Bottle aged 10 months. The aroma has caramel, yeast, raisins, spices, candy, pine, and citrus. The appearance is red brown with a small head and very little carbonation. The flavor is very malty and sweet with all the elements from the aroma except it tastes a little like vinegar (probably from aging). The palate is like syrup. Aging this beer was a mistake but the aroma is nice. skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 8, 2006

Honey - I’m home! This dark rad pour gives off honey in every way. I smells of it, tastes of it, drinks and pours thick. The alcohol was well contained with the overwhelming body of this beer. The downside is that the cherries were lost, and the spices only came up in some belching afterwads. Kevin (2217) - Montana, USA - AUG 26, 2006
bottle from kramer. it’s the last night i have to watch my brother’s kids. they are finally in bed. i need a drink.nice light maroon body that has a vocal carbonation level to the gray yellow head. syrup in the nose with honey, and grape jelly. oh yeah this is what i need. fruity alcohol flavor with a light yeast note that is bready and buttered. just the right amount of bite to it. trying to put a finger on the flavors here, light cherry, watered down molasses or honey, some pear notes too. a bit of lingering lime with the yeasty biscuit and orange taste.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2006 I was expecting a fruity, cherry flavor, but didn’t notice that. Mild spice, banana and slightly sweet. ABV was not detected at all for such a high percentage.
Re-rate: A friend had a growler overnighted, and man this is even better from the tap. Deep spice, chocolate and overripe fruit tones. Again, super smooth, for such a high alcohol content. Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2006

A hazy orange beer with an orange head. The aroma is sweet hoppy with notes of peaches and some notes of dust. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of fruit, some of it a bit over ripe, as well as light notes of alcohol, but only light especially compared to the 11% ABV.

Bottle, from trade with Nejhleader. Ok nose, sweet. Hint of spice, kind of clovey. cherry vanilla, and a yeastiness that faded as it warmed. Clean brownish orange color, good head that faded quickly to a ring then to nothing. No lacing. Sweet flavor, like aroma. Little almond & nutmeg too. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, litely spiced bitter finish. Didn’t enjiy it that much. Seemed kind of brachish. Didn’t think flavors mixed well, only reason I got big head was because I poured it without tipping glass as I poured. Oh well. Thanks Nejhleader. Emil (6064) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2006
