12 oz Bottle. Not sure how long this has been sitting in the fridge at my local store, but I do know I have seen it there as long as I can remember. Pours clear orange with a nice tan head. Nice even carbonation. Aroma is clove and banana, mixed with sweet malt and vanilla, and yes, alcohol. Powerful sweet flavor, with banana and vanilla, maybe some clove as well. Thick palate. Like a giant weizenbock. Think a huge Aventinus. Fun brew! Mads Langtved (2243) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2004
It is prettty alcoholic. Very hoppy end, but still refreshing. Pretty fruity as well. Lubiere (14133) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2004
Hazy hazy brown ale. Very sweet fruity aroma, wih sweet red delicious apple and alcohol warmth. Sweet and spicey taste with the hops comming nicely in the end. Almost in between a barley wine (grape notes) and a belgian triple/quad (spices). Nice grappa overtones. Well balanced. Ungstrup (38246) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2004
A dark red beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with notes of alcohol, peaches, and oil. The flavor is sweet spicy and with loads of hops as well as alcohol to give it a nice body. A nice beer.

Red and orange colour. Strongly alcoholic and vinous. Dry flavour and finish. Tastes like a barley wine. Quite strong hoppy notes. Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2004
Reddish brown coloured. Fruity aroma. Very sweet flavour. Quite yeasty. Slightly unbalanced and alcoholic. OldGrowth (3474) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - JUN 27, 2004
Bottle, good nose, rum, sour apple, cherry little bubble gum. Murky brownish orange, little to no head. Sweet and sour flavors. carmel, apple, prune. Mediumed body with a warming punch. Smooth and oily. Leaves kinda fruity dry. Pretty good, though slow drinking, Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 22, 2004
Nice amber color with a slight head which leaves good lacing. However- the head fades fairly quickly and leaves a slight film of a head. Slightly murky and cloudy. Smell is of malt and of belgian candi sugar. Flavor is balanced and not too imposing. Some caramel, some sugar, and only a slight fruitiness as it warms. Mouthfeel is a bit light for such a strong beer, yet the alcohol isextremely well hidden. Thier blithering idiot has more of an alcohol bite than this. Very well done, but would have liked more body like three philosophers. jercraigs (10731) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2004
Dark amber colour with a moderate off white head. Sweetly alcoholic aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and a dark fruitiness. Flavour is exquisitely malty as it rolls gloriously over the tongue with notes of what I would guess to be candi sugar or something similar. Not superbly complex but no less delicious for it. I found the alcohol to be well hidden, though it did start to poke out more in the finish as it warmed up a bit. Bought this at Premier Gourmet back in January so it as least six months old. Damn, I wish I had bought more.
