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.

It’s dark red mahogany with a creamy head. The aroma is vinous and delicious with notes of roasted malt, raisin, dark fruits, port wine, wood and chocolate. The moutfeel is quite oily. The flavor is sweet and vinous with notes of roasted malt, caramel, raisin, port wine, dark fruit, wood and very light hints of alcohol. It’s truly nice and very well balanced, I like it a lot...

andersand (529) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2009
Dark murky brown with a small ring of beige foam. Aroma is complex and fat malty, "smells sweet" a friend said. Yes sweet but with just the right touch of barrel and fat old malt. Flavour is way bigger than the aroma implies, huge chewy malt with notes of caramell, raisins, fig, light chocolate, wood and a lovely round port note throughout the whole drinking experience. The brew ends on a slightly sweet but very balanced note with lingering barrel notes and fruity malt. Mouthfeel is big and smooth with very little carbonation, perfect for the style. Lovely barleywine.

Bottle, bought @ Nørrebro Bryghus.
Dark brown, no real head. Lovely aroma, port, vinious, chocolate, raisins, figs, plums. Lovely mouthfeel, impressively creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is incredibly put together. Chocolate, oak, port (is apparent), notes of coffee, plums, raisins, chocolate. This is truly impressive. Holy sh** Sweet, elegant, well-balanced. Fuck all!

bierkoning (12197) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 2, 2009
Bottle, brought to Bodegraven by Jeppe, enjoyed @ home. Dark brown color. Porto, raisin and vanilla in the rich aroma. Extremely full bdoied, thick on the tongue. The essence of dried fruit, raisin, malt, molasses and vanilla fudge in the flavor. Hardly imaginable this is a beer. Rich, flavorful, strong and delicious.

Bottle in the rake, thanks to the brewer for leaving the samples. Alround rating: Huge toffee sweetness, brown sugar, bit of woodyness, the port does show itself but is mainyl hidden under the massive body. Too big for me.

Tasting at Nørrebro Bryghus. Pours a hazy brown with a beige head. Smells of port with hints of malts and alcohol. Quite sweet . Malty with aromas of caramel, dried fruits and residual sugars. Also some hints of roasted malts. Some residual sugars. Very full body. Medium to soft carbonation. Everything very well balanced.

Christian (12627) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2009 Red copper with a medium lasting, off-white head. Intense malty aroma, with slightly oxidized vineous alcohol blending perfectly with fruity port notes. Sweet and very smooth vineous and malty flavour. The port is playing perfectly along with the beer, making the perfect dessert beer. Just maybe a touch too sweet
