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.

Ungstrup (34227) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2009
Bottled. A hazy deep red beer with a lazing of brown head. The aroma is powerful with strong notes of berries, alcohol, wine, and caramel. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of over ripe berries, wine, alcohol, caramel, and wood, leading to a dry, alcoholic, woody, and berry-like finish. The mouthfeel is very smooth. Lovely.

oh6gdx (25204) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 24, 2010
Bottled (from Ölkonsortiet). Very deep ambery brown colour, close to opaque, small beigeish brown head. Aroma is plum, some raisins, mild nuttyness as well as some winelike notes. Also some mild spicyness. Flavour is mildly toasted, some raisins, nuts, smoked wood as well as some rather plummy notes. As it warms up it gets more wooden and vanillaish. Brutally nice. Quite different from the other Barrel Aged Little Korknys... More? Yes please.

Bottled at Københavnske Øldage 2011. Cloudy dark brown, no head. Raisiny port aroma. Sweet and full bodied, malty and soft with lots of raisin. Warming with some acidity. A bit too raisiny for my liking.

Cloudy brown beer. Sweet aged malt nose. Light semi dry palate. Boozy malt with a trace of wood, leather and a little bitterness from the Port and subtle minerally dark fruits. Finishes crisp and semi dry with a warming afterglow. The Port shines through here and joins things together very well with the sweet malt.
