Ungstrup (29367) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2007
Bottled. A hazy dark amber beer with a fast disappearing tan head. The aroma is sweet with powerful notes of caramel, but also lighter notes of malt. The flavor is sweet malty with powerful notes of caramel as well as lighter notes of alcohol, leading to a dry bitter caramel finish. The body is thick - somewhat like drinking caramel soup - if that exists.

Bottled (Thanks MrWalker). A bit hazy amber reddish colour with mediumsized beige head. Aroma is plum, alcohol, candysugar and some fruity hops. Flavour is mainly the same, but with hops coming in more strong and balancing it up. Very wellbalanced and welldone Barley Wine.

omhper (19435) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 13, 2006
[Bottled, thanks MrWalker!] Clear reddish amber, minimal head.Striking aroma of grapefruit and caramel. Sweet and full bodied with fairly soft mouthfeel. The malt flavour is more prominent than in most American barley wines, but there are a good amount of aromatic hops as well. A very solid and well made barley wine with some personality of its own.

2012-12-11, at least 3 years old, 9.7% ABV, 7-5-7-3-14=36
Beautiful dark amber, red, mahogany color, with medium sized creamy head. Nice aroma, malt, caramel, fudge, light vanilla. Medium body strength; the mouthfeel is quite smooth; very moderate sweetness, nutty caramel flavor, a bit fruity; the bitterness is higher in the end, with also light oxidization. It’s not aging very well.

2005-12-17, 9.7% ABV, 9-4-8-4-17=42
Hazy dark amber color, thin head, thin bubbles. Aroma of malt, apricot, vanilla, caramel, phenol. Malty, good structure, not too mellow, with a good hoppiness. The final (powerful) is balanced with good quantities of malt, caramel, hop; warming. Very good.
