Ungstrup (33787) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 17, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 An amber beer with a disappearing off-white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of alcohol and oranges. The flavor is sweet with lots of alcohol that burns the tongue, but also notes of wood and caramel. Too simple for my liking.

Vintage 2001
Amber color; creamy head. The aroma is not very rich, showing some alcohol, light malt. Malty taste, some caramel and sugars but too much alcoholic, not enough rich nor complex. Drinkable, nothing more…

harrisoni (16846) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2006
On tap at Bridgeport, Portland. Deep chestnut with beige thin head. Perfumed hop aroma on top of a strong alcohol, gorgeously fruity barley wine. Beautifully perfumed aroma, then this lovely fruity malt base (red fruits), strawberry and then a great dose of hops. Syrupy alcohol Some alcohol too. I had this and the Rogue Old Crustacean on same evening and difficult to split them.

Koelschtrinker (16311) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 9, 2011
Herb-malziger Antrunk mit spürbarem Alkohol. Etwas muffiger Mittelteil, weiterhin Alkohol, diesmal aber weicher. Das Malz bleibt hinter seinen Möglichkeiten zurück und wirkt nun zuckrig. Dann wieder ausgewogener, leichter Hopfen, trocken. Erdiger und süß-malziger Ausklang. 9/11/11/12/7/11
