice. c0fein (660) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 12, 2014

Aroma promises good with its intensity. Deep brown look with a smooth beige foam. Good versatile mouth-filling taste. Small sourness, dryness and alcohol at mouth-feel. I like.
Bottle. Dark amber/brown with off white head. Some fusels in the aroma although not hot, petrol, rubber, plastic, some chocolate and biscuit, also floral and citrusy. Taste of resin, plastic, raisins, prunes flowers, biscuit, toffee, chemicals like rubber, caramel after taste. Slightly sweet/sticky, thin and bitter almost tangy. Has some wine like qualities and I liked it at first but ultimately it seems like a bit of a mess. There’s far too much going on and it’s a little all over the place. Too many aspects clash for me

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a murky amber with minimal head. Nose is heavy oak, vanilla, and light fruit smell. Taste is very easy drinking considering it’s 11%. Dark fruits, oak, vanilla and sweet mango. Definitely got better as it warmed up. Could do with some ageing. Stuu666 (14205) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 1, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2017 Bottle at Craig?s. Pours brown, sweet toffee and caramel, fruity, boozy, vinous.
Bottle at appellation. Pours deep orange amber, nose is citrus, caramel, oak, taste is sweet, fruity, wood. maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours dirty amber with a small khaki head. Nose is stupidly oaky with plenty of juicy tropical fruits and sweet vanilla. Mild sugar and apples. So well rounded. As it warms dark fruits come out to play. You would never guess this is 11%. Taste is very dark fruit and tropical - date, raisin, mango, peach, nectarine. Loads of stone fruits with plenty of vanilla. Superb depth and roundness in this. Lacks that killer punch but it’s made astoundingly well. Very good Rasmus40 (21474) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2014
