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 (2509) - 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 (11027) - 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.

Dedollewaitor (13761) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2010
Rating # 3800. Tap @ Lord Nelson & Ørsted , Copenhagen. Pours amber / reddish with a small creamy white head. Nose is heavy. Acetone, alcohol, big hops and port. Very vinous. Sweet and fruity hoppy flavor with a bit of caramel and alcohol in the back. Actually only noticeable by the warmth it gives. Quite heavy and quite delicious "after hours" drink.

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JAN 10, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2010 Clear amber with a medium white head. Hoppy and sweet aroma with malty and caramel notes. Powerful grapefruit flavour with pine, loads od hops and malty notes. Extremely sweet. It’s just to much.

Skinnyviking (6782) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2010
Bottle. High creamy and lasting off-white head. Slightly hazy amber orange body. Hoppy apricot apple pine aroma. Pretty sweet and smooth flavor of apricot and sugar with a hint of pine. Alcohol hardly noticeable. Low carbonation. Long sweet aftertaste.

andersand (529) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2010
Dark amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is very hoppy, alcoholic and sweet with notes of caramell, grapefruit and orange and peach like liqour. Flavour starts on a really sweet caramell note with piney sharp hops and some alcohol. Ends on a really bitter and warming note with a dry lingering hop fruityness alongside light fudge and caramell. Body is big and sticky with some carbonation to lighten things up. Warms the belly (nicely placed alcohol) and way too drinkable for the abv, really dangerous.

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 7, 2010
Tap @ Lord Nelson, Cph.
Pours a very impressive clear red with a small, creamy, off-white head that soon ends up as a thin film. Aroma is fruity, there is a strong note of rhubarb at first, softly vinious (which is impressive), caramel, toffee, grapefruity hops. Very low, slightly prickly carbonation, super oily mouthfeel. Flavour starts very, very sweet with lots of caramel. But this is luckily balanced well by alcohol and a powerful hops dose. Very dry in the finish actually. There are sherry notes everywhere, but still feels like a beer with rather chewy malts (almost crisp, even). The aftertaste, though, is sublime. The bitterness stays on my tongue and the top of my throat, while the warmth settles nicely in my belly. It is lovely non-alcoholic, yet still very strong. Very good for what it’s attempting, though I might prefer a Big Worse.
