Ungstrup (29474) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2004
The aroma is very sweet with notes of caramel, alcohol, and peach. The color is light amber and it has a bubbly beige head, though fast disappearing. The flavor is very sweet malty caramel with notes of peaches and mango. The texture is sticky in the mouth. A nice "barley wine".

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 26, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Recently best known for having taking over production of world classic "Samiclaus" - but in general known for it’s strong bocks. Extremely high gravity with 23 degrees plato makes this a difficult one to drink. Comes close to requiring cutlery. Not much darker than an ordinary pils, no head whatsoever. Extremely full-bodied and sweet. Hard to drink, I recommend chewing. 040302

oh6gdx (20616) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2007
Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is sweet malts and hops along with some slight alcohol. Flavour is slightly metallic, quite fruity and malty with some nice burning alcohol. Long alcohol and toffee in the aftertaste. Not bad.

omhper (19644) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 4, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2003 Re-rate bottled. Pours thick and golden and forms a decent, but short lived head. Aroma of honey and oak. Full bodied, very malty, chewy. Loads of toffee, and the alcohol adds to the richness of the flavour. The low hop rate, in addition to the complex malt flavour makes this beer really unique. The cognac of beers is actually a good description.

Bottle. Best before 2004. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Sweet malty spicy yeasty fruity aroma. Sweet warming malty spicy flavor with hints of dark fruit. Has a sweet malty spicy finish.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Deep and strong without being too bitter. Dry finish with fruity undertones. Good. Reminded me of Samichlaus.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 24, 2003
Golden color. Sweet aroma, close to some barleywine, lighter; light malt and very ligh liquorice and banana. Good body strength and structure, not too sweet, final well bitter; quite malty. Not my favorite style, but well brewed; well balanced.
