KimJohansen (10404) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2010
Clear dark amber with no head. Sweet aroma with roasted malt, caramel, overripe fruits and dark overripe fruits. Sweet flavour with roasted malt, caramel and overripe fruits. Finished very sweet. Not bad for the style.

Ungstrup (31419) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2010
Bottled. A deep red beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and over ripe fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of liquid caramel, malt, and alcohol, leading to a sweet caramel finish. Nice and sticky.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2010
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours a clear orangey brown with hardly any head. Aroma is sweet and alcoholic with a smoky whiff. Solid body, no carbonation. Very sweet accents of caramel and overripe fruit. No bitterness at all but a very distinct alcohol. Lovely. 010510

33 cL bottle, courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours clear and golden deep amber with a fully gone head. Aroma is dense dark malty, roasted and breadish with a mild chocolate note. Sweet, sticky and distinct caramelish flavoured. Smooth caramelish finish. Nice and lingering.

sdriessen (320) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 8, 2009
Courtesy of Donfardz64! Lots of yeast in the nose, with toffee, plum, raisin notes. Lots of alcohol in this aroma, shrouding the milk chocolate malts. Flavours involve and clove-like spice. Far too sweet for my liking - brown sugar, raisins, mollasses, candied sugar... and so on, all manifested from the malts assuming there is no added sugar. This would explain the price... Has a spirit-like, alcoholic feeling in the mouth (14.4%!) with a tad of bitterness in the finish. Not really worth the price. It’s cheaper for a more enjoyable Thomas Hardy’s, 2004!

donfardz64 (538) - Wellington, New Zealand, NEW ZEALAND - APR 21, 2009
Pours deep ruby red, a thin head formed around the edges. Very lightly carbonated. A sweet port like aroma, full of raisins, plum - dark fruit. Very sweet in the mouth, brown sugar like. Slight carbonation tingles on the tongue. Raisiny flavours are dominant. Brown sugar and molasses. I don’t get any alcohol flavour, which is a great achievement considering the ABV.

DuffMan (8318) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 29, 2009
I found this little gem at Centre City New World Market in Dunedin. Pours a deep dark mahogany that is nearly still. There is some evidence of carbonation but no real head forms. Aroma of brown sugar, toffee, and spiced pears. Heavy mouthfeel with medium carbonation gives it a velvety mouthfeel. Very sweet, lots of residual sugars here. A little boozy, with more fruit character than bitter hops. Not a lot of complexity here though. This may be my first kiwi barley wine, and it is a fair crack at a difficult style.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 17, 2008
Bottle with - and courtesy of - yalnikim, a syrupy pour, brown with no head. A herbal aroma, vegemite and aniseed. A very syrupy palate, a bit sickly. Herbal flavours and soya sauce. Doesn’t quite work for me - felt like a low alcohol port (I’m not a big port fan).
