Pinball (10609) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2010
50cl bottle dark amber, smooth offwhite yellowish thick head. aroma is prickly strong boozy, flowery hops, eggyolk, malts, quite strong aroma but not very flavorfull. lots of punch. flavor is sweet malty, faint hoppy, boozy, but less boozy than 17.6% for sure, faint citric note. orange. Need some time to adjust to such a high abv, but the beer itself is a good very sweet barley wine with some hops to balance.

faroeviking (10294) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 31, 2010
Unclear darkish amber colour, small white head ok lacing. Really sweet caramel toasty malty hoppy fruity aroma. Sticky mouthfeel. Very, very, very, very sweet cloying caramel syrup toasty malty frutish alco flavour, rather unpleasant. Long lasting too sweet alco finish.

sunevdj (3090) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2010
Bottle at release at Ølbutikken. Pours amber with an off-white head. Quite sweet with aromas of hops and abricots. Also some aromas of malts and caramel. Well balanced by the high hoppy bitterness. Hints of citric hops. Soft carbonation. Full bodied. Long dry finish. Would never have guessed on anywhere near 17.6 % alc. Wauw!

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2010
Bottled. Pours out in a cloudy ruby brown colour with a small bubbly off-white head. Huge aroma of port, treacle, cookies, caramel, mango, apricots, resin, white pepper and alcohol. Full-bodied with notes of caramel, fudge, burnt sugar, treacle,cookies and port with big sweaty hop notes of resin, red grapefruit and pine. Thick, thick body. Long warming finish of port, resin, caramel and apricots. Feels really potent but the alcohol is well-masked by the dense oily hop notes and caramel sauce.

Defreni (2327) - Husum, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2010
Fad: Fantastisk humlet tropeduft på en flot orange øl med et flot skumhoved. Super karbonering på en yderst velsmagende øl. Eneste minus som man nærmest ikke kan undgå er den meget varme alkoholsmag som øllen slutter af på. Virkelig en sipper, men meget god øl.

Christian (10781) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2010
Red amber with a small but lasting off-white head. The aroma has fruity peach and tangerine, some sherry notes, and vineous alcohol, bordering ever so slightly on paint thinner. Fruit and sherry in the flavour too, with a sugary sweetness. Big fruity hops at work to cover the alcohol, but doesn’t quite succeed.
