madsberg (10142) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2010
Bottled. Amber coloured. Uncelar. Small light brown head. Aroma is sweet, alcoholdense, spiced, caramelly and full of ripe fruits. Flavour is cloyingly sweet, full of overripe fruits, spice and alcohol. Medium bodied. Sweetish and fruity end. Hmmm. Not really to my likings.

courtesy of fiulijn - quite clear amber colour and with a moderate head retention; aroma of marzipan and chewy malts with notes of alcohol and solvant; full-bodied and very sweet; a huge alcohol kick, residual sugars and almondy hoppy finish, slightly fruity

adnielsen (8963) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 15, 2011
Bottle @ home. Burgundy, Dr. Pepper colored appearance with really no head. Strong, sweet, berry, vinous, boozy nose. Strong, boozy, sweet berry, incredibly malty flavor with a big warming finish. Not really my cup of tea.

jtclockwork (8183) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Bottle thanks to Matt. I missed this one when it was on the shelves and have been wanting it ever since. Pours muddy brown. Nose/taste of dates, dark fruit, toffee malt, rich caramel, fried plantain, spice, sherry and port wine. Rich. A little alcohol burn in finish. Medium body. Good sipper.

Rune (7956) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2010
250ml from tap at Ørsted Ølbar & Café. Murky, dark reddish body, no head. Aroma of sweet dried fruits. Sweet hops and dried fruits in flavour, dominated by apricots. Moderate impact of alcohol on the palate. Alright sipper that gets a bit too sweet (Copenhagen, 09.05.2010).

JorisPPattyn (7879) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 11, 2010
Faintly hazed foxy red beer with medium, sligthly yellowish head as whipped eggwhite. Fruity aromas jumping out of the glass, especially passion fruit, also mango, orange, grapefruit, white grapes. And USA hops, getting drier, hopbales like. Very fruity bittersweet flavour; bitter oranges, kumquats, grapefruit, pineapple- and strawberryesters. Caramel, toffee, maple syrup and fusels. Oh, and some hops... Alcoholwarming, very slick-oily. Fiery, yet drinkable. Warming up, benzeneFruitester bomb, superbly hopped, yet adequate malts. Mikkeller seems to get better every month... though this one reminds me of Mikkels’ first homebrew Barley Wine I ever tasted.

BMan1113VR (7853) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 15, 2010
Bottle (17.6%) Pours with a large off-white head and a hazy orange body. Good legs and lace. Aroma of orange, burnt orange, caramel and burnt caramel. koji, champagne grapes, and pear eau d’vie. Taste is alcohol, dark fruits, bitter, big, cloying sweet and burning. Syrupy mouthfeel and medium bubbles. 120 like without the good hops..
