COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: 512 bottles of 37,5 cl made in the original 2007 version. A later 2009 version was released in 2011.

Danish: En Barley wine på 12% alk. Efter gæring har denne øl lagret i 9 måneder på ståltank, hvorefter den er lagret yderligere 12 måneder på Niepoort fade. Duften i denne ekstremt intense og komplekse øl er domineret af kraftige malttoner, hvor også rosiner og nødder trænger sig på. Smagen er fyldig, vinøs og portvinspræget med blød eg bag. Den lange eftersmag er varm og alkoholisk med en let sødme.

phredrik (1010) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - MAY 31, 2011
2009 version bottled @ CBF. Pours murky brown, small light brown head. Nose has sweet oak, port wine, prunes, dates, leather, fig puree, caramel, some musky basement, notes of mature cheese, a bit funky, which Im’ guessing comes from the barrel. Taste has lots of sweetness, caramel, figs, dates, chocolate, some funky cheese here as well, light sourness from the barrel, port noes, leather. Really delicious. Looking forward to trying the 2007 version.

Bottle. Aroma of plums, figs and brown sugar. Unclear brown colour with a red tone and a small beige head. Sweet portwine like flavour with slight sourness in the finish. Long pleasant aftertaste of ripe plums and alcohol.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2011
375ml bottle, packaged August 2009 and aged about 1.5 years in the bottle. The pour yields a dark and hazy plummy brown body. A small gathering of khaki foam circles the surface, lasting a good while, but leaving just minimal spotting behind. Sheeting is dense and sudsy. The aroma is insanely rich and inviting, showing a varied blend of dark fruits, including sweet figs, dates, and raisins, as well as more acidic plums, prunes, and black cherries. Browned caramel and toffee lurk beneath, velvety, smooth, and only slightly alcoholic. Toasted nuts lend further depth. The barrel suggests of velvety vanilla and currants, . Flavors follow suit, sweet and fruity from start to finish, loaded with dried and concentrated red raisin, plum, cherry, and seemingly every other conceivable dark fruit varietal. Caramel and brown sugar are intertwined, as is scorched honey and soft chocolate, yet they all manage to grant the fruit the starring role. The palate is lush and smooth, showing a very slight (and welcomed) oxidation and appropriately soft carbonation. Though sugary, the warming alcohol somehow manages to lighten things a bit, making it dangerously drinkable. I must say that the barrel application is perfect for the base beer. It destroys the bourbon barrel version. Great beer.

egajdzis (5336) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2011
Red mahogany color with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of red wine, dark fruits, caramel, wood, vanilla, and faint alcohol. Taste of dark fruits, caramel, light nuts, vanilla, red wine, and finishing with resiny wood and light alcohol. This expression is head and shoulders above the regular Little Korkey I had bottled years before this.

rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2011
0.6l bottle from the LCBO. Appearance: Pours an opaque black with a tiny, frothy head that dissipated quickly. Aroma: Very sweet, notes of honey, vanilla, strong hints of grape, cherries, other fruits. Smells fantastic. Palate: thick (but not too thick), creamy, incredibly rich, more carbonation than expected. Very pleasant. Taste: very sweet, slightly bitter, medium saltiness, not sour at all. Very complex taste, lots of fruity notes, but also a fantastic aftertaste that is a strange mixed of roasted nuts, oatmeal and caramel, with a slight hint of chocolate. Incredible ale.

RasmusOtt (1110) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2014 Pours a hazy dark amber. Aroma is filled with dark nuances from different fruits (figs, prunes and raisins) and malts along with a very vinous smell. In the taste I got figs, prunes, dates, raisins, nuts, port wine, and some warming alcohol at the end! Really nice brew from Nørrebro!

Habanero (2617) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2010
Bottled. Pours hazy, deep mahogany brown with a littel, short lasting, beige head. Flat carbonation. Nose of vanilla, roasted malt, wood, dark fruit and earthy, port notes. Sweet flavour of caramel, honey, raisins, plums and riped figs. Oily texture. A little malt bitterness in the end. Just enjoyable.

Defreni (2602) - Husum, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2010
Flaske: Rødbrun uden en skumkrone. Men den manglende karbonering er ikke et stort problem da det er en fadlagret barleywine. Duften er sød med kraftige toner af portvin og sødlig malt. Smagen er nuancer af sødme der igen bygger udfra portvin med tørret frugt og en anelse træ. Fin fin øl.
