From tap. Pours hazy deep orange with a lacing white head. Aroma is dry breadish malty towards wet cardboard. Barley wine fruity too. Flavour is intense overripe fruity with a dry slight roasted malt base. Dense fruity and malty lingering finish with a solid dry and bitterhops flavour.

Ungstrup (29851) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2005
An orange beer with a small disappearing off-white head. The aroma is of alcohol, peaches, and other fruits. The flavor has strong notes of peach, and the alcohol burns the mouth, but at the same time the mouthfeel is smooth, and the end dry. Nice one.

Bottled. Dark orange colour, small white head. Aroma is alcohol, malts and strawish hops. Also has some caramel and sugar in it. Flavour is quite the same but is even sweeter than the aroma, and has some rye and burnt notes in it also.

madmitch76 (16117) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2010
14th July 2008. Hazy dark amber beer. Low carbonation. Unusual barleywine. Starts like a cheap super strong lager - malty but also bready with a pinch of caraway. There is a brief pineapple sweet note in the middle before giving way to a spirity finish. However the spirity finish is not the usual brandy/porty tones that are often found but has more of vodka/gin feel to the bitterish finish. Unusual but very drinkable.

fiulijn (15371) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2006
Deep amber color; small but persistent head. Malty nose, and sweet caramel. Medium thickness, quite oily mouthfeel; round; malty, but with more caramel than other examples; the alcohol is too warming; some hop resins. At the end the bitterness is well blended with the malt. Solid and well brewed, without thrills.
