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.

The head is medium, the body light. it smells alcoholic-sweet. The taste is alcoholic, sweet, a bit like chewing gum. In the aftertaste malty-alcoholic. 9/4/4/3/9/2

nazzty (921) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2012
Smelled faintly of urine and tasted disgusting. Probably the worst beer I ever tasted. Poured it into the sink after a few sips.

suprchunk (2342) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2012
2012 edition. Copper pour. Small film of white bibbles no lacing. Malty aroma with some hints of corn and a noticeable alcohol presence. Malty flavor that is quickly overrun by alcohol. Sweet, but hot. Not overly bad, but not balanced.

BlackHaddock (4124) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2012
April 2009: Bottle was the 2008 version, wierd label, picture of a bald blokes face, half blue half flesh coloured. Brown bottle holding 33cl of beer that was slightly out of date (two weeks actually). Poured into a Hoegaarden Grand Cru stemmed tulip shaped glass. Looked like a Dort, meaning a deep old gold colour, bright, clear and with a good white head on top. The head fell away early, as did my liking of the beer, read on. Smells like a good Belgian Blonde, yeasty and interesting. Tastes like a lager on acid, what a complete contrast to the look and smell, Christ this one strong and unhealthy brew, no wonder they number the bottles (mine was 2806169, I can’t believe they sold that many?), two sips and I could feel the headache begining to form. Alcohol for alcohols sake, I can imagine the Danish lowlife falling over on street corners after drinking a couple of these, not a pretty thought. The Danes do a few of these heavy super strength brews and I haven’t found one I really enjoyed yet. This was the last of the beers I obtained in Copenhagen last year, I picked a very poor selection to bring home and this is about the worst of a sorry bunch. My own fault, waited until just before leaving to buy anything and had to rush round a rough area corner shop to fill my suitcase with whatever I could find. This is one nasty piece of work

Golden with ok head. Aroma hops that diminish quickly. Taste sweet candy malt, honey on toasted bread. Alcohol notable. Medium/full body. Text thick. Finish sweet and alcohol. A surprise, much better than the ratings.

Very sweet in flavor and a very alcoholic taste. Amber in color with a white head.

LoFi (1595) - 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 (1422) - 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 (1372) - 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 (1242) - 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.
