Sampled at DØE Beerfestival 2009, Valby. Pours an unclear brown beer with a weak head. The aroma is weak and sweet. The flavor is sweet and unbalanced. The palate is sticky, has a good body but misses some balance. Overall the beer is unbalanced. anders37 (27892) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2009

Flaske: Rødbrun øl med et lille skumhoved. Duft af humle. Klart en amerikansk inspireret barleywine. Smagen er godt balanceret imellem humle og malt. Dejligt bid til sidst, God øl. MiP (16083) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2009
Bottle at KØ09. Mild alcohol and caramel aroma. Cloudy dark amber colour. Small creamy head. The flavour is malty and slightly spicy. Hint of cream. OK bitterness in the finish. JorisPPattyn (10137) - BELGIUM - APR 26, 2009
No head, full stop. Red-chestnut beer, still. Oxydized, sweet bready and fruity. Prematurely aged Doppelbock. Some hops, no bitterness to speak of, rest is pure sweet liqueurish fusels. And as flat as a pancake, despite beign well-bodied and even viscous. Don’t know what’s wrong with it - bad keeping? Certainly not as bad as Jensen seems to think, IMO. But one thing is sure - this is NOTHING like American beer, let alone Barley wine.
