37.5 cL bottle. Pours hazy deep amber with a huge creamy and tan head. Aroma is malty, caramelish and light fruity. Mild smoked and dark malty. Smooth smoked, roasted and only vague hoppy and bitter. Lingering lovely malty and dense roasted caramelish. Bitterness nicely breaking the smoked notes into the finish. Fantastic.

Ungstrup (37861) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2010
Bottled. A slightly hazy deep red beer with a tan head. The aroma has notes of wood, hops, over ripe fruits, dust, and burnt malt - a bit weird. The flavor has strong notes of roasted malt, dextrose, wood, iodine, and Islay whiskey, as well some notes of caramel, leading to a dry iodine, whiskey, and woody finish. Too much for my liking. Thanks yespr for sharing.

joergen (28377) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2010
Bottle at home. Clear orange brown coloured with a huge beige head. Sweet aroma of caramel, dried fruits, hops and citrus with notes of oak. Sweet flavour of caramel, dried fruits, hops, grape fruits, oak, vanilla and peat. Dry hoppy finish.

anders37 (26678) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity hoppy aroma with hints of grapefruit. Fruity hoppy grapefruit flavor with some woody hints. Has a fruity malty hoppy bitter grapefruit finish.

oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2010
Bottled. Brown colour, small head. Aroma is sweet fruits, wooden barrel and some liquorice. Flavour is quite much the same. 1000 IBU is quite much nowhere to be found, even 100 would be hard to imagine.

omhper (25243) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2010
Bottled. Clear brown, small head. Aroma of salty whisky and resiny hops. Full bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Caramel and oak. Strangely the 1000 IBUs seem to have been drowned in caramel and whisky. Sure, the finish is bitter, but not crazily so. What is crazy is to first use half the hop harvest in the northern hemisphere, concentrate it to a tiny bottle, and then hide it with oak aging. Whatever works is good I guess, and this actually tastes good...

Bottle at Borefts Beer Festival 2010, courtesy of Mikkel and the boys - thanks guys! This one is slightly sweeter than the non-barrel version. The barrel does not overwhelm - oak is present in the aroma and the finish. Nice stuff.

Papsoe (25062) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2010
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours an almost clear brown with a lacing beige head. Aroma is almost purely iodine. Medium body, surprisingly carbonated, lots of peat and iodine with a bitter finish. Rather disgusting for a non-Islay fan. 110510

Cloudy dark brown beer, tan head. Wet wood nose. Light dry palate, smooth. A brief hot of malt with a little milk chocolate. But that dies away quickly and gives way to dry woody herbs. It’s smooth and rich but where are the hops? Where is the bitterness? I don’t understand this beer!
