yespr (37063) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pours amber, clear, with a crispy and somewhat lasting light orange head. Roasted caramel malt aroma. Soft sweet malty flavour with a mellow bitterness in the finish. Clear roasted note. Somewhat more sweet than the HP Bock but otherwise quite reminiscent of that. Nice.

Ungstrup (31499) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2008
Bottled. Sampled 3 years old. A deep red beer with a medium tan head. The aroma is very sweet and quite complex with notes of grain, berries, alcohol, wood, and some spices. The flavor is very sweet with notes of malt, berries, grain, brown sugar, and licorice, leading to a dry slightly bitter finish with notes of wood. The body is sirupy.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Beautiful, clear amber with a small, beige head. Sweetish, malty caramelish aroma. Quite full-bodied but considering the 8.4% ABV it’s almost thin! Extremely malty with a marked sweetness and distinct notes of caramel. Practically no bitterness. My guess is, that this is A-Z Ale speeded up with heaps of extra caramel malt and perhaps even malt aroma. Not a great brew. 081105

Bottle. Clear amber coloured with a small off white head. Sweet aroma of malts, caramel and rye bread. Very sweet flavour of malts and caramel. Tastes like a hvidtøl.

oh6gdx (23707) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2013
Bottled (thanks Anna!). Deep amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is hops, sweet malts, alcohol and some burnt sugary notes. Flaour is rather similar with alcohol pushing through a bit too much.

omhper (21897) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2008
Bottled. Mahogany colour, minimal head. Fruity nose. Sweet and medium bodied. Sweaty and un-firm, vague notes of coffee and over-ripe plums. Syrupy and strange, but with some odd rustic charm.

yngwie (15764) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2007 Bottled. Almost clear, dark reddish brown with a small off-white head. Caramel-sweet, malty aroma with yellow apples and some sourness. Sweetness and caramel dominates the flavor, with very little hoppiness, and some apple-notes. Too mild for a barely wine I think. Sticky on the palate, and a bit too thin-bodied. Unusual, as usual for Refsvindinge. Old rating 060115: 4-4-5-2-11-2.6. (070119)

33cl bottle @ Refsvindinge. Pours dark amber with a small creamy head and lacings. Nose is sweet and vinous of malts, toffee, caramel, brown sugar and dried fruits. Medium and smooth palate. Syrupy. Warmth and visible alcohol notes. OK
