Veeve (312) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - OCT 22, 2006
served at NYC Brewtopia. this is a barley wine that is "meant to keep you warm in the cold." its a big, malty beer with a 9% alcohol content. tastes like grain, grapes and prunes. also, i couldn’t put my finger on the kind of meat it tasted like but ultimately decided on hotdog for whatever reason. slightly bitter finish thats very drying.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2005
[Cask at Falling Rock Tap House, Denver] An unclear dark red beer with no head. The aroma is very sweet with notes of prunes, cow berries, and overripe fruits. The flavor is sweet and very fruity especially overripe fruits. It reminds me of a strong Belgian dubbel.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2004
Cask, Falling Rock Tap House, Denver, Colorado. - Pre-Gabf Tapping Party. This was hog heaven, aged in a JW Lees Sherry firkin for 1.5 years and then infused with brettanomyces. I don’t really understand why they added brettanomyces to this beer. It seems to me that it would have been a lot better with the dark fruitiness of the malts pairing with the dry, winey notes of a sherry barrel. Much like Leviathan from Fish. I found the brettanomyces to be distracting in this beer. The hop level tamed to a very low level, especially consider the original IBU’s were around 100. Sour and tart brett notes pair well with the sherry, winey notes. Solid.
