Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2005
A deep red-brown beer with a disappearing brown head. The aroma is malty with strong notes of chocolate and alcohol, combined with lesser roated notes - nice. The flavor is lovely alcoholic - burning the mouth, but also notes of oranges and wood with a thick mouthfeel - leaning towards a portwine. Lovely.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of moejuck/Thomas_E. Pours a very unclear orangey brown with a tiny, off-white head. Fat aroma of overripe fruit. Very full-bodied, roasted malts, overripe fruits and a rather alcoholic finish. Low in carbonation - high in complexity. Very delicious indeed. 150807

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 27, 2008
Bottled. Amber colour, mediumsized beige creamy head. Aroma is wood, cellar, some grass and some mild fruityness. Flavour is the same in a good balance, but also shows some signs of alcohol and caramel. Still a wellbalanced and pleasant brew.

omhper (19324) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 25, 2008
Bottled, thanks jjpm74! Cloudy mahogany colour, creamy head. Thick and malty with massive amounts of caramel. Sweet and full sized, very soft and cottony. Mild, yet very flavourful - caramel and smoke is prominent. Soothing and warming. Great winter beer!

Cloudy dark brown beer with a red tinge. Thick tan head. Rich aged malt nose. Softish palate but with a decent carbonated bite. Sweet rich barleywine like malts. Soft and sumptuos with toffee and dark fruits. Finishes soft with sweet and sour malt which lasts well in to the aftertaste. Delicious!

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 15, 2007
Red mahogany color. Strong sweet caramel aroma, oxidized, and some hidden hop. Viscous malt flavor, a lot of sweet caramel, candi sugar, vin cuit, with a sticky sweet liquorice aftertaste; the hop is not enough aromatic, and the alcohol perception is maybe too much. Big but not complex and unbalanced.
