yespr (40453) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2008
33 cL bottle, 9%. Pours hazy brown with a collapsing tan head. Light acidic to citric nose with a light malty note beneath. Flavour is caramel malty with a nice chocolate smoothness and a light yeast note. Nice lingering and flavourful finish, hides the 9% well though.

Ungstrup (34350) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2005
A hazy deep red beer with a nice light brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of berries and spices as well as hints of alcohol. The flavor is pretty sweet with notes of caramel and berries, leading to a dry woody end.

Red colour with a small fast disappearing head. Sweet aroma with notes of berries and acidic notes. Sweet flavour with notes of berries, dried fruit and acidic notes. Slightly bitter finish. Not bad, but not the best barley wine I’ve had.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2009
Bottled. Deep reddish brown colour with mediumsized slightly off-white head. Aroma is caramel malts, some slight alcohol, mild spices as well as some mild chocolaty notes. Flavour is being quite much the same, but the alcohol shows a bit better. Yet the alcohol fits in quite well

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Suppose chestnut coloured is the closest you come to describing this. Chestnut with an orange glow and a small, beige head. Hazy with a bottle sediment. Vinous aroma with notes of almonds and raisins. Very complex taste with notes of dried fruits - raisins in particular. It also has touches of delicate desert wine and marzipan. Incredibly lovely - this really is my kinda beer. 230805

Bottled at RBESG. Nut brown, nera no head. Sweet, somewhat syprupy and raisiny. Near full bodied with loads of caramelly malt and butterscotch. Light salty finish. Rich and intriguing.

madmitch76 (22102) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2010
1st October 2008. Cloudy dark brown beer. Chocolatey malt with a slightly sour undertone - almost like an aged scotch ale. There is a subtle creamy sweetness in the mid followed by a sharp effervescent sting in the finish. All hangs together well. Tasty and complex.

fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2003
Hazy brown-amber color. Light malt aroma and caramel; yeast. Ordinary flavor, quite dry, just with some caramel. Phenol.
