Aroma of caramel, dark dried fruits, citrus and alcohol. The flavor is lots of sweet caramel malt and also a bit hop bitterness, very light alcohol burn. Medium to full body with mild carbonation and a thick, syrupy mouth feel. I like the big hop presence in this one, just wish the sweetness was toned down a bit. slowrunner77 (12157) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 6, 2014
says barelywine right on the bottle, so I’m not sure why this is classed in the catch all strong ale category. It’s almost a classic barleywine. Malty, fruity, caramel, toffee...got the ruby tinge down. Then there’s the hops. A sh-- ton of simcoe. So much you can see them, though I’m willing to bet this had some age on it. interesting addition, adds complexity and some bitterness, citrus peel. Not sure if it’d have been better without the dry hopping or not, though. Good brew." jahouse (14) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Pear/red apple aromas. light, hazy copper color. strong sweet upfront, grapefruit finish. finish is bitter. good beer overall but not a barley wine as advertised. CanIHave4Beers (4188) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Pours a very hazy brownish red with a small head and some lacing on the glass. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2014
The aroma is brandy & toffee... it’s sweet & rich and then also sort of floral.
The flavor offers some neat tobacco, apple, wood, & plenty of caramel. It’s ashy, sweet, and weird... but sort of delightfully weird. It’s defiantly got some hop forward flavors, but mydude that shared it with me aged it... the bottle said barleywine, and well... it does taste like one wherein the hops have fallen off significantly. It’s a pretty boozy beer too.
So yeah, that’s Amager Batch One.
500ml bottle, shared with friends over a game of Catan. Mostly hazy pinkish reddish grapefruit like appearance. Thin khaki head. Plenty dots and ropes of lace. Looks pretty good overall. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of creamy, light carbonation. Good full body. Easy to sip. Nose is a little metallic, but flavor is very nice and rich. Dark fruit, good earthy hop. Caramel malt. Hint of citrus. A bit more bitter and hoppy than the typical barleywine, especially for a euro barleywine. It’s labeled barleywine, but definitely does taste more like an american strong. Big bitterness, light sweet, just a very pleasant light bite. Tasty, easy to sip stuff. Pleasant hop character. Good rich malt, but not too sweet. Nice, unique assertive stuff. Better than expected.

Rated on 7-10-2009 (Bottle) This beer forms a small smooth off-white head that mostly diminished, cloudy orange brown body and one ring of lacing. The Aroma is caramel malt, earthy hops and sweet. The Taste is sweet, bitter, caramel malt, earthy hops, grapefruit and boozy. The Palate is tingly and this beer is medium-full bodied. Overall, this is a very tasty beer, a sipping beer, worth trying, and a beer I would drink again if it came my way. Cousin_Larry (895) - - OCT 2, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2013 I’m tired of trying to write like a critic. Everything about this brew is solid - nice pour, good color, sweet aroma, and a taste that’s a lot like a porter or thin coffee stout. Nekronos (4174) - Xalapa, MEXICO - SEP 1, 2013
NIce but with this dannish marked hoppyness. Had it at World of beer Orlando close to UCF. ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a very dark reddish brown. Little to no head. Aroma amazing. Raisins, rum, nuttiness, cookie dough. Body lively, finish very boozy, rye-like overtones. Delicious. shigadeyo (3749) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2013
