fonefan (39784) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2007
Bottle. Clear medium amber color with a small, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, light hoppy citrus. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. It is very hard to find any alcoholic tast in it. (091007)

Ungstrup (30970) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2007
Bottled. A deep red beer with a nice orangey head. The aroma is a bit on the light side, but what is there is sweet combined with notes of caramel, alcohol, dusty hops, peaches, and some over ripe fruits. The flavor is very sweet and quite powerful with strong notes of caramel and grapefruit, and medium notes of peaches, and alcohol, leading to a sweet bitter end with notes of alcohol and grapefruit lingering around.

Papsoe (25072) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2006
(On tap) Hazy amber golden with an off-white head. Sweetish caramel nose with loads of alcohol. Huge body with a shipload of caramel and and extremely warming alcohol before a hoppy finish. The quintessence of a British style winter sipping beer. 200506

madmitch76 (18998) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2010
6th May 2010. Copenhagen Beer Festival. Cloudy amber beer. No head. Wet dog and malt nose. Dry and semi crisp palate. Light dry toffee malt with an alcoholic bite. Softer toffee malt comes through with some spicy licorice. Overall the beer feels a bit tired.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2011 Bottle. Pours a hazy, orange body with a beige head. Heavy malty aroma with beef-stock and sweetness, as well as fruity hops. Sweet and fruity flavor too, with a beef-stocky, long malty finish. Full body. Can’t really decide if it’s lovely or just nice, I guess it’s just nice, but that ain’t bad either. Rating: 7-4-7-4-14-3.6. 071228

Bottle, as Vintage Beer 2008. A clear-looking dark amber beer with a minimal head. Quite oily pour. Sugary, malty and slightly meaty nose where there’s also room for a touch of licorice, some hops and a gose of caramel. Warming on the palate, rounded and full-bodied. Sufficient carbonation. The flavor has mostly caramel maltyness and fruityness, hints of licorice and dried fruits. Lasting and warming finish. A nice barley wine, without being world class in any way. 110716
