Ungstrup (31462) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2004
A hazy amber beer with no head. The aroma is of alcohol and honey, like a mead, with hints of roasted malt. The flavor is also dominated by alcohol and with notes of prunes, leading to a dry finish. The alcohol warms Your body, but burns Your throat on the way.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of acertain. Slightly hazy amber golden with a small, off-white head. Fat aroma of caramel, overripe fruit and alcohol. A bit low in carbonation. Very full-bodied, extremely sweet caramel and flavours of overripe fruit. Pretty much no bitterness. Not bad as such but simply way too much and almost cloyingly sweet. This could pass for a desert wine. 191206

omhper (21886) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2006
Bottled.Thick copper red appearance. Raisiny port aroma. Extrenely sweet and malty with concentrated and complex flavours such as orange, muscat and liqueur. Somewhat sticky finish. Despite it’s sweetness I very much enjoy it, thanks to the sheer amount of flavours it contains.

Cloudy brown beer, not much of a head. Rich beer! Sumptuous! Raisans and figs add to rich porty tones. The crisp dry finish has some more port and raisans. Aftertaste of rich raisan fruit cake! Warming afterglow. Lovely!

Bottle at home 2007 bottle ... Big thanks to TheCheeseMan for this ... Deep red/brown Deep rich nose ... down down deeper and down ... raisins ... cheese ... the nose of an aged barley wine ... rich syrupy tones ... alchohol is kicking its way to the front but held back by a rich sweet flavour ... lots of raisings ... some caramel ... figs ... in the end seem just a bit to in your face... and just a bit rough in its finnish
