yespr (40836) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2008
25 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow to orange with a slowly collapsing off-white head. Dense malty aroma towards fruity. Flavour is mild yeasty which I assume provide the almost Belgian fruit esters to an alcohol dense and quite malt based beer. Solid warmth in the finish from the alcohol.

Ungstrup (34666) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2005
A copper colored beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is strong with notes of alcohol, caramel, toffee, and malt. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of caramel and toffee, as well as lots of alcohol, that gives a lot of warmth in the mouth and throat, the end is dry and sticky.

Bottled. Amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is alcohol, malts, caramel and some slightfruitys also. Flavour is really caramel malty with a stinging alcohol coming through in a warming way. Also quite much toffee and slight notes of grass.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) 15% ABV version. Fully golden with a dense and pretty head. Naturally quite alcoholic - but not really any worse than a European strong lager - with a high degree of sweetness . Has a spirituous almost sherry-like edge. To be enjoyed in very small quantities. 191201

omhper (23724) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2002
Red/orange. Extremely sweet, which hides the enormous alcohol content well, but also makes it taste awful. Way, way too sweet.

A 6 year old bottle from Kulminator. Cloudy brown beer, little white head. Initially has an oxidised nose but it quickly dissipates. Light dry palate. Sweet malt with traces of brandy and port wine. A little caramel in the finish. Long aging suits this beer.

amber coloured with hoppy nose, the alchohol strength is clawing and fair kicks

fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 10, 2002
[13% version] Golden colour, poor head. Sweet aroma, honeyish, a little malty, alcohol, bitter oranges. Pretty sweet, strong body, too much alcohol; just balanced by some bitterness.
Not the worst of the strong lagers, but far from being a good beer (well, actually it’s a top fermentation one, but it doesn’t look like).
