Ungstrup (36498) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2004
An unclear brown beer with a yellow-orange head. The aroma is extremely hopped on a sweet malty background and with notes of alcohol and oranges. The flavor is great; very hoppy with strong notes of oranges, chocolate and alcohol running over the tongue. Thanks to Mads Berg for sharing this wonderful beer.

omhper (24635) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2004 Bottled, thanks hopsrus! Cloudy copper colour with thick, creamy head. Fruity, vinous nose with notes of smoke and plums. Deeply malty. Salty licorice and hops builds up to a very bitter finish. Sticks out in a crowds of barley wines. Has developed a lot in the past 6 months. Old rating (April 2004)Copper colour, small beige head. Vinous smokey ash aroma. Very rich and salty with notes of blood and metal, but hops, peppey alcohol and salty spices dominates. Extremely powerful, but also confusing and unusual. Still a bit raw, should probably have waited in the celalr for a while. (5/4/7/3/12)

Cloudy dark brown beer, no real head. Aged malt nose, strong. Semi soft and semi dry palate. Aged malt and unsweet chocolate. Pinch of salt. A little sweet cream. Finishes soft and dry. Nicely flavoured and aged barleywine - really quite moorish.

Koelschtrinker (19464) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 2, 2011
Bedingt würziger Antrunk, deutlich herb, es fehlt etwas an Süße. Etwas alkoholisch scharf, gleichzeitig aber auch wässrig und eher unaromatisch. Die Würzigkeit lässt auch im Mittelteil zu wünschen übrig, wenig süß, sehr leicht und direkt wieder verschwindend kräuterartig. Leicht schokoladig, sehr leicht alkoholisch scharf. Danke an den Doppelbock für das Bier. /9/9/9/8/9

Oakes (16969) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2004
Cloudy dark amber; aroma of maple, allspice, molasses. Very sweet body, mapley with a big back bitterness. As the hops don't show much in the aroma or flavour, just in bitterness, the flavour is not cohesive. It will be a great one, in a few years, but right now it's too young to be better than decent.
