KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2010
Cloudy deep amber with a beige head. Loads of hops in the aroma along with roasted malt, caramel and pine. Sweet flavor with roasted malt, caramel, overripe fruits and plenty of hops. Finished dry and bitter. The alcohol was fairly well hidden but still boozy.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2010
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours a hazy dark amber with a lacing beige head. The nose has caramel and massive American hops - and BOOZE. Medium body, again caramel, overripe fruits and hops. Massive hop burn in the finish. Not the most sophisticated beer - mainly just a booze blow out. 250810

pilsnerrogge (2503) - Finspång, SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2010
Bottle 3338 of 3600:
Deep brownish red colour. Head is large but sinks pretty fast. Sweet toffee aroma with notes of liquorice and alcohol. Sweet and sticky flavour with notes of wood and alcohol. A little bit too strong for its own good.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 16/20
Fungrim (52) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2010
Bottle. Medium sized (but surprisingly large nevertheless) foamy, light brown head. Gloriously red, clear, copper colour. Aroma is... oh, my goodness... Malty caramel, malt, resin, ripe fruits, vanilla. And banana? Average carbonation, medium, quite oily, body. Taste is lots of yummy malt, dry wooden smoke, some toffee and some caramel. Medium high, lingering bitterness. Throat warmer this is, but it is very well balanced and the high ABV is extremely well hidden. A great beer!

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
thebeertourist (4836) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2010
Bottle from Utobeer. Copper with a lively, rocky and yellowish head. Citrus hops attacking the nose, some raisin notes as well. Good citrus hop bitterness blending with toasted malt, heaps of alcohol, some dark fruit and sugar. Full-bodied and oily. Nice and complex, but too alcoholic for my taste.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
TheJester (1892) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2010
375 mL (green) bottle with a classy little label. (bottled on 16.06.10). Dark auburn with a small head. The aroma really knocks you on your ass: it’s big. Alcohol, pineapple, cough syrup, and caramel. The flavour is equally huge, with the alcohol being dominant again. There is a stronger toasty malt presence, as well as a some dark fruit and nuts. Bitter finish. Could have used some time to mellow, but a damn interesting beer.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2010
Bottle. Hazy dark amber with a low thick lasting off-white head. Rich hop accentuated aroma of resin, over-riped oranges, sweet apricots and flowers with rich and deep malty notes of caramel, honey, toasted malts and sweet licorice. Of course (at massive 18 % ABV), it’s got a huge massive body with strong notes of flowers, caramel, honey, pine mild pepper and toasted malts. Chewy yet rounded mouthfeel with a very well-hidden alcohol. Long belly-warming finish of resin, flowers, honey, caramel and toasted malts. Had sceptical thoughts about this one but now I’m praised. Really, really well done!

Theis (13437) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2010
Bottle at home - shared with Mette. Clear dark red/amber - white head. Nice hoppy. Resin. Caramel sweetness. Recidual sugar. Amber malts. Light sharpness. Soapy. Peppery. Raisins. Dried fruits. Very nice desert beer.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 17/20
scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 1, 2010
Courtesy of Steve Jones - Pratt St. Ale House Brewmaster. Deep crimson, thick creamy white head. Intense tropical fruit and pine aromas ride a sturdy backbone of grassy-mint and soft chocolate throughout. Thick musky pine and citric hop assault rounds well with a soft blackened vanilla-toffee fade. ABV warms, but hides well in the end. Full bodied, medium carbonation, bittersweet finish. A great sipper…
