This is a fantastic old ale. Lots of malts, Carmel, a touch of toasty flavors. Great beer. stobbe74 (3790) - DENMARK - JUL 22, 2011
Pours a clear and dark amber beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, caramel, bread and sweet spices. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness with alcoholwarmth. Overall an average beer. Rasmus40 (21988) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2011
Clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is quite sweet malty, caramel and a little alcohol. Flavor is very sweet and moderate bitter. Sweet finish with warming alcohol. 060711 Wolfenkopf (193) - Villa Park, Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2011
This one has a wonderful nutty and caramel aroma. There was no head to speak of. The brew is similar in color to a strong tea. There’s quite a lot to the taste. It is brutally high in the alcohol taste, though it is well offset with caramel. There is also a high element of bitterness, but it did not take away from my enjoyment. Bitterness and carbonation fight hard for supremacy over the palate with no clear winner. This one is a monster and you shouldn’t pass up the opportunity to try it. shrubber85 (11618) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Bottle. Peach, barley malt and alcohol aroma. Cloudy ruby-amber color with minimal head. Sweet light peach, barley and moderate alcohol flavor. Nice.

Bottle. Sweet caramel and malt aroma. Cloudy copper with just a thin off white ring around the top. Flavor follows aroma with sweet caramel and malt flavor as well as some dark fruit. DutchDrebus (6193) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2011
Red-ish orange colour with yeast. Smells super sweet and nasty. Tastes like sugared water. sfhodense (4788) - Odense NØ, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2011

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2017 At Fork on Lincoln. Amber dark Orange beer. Malty, sweet a little toffee. Thick but not too syrupy. Nice. Serving: Bottle Benzai (16682) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle @ home shared with DutchDrebus. Ruby red color, almost no head. Smells a little like barleywine to me. Little sweet, little sour, little wort, malts and grains in the taste. Oily texture. Decent.
