COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
En usædvanlig velsmagende og fyldig øl på 8,5 %. Lageret på et dække egetræsspåner, med gærens tydelige afgivelse af blommearoma, og en rundhåndet brug af special-malte og klassisk engelsk humle giver Alter Ego en ganske særlig og frydefuld oplevelse af et glas øl.

yespr (30902) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2007
From tap at the brewpub, thanks to Grovlam. Pours deep amber with a brown tone and a lacing head. Dry and slight woody, minor acidic and slight spiced. Flavour holds a nice soft caraml base with some body lasting into the finish. Finish holds a bit of bitterness and a minor spice note. Nice bock but not a barley wine.

Ungstrup (29217) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2007
Draft. A hazy deep red beer wtih a lazing tan head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of berries and a hint of butter. The flavor is sweet malty wtih notes of berries and fruit as well as a light note of spices, leading to a fruity finish. OK, but nothing special.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2008 (On tap) Lightly hazy reddish brown with a fine and creamy - almost nitroish -beige head leaving a dense and pretty lacework. Some surprising buttery notes appear in the initial aroma, but that unwanted tang seems to evaporate and leave room for some fat aroma hoppiness. Quite a solid body, some nutty accents and a lightly burned edge that appear late. A little raw and unrefined bitterness. Not the world’s most subtle Barley Wine. 081107

joergen (20649) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2007
Draught at the brewpub. Hazy orange brown coloured with an off white head. Fruity aroma of spices and yeast. Flavour of fruits, dried fruits, yeast, hops and liquorice. Yeasty and hoppy finish.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2007
Draught at the brewpub
Beautiful red-amber color, thin creamy head. Light aroma, with some esthers and candy like; not so good, but characterized by the house yeast; the good side is that at the end it smells a bit like a bag of hops. Good body strength, with a quite good caramel flavor, getting sweeter, and a balancing bitterness; there is also a hint of spices; creamy, almost buttery. Nothing special, but a consistent brew.

thewolf (11150) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2007
Tap @ the Brewpub. Pours a deep red with a small off white film head. Aroma has strawberries, caramel, oak and prunes. Rather low carbonation, making the beer quite nice and oily. Flavour is great, vinious, some strawberries, sweet caramel and slight smokyness in the aftertaste. Very well rounded and very good Barley Wine.

Draught. Pours a pale reddish-amber colour. Sweet, fruity, oaky bit spiced aroma. Siruppy sticky mouthfeel. The flavour is sweet with oak, dark fruits, some spices (cardamom) and soft roasted malts. The finish has a touch of smoke with sweet oak.

Skinnyviking (6932) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2007
Draught. Small and quickly disappearing off-white head. Hazy orange body. Floral aroma with notes of caramel and raisins. More hoppy than expected but the bitterness is definately bareable. Alcohol percentage well hidden by the bitterness. Low carbonation, long aftertaste.
