COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dangerously drinkable garnet beauty is a hop lover’s delight. The intense dry-hop nose and the alcohol content are perfectly balanced for a caramel candy-like malt finish. This is a serious beer for serious beer afficionados and it only gets better with age. Cellarable for 3 years.

yespr (30902) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2008
22 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy to murky orange with a lacing orange head. Dry woody and liqourice like hops aroma, solid. Flavour is subdued sweet at first and followed by a dry woody and liqourice pinehops flavour. Somewhat too brutal yet not without a certain inviting tastyness to it. Ends dry and bitter, lingering liqourice and wooden notes. Lacks some refinement - somewhat too brutal.

Ungstrup (29217) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 6, 2005
An amber beer with a small light brown head. The aroma is grassy and hoppy. The flavor is very hoppy combined with notes of caramel. Nice Barley Wine with the alcohol really well hidden.

(Bottle 65 cl) Beautiful, clear mahogany with a creamy, off-white head of somewhat rough structure. Incredibly flowery hop aroma. Loads of sweet, filling caramel malt and some fat, oily hops. Decent body with a pronounced hoppy finish. 181105

anders37 (16539) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2005
Reddish-brown in colour. Small white head. Very hoppy aroma and hints of malt in the background. Flavor of hops, more hops that i am used to in barleywine. But the hops is well balanced with the malt. Nice warming bitter-sweet finish.

Clear dark red - amber beer. Decent off white head. Light, soft and semi dry palate. Toffee caramel malt - well salted! The hops kick in towards the end - a little spicy bitter orange. Tongue tingling finish. Not bad - just a little rough edged.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2003
Cloudy amber color. Strong and absolutely peculiar aroma: oranges, figues, flowers (violets…), mango. Sweet in the front, fruity (oranges, mango, plums, muscadel…), getting bitter and bitter. No need to talk about malt/caramel and hops…. Mellower than other heavily hopped North American brews.
