marcus (6592) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 24, 2011
On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours murky orange with almost no head and a fruity aroma. There is a very carbonated fruity caramel malt flavor with a bitter finish. I don’t know how Fraggle acquired this keg of ’06, but it has aged quite well and is a lot more mellow than the fresh versions.

thank you alohaC for this in our trade in feb. 07. bottle has 12-06 on it. when I popped the cap cap no pop or psst so I thought I waited too long to drink this, poured a nice reddish brown with no head. aroma chocolate, licorice, honey, plum, alcohol and some other ripe dark fruits. flavor little on the sour side, alcohol, sweet dark fruits, than the honey comes out and just a hint of hops. this did not taste like a double ipa had a hard time trying to find the hops , but this still was a very good beer to drink sitting next to a roaring fire in the fireplace a cold winter day

on tap at City Beer. Tried both batches. I preferred batch 2 as well. Golden hazy pour with medium head. Aroma of citrus and caramel. Good flavor with nice dryness.

AgentSteve (1627) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - JUL 12, 2008
I know this is a bit old, but on tap @ City Beer, the hop nose and profile were anything but subdued. Batch #2 was better than #1, so that is what I am rating.- Pours a medium dark ruddy brown with decent cream colored head. The nose is very pine, floral and pineapple hop. The flavor is a nice blend with the caramel malt added to the hop complexity, and the finish was dry yet sweet. A bit thin in the mouthfeel, but a very good beer overall.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2007
Bottle. Cloudy amber colour with a little head. Nice aroma of citrus, sweet malt, and notes of caramel. Malty flavour with a lot of hops, very hoppy but not so bitter than you may expect. Ends up little bitter with a varming feeling from the alcohol.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of aspidites. Hazy, orangey golden with an off-white head. Fat, concentrated aroma of caramel and peaches. Very full-bodied, plenty of caramel malt but otherwise completely dominated by a massive dose of aroma hops leaving peach- and citrus notes and a distinct bitterness. A huge beer with quite some personality. 310507

Ungstrup (29484) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2007
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a lazing tan head. The aroma is sweet with very strong notes of hops, but also quite malty and with some notes of alcohol. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of alcohol, which also leaves a slight burn on the sides of the tongue, leading to a powerfully hoppy end, where the hops leaves traces in the throat. A bit simple, but very nice.

madsberg (10309) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2007
Bottled. Light orange coloured. Unclear. Dense yellow brown coloured head. Pines, sweetness, loads of herbal notes in the aroma. Flavour of flowers, herbs and pine. Medium to full bodied. Very dry. Heavily bitter and alcohol dense end. Nice and warming.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 15, 2007
On tap at the 10th Annual San Diego Strong Ale Festival: Pours a transparent bright copper orange with a thin-lacing white head. Aroma is overflowing with fresh piny and grapefruity floral hops with good sweet pale malty balance. Body starts sweet and caramely malty with a nice hoppy bitter balance toward a citrusy crisp bittersweet, lightly-warming finish. Has a big, fresh hoppy and sweet malty flavor throughout, yet is very drinkable.
