This is a collaborative beer made by Carlsberg Falkenberg and Brooklyn Brewery.

Pour is dark brown with a tight tan head. A hint of bourbon but extremely faint, light note of milk chocolate, a touch oxidized, and a good bit of malt berry sweetness. Taste pretty much follows the nose. Faint note of bourbon and some slightly rich malt, oxidation mid palate and a good bit of malty sweetness but not really sugary. Silky smooth body, moderate carbonation. Fairly bright flavors, slightly oxidized, not bad now, probably a bit past it's prime and could have been a really nice beer before.

Mycket trevliga vaniljtoner. Mjuk lång rätt maltig smak. Provade den första gången i september 2011 och den var bra redan då men har mognat fint! Köpte ett hundratal flaskor så jag hoppas verkligen att den positiva utvecklingen fortsätter! Carlsberg kan om de satsar!
