COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Årgangsøllen er brygget ved pilsnermetoden, det vil sige af pilsnermalt. Ved tilsætning af brygsirup under processen opnås et højere sukkerindhold, som ved gæring giver den meget høje alkoholstyrke på de nuværende 10,6% alkoholvolumen.
Wiibroe Årgangsøl har en mørkgylden farve og en lys skumkrone. Smagen er frisk og syrlig, kombineret med en let sødme. Ekstra tilsætning af humle giver Årgangsøllen en duft som en mildt krydret blomstereng.
Wiibroe Årgangsøl lagde ud med en alkoholprocent på 8,9 i 1989. I de følgende år steg alkoholprocenten med 0,1% hvert år indtil 2000, hvor Wiibroe lagde sig fast på 10,6% og er nu en af Danmarks stærkeste specialøl.
Igennem de sidste 20 år har Årgangsøllen været udsmykket af forskellige danske kunstnere, der hver især har givet deres bud på årgangsøllens etiket.

LoFi (1550) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 25, 2012
2011 bottle, Nr. 643682 (seems very limited... or does it mean something else). Golden, smaller off-white head, some lacing. Aroma: sweet maltiness, fruity, grainy, candy. Taste: very sweet, candy (hallonbåtar, zoo), low grassy bitterness, alcohol. Sticky mouthfeel. Quite acceptable actually.

Tranquillity (1405) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 23, 2012
Aroma of malt, taste of alcohol and... Danish beer? 2009 edition, almost no head. Light orange body, short finish.

TEJA (1261) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 2, 2012
Bottle from TW, thanks. Sweet malty aroma. Solid golden color with a beige lace. Sweet malty taste but lacks complexity and a too small bitterness to make it balanced.

pentaz (1215) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2012
Bottle - 2012 edition. Dark golden pour with off-white head. Aroma is sweet with malt, alcohol and maybe a hint of hops? Taste is likewise sweet and boozy. Ends with alcohol-burn. Light carbonation. Not as bad as expected from previous endeavours, but I still fail to see the point.

mzaar (1508) - Varberg, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2011
Arom: blommor och en aning citrus, och gräs. Inte alls dumt. Men så fort skummet har lagt sig slår alkoholen till och tar helt över dofterna. Tyvärr. Smak: Bassett´s winegums marinerade i alkohol. Faktiskt inte alls dumt. Men varför så hög alkoholprocent?

Christian (11021) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2011
Golden with a lasting white head. Aroma of grain, apple peel and alcohol. Sweet and alcoholic flavour with a spicy touch.

ogivlado (5539) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 18, 2011
Beer No. 95 on my tour through Austria, Germany and Denmark.
Canned 500ml. -from the can in the train from Copenhagen to Nykøbing Falster. Vintage 2011. Sweet alcoholic nose. Sweet malty, alcoholic and vegetables with notes of glue in the finish. No matter how I tried hardly drinkable.

pivnizub (8737) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 13, 2011
Bottle (recolte 2009): Golden to deep golden, small foamy layer, some floaties visible; bisquity-alcoholic nose, loads of caramel underneath, full sweet flavour, full bodied; woody and brandy-like sweet finish. Strong and boring......

SimonRoller (391) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2011 golden and clear with white head. Really boozy and chemical flavour. Wont buy again. Bad....

lusikka (5955) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2011
330 ml bottle from Irma City, Copenhagen.
Pours a golden colour with a small thick head. Aroma of sweet malts and grassy hops. Flavour of sweet malts, grassy hops, strong sweet fruits and some solvent-like alcohol. Medium bodied, thick mouthfeel and a mouth-drying, malty, sweet finish. A cheap alcohol bomb.
