Same as the light version. Can´t taste much difference. So, why make two of them?

Hoprider (716) - DENMARK - JUN 21, 2017
This is s fine ass beer. For $2 you get bundles of sweet dark malts, caramel, coffee, bready yeast and just a light kiss from the booze which is super hidden at 9.5% abv. Some dark fruits as well and a malty, almost hvidtøl like aftertaste. Mouthfeel is alive but creamy. A true classic.

God mørk øl. Lidt for meget alkohol, men ellers fin og frisk i smagen. Flot udseende.

33cl aged bb07/2016, in 2016 EU Swap merci fonefan. - Indeed a strong, but not too heavy Doppelbock version of a Danish barleywine/red wine. Slick yet light brown malts with a rummy twist, diluted caramels...some vanilla in aroma - aged well, decent fare of oldschool quality but not too spectacular in terms of fullness of flavour for this abv.

25-FEB-2017, bottle @home, brought by Morten WHO got it as a present from Mads. Thx. both :-) Best Before 08 12 11 making it more than six years old. How old? Don’t know. Hazy, dark Brown with a low, lasting, off-white head. Taste is caramel, Wood, cherry, Brown sugar. Clearly old but still very much alive. Soft carbonation, low bitterness, sweet but never cloying. Nice. A lot better than I remember fresh versions.

Salwal (486) - GERMANY - NOV 24, 2016
From the bottle poured into nosing glass poures dark brown with little to no head. Nose of malts and booze. Taste is boozy herbal hops and unpleasent boozy finish... Nahhhh

Many thanks to Erzengel for sharing!
Pours clear dark amber colour with a small off-white head. Aroma of dark malt, sweet malt, caramel, nuts. Taste of dark strong malt, ripe dry fruits, caramel, raisins, nuts, some alcohol.

Erzengel (9086) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 18, 2016
Many thanks to fonefan for this bottle! Smooth malty beginning. Sweetish with a nice malty sweetish basis. Not much bitterness there, hints of roast. Easy to drink with a smooth and slightly sticky aftertaste, that is round and not too sweetish. Nice one.

Copenhagen 23/9 2016. 33 cl bottle from Meny. Chubby beer-drinking King with white beard on the label. On the back of the bottle they advise you to substitute your red wine with this noble brew. Looking at the ABV I am not too suprised by this suggestion. Pours clear Dark amber with off-white head. Head disappears quite fast. Lively carbonation. Looks like a Coca Cola. Aroma of sweet malts, stinky socks and metallic alcohol. Medium carbonation and thick palate. Flavor is sweet and sugary and certainly packs an alcoholic punch. Only very subdued bitterness. I like it betyder thai the light version - but I am NOT ready to trade in my red wine for this.

Niller (1706) - Hammel, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2016
Bottle from Meny, Hasle. Pours dark amber with off-white head. Aroma and taste is sweet malt, dark dried fruits, caramel, brown sugar, alcohol. Medium Body. Soft carbonation. Light bitter finish.
