It has a caramel smell with biscuit and apricots present. It is very cloudy and a darker pale yellow with minimal head. It has a strong floral and alcohol taste with hints of alcohol. It is quite pleasing except for the alcohol aftertaste.

APPEARANCE - Opaque, cloudy, no head, some lacing, amber. AROMA/SCENT - Hops, sweet, pine, malts. TASTE - Hops, bitter, pine, nutty, caramel, brown sugar, bread, toffee MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Thick, no carbonation, smooth, creamy, warming, heavy, syrupy. VALUE - $7.99 for 12-oz bottle. Good deal for import? OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - ABV surprisingly well-hidden. I wish there was a bit more carbonation, but what do you expect at ABV 14%?

Bottled. Drinking this 02/24/15. No idea what the bottling date is. Pours clear orange ruby color. Small white ring of lacing. Aroma is like a really hoppy barleywine. Lots of heat from the 14%. Sweet sticky toffee, some fig and date notes, maybe a bit of burnt sugar, honey, some citrus (orange), grapefruit. Very complex aroma. Flavor is hoppy, boozy, lots of toffee, fig, vanilla notes. Bitter finish. This drinks 100% like a barleywine. Hoppy finish. Reminds me of 21st Amendmentís lower da boom (which is a favorite of mine). Iíve been told this drinks like aged DFH 120. I have never had DFH 120, but thatís supposed to drink like a barleywine over time. This is exactly that. Great beer.

GarrettB (1169) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 16, 2015
June 20th, 2013 - Hereís a Double IPA thatís like a delicious, Danish breakfast in a bottle. Why? The aroma chockablock full of tasty early morning ingredients: caramel and sweet apple (pancake toppings) and the very underrated American cereal "Apple Jacks." For the more natural breakfast food consumer, thereís also a nice sliver of mango in the aroma. The flavor brings more carbohydrates, including rye and buckwheat pancakes, and something uncharacteristically breakfast: a heavy booze notes. The aroma and flavor deliver very different experiences, but I enjoy both, and regret seeing the "Retired" tag here.

villevav (301) - FINLAND - JAN 4, 2015
Tuoksussa runsaasti appelsiinia. Todella voimakkaan humaloitu maku; jonkinlainen humalan saturoitumisraja lienee jo saavutettu. Korkea alkoholipitoisuus jšttšš suuhun hieman suolaisen jšlkimaun.

slowrunner77 (6600) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 18, 2014
"The Mikkeller version of a 120 I guess, though this seems at least a little closer to an IPA. Smells of citrusy and floral hops, along with a healthy dose of sweet biscuity malt. Quite sweet and moderately bitter flavor. Candied citrus and a bit of pine or evergreen. Feel is full, and a bit sticky. Well carbonated and good head for such a strong beer. Alcohol definitely shows as this is very warming, but not hot for the abv."

POLK (2219) - HÝrning, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2014
Cloudy orange color. Fresh hoppy. Intense burning alcohol following fine with the heavy hop flavor and high bitterness.

Bottle. Pours clear amber color with quickly disappearing head. (I think the alcohol is eating it) Nose is sweet citrus and a lot of malt. Taste is similar once you get through the alcohol burn.

StilleStorm (1001) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 8, 2014
DWF; Pours hazy orange with off-white head. Nosetrils fills with tropic fruity, malt, alchol, citrus and caramel sweets. Taste is heavy sweet, alchol, heavy bitter, balancing and lasting. Body is full, texture is creamy, carbonation is flat to soft.
