COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Luxuriously rich in character, this warming winter ale delivers over 10% alcohol in an oh-so-seductive manner. Deliciously fruity flavors lie under a bracing hop nose.

Ungstrup (29017) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 19, 2004
A clear red beer with a yellow or orange head. The aroma is sweet hoppy with notes of oranges and alcohol. The flavor is rather sweet with a lot of hops, oranges, and caramel. The hops burns your palate because it is extremely hoppy. A great beer for me - but only for hop lovers.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a hazy, orangey brown with a small, off-white head. Fat aroma of caramel. Very solid and full-bodied with plenty of caramel and notes of overripe fruit. Hoppy - but not overly so - finish. 031206

oh6gdx (20216) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 7, 2007
Bottled (bottled 29.12.2004, thanks heemer77!). Nutbrown colour with beige small head. Leaves lace. Aroma is toffee, caramel malts, some spices and a bit of alcohol. Flavour is spicy, fruity, slightly yeasty and some caramel malts. The alcohol is hidden oh-so-well, it just shows as a bit warming feeling while drinking. In the aftertaste the alcohol gives a nice sticking feeling on the tongue, while the flavour is flowery hops and some toffee. A very wellbalanced beer!

Red-brown, bitter, vinuos and complex. Typical American style barleywine. Delicious.

Hazy red-mahogany color; small creamy head; it actually pours not as viscous and more carbonated than expected. There is a good malt aroma, a bit nutty, honey too. The body strength is limited by the carbonation and medium-high alcohol perception. Good malt and caramel flavor, sweet but not syrupy, with a strong final nutty bitterness. Good and balanced beer, but not extraordinary as I thought previously.

Hazy copper color. Impressive hoppy aroma, fruity and flowery; wonderful malt, caramel. A bit oily, thick; it’s a malt juice! Nuts? Powerful, but well mixed, explosion of bitterness.
