OleR (4786) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2008
500 ml bottle. Thin offwhite head quickly fading to ring of foam. Foggy, orangey-amber colored body. Sweet toffee aroma with a strong alcohol scent. Sugar and lot of sweet caramellish malts in the flavor. Evident alcohol presence, low bitterness. Big body, sticky texture. Warm malty finish. One-dimensional and boozy.

Defreni (2464) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2008
Flaske. Kraftigt duftende af alkohol og frugt. Et godt engelsk ord er pungent. Kraftig ikke så balanceret smag af alkohol der slår igennem. Engelsk inspireret BW, dog er der ikke noget til at bakke sødmen og alkoholen op.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 28, 2008
2 yr old keg. Cloudy dark orange. Low head. Big estery aroma with bit of phenols. Sweet, sticky mouthfeel, with a vineous touch, and notes of dried fruits and little caramel.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2008
Draught at Kobehavnske Oldage, May 2006. Hazy amber colour. Way too sweet for my palate and very boozy. Sticky mouthfeel. Desperately short of balancing bite. Strength alone doesn’t really make it. Not too impressed.

Bragesnak (5346) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2008

Miksu (4938) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 15, 2008
0.5 l bottle. Hazy amber color with small creamy head. Sweet, perfumed, candyish and raisiny aroma. Sweet, vinous, toffeish, raisiny, fruity and toasty flavor with notes of red wine, lots of warming alcohol and some hops in the background. Very thick and chewy mouthfeel. Good dessert beer.

Enjoyit (3448) - Vadum, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2008
Hazy amber of color with a beige head. An aroma of hops, malt and sweets. A flavor of hops, malt, caramel and corn.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 7, 2008
Bright orange colored with little yellow head. Cloudy appearance. Strong alcohol in raisinny aroma with some sweetness, port wine and grains. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is also raisinny with same sweetness and mild, still positive cardboard. Aftertaste dries still.
