Jens Eiken, Head Brewer at Jacobsen feels that though the manufacturing of this brand of beer started as an ambition to create something new, but the chemical processes during ageing brought out a different taste of the beer which was awesome.

You can get this brand of beer in 3 of the prime restaurants of Copenhagen, Denmark. This beer is  a wine with 10.5% ABV Barley.

The grists comprise of Maris Otter Imperial malt, Maris Otter pale ale malt, and caramel malt. There is addition of Invert sugar within the four hours wort boiling. At 25°C this beer is fermented including English ale yeast.
