MoritzF (8926) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - OCT 22, 2011
(bottle, 33cl, #48/1248) Hazy, ruby brown colour with a beige and short foamy head. Caramel-malty and slightly bready aroma with a vinous-fruity, almost Sherry-like note. Sweet-bitter flavour, almost full bodied with a smooth carbonation. Hearty (cara-)malt character with notes of bread, liquorice and a well-attenuated slightly fruity and resiny hoppy touch; sweet-bitter malt-accened finish with a vinous touch and a well-masked alcohol. Very good. 12.X.11

pivnizub (9521) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 16, 2011
Bottle #48: Amber to deep amber coloured, small and stable tanned head, dry caramelly and (port-)vinous nose, a good dash of aromatic hops underneath; medium to full bodied, pretty soft, solid bitter-sweet flavour; perfectly balanced caramelly and hoppy finish, dry hoppy aftertaste. Fine brew...

HenrikSoegaard (12047) - Randers, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2011
Bottle from 2009. No head. Dark red.-amber colour. Powefull malty and fruity aroma. Rasin and plumb dominating. No fresh hops left. Light sweet powerfull bitter flavor. Vinius. Batley wine like. Long heavy bitter finish. Creamy palate. Too flat. Maybe I waited too long.

another from gene 11/1/10. batch 146/324 brewed 29,dec 2008. it pours out a thick murky coppery brown. it smells murky as well... sweaty hops, wood, caramel, dried fruit/raisins, grain and lots of alcohol. the flavor is the same only sweet without a balance. at the edge of cloying and no longer fun... 6/4/5/3

dEnk (4199) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2011
Bottle, tfs Vaiz! Aroma is huge sugary caramel goodness. Flavour is sugary malt goddness. Fruity malt, touch of spice, some liquorice. No more double IPA, but the barleywine that’s left is very nice.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2011
Maybe it has been saved too long - but it has been kept cool and dark so hopefully it still got som attitude. Red lack sealed 33 cl bottle number 117. No fizz when uncapped and when poured it shows that it is as good as flat. The appearence is brownish muddy with no head at all. The nose is good. It has lot of power and twisted alcohol notes but first of all a massive malty base topped with caramel and raisins and finaly lots of grains. The mouthfeel is af flat as the appearence - no co2 what so ever and as flat as water. Fortunately the taste is pretty good still. Again the alcohool profile is sticking out. Lots of bitterness that fades over in a caramelish desser-like feeling. Its a shame that its fkat because a nice fizzyness would have backed the taste up very nicely. The finish is long with a mild bitter sweetness.

Koelschtrinker (14114) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Durchaus herber Antrunk, der vorhandene Hopfen ist zwar erkennbar, weite Aromenbildungen fehlen aber, das Ganze ist unerwartet schwach. Dies wird spätestens mit dem Abebben der Aromen zum Ende deutlich, der Hopfen verabschiedet sich als erstes. Weich grasig, zum Ende in Teilen trocken. Der Alkohol ist hier brennend. Ein IPA, das frisch getrunken werden sollte und dann wohl auch deutlich mehr Potential hat. 12/8/9/8/12/8
