Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2009
Bottled. A dark chestnut colored beer with a tan head. The aroma is quite strong with strong notes of citrusy hops, alcohol, and caramel - as well as hints of smoke. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of caramel, combined with medium notes of citrusy hops, bread, malt, and alcohol, as well as a light touch of smoke, leading to a lightly bitter finish, where roasted notes, alcohol, and smoke lingers for a long time - the smoke note gets stronger as time passes. The body is sirupy thick, and the alcohol tickles the tongue and palate, and leaves a light burn on the tongue. A Barley Wine with smoke - I like the idea.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2009
Bottle 50 cl. Pours an almost clear amber with a small off-white head. Sweetish caramellish nose. Quite full-bodied, lots of burned caramel. Only a very discreet bitterness. I really need some more hops to counterbalance the massive caramel sweetness. 170509

Bottled@Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Deep rubyish brown colour, not much head. Aroma is spices, leather, some notes of fruits and mild earthyness as well. Flavour is quite much the same along with some hints of alcohol. Still rather well balanced and nice.

omhper (18966) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2009
Bottled At Bishop’s Arms SoFo, Stockholm. Ckloudy, near black, no head. Orangey nose with licorice behind. Sweet and powerful with heavy doses of tar and asphalt mixed with grapefruit. Full bodied with dense mouthfeel. Syruped wrapped in licorice crowned with peppert alcohol. Feels more experimantal than complex or balanced. Alcohol and licorice dominates, and the sticky sweetness get a bit in the way.
