COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: En stærk øl af Barley Wine typen. Rund, blød og næsten som en cognac. Den er udelukkende brygget af malt og humle og har derfor en særdeles kraftig og intens smag af ølbrygningens hovedingredienser. Har lagret minimum et år, og øllene kan derefter gemmes i op til ti år. Den lange lagring giver øllen en rund fylde og afrunder alkoholsmagen. Kan serveres som aperitif eller til en kop kaffe i stil med en cognac. Nydes ved 8-10 grader.

English: A strong barley wine, round and soft, comparable to brandy. Made solely from malt and hops it has a powerful and intense taste. Brøckhouse Vintage has been stored for at least one year and will keep for at least another 10 years. The long storage process adds to the full-bodied character and rounds off the alcohol. Can be served as an aperitif or accompanying a cup of coffee like brandy. Best served at 8-10 degrees celsius.

yespr (47545) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours brown, murky with alcing off-white head. Wineous and dried fruity aroma. Flavour is sweet caramel, dried fruit and slight woody. Solid alcohol smoothness. Ends with a lingering bitterness and woody note. Light woody to nutty note.

Ungstrup (38384) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2006
A hazy orange beer with a light colored head. The aroma is sweet and alcoholic with some notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet and again dominated by the alcohol, but also with strong notes of over ripe fruit, leading to a dry metallic end - I guess the metal comes from the alcohol. This is a very mainstream Barley Wine - the style can perform so much better than this example, hence I find it boring.

Hazy dark brown beer. Soft palate. This 2004 vintage is holding up well. Malt doesn’t taste aged. Slightly bitter toffee caramel. Finishes with a little aniseed alcohol and a touch of heat. Nice enough but I could not drink much.

Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Slightly hazy amber with tiny, floating particles. Small, off-white head. Vinous aroma with distinctive alcohol. Full-bodied with notes of sherry - perhaps even cognac - and overripe plums. Warming alcoholic finish - a true sipping beer. 291005
