yespr (33803) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2010 From bottle, courtesy of kappldav123. Pours clear and golden, thick and with no head. Aroma is intense caramelish and eye burning alcohol. Smoked, meaty and sticky sweet caramelish going into a dry smoked finish. Strange in all dimensions. Interesting if anything. Smoked alcohol, not beer.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2010
Bottled. A ver dark golden beer - no head - I wonder why... The aroma is extremely powerful of alcohol - beware of inhaling too much, combined with strong notes of caramel and fruits, as well as hints of smoke. The flavor is very sweet with extreme strong notes of alcohol that burns and warms the tongue and the palate, combined with strong notes of caramel and perfume as well as some notes of smoke, leading to a dry caramel and alcoholic finish, where the alcohol burns the whole mouth. It ought to have 6 in palate.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2010 Bottle. Courtesy of yespr. Pours thick and syrupy amber with no head. Fat, meaty aroma with a strong alcohol that makes you cough. Thick body, sticky and syrupy with absolutely zero carbonation. Loads of caramel, smoky accents - quite a lot of smoke actually. Alcohol all the way through, burning, burning alcohol. A very interesting experiment. 080210

Hazy amber beer. Much to my surprise, pours with a little carbonation and forms a short lived white head. Toffee caramel nose. Syrupy palate. Starts with sweet toffee caramel, rapidly morphs into very salty barleywine malt and pretty intense spicy hops. Very spicy - piney. Leaves the mouth completely dry and with intense alcohol afterburn. Aniseed aftertaste in the numb mouth.

harrisoni (14619) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2010
Bottle at Chris’ Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia tasting. Thanks Ken for bringing this. Orange gold colour. Syrupy hot alcohol that burns your nose. Just a burning spirit. Some esters, toffee on aroma. Lots of caramel. Malty syrup. Then burn on end. Thanks Ken.

Christian (11493) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2010
Hazy amber with no head. Aroma of malt, fortified wine and dried fruit with sharp alcohol. The first second, before the alcohol burn, the flavour is fruity and malty, with a hint of smoke. Then arrives a wave of salmiak (salty licorice, popular in Scandinavia), before a hot alcohol finish that burns your mouth. Quite interesting.
