Maybe it has been saved too long - but it has been kept cool and dark so hopefully it still got som attitude. Red lack sealed 33 cl bottle number 117. No fizz when uncapped and when poured it shows that it is as good as flat. The appearence is brownish muddy with no head at all. The nose is good. It has lot of power and twisted alcohol notes but first of all a massive malty base topped with caramel and raisins and finaly lots of grains. The mouthfeel is af flat as the appearence - no co2 what so ever and as flat as water. Fortunately the taste is pretty good still. Again the alcohool profile is sticking out. Lots of bitterness that fades over in a caramelish desser-like feeling. Its a shame that its fkat because a nice fizzyness would have backed the taste up very nicely. The finish is long with a mild bitter sweetness.

Koelschtrinker (19101) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Durchaus herber Antrunk, der vorhandene Hopfen ist zwar erkennbar, weite Aromenbildungen fehlen aber, das Ganze ist unerwartet schwach. Dies wird sptestens mit dem Abebben der Aromen zum Ende deutlich, der Hopfen verabschiedet sich als erstes. Weich grasig, zum Ende in Teilen trocken. Der Alkohol ist hier brennend. Ein IPA, das frisch getrunken werden sollte und dann wohl auch deutlich mehr Potential hat. 12/8/9/8/12/8

Copenhagen Beer Festival. Think I heard this described as a Cross between a barleywine and a double IPA. Cloudy brown beer. Smooth palate. Nicely balanced rich malt and hops with the hops just becoming dominant. Warming finish and a bitterish aftertaste.

NosirIwont (2443) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2011
Bottle. Vintage 2008. Pours a hazy ruby/brown with a small off-white/beige head. Strong aroma; dry and malty with hops trying to break through. Flavour is sweet, malty and dry with notes of dark fruits and a strange tart bitterness; almost like red wine. Sweet, bitter finish with some alcohol thrown in. Almost no carbonation. 17.03.11.

RasmusOtt (2624) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2014 Bottle from 2008. Pours redish hazy brown with no head. Aroma of raisin, sweet malts, weak hops, oak and some alcohol. Taste add some vinous notes and has some warming alcohol. maybe a bit deprecated - Tasted like a barley wine/old ale

Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2011
Bottle at home. Bottled February 2009, most hop flavors are gone, but whats left is an amazing barley wine. Fruity sweet brew, thick bodied, beautiful color. Well balanced. Would love to taste a fresh sample next to this though, to be able to determine what the aging has done to this brew.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Cloudy/chunky brown pour with a small foamy head. Aroma of caramel malt, sweet ripe fruit and citrus hops. Flavor is sweet and malty with just a touch of hop bitterness on the finish. Good.

Nisse666 (6871) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2010
Bottle thx HenrikS, cons 2010-12-05, Gteborg BB Dec 2013 Bottle 134! AR: stored porto, roasted malt, a bit peppar, a bit earth tones and perhaps rotten egg reveles after beeing poured after beeing poured. AP: soapy dark brown with reddish tone colored body, wee transpareent and diminshing head F: soap, roasted malt, great long bitterness, pruns, sea salt, raisin, wonder if this one was of (sneaking a bit on the other rates) and seeams so, the alcohol level is evedent. When think about it, its getting more and more into shade of an old "jul must"

Pours a hazy brown with a tanned head. Smells of Amarillo. Sweet with a strong hops profile of aromas of Amarillo and grapefruits. Medium bodied. Good.

Another thanks to Gene!. Bottle pours cloudy burnt toffee with almost no head. Aroma shows notes of caramel, candied fruit, and sweet/spicy hops. Flavor shows the same with a touch of yeast and earth. Overall body is moderate, with a lightly bitter finish.
