Koelschtrinker (21371) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 2, 2011
Süß-malziger Antrunk, der ausgewogener als bei der Series 1 ist. Dennoch zu süß, auch hier sind die Holznoten stark. Dunkelmalziger aber sehr süßer Antrunk, wenig Hopfen, der Alkohol ist erkennbar. Etwas schokoladig. 8/11/11/12/8/11

Amber color, of a very dark shade; medium-sized compact head. It has a very nice aroma, of malt toffee and vanilla oak, more wood; mild. Soft and round body; there is a very good caramel and toffee flavor, with harmonious vanilla and oak, making it a bit buttery. Good bitterness, but not covering the malt profile. Excellent.

saxo (19357) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2011
Bottle from Voldby. Small head with short duration. Color is reddish amber. Aroma and taste are oak, tar, caramel, hops, syrop and malt.

harrisoni (19194) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
Bottle at post Borefts BF 09 tasting. Red amber, thin beige head. Sweet amber malt in aroma, not sure I like the oak in it. Too woody for me. bit too oaky, sweet, some hop on end.

mcberko (18600) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 13, 2010
On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe, pours dark hazy orange with a beige head. Aroma of candied sugar and caramel malts. Flavour is very sweet, with candied sugar, burnt caramel, with a little hop bite at the end - cloyingly sweet, but it’s well-made still.

chrisv10 (18240) - DENMARK - JAN 21, 2011
Bottle. Dark copper with small beige head. Flavour is malt, caramel, dark fruit, oak and vanilla.

yngwie (17185) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2011
Bottle, 22oz. An unclear, dark amber beer with a finger-thick, off-white to beige head. Caramel and sugary dried fruits on the nose, maybe not sounding too good, which it is, but it is a bit boring. The flavor has a meaty intro, with caramel, raisins and some alcohol following. Warming and full-bodied on the palate, with a lasting dried fruits finish. A quite nice one, and though it might seem from my rating that I enjoyed aroma and flavor equally, I didn’t. The aroma is sort of boring or one dimensional, the flavor is more complex and in fact really good. Anyway, a nice beer. 110204

jtclockwork (17101) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Bottle. Pours muddy dark brown with tan head. Nose/taste of nougat, creme brulee, oak, vanilla, caramel and burnt brown sugar. Sweet. Medium body.

Dedollewaitor (16359) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2009
Bottle @ HJ Hansen, Odense. Pours hazy golden with a creamy white head and lacings. Nose and taste is heavy oaky. Very sweet with hints of caramel. Full bodied. Quite one dimensional

bhensonb (15630) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 19, 2011
Bomber from Oak Tree. Pours hazy dark ruddy amber with no real head. Aromas of brown sugar, dark fruit, a little hop, and arguably vanilla and oak. Med plus body. It starts sweet, moves towards dark fruit, shifts to oaky astringency. The finish is fairly dry and oaky, though the sugar sort of hangs around. Pretty good stuff.
