madsberg (10711) - 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.

Bov (10485) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 24, 2010
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

KimJohansen (10347) - 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.

faroeviking (10284) - 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.

adnielsen (10070) - 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.

hopdog (9829) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2011
12.7oz bottle (18.5%). Poured a deeper yellow color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of alcohol, yeast, fruitiness, and some citrus rinds. Tastes of alcohol, yeast, honey sweetness, fruity, candi sugar, and caramel.

Bottle 375ml 17,6% version @ home
Pours hazy brown with a small off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel and alcohol. Taste is heavy sweet and medium bitter with a long sweet warming alcohol finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is flat.

Sammy (9537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2014
Big alcohol, very caramel. Caramel colour. OK drinkability even though shared, but with food.

mcberko (9343) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2014
375mL bottle, pours a dark amber with small bubbles as head. Nose brings out lots of caramel, dark fruits and alcohol - very potent. Flavour screams dark fruits, with loads of dates, figs, toffee, port, grapes and loads of alcohol. Too much for me - the alcohol is overburdening, though it’s not really that boozy for the ABV. Complex and drinkable slowly, but it gets really harsh after a while. Not my thing at all.

Rune (9340) - 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).
