25 cL bottle, thanks to faroeviking. Pours hazy brown with a little lacing off-white head. Aroma is heavy hoppy fruity with a sweet caramel malt beneath. Flavour is solid caramel malt with a touch of liqourice mixing in with the fruity hops note. Finish is lingering sweet, fruity and malty.

Ungstrup (34690) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2008
Bottled. A murky red-brown beer with a huge orange-tan head. The aroma is sweet with notes of citrus, dusty hops, prunes, and fruit. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of over ripe fruits shortly followed by the alcohol that gives the beer body, and tickles the tongue. The flavor also contains notes of prunes, wood, and caramel. The finish is dry and alcoholic.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2007
(Bottle 25 cl) Courtesy of faroeviking. Pours a hazy, dark amber with a creamy, light brown head. Aroma is overripe fruit, oily hops and alcohol. Very full body. Sweetish notes of caramel and overripe fruit and a somewhat medicinal touch. The bitterness is surprisingly subdued - especially considering it being a Ølfabrikken brew. I guess more sorta an English style Barleywine. 171207

Cloudy red brown beer with thick frothy biscuit coloured head. Nose of malt and wet dog! Creamy malt head leads to a softish palate. Strong aged malt with traces of chocolate. Some well repressed hops and a little aniseed. A well rounded and fullsome barleywine.

TBone (16197) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2009
Bottled 25cl (batch #262, BB 10/2012) @Pikkulintu
Deep ruby color, small steady beige head. Malts, molasses, plums, dark fruits, some vanilla in the nose. Still quite sweet, licorice, plums, molasses (caramel), liquerish soft palate. It has just right amount of alcohol in the flavor. As description says, quite English style barley wine. Pleasant.
